How To Choose A Second-Hand Car That Reflects Your Lifestyle

Many things are considered when it comes to purchasing a vehicle, namely budget, mileage, style, reliability, comfort, and safety. Additionally, different vehicle types are suited to different lifestyles. We'll be going over a few different lifestyles and which vehicles suit each.

Second-Hand Cars For Adventurers

Are you the type that’s always out on an adventure? The main second-hand car to consider is a sport utility vehicle (SUV). SUVs have excellent cargo and cabin space, four to eight seats, and a rear door that lifts up, as well as being equipped with four-wheel drive. Off-road, they really perform, which means the outdoors are your oyster!

City Folk Driving

If you reside in a city with bustling traffic, a hatchback or sedan could be for you. Hatchbacks usually seat five and are perfect for nipping through traffic. Sedans are an option for those who need a little more cargo space as they have a detached trunk. If clutch control in traffic isn’t your strong suit, look into automatic second-hand cars for those gridlocked days in Jozi central.

On-The-Roaders

Those that work on the road for long periods of time could go for sedans, in the case of drivers who need space for passengers; or trucks for those that carry more cargo. Whichever second-hand car you choose, make sure to test-drive for comfortability. 

Luxurious And Driver-Focused

If you like comfort, style, and power, a convertible or coupe could be the second-hand car for you. Both vehicles seat two, the difference being a coupes’ roof is fixed, while a convertibles’ is retractable.

Family-Orientated Used Vehicles

For smaller and regular-sized families a sedan or station wagon (with five seats and lots of cargo space) could be the car for you. For larger families, a minivan would be better suited as they seat six to eight with plenty of cargo space.

To choose a second-hand car that reflects your lifestyle: consider your size requirements, where you live, and where you’ll be driving. If you need guidance in your decision or are ready to commit, contact Auto Pedigree today or find a car dealer near you.
