Kelley Blue Book releases list of best road-trip cars

Posted On Thu, May 19, 2011

With Memorial Day weekend in the offing, two words may spring to mind for driving enthusiasts - road trip.

With these people in mind, Kelley Blue Book has recently published a list of some cars that the group considers to be ideal for road warriors of all ages.

Chief among these, according to KBB, is the 2012 Ford Focus. The group says that the Focus is particularly ideal for students, as the vehicle gets good mileage - approximately 38 miles per gallon - and is relatively inexpensive.

Another car KBB recommends is the 2011 Camaro Convertible, primarily because of its powerful engine, as it has 426 horsepower and is V8-enhanced.

The groups says convertible connoisseurs may be pleased with the 2011 Audi A5 Cabriole as it's "convertible enough to soak up all the sun [drivers] can track down."

For road trippers who are looking for something more conservative, KBB recommends the 2011 Honda CR-V, while those craving a car with flash may enjoy the 2011 Chevy Corvette.

Auto insurance may also be something motorists want to look into this Memorial Day, as the last weekend in May is traditionally one of the busiest three-day periods of the year.
