The car models you choose to buy define who you are to some extent because they are chosen specifically to meet your individual needs. For some people fuel efficiency is the most important factor and for others power takes precedence. Some people would be interested in both. High safety features are also essential but mostly for the family car. Looking for the right car can be very daunting, as there are endless options out there. To find a new car to suit your needs it’s important to know what models are best for certain purposes. We give you a run-down of some of the best.
Day to day cars – take you to work and back home (five days out of seven)
What most people want for an everyday car model is something that is light on petrol, dependable and has a radio. Fiat has two exemplary examples in this class. The Palio is an attractive car in the same style as the French classics like Renault. It is projected that the fifth series will be launched in 2010 under a different name. The Palio has an average safety rating and enough space for day to day activities. The Fiat Panda is a similar car in a slightly boxier style.
Other car models you can consider in this range are the VW City Golf and Polo, Ford Fiesta and Mazda 2. The Polo is a solid and attractive car that comes at a nice price, and the City Golf is the cheapest in this range.
Weekend cars – the latest sports models are best left for weekend cruises because they are heavy on fuel and you’ll want to keep them looking great.
If you like your toys fast and attractive and you can afford a second car; you could opt for the weekend sports car. The BMW M6 is both a top of the range sports car and an opulent coupe. The Formula-one level speed and acceleration will set your pulse racing. If you’re looking for a classy and sporty coupe/convertible, look no further than the Mercedes CLK and the Maserati, which is the model for serious weekenders who like to play hard.
Off road cars – for those who love to kick up dust and go camping
The Toyoto Fortuner is an elegant Sport Recreation Vehicle for both townies and country folk. Standard features include leather seats, power windows and a CD player. The Toureg is the off-road vehicle for Volks Wagen lovers. It is less obviously a four-wheel drive than the Fortuner is. The new Toureg boasts some revised technology that shortens braking distance on loose surfaces. Other excellent options for classy adventures are the BMW X6 and Porsche Cayenne.
All rounder – a car for all occasions, for the one-car household
The VW Tiguan is a sports utility vehicle meets family car and is perfect for a family with a more adventurous spirit. The Tiguan is certainly the best of both with advanced German engineering incorporating both on-road and off-road features. All engine options for this model come in four-wheel drive and the average ground clearance is a good 200 mm. The BMW X3 is another great all rounder, being perfect for off-road adventures or family holidays. This car model’s versatility makes it a good long term investment.
