Halloween is approaching and it is time to once again think about the threat of the dead rising up. It could happen this year. 2016 could be the year of the Zombie and you have to be prepared. We know you can’t get a tank to squash as many zombies as you’d like. However, there are alternatives in the form of affordable cars.
Getting away at speed
The Zombies are coming. Some are stumbling along and some are sprinting, but you still have time. You and your friends can jump in that Ford Focus ST that has been abandoned and escape before the Zombies reach you and eat you.
The Ford Focus ST comes with a 2.0-litre engine throwing out 271 bhp. This is the car to get away with quickly thanks to an acceleration time from 0-60 mph in 5.7 seconds and can top out at 154 mph. Seriously this is the best getaway cars for when the zombies come.
If you want to get the family to safety, you need a strong, secure vehicle. You need a large beast of a car and that comes in the form of a Jeep Grand Cherokee. With the zombies bashing and clawing at the doors, you and your family will be safe and comfortable inside. It does also have the power to knock a few of them out of the way.
Dispensing with the crowd
Now for the fun part. Are you one of those people who just wants to smash a few zombies? Best to jump into the Land Rover Discovery and get going. Lock the doors and no one can get in. Switch on your zombie bashing playlist you’ve been preparing for years after watching all those zombie films and shows… the Discovery has a brilliant sound system.
Turn on that engine and begin dispensing the crowd. The louder the music, the faster the car and more those zombies will fly.
Saving people is your mission and you want to save as many of as possible. There is only one quick and spacious van available to you for this situation and that is the Ford Transit. Thanks to its strong body, this van can resist most zombie attacks and thanks to its stabilising technology, it is also very difficult to push over. You can save a few people thanks to the load space available in the rear.
The Skoda Superb is the car for those who wish to save as many items as possible before the Zombies reach their house. If you aiming for the safe zone, you will need a few suitcases full of clothes, food hampers and don’t forget iPads to distract the kids from the fact that zombies are trying to eat them.
The Superb comes with 625-litres of boot capacity and if you are going solo, you can drop those rear seats to fit more stuff in thanks to an overall capacity of 1760-litres.
Long distance escape
That safe zone could be very far away and you may not trust the petrol stations and their attendants. This means you need a car that has great fuel efficiency in order to get there with as few stops as possible. Time to borrow your zombie neighbours Peugeot 208 1.6 BlueHDi Active… do so before he comes home and eats you. It should get you most of the way to the safe zone on a single tank thanks to 45-litre tank capacity. It has a combined fuel economy of 94.2 mpg so it is so importantly frugal. This car is all about travelling far to escape the horde and make it to safety.
Now with Halloween approaching, we must all prepare for the inevitable rise of the dead. It is time to consider getting a used car on finance so that you are ready to go when they come. It can be any of the vehicles above, whether you wish to run them down or run away. All the above cars are available on finance right now. Time to get one before the dead rise.
