Best Cars for the Countryside

November 26, 2021

If you live in the countryside you may be looking for a car that is sturdy, reliable and can take you safely from A to B. If you are unsure of the best vehicles to be driven in the countryside then look no further as we have a list of the best countryside cars.

Mini Countryman

With the Mini Countryman, there is a big hint in the name, it is called a countryman so it is therefore designed to be used in the countryside. The model really is great to be driven in the countryside as it is sturdy and it holds on to the road really well. In 2010 the car was awarded a 5-star crash rating by Euro NCAP, this shows the car is extremely safe and you will feel protected by the car whilst you are driving down narrow country roads. The latest generation came out in 2017 and it is packed with all the latest technology and it is fair to say that the car is very luxurious, so you can drive around the countryside comfortably.

Audi Q7

The Audi Q7 is a full-size luxury SUV. If you are looking for a car that is large in size and extremely luxurious then this is the car for you. The car was first unveiled at the 2005 Frankfurt Motor Show and it has been very successful since its release. The reason why we have featured the Audi Q7 as a car for the countryside is that SUVs typically perform well on uneven roads and it can sometimes be unnerving driving around narrow lanes, especially in the winter but SUVs always offer a bit extra protection. The car closely rivals the Porsche Cayenne, Volkswagen Toureg, and Bentley Bentayga.


The BMW X3 is a high-end car that is ideal to be used on country roads. If you are looking for a car that is eye-catching and really easy to drive then the BMW X3 really does serve that purpose. The price of the car starts at £40,000 so it may not be suitable for everyone’s budget, but second-hand versions of the car are considerably cheaper so it shows good deals can be done. The car has been popular since its release in 2003 and many people who live in the countryside use the BMW X3 because of its comfort and reliability.

Porsche Cayenne

The Porsche Cayenne is a mid-size luxury SUV. As mentioned previously it is a rival of the Audi Q7. Both cars are suitable to be driven in the countryside, however, the Porsche Cayenne is more luxurious and it has a bigger price tag. Whether you choose either car really depends on your budget and your expectations of a car. There is also a plug-in hybrid version of the car, which is ideal for those who are ready to turn towards using electric vehicles. The Porsche Cayenne isn’t just ideal to be driven in the countryside, it is a car that many people aspire to own, but if you live in the countryside the car will do you justice on the country roads.

Jaguar I-Pace

If you live in the countryside and you are ready to make the switch to a fully electric vehicle, then you may want to consider the Jaguar I-Pace. The Jaguar I-Pace is a good-sized car and it really holds on to the roads well. Just because you live in the countryside doesn’t mean you can’t switch to a fully electric vehicle. The Jaguar I-Pace has a decent range of 292 miles, so it is very unlikely that your battery will go flat whilst driving around the countryside. With an electric vehicle, you just need to make sure that you have sufficient charging equipment at home and then there is no need to worry about the battery going flat.

Range Rover Velar

The Range Rover Velar is a car that is very versatile and drives well on various types of roads. If you are looking for a car that is young, fun, and gives you lots of safety whilst driving around narrow lanes, then the Range Rover Velar will do exactly that. Even though many people in urban areas tend to drive Range Rovers, they are actually designed to be used in the countryside, as Land Rover owns the company and Land Rovers are typical country cars. The Range Rover became popular in urban areas because the build quality and design are so good. If you are looking for a bit of glamour then the Velar is the way to go.
