The Honda CR-V is great for a trip out of the city. I have it because it is the most versatile vehicle I could find. It's rugged enough to handle dirt roads but still has good gas mileage. You can lower the back seats for extra cargo space which combines with the roof rack/bike rack to allow many possibilities. It has a usb/audio jack/Bluetooth compatibility, so any smart phone can hook into the stereo system for gps navigation.
Also this is a family car. If you need a carseat for your trip. I can put a Diono Radian EXT convertible car seat in the car.
