6 CARS FOR ADVENTURES IN BC & BEYOND

The vehicles we drive are a reflection of who we are. Family focused folk go for minivans and spacious crossovers, those with a need for speed choose sports cars, and hands-on people opt for pickups to handle their heavy lifting. But what about those of us who crave adventure, love the outdoors, and have an active lifestyle? Whether you’re looking for a ride for your off-road routes, or a vehicle with room for all your camping, hiking, and climbing gear, there’s something for every kind of somebody at Richmond Auto Mall. So keep on living – and cruising – off the beaten path in one of these reliable, capable, and versatile vehicles.

1. Jeep Renegade

When it comes to adventurous vehicles, the Jeep Wrangler is a popular choice, but have you heard about its lesser known sibling? The Jeep Renegade is rugged, fun, efficient, and affordable. With superior handling and Best-in-Class 4x4 capability, the Renegade can ford through water, conquer rocky terrain, and climb steep mountainsides. It’s a versatile vehicle that offers smooth highway cruising as well as excellent off-roading capabilities, perfect for both city streets and uphill trails.

2. Land Rover Discovery Sport

This premium SUV is all about going further and discovering more. With a 2.0-litre turbocharged 4-cylinder engine and all-wheel drive, the Discovery Sport also comes with All Terrain Progress Control to help you tackle sand, snow, rocks, and mud. You can fit up to 7 passengers, or choose to keep it down to 5 for more cargo room. Have a seat inside its sophisticated interior, and you’ll understand why this vehicle is called a stylish, luxury crossover.

3. Audi A4 Allroad

If you’re an adventure-seeker looking for a more compact option, the Audi A4 Allroad may be the perfect fit. With its iconic quattro all-wheel drive, the A4 Allroad is a comfortable choice for your next adventure. Powering this expressive, powerful, and unique hatchback is a 2.0-litre turbocharged 4-cylinder 252 horsepower engine. It may not be as spacious as a full-sized SUV, but surfboards or kayaks store nicely on top of its long shape.

4. Mazda CX-5

Mazda’s CX-5 crossover is great for the practical adventurer. Choosing an affordable, fuel efficient vehicle means savings for new equipment and more trips. Rated Canada’s Best Small Utility Vehicle for 2018, you’ll fall in love with its elegant beauty and sophisticated engineering.
