Top 10 Road Trip Vehicles

Top 10 Road Trip Vehicles 2008 MINI Clubman S

2008 MINI Cooper Clubman 1

2008 MINI Cooper Clubman
What we think
The Clubman hits all the right road trip notes. While not large by anyone’s standards, the car manages to seat four grown adults comfortably. The passenger club door makes piling into the rear seats less of a challenge and the barn-style rear doors make room for plenty of gear in the back. S trim delivers the same driving fun as the Clubman’s even more diminutive brothers, making your time behind the wheel as fun as you thought it would be.

At a glance
MSRP: $24,100
Engine and Drivetrain: Turbocharged 1.6-liter inline four-cylinder engine, 172 horsepower, 177 lb-ft of torque; 6-speed manual, 6-speed automatic transmission; front-wheel drive.
MPG: 26 city/34 highway (manual), 23 city/32 highway (auto)

2009 VW Tiguan

2009 Volkswagen Tiguan 2

2009 Volkswagen Tiguan
What we think
One part Jetta, one part BMW X3, the Tiguan manages to eloquently combine what’s to love about both. Powered by an inline four, this little rover gets respectable mileage while carrying cargo and friends down the road in style. Of course, this little V-dub’s low price tag means you can put your money to more important things—like fuel.

At a glance
MSRP: $23,200
Engine and Drivetrain: 2.0-liter inline four-cylinder engine, 200 horsepower, 206 lb-ft of torque; 6-speed automatic transmission; front wheel drive.
MPG: 18 city/25 highway

2008 Volvo V50

2008 Volvo V50 3

2008 Volvo V50
What we think
The V50 is the wagon we would have built. With a Dynaudio stereo system that offers some of the best sound in any vehicle and a unique free-floating center console, this Volvo’s interior is a pleasure on every level. The joys don’t stop there, as the V50 is available with a powerful turbocharged five-cylinder and all-wheel drive. Plenty of space, plus plenty of power, equals one great road trip rig.

At a glance
MSRP: $26,815
Engine and Drivetrain: Naturally aspirated 2.4-liter inline five-cylinder engine, 168 horsepower, 170 lb-ft of torque; turbocharged 2.5-liter inline five-cylinder engine, 227 horsepower, 236 lb-ft of torque; 5-speed automatic transmission; front-wheel drive with optional full-time all-wheel drive.
MPG: 20 city/28 highway (2.4, front-wheel drive), 19 city/27 highway (2.5, front-wheel drive), 18 city/26 highway (2.5, all-wheel drive)

2008 Audi A3 Sportback

2008 Audi A3 4

2008 Audi A3
What we think
Sure the A3 Sportback looks a little more wagon than some of the contenders out there, but the similarities to the grocery haulers of yore end there. This car is a rocket when equipped with the 250 horsepower 3.2-liter V-6 and full-time all-wheel drive. Even in four-cylinder trim, the Sportback manages to provide a fun driving experience for you and your friends as you tackle the open road.

At a glance
MSRP: $25,930
Engine and Drivetrain: 2.0-liter inline four-cylinder engine, 200 horsepower, 207 lb-ft of torque, 3.2-liter V-6 engine, 250 horsepower, 236 lb-...
