Best Road Trip Cars - Luxury Cars
Finally, who wouldn't want to head out on a long summer road trip in a big, luxury sedan? Fortunately, there are plenty of able land yachts with which to do so, but the Audi A8 might be the best road trip car for 2012. Redesigned for 2011, the Audi A8 delivers plenty of luxury, and it is even offered in two wheelbase lengths for when rear passengers demand even more space. Starting at $72,200, the price point for the 2013 Audi A8 is steep, but it delivers more than enough luxury and comfort to fit the bill for any road trip. Aside from the ample rear-seat room, the Audi A8 is also an amazing car to drive making it a good road trip car for passengers and drivers alike. The base 2013 Audi A8 now comes with a 3.0-liter supercharged V-6 that gets an EPA-estimated 28 mpg on the highway. A truck-like 23.8-gallon gas tank helps give the Audi A8 a driving range of 666 miles, and with premium gasoline required, it would cost approximately $64.29 on a 500-mile road trip. Other big luxury sedans that make good road trip cars include the Cadillac XTS, Mercedes-Benz S-Class and the Hyundai Equus.
