Best Used Cars for Spring Break

Do you have a reliable set of wheels to take you on your spring break voyage? If not, there’s no need to panic. Toyota of Clermont is here to help you find the perfect ride.

For starters, we recommend choosing a vehicle from our used car lot. This way you’ll put back some extra spending money without compromising the quality of your ride. And don’t worry, Toyota of Clermont has a wide variety of pre-owned vehicles to cater to every drive style.

We asked our Clermont technicians what qualities are most important for a spring break ride and are here to share their advice with you. Let’s take a look at what they said.

How to find the best used car for spring break

Good fuel economy

Most spring break plans involve a road trip, so it’s important you pick a used car that’s good on gas. If you’re looking for a sedan shoot for 35 mpg combined, if you’re looking for a truck go for 15 mpg combined, and if you’re looking for an SUV aim for 20 mpg combined.

Sufficient cargo space

You’ll want to select a used car with enough cargo space to fit all of your spring break gear. Trucks and SUVs make excellent road trip cars if you’re traveling with a big group. However, if you prefer a smaller ride you can still rock a hatchback or sedan just make sure they come with split-folding rear seats. These will allow you to create more storage space when necessary without having to drive a bigger car.

Comfortable interior

Long car rides can be brutal if you’re not comfortable. Be sure to pay attention to the quality of the interior, especially the seating and air conditioning. You don’t want your passengers to be miserable in the Florida heat. It will also help you if you come to the dealership with your seating preference ahead of time – leather or fabric-trimmed – do your research and you won’t have to compromise on comfort.

Entertainment features

Tech features such as Bluetooth, steering wheel mounted audio controls, and a premium audio system can really enhance a long drive. Make sure you always check out what entertainment technology the car has to offer before you close the deal. After all, every spring break road trip needs a soundtrack.

Up-to-date safety technology

Quality safety technology, like the Toyota Safety Sense system, is a must when you’re on a road trip. Always ask about the vehicle’s safety features and crash rating. We want you to have a fun spring break, but more importantly, we want you to have a safe one.
