January 27, 2015

It’s safe to say that, at some point, we’ve all dreamed of going on our perfect road trip – after all, what’s not to love about the idea? No responsibilities, total relaxation, being able to explore the country and, of course, tearing up the tarmac in your dream car! If you’re yet to find your own road trip companion and need a little inspiration, today’s edition of Top 5 Tuesdays takes a look at the greatest cars ever to grace the open road. If you’re looking to get your hands on any of these awesome machines, our affordable car loans can help.

Subaru Forester

When a company as celebrated as Subaru calls this car their ‘best SUV ever’, you know this beast means business! This car is positively made for those challenging road trips that spiral into unexpected adventures. The Subaru Forester’s strength and dexterity, along with its hill start assist, towing VDC and an affordable starting price of £25,495, make this car one of the most capable off-roaders out there.

Ford Flex

Another market giant is the Ford Flex, although it may lack in maneuverability and off-road when compared with the likes of the Subaru Forester. However, the car more than makes up for that when it comes to space and efficiency. This car is definitely a must-have for anyone planning a road trip with family or friends. The Ford Flex’s main selling point is its comfort factor – and with a range of entertainment options, safety features and a starting price of £29,100, it’s definitely a respectable choice for any road trip.

Ford Mustang GT500

Adrenaline lovers won’t regret choosing the GT500 for their road trip – and with an unbelievable starting price of just £23,800, this is one mighty fine piece of auto-engineering.

Harley Davidson
