4 Best Car’s For Adventure Lovers

Honda Ridgeline

It may look and drive like a truck but it’s made to be a comfortable crossover. The 3.5-liter V6 engine clocks 18 mpg city/25 mpg highway, even while hauling a family of four, plus all their gear and a cooler, which stows neatly in the truck’s clever locking waterproof trunk located under the bed behind the rear axle. By far the best thing about this beauty is the lighted truck bed, complete with six speakers, which can double as a sleeping platform with the rear gate down. Honda even sells a tent that fits inside the bed.

The Verdict: A trustworthy ride for hauling all your snow gear without sacrificing mileage. $32,175 (with AWD).

Volvo V90 Cross Country

Perfect for driving through snowy mountains of Scandinavia — or just pretending you are. The Cross Country features ten-way-adjustable leather heated seats and a heated steering wheel. All of the car’s glass is laminated, cutting ambient noise to a dull murmur, even if you are driving on the loudest road. The eight inches of ground clearance provide a better off-road ride than many SUVs, yet it handles with the poise of a fast performance car. Additionally, Volvo is a highly-praised name in safety, so you know advanced options will come standard.

The Verdict: A Stunning alternative to the default luxury SUV. $55,300; estimated 22 mpg city/30 mpg highway.

Volkswagen Golf Alltrack

It’s lighter, steers more sharply, and feels sportier than any comparable SUV in its class. A 1.8-liter engine paired with a six-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission keeps torque in the perfect spot when climbing steep grades in its sport mode. It comes standard with an off-road setting that allows more wheel churn before the traction control kicks in, which will come in very handy if you’re trying to power out of mud or snow. On the interstate, the Alltrack defaults to luxe-sedan quiet, with superb sound deadening. The seats are supportive for long hauls, and stock amenities include fog lamps and smartphone integration via Apple CarPlay or Android Auto.

The Verdict: Performs very closely to the Volvo above without the steep price tag. $27,770; 22 mpg city/30 mpg highway.

Subaru Impreza

Subaru has upgraded the hatchback to be about 1.5 inches longer and wider, as well as sturdier. The firmly higher fuel economy disguises its sports-car handling. Credit the brand-new chassis, sport-tuned steering, all-wheel drive, and more than half an inch less ground clearance, which affords it glue-like grip on the road. The ­Impreza has a seriously spacious inter­ior and a lower roofline for improved aerodynamics and easier roof-rack access.

The Verdict: Certainly the best value on the list if you aren’t looking for any luxury upgrades. $19,215; 28 mpg city/38 mpg highway.
