Ever wanted to know what the perfect car is to take on a road trip? We asked carsales reviewer, Nadine Armstrong for her top tips on where to go and what to drive there. Nadine explains ‘There is the perfect car for the road trip of your dreams – or at least this weekend’s short-term dreams!’ And let me just tell you, that after reading her recommendations, I definitely want to go and sell my car so that I can get my hands on these new cars.
Going Solo: Tasmania in the Toyota Supra
When you want to escape the day-to-day on your own, you can afford to do it in a car that’s loud, brash and all about the driver. The greatly-anticipated, hottest thing on our roads right now, the all new Toyota Supra is powered by a 3.0-litre turbo-petrol six-cylinder engine that I think you’ll find will do you just fine.
Just for two: Melbourne to Port Campbell in the BMW M850i
With the top down and the heated seats (and neck warmers) as your friend, you can cruise for hours (around 4.5 in this instance) in the comfort of the BMW M850i. With the top down you’ll enjoy the seductive pop and crackle of the German drop top’s exhaust note – it’s something else. We’d suggest a lunch stop in Lorne
Family friendly: Brisbane to Byron in the Bentley Bentayga
Trust us, there’s no road trip too long when you’re behind the wheel, or in any seat to be honest, of the Bentley Bentayga. This road trip is about the journey, not the destination. With a twin-turbo 4.0-litre V8 under the bonnet this won’t be your most economical run – a moot point for Bentley owners – but it just might be your best ever.
