We all have standards we have to live by when it comes to our time and money. And because of that, we need to be very careful of the decisions we make regarding them…namely whether we have the money to spend on that one thing we really want, or if we actually have the time to do something we’ve been looking forward to for a long time.
So whether you’re diving into the used car market, or you’ve got enough in the bank to splash out on a new model, let’s look at the most common needs people in our generation have, and the cars best suited to fit them.
You’d definitely look sleek in one of these! Although, how practical would they really be? (Image)
For the Family
Family cars are all the rage on the market. Cars seem to be getting bigger and bigger each year, and because of this it feels like you could fit an entire school of children in the back! However, not all of these vehicles are best suited for the family needs, and thus you’re going to have to be careful when you’re buying. After all, you’re often going to need to fit teens in their as well, and they need plenty of legroom to grow out of.
You could go very easily with a Ford here, as they have big back seats and boot sizes, and with a long enough reputation for family welfare that you can trust. Even insuring them is going to be easier than for any other car out there; just check out GoCompare for more details on that.
When on a Budget
First of all, everyone has a budget when it comes to buying a car. However, when it feels like you’ve only got £3 in savings, and when you broke open the piggy bank there was only a couple of pennies inside, you’re going to need something a lot stricter to run by. Thankfully, there’s still a lot of cars out there that can fit your needs here.
You can choose to go second hand, which is often the smartest move for your time and money when in this kind of situation. But there are still cars that are brand new and under £10,000 out there, so don’t be afraid to look into these options either.
If You’re a New Driver
Whilst it would seem teenagers are choosing not to drive more and more in the modern era, people are still passing their tests every single day of the week. And that means there’s new drivers out there eager to hop into their very own vehicle. A new Kia would be good here, as well as a Peugeot. These cars are well known to have lower insurance rates and better handling, perfect for a newbie.
The best cars for your needs are always out there, so don’t worry about not being able to grab the model you want. Even just compromising will work out very well!
