The road from Aqtaw to Almaty

Hi there! We planning to drive from Aqtaw to Almaty in a few weeks. Is it possible to take the smaller roads or should we take the mainroad (and extremely long detour) going through Kulsary, Kandyagash and Shalkar? Note: We don't have a 4 wheel drive car. Thanks for any thoughts and recommendations!!!
