Longest drive I did in one stretch was Goa to Chennai in 2014. Distance was almost 1000KM and with 8AM start, it took around 14 hours to complete the journey with regular food and bio breaks in between.

Apart from this, I do regular drives to my hometown, which is at a distance of around 800KM.

My longest drive was from Capetown to Johannesburg in South Africa.
I started at around 7am and it took me approx. 15 hours including 4 breaks for the 1400 kms. That was back in 2013.
I was driving a VW Polo sedan (Vento in India), Petrol, AT, 90kW. A memorable journey in a comfortable car.

My longest drive so far has been San Francisco to Washington DC. It was approx 3000 miles or nearly 5000 Kms. It took 5 days with nightly stops at hotels along the way. The vehicle was a Toyota Prius.

In India my longest drive was Delhi to Goa way back in 1993 on a Bajaj Stride sccooter. That took 7 days with nightly stops as well!

Kolhapur to Mysore, around 700Km, roughly 10hours in a Ford Figo 1.4 TDCi with 4 adults and 2 kids
Mysore was a stop over and then we drove to Ooti the next day.
Although longest would be Mysore -> Bangalore -> Kolhapur on our way back as we wanted to avoid those bumps on the interior roads, took almost 12 hours.

My longest drive in a single stretch would be Bhilai to Bangalore, the one I did in the Diwali week of 2015. Started from Bhilai at about 5am in the morning and reached Bangalore at about 11pm. Covering roughly 1400kms in about 18hrs. The roads in the entire stretch are fantastic. This was in Grand i10 petrol.

The answer is NO. :-) my mistake. Actually that Polo was 77kW. This was back in early 2013 and i got confused with a jetta that i also had breifly.

Back to the topic, since some people have also used breaks in calculating the drive distance, my longest drive then is the same trip as above but including the overnight stays. I clocked approx 4000kms driving from Johannesburg through Port Elizabeth, The Garden Route (Plattenberg Bay, Knysna, George), Capetown and back to Johannesburg.
