Best car to drive around Australia?

Asked by Richard Ulrich

I'm seeking your recommendation as to a car. We are retiring soon, and want to start driving around different parts of Australia. We live in WA and will start in that State, so the kays travelled will be long. We plan to go off road, but not extreme. There will be three people in the car and it will need to be useful around the suburbs. It doesn't have to fashionable, but must be very reliable. Our budget can be up to mid-$60s, but less is best. The Mitsubishi Triton dual-cab and Suzuki Vitara seem good compromises between proficiency and value for money.

You first need to decide the level of off-roading you will be doing because that will determine if you need a four-wheel drive or you only need an all-wheel drive SUV. From what you have told us I suspect that an SUV, such as a Kia Sorento, Toyota Kluger, or a Nissan X-Trail would be the best all-round vehicle for you. All of those would fit your budget, they will all go off-road to a reasonable degree, and they're all reliable. The Mitsubishi Triton is a hard-riding ute, which I don't think is what you want, but the Suzuki Grand Vitara is a good vehicle and would also fit your needs.
