When you have to make long-distance drives on a regular basis, you want to have the best vehicle possible. But figuring out which aspects of a vehicle make road trips easier may not be too obvious, as there are both mechanical and comfort aspects that can play a huge role. If you want to know what the experts believe makes the perfect road-trip vehicle, then keep reading!

Best SUV for road trips

Comfort and Relaxation

Arguably the most important aspect is how comfortable the vehicle is, as no one wants to spend hours on end in a cramped or uncomfortable seat. This comfort can come from the ability to quiet the engine, the amount of storage space, and the amenities that can be found in the cab. The Jeep Cherokee for instance has heated seats and steering wheel, dual-zone automatic climate control, and a premium audio system to keep you entertained and block out distracting noises.

Look for vehicles with cruise control, or even better, adaptive cruise control, as these will allow you to temporarily stretch and readjust your leg positions while you drive!

Mechanical Aspects

When you are looking at the specs of different models, be on the lookout for the following mechanical features so that you can optimize your long-distance driving. Torque is key to delivering power to the wheels, and electronic power steering and stability control can assist you when the weather or other drivers make unexpected changes. The mechanical advancements of the last few decades have also made the engine much quieter, which is crucial for extended drives, as no one wants to listen to a roaring sound for hours.
