You can sleep comfortably in these cars for the night

Road trips are becoming increasingly popular. They are cheaper than tours, are not tied to a specific place and allow you to see more non-standard locations. However, if you go on a long trip, it is important to have enough space for sleeping to stop at car camping sites.

Engineerie has compiled a list of top cars that will be comfortable to sleep in.

Full-size crossovers

Volvo XC90

With the rear seats at the initial position, the XC90 has enough space for seven passengers. If you fold them down, you can lie down with comfort. The model's suspension system is designed to withstand rough terrain and keep you safe.


The BMW X7 can seat seven passengers or become a comfortable sleeper just like its predecessor. The X7 is packed with impressive features like a power tailgate, heated seats, cruise control, sunroof, separate charging ports and rear touch buttons, making it the perfect vehicle for camping and sleeping. However, it's worth noting that the X7 is an expensive option because of its premium offerings.
