Cars for Off Road Travel

Posted on 11 November, 2011

In today’s economy used cars have become even more popular. Used cars can be of exceptional value considering that they do not lose value as quickly as new cars do once they are driven. Many people want cars that are suitable for not only for driving city streets but ones that can also be driven off road. There are several different cars that feature four wheel drive capabilities that make them excellent choices for off road travel.
One four wheel drive that might be considered is the Fiat Panda 4×4. This model’s used price is quite inexpensive in comparison to the price tags on other models of cars. This model is an update on the original Panda 4×4 that was driven in the snow packed mountains. The new version of the Panda has been streamlined and is much more comfortable than its predecessor. This car is also much more economical. Keep in mind that this car isn’t made for speed. The car features a 1.2 litre engine. However, when driving off road high speeds aren’t always necessary especially when traveling over rugged terrain.
The Kia Sportage offers another choice when looking for a used car for off road travel. This car comes with four wheel drive models. Many are attracted to its style as well as its cabin. The Kia Sportage is a good value for the price. The Kia Sportage is an appealing blend of rugged features and the convenience of a hatchback. It handles well when driven off road.
Another option for off road travel is the used BMW X5. Many have compared the BMW X5 to other comparable models such as the Land Rover Freelander and Audi Q5. Comparisons revealed the BMW X5 was much more fun to drive. The X5 comes with a diesel engine. It also handles well in snowy conditions.
