Half the fun of hitting the open road is putting together the perfect road trip playlist.

Whether you stream it, have CD stacker or if your car still has a tape deck (kudos to you), you can’t drive in complete silence.  Well, you can, but the very thought of it is giving us a flat battery.

So let’s up the ante, eh?

What could possibly be better than to absolutely crank your tunes than in the ultimate road trip playlist machine – otherwise known as a brand-new Hyundai Santa Fe Elite SUV.

As part of 96FM’s 20K To Stay In WA, not only is someone is going to win a massive $20,000, they’ll also score a Hyundai Santa Fe Elite for 6 months, so you hit the road anywhere around WA… especially now that restrictions are being lifted for the South West region on Monday!



And may we suggest the following 96FM Music Director-approved bangers for when you do, indeed, hit the open road…
