Road trips are practically a national pastime when it comes to summer, and Hyundai helps you get the most out of that time on the road! Whether you’re heading out with friends or loading the whole family into the car for a trip, the 2016 Hyundai Accent is ready to get Virginia drivers just about anywhere.
With an EPA-estimated 38 MPG on the highway,* this nimble compact is exactly what you’re after for that long trip. Even better, the 2016 Accent hatchback provides 21.2 cubic feet of cargo space with the rear seats in place and over 90 cubic feet with the seats folded flat, which means you’ll be able to load up on passengers, luggage, and all of your other must-have items.
Your standard emergency kit should always be where you can get to it, with essentials like jumper cables, extra clothing, food, and water in case of an unexpected issue out on the road. The team at our Virginia Hyundai dealership knows that it doesn’t take an emergency to throw a wrench into your road trip, though.
When you’re out on the road for a long stretch, the beginnings of boredom or discomfort can be enough to throw your whole crew into a state of discontent. Planning ahead and packing some extra odds and ends can help to keep everyone in great spirits along the way!
Start by thinking about keeping things clean and comfortable on the road. Baby wipes are perfect for just about anything on a trip, from wiping up sticky spills in the car to freshening up on the fly.
Grabbing a plastic tablecloth or shower liner at the dollar store is a good idea, too. From covering questionable surfaces when eating or changing the baby to creating an impromptu seat cover after a messy day outdoors, it’s sure to come in handy.
Don’t forget to keep everyone occupied, also. When passengers get bored, it’s a recipe for disaster—especially kids! Whether it’s car-friendly games, all-ages podcasts, or audio books, keeping everyone’s attention on something fun is sure to keep the crew in better spirits. The result is a more pleasant and less distracted experience for you behind the wheel.
Whether you’re headed cross country or just out on a day trip, an efficient vehicle and some planning are sure to make for a road trip you’ll always remember!
