Best cars for a staycation

Best cars for a staycation

So much for that summer holiday this year. Instead of packing suitcases and jumping on a plane, many of us will be loading up the car and enjoying some downtime in the UK.

Best Cars To Use For A Staycation In The UK.

As with most things though, you need to make sure you’ve got the right car for the job, especially if you’ve got a partner, kids and perhaps a pooch in tow. So, with that in mind, this list of cars might be the perfect companion for your trip. Each comes with plenty of cabin space, a comfortable drive and loads of luggage room.


Audi A6

The Audi A6 is one of the class leaders in the executive saloon sector. It’s great to drive, solidly built, has a superb interior and, if you go for the Avant estate version, has plenty of space in the cabin as well as a sizeable boot.

This latest generation version really moves the game on though, with improved on-board technology, including a sleek touch screen infotainment system that really makes you feel like you're in something very premium.

SEAT Tarraco

With MPVs a dying breed, many motorists are opting for the huge number of family 4x4s that we’re seeing in this class. SEAT is one of the latest to launch a seven-seat SUV with the Tarraco.

As you’d expect for a seven-seater, it’s spacious, practical and looks smart alongside some of the competition. Because it’s part of the Volkswagen family, there’s also a decent engine choice and most of the tech is tried and trusted.

Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace

The Tiguan has been around for a while now and has built a reputation for being a stylish and practical family SUV. But if you want a little more space, then the aptly named Tiguan Allspace might just be the answer.

Underneath it’s virtually the same car as the SEAT Tarraco, but it gets the Volkswagen treatment meaning a sleek infotainment system, virtual cockpit and strong levels of build quality. It may be well-equipped, but that’s largely because it’s expensive to buy, which is perhaps the only downside.

Land Rover Defender

For many the Land Rover Defender is a utilitarian 4x4 used by farmers and the military, but this latest generation version is a completely different proposition. Yes, it remains a thoroughly capable off-roader, but now it’s been given a much more upmarket feel – and price tag to match.

Not only can it tackle a muddy field, but it’s now better suited to life on the road too, meaning it’s comfortable at higher speeds and on country lanes.
