How to arrive at a festival in style
A major part of the fun of going to a festival is the road trip. Listening to sweet playlists with your best friends, having great conversations, and of course, driving a fun vehicle to get there!
Whether you're going to the Rock 'N' Roll Festival in September or Stanthorpe Rocks in November, you'll want to arrive in a sweet ride, and the two below are perfect options. To get behind the wheel of one for yourself, car finance from AAA Finance is your solution.
1) Mazda MX-5
You see it in movies all the time, but driving along on a sunny day with the roof down inside a zippy convertible always looks like such a dream.
It doesn't have to stay a dream, though, because the new Mazda MX-5 is the perfect small car for your festival needs. It won the 2016 Wheels Car of the Year, as well as the World Car of the Year and Car Design of the Year. Safe to say it's had some good reviews.
The MX-5 looks super cool, but is also great on fuel consumption (using only 6.1 litres per 100 kilometres) and, as a convertible, can have the roof down to really enjoy those sunny days.
It has a cloth soft top that is automatically operated, so you don't even have to get out of the car to make the most of the hot summer sun. To add to how perfect this car is for road trips, the 2.0-litre Roadster GT model also comes with a 203-Watt Bose surround sound system. The beats won't stop when you leave the festival!
2) Toyota HiLux
For the travellers who want a little more off-roading ability than the Mazda offers, the Toyota HiLux is another great option for festival hopping.
As a ute, it has a huge amount of space for all of your belongings, or even your dog. Inside the cab, you can make it as luxurious or basic as you like, so if you want to go glamping then leather upholstery is the go. For the muddy festival-goer, cloth seats might be the better option.
The tray is the perfect place to keep your gear, and as the HiLux is one of the coolest four-wheel-drives ever produced, you'll look the part when you rock up with your favourite tunes pumping.
Both of these cars are great (and very different) options for the avid festival attendee. Not only will they get you there in style and with all of your gear, but you'll have a lot of fun on the way. To make driving these on your next road trip a reality, get in touch with AAA Finance today.
