Whether you’ve just moved and you’re looking for a city car to get you to the office or your family’s grown and you’re after something that will safely get everyone from A to B, there’s a lot to consider when choosing a car. And with so many models available and features to look out for, it can be bewildering, especially if you haven’t tried buying a new motor for a while.

To help you make your next purchase, here are some key considerations. 

Your budget




Everything is expensive right now. The headlines about the cost of living are hard to escape and it seems everything is going up in price. So, it stands to reason that you have a set budget in mind when you’re buying a new car. While it can be easy to be swayed by a pricier model, keep your limit in mind and try not to exceed it.

If you can’t buy a motor outright, however, there are options. One way is to lease a car. Take the time to work out if this will suit you and research the type of car you’d like to lease. It could be the ideal alternative.

Quality

When searching for a new car, quality should also be a top priority. Research models and makes that are known for their reliability and durability. While some cars can turn your head, it can be an expensive problem if you buy a motor that’s known for its faulty electrics, for example.  

Car size

Do you need a big boot? How many doors do you want? Are you after a small runaround or a robust crossover that will get you safely along country roads? 

Think carefully about the size of your car. Also think about how comfortable you are driving a larger or smaller car. Some motorists dislike larger vehicles, others love to be high up. 

Your needs

Why do you need a new car? Think about what you want to get from your new motor. Is it going to be a practical choice that will stand the test of time? If you need something that will last you for a few years, you’ll need to match your lifestyle to the model you opt for. 

Sustainability 

If you’re thinking long-term, you might want to think about where we’ll be in a few years. The government is banning the sale of diesel and petrol cars in 2030, so switching to electric now could be beneficial, especially if you want to get used to life in an EV. 

There’s a lot to think about when buying a new car. Don’t rush into anything and weigh up your options. This is a big-ticket item, so working out what works for you is the best way to approach this purchase.
