Top Five Best Used Cars For Road Trips

It’s summer, and for many of us, that means it’s time for a nice family vacation. If you are looking for a used car before you can go, though, these are the best used cars for road trips.


Toyota Camry

As a mid-size sedan, the Toyota Camry is small enough to get excellent fuel economy while also being big enough to accommodate the whole family and their cargo. Even older models of the Toyota Camry get an EPA-estimated highway mpg over 30, so you won’t have to fuel up as often on long trips.


Honda Accord

Honda is a popular choice for any driver looking for a reliable used car, but out of all of them we had to choose the Accord. With the Honda Accord, drivers get everyday comfort as well as fun, engaging performance. It also has the added bonus of excellent fuel economy.


Chevrolet Impala

While its full-size sedan design means that the Chevrolet Impala doesn’t get as much mileage as the other options on the list, it also means that the Impala is safe and accommodating. Industry critics describe the Impala’s ride as “luxurious,” so you’ll be traveling in style.


Hyundai Sonata

The Sonata offers a value-packed vehicle with generous trunk space for its segment. It’s also affordable and provides an efficient, sporty drive, with a comfortable and accommodating second row.


Ford Fusion

For those lovers of the Blue Oval, the Ford Fusion provides a versatile and practical family sedan that’s safe, economical, and fun to drive, due to its low starting price tag, good trunk space, and good performance.
