Since we already shared our road trip packing tips with you, we asked around Toyota of North Charlotte and put together a list of features people look for in a vehicle they’re planning on taking road trips in.

Road trip features to get in your N Charlotte Toyota
Size of the vehicle
The size on your N Charlotte Toyota will depend on the amount of people you’re planing on road tripping with. People are generally happier in vehicles that give them more personal space. So if you’re kids are at that magical age where they fight a lot, consider getting a larger vehicle to help avoid potential problems.
If you’ve taken a road trip in uncomfortable seats, you’ll remember that trip forever for all the wrong reasons. Road trips are notorious for soar backs and numb legs. So when your car shopping near Charlotte, compare the seating options in the different Toyota models. Some seating features we recommend getting include:
- Supportive seats with lumbar support
- Reclining rear seating
- Spacious back rows
- Leather seats for easy adjusting
Car safety features are some of the most important features in a car. But you want to make sure that your Toyota is suited-up when you leave the Charlotte area with your family. So compare the safety features on the different Toyota models you’re considering.
Easy driving and entertainment features
Getting a vehicle with features that will make your driving easier and your family entertained are important to consider too. Vehicles with GPS, cruise control and Land Departure Alert will back up the driver on the road. And vehicles with built in entertainment systems and Bluetooth technology will entertain your family during the slow parts of the trip.
Perfect Toyota models for your road trip
