What type of car will best suit your driving style?
December 08, 2016 at 3:08 PM
It's important to buy a car that suits your driving style. Some people own small cars because it’s all they can afford. They often get frustrated because they get caught on the motorway behind someone in a large, powerful car driving at 50 miles an hour.
Their thoughts are always 'why does someone own such a car if they want to crawl...give me a car like that and I'll show them how to drive!'
Cars for Everyday Use
Estates, coupes, saloons, SUVs - how on earth do you choose a car that suits your needs? Certainly, if you have kids or are planning on having kids, a 4-door car - a saloon - will be a wise choice. If you've got parents- and parents-in-laws plus dogs living with you, a people carrier like the Ford Galaxy might be a good choice because then there is room for everyone to be transported in comfort.
Wind-in-the-Hair Cars for Carefree Lifestyles
We have so many choices in cars today, we can scarcely keep up with the makes and models. There is a car, 4x4 or van to suit every need, every lifestyle and every budget. For many people a car isn't just a method of getting from one place to the next, it represents who they are. Some people are wind-in-the-hair car enthusiasts and they choose a sports car.
But even if you ask people to name their favourite sports cars, you'll get several different answers. They all look wonderful and they're all fun to drive, whether you go for one of the cheaper models or you go for some exotic looking one such as the Peugeot 207 CC. With the mere touch of a button, the top retracts and the car becomes a sporty, fun machine.
The Adventurer's 4x4s
There are some countries with landscapes that just lend themselves to adventure, and they lure adventurers to drive their 4x4s into these wilderness areas for some magical outdoor experiences. Sand dunes, wetlands, forests and valleys don't deter the 4x4 owner and most of these vehicles are as good off the beaten track as they are on city roads. The 4x4 driver approaches these different roads with caution each time, being fully aware that if they aren't aware of the challenges the roads present, there will be trouble.
Fuel Efficiency Counts the Most
When you consider your driving style, there are other considerations, and the type of driving you do will determine whether a hybrid or a diesel will suit you. Certainly, diesel drivers will detect benefits when driving out on the highway.
Do the research, because, in tough economic times, speed is being exchanged for economical cars to run - these are the greatest of all cars in the 21st century.
