Got A Shortlist? How To Determine Which Vehicle Makes The Cut
Have you shopped around and got a few models in mind? Check out our guide to answering the age-old question, “which car should I buy?”
Making a final decision on which car you want can get really hard.
With so many different makes and models out there, deciding on just one can get a little overwhelming.
From sedans to SUV’s and everything in between, deciding on just one isn't easy.
That’s why we’ve put together a new car buying checklist to help you shorten your short list down to that perfect car.
Figure out your needs
Firstly, determine what your needs are now and also what they’re going to be for the next few years. Sure, a convertible sounds nice but if you’re planning on starting a family soon or moving somewhere cold it’s probably not very realistic.
Some factors to consider when looking at your needs are:
Who’s dependant on you and who will you be driving around.
If you drive to work will there be a lot of stopping and starting? Will it be in the city and require some tight parking?
Do you enjoy road trips? Will you need a lot of boot space to carry all of your gear?
How much are you willing to spend? Does it fit your budget?
Consider your lifestyle
What’s important to you?
Consider what’s important to you. This checklist is about you after all.
Have a think about what’s going to satisfy your needs within your budget.
Some factors to consider when thinking about what's important to you include:
Do you want something that’s going to turn heads when you drive down the street?
What colour floats your boat?
This one should be an essential.
If you love gadgets then go for something with all the latest tech.
If you’re a fan of maximising your fuel and saving your dollars then consider a car with good fuel economy
There’s nothing wrong with wanting something spacious that’s comfortable to drive.
