Best Cars for Camping and Road Trips

Who doesn’t love a holiday? The chance to get away from it all and relax, enjoy new experiences and come back feeling fully recharged – and with a fresh set of memories that will last a lifetime.

One of the best ways to unwind is with a camping holiday or road trip – or a combination of both. And perhaps the best method of travel is under your own steam, in a car that's designed to go the distance while delivering absolute comfort and convenience.

Here at Thame Cars, we stock a wide selection of high-quality used vehicles, and arguably, the best cars for road trips are SUVs – and we have some terrific options.

Our pre-loved SUVs include the Kia Sportage, Nissan Qashqai and ŠKODA Karoq, vehicles that more than qualify as some of the best cars for driving long distances. The Sportage, for example, is a highly regarded all-rounder thanks to its practical body and spacious front and rear passenger compartments.

It more than comfortably accommodates two full-size adults – or three younger travellers – in the back, and a 591-litre boot (petrol models) is one of the biggest in its class. What’s more, with rear seats folded, luggage volume grows to an enormous 1,780 litres, which means there’s plenty of space for camping equipment and the like. Of course, you can further increase cargo capacity with the addition of a bike carrier, roof rack or roof box.

SUVs are good towing vehicles too. The petrol or diesel Sportage, for example, can tow up to 1,650 kg, allowing you to attach a trailer or a four-berth caravan.
