Here are the top 10 car models most likely to run for a long, long time

Volvo highest mileageWikimedia CommonsWhile the Volvo P1800 did not make the list, this particular one is the current world record mileage holder at more than 3 million miles.

Two hundred grand is a major milestone for a car.

It’s a long way — the equivalent of driving around the earth eight times — and not many cars make it.

The ones that do, according to automotive research website, are mostly trucks and SUVs.

The site took a sample of 12 million cars and found which models were most likely to make it to 200,000 on the odometer.

According to the data, trucks last on average 33% more miles, while SUVs manage 15% more.

Trucks and SUVs are built to be rugged and simple, for the most part. That’s why they hold up for so long.

There was only one car to crack the top 10: the Toyota Avalon.
