The best cars designed to get dirty

Posted on 26 January 2014 by Tony Santos

The summer has come to an end and with the weather turning more hazardous, the UK will see more 4x4s and sports utility vehicles hitting the streets. Sales of these will increase from October onwards – and those searching for the latest new car offers can find them at Cars2Buy.

These vehicles are particularly popular at this time of year because people want a car that will stand up well to the tests of the wind, rain and snow.

However, they are also the vehicle of choice for those who are required to navigate difficult terrain that gets even more treacherous when the weather takes a turn for the worse.

These might include farmers who need to make their way down muggy tracks or those living in rural areas who have to travel along country lanes.

But what are the best cars that are designed to get dirty? Read on below to see the vehicles that are perfect for going off-road and are designed to be driven to the edge of the world.

Land Rover Freelander

The Land Rover Freelander encompasses everything that is good about a 4×4 – it’s tough, dynamic and economic. It has been developed for use both on and off-road and offers plenty by way of miles to the gallon. What’s more, the vehicle is very spacious – making it ideal for those using their 4×4 for either carting round the family or for carrying their work equipment. The Land Rover Freelander is very affordable – it typically retails at just under £15,000.

Also coming in under the £15,000 mark is the Jeep Wrangler – an iconic vehicle that is highly regarded among lovers of off-road driving and has been around for around a quarter of a century. The Wrangler is distinctive for its bulky, yet smart looks and is favoured by those who want to mix high aesthetics with practicality.

Volkswagen Tiguan

The Volkswagen Tiguan boasts brilliant handling and would be an ideal purchase for motorists wanting to feel in complete control of their vehicle as they make their way over bumpy countryside surfaces. It is an easy car to drive and will be popular among those who place space at the top of their list of requirements – the boot is large and a deep loading bay can be created when the rear seats are folded flat. The vehicle typically retails at around £14,999 and places lots of emphasis on economy, meaning it could be perfect for those concerned about cost.

Hyundai Santa Fe Elite

Families looking for a 4×4 that caters to all their needs may not have to look much further than the Hyundai Santa Fe. The vehicle is available in both a five-seater model and a seven-seater variant – which is good news for bigger families who want to fit everyone in one car and not two. Price is another attraction for the Hyundai Sante Fe, as would-be buyers should be able to pick up the vehicle for around £11,500.
