Cars can be used to say and mean a great deal. For some people, a car is simply a means of getting from A to B, but for others, it’s a symbol of their status in society, of their tastes, and even their ethics. This is why it can sometimes be tricky identifying the car that truly suits you.
Choosing a car
Fortunately, or maybe not, you have a wide range of cars from which to choose. The first consideration when finding a car that suits you is to think carefully about your particular lifestyle. Do you live in the country or enjoy camping or hiking vacations? If so, a small city-style car will most definitely not suit your needs, and it won’t be up to the job of cross-country driving. If, however, you live in a city where space is at a premium, a small car fits the bill exactly, being usually economical to run and, most importantly, easy to park.
Let us take a look at some of these lifestyle-type cars, starting with the Chrysler Pacifica. This is exactly the type of car that you should choose if you have a family but still want to look good out on the road. Marketed almost as serving the same purpose as a minivan, the implication is that there is plenty of space inside for you and your family, but the outside is far more attractive than your average minivan. The Chrysler Pacifica can seat up to eight people, so it is ideal for big families, especially as it has really gone to town on the standard safety features, as well as having some innovative features, such as a 360-degree surround camera, forward collision warning, and parallel and perpendicular park assist. It is also packed with entertainment features – great for keeping the kids quiet on long journeys! You can choose to have 10.1-inch touchscreens mounted on the rear of the front seats and connected to a Blu-Ray DVD system. Also available on these are a number of apps suitable for all ages. The Pacifica is due to launch in 2017.
Next up is the Jeep Renegade, the car to have for those out-of-town trips. The Renegade comes in four different models, each with features specific to the individual cars. All Renegades are four-door SUVs, and they feature award-winning engines. As this is an off-the-road vehicle, you need some mighty power under the hood, and the Renegade does not disappoint, having a 2.4-liter Tigershark I4 engine, front-wheel drive, and nine-speed transmission. The exterior of the Renegade Sport features deep-tinted glass windows/windshield, an open air dual panel sunroof, and the standard seven-frame grille. In terms of the interior, the Sport can seat up to five people comfortably, and has smooth side panels for a touch of luxury. Its entertainment system features a 5-inch touchscreen, USB media hub, integrated Bluetooth, and four speakers. It also has up to 70 standard safety features, so you can feel safe when you drive. You can take the Jeep Renegade for a test drive today to see if it is the car for you.
If you would like something a little sleeker for your city life, then a Dodge may suit you. A classic American car, the Dodge comes in both manual and automatic transmissions, and coupe and sedan styles. Standard features include 3-mode electronic stability control, auto adjust and auto dim in the reverse exterior mirrors, and bi-function HID projector head lamps. You can upgrade the standard model with heated second-row seats, Goodyear tires, high-speed engine controller, and technology such as SiriusXM Traffic.
However, if you want something that is built strictly for men, then you should be considering the Ram truck. A sleek beast, the Ram can seat up to six people on the bench-style seats, and comes with aluminum chrome-clad wheels, a Class IV receiver hitch, a bench seat upholstered in premium cloth, remote keyless entry and garage door transmitter, as well as auto dim exterior mirrors, the Big Horn badge, and regional package. Additional options include bucket seats, folding flat load floor storage, integrated voice command with Bluetooth, GPS antenna input, and a media hub.
The key to choosing a car that is suited exactly to your needs is to first consider how it will fit in with your lifestyle, and secondly, to consider what standard and optional features fit with your dream. There is sure to be a car out there that does both.
