Top 5 Cars for First Time Buyers Buying a car for the first time can be a daunting task. With so many options, models, packages, colours, and manufacturers to choose from, this decision is not a simple one. For some reason, however, some people put less thought in to this decision than in to the decision of whether they want fries with their burger. If you are a diligent consumer, though, you will surely weigh your top few options against each other. There are 3 important criteria for first time buyers – safety, price, and durability. First time buyers are usually young drivers and, accordingly, should buy cars with impeccable safety ratings. In no particular order, Here are the top 5 cars for first time buyers: Hyundai Accent Simply put, this car offers more bang for the buck than any other car in its class. Despite its diminutive sizing, the car rides like a larger car and is great over bumps. And despite its low price, the interior is comfortable and great aesthetically. Best in class fuel economy and a sleek exterior make this an excellent car for those looking for an excellent ride with excellent value. Hyundai Elantra If you are looking for something a little larger and more luxurious than the Accent, the Elantra is your best bet. Best in class fuel economy means that, despite the higher price point, you will be saving money down the road. The Elantra is an elegant and sleek 4 door sedan and has impressive leg room. The interior is a step up from the Accent and is truly impressive. Honda Civic Sedan The Civic Sedan is larger than other cars in its class and is significantly more practical than the Accent when it comes to passenger space. This car is also extremely quiet on the road. The interior, however, feels less polished and elegant than the Accent’s, as its plastic paneling is much harder. The car drives well, but the interior leaves something to be desired. Chevrolet Sonic Sedan If you are a stickler for interiors, this car is for you. Its extremely comfortable and attractive interior includes triple cup holders, multiple glove compartments, storage areas, and adequate passenger room. The drive, however, is quite rough compared to other cars in its class and pales in comparison to the Accent. Nissan Versa The complete opposite of the Sonic, the Versa is all about the ride. This car rides better than anything in its class and has amazing interior space to boot. The interior however, is desperately lacking any sense of comfort or style. Cheap carpets and hard plastics will repel those looking for a great interior; if you don’t care about interiors, however, the Versa is a great ride. Buying a first car can be an extremely overwhelming exercise. The best approach is to rank your criteria and pick a car that suits your needs. Plus, remember that the addition of certain packages can drastically alter the feel and performance of a car. Choosing a car is a commitment that cannot easily be reversed – do the research and truly weigh your options before pulling the trigger.
