There are so many options when it comes to selecting the perfect vehicle, that sometimes it can be overwhelming to decide. It helps if you ask yourself some questions about what you need in a car so that you can narrow down your options for an easier choice! We here at Irvine Auto Center would love to give you some tips so that you can choose you can see the New Year in with a new car!


First: Carefully consider what you want in a new vehicle

You can narrow down your choices initially by asking yourself some questions to identify the right vehicle for your needs. Firstly, ask yourself what type of vehicle you prefer and whether that’s an SUV, a sports car or a luxurious sedan. That way you’re not going to waste your time and energy checking out cars you’re not really that interested in. Choose a specific category of car for your search and you’ll be closer to seeing the New Year with the perfect car for you.


Second: What do you need in terms of space, performance, and economy?

Think about the journeys you have to take regularly for work or leisure and how much your vehicle will cost to keep on the road. You don’t want a high-performance gas-guzzler if you only usually take small trips or stick within urban areas. You need to use your car for the purpose if was designed for. If you choose a sports car, it will need to be opened up on occasion and really driven to the max but if you’re constantly in a lower gear, you won’t get any benefits from the car’s performance.


Third: Who is all going to be using this new vehicle?

If you have a growing family, you’ll obviously want to choose between a utility vehicle, station wagon or sedan model. If you have a penchant for family road trips, an SUV is the perfect choice. There’s always plenty of storage and space inside SUVs and are packed with features perfect for family travelling. If it’s just you, maybe a two seater would be a viable option, or a five-seater to be able to take your friends on your adventures. Either way, examining your previous driving history to determine the needs of your new vehicle is a great way to make the right decision.
