The 70 best drivetunes for your ride

5 min reading time
Turn it up! These playlists with the best driving songs will make your next drive a great one, whether you’re just going home after work or heading out for a road trip.

28 May 2019

Music is to driving what butter is to toast – they just belong together. Whether you’re on a country road, zooming along on the race track or just driving home from work: it's almost impossible to imagine those drives without the right car music. Well, you can, but they would be flat, dry and boring – also like unbuttered toast.

The new BMW 1 Series navigates you through life on the road, but the right soundtrack makes every drive fun. You’d as soon start the engine without some proper cruising songs as you would without a steering wheel.

So we’ve compiled not one but seven individual playlists of the best car music so you’ll be equipped with the right drivetunes for every possible situation, from driving at night to a road trip. Turn it up, roll down the window and hit it!

The driver may be in charge of the music. But with this mixtape for your road trip, packed with infectious high spirits for the ride, you’ll hear zero complaints from the passenger seat – whether you go on a USA road trip, a European road trip or somewhere else entirely.
