We all have that one car that would make our dreams come true. It might be a huge “mom car” or something sleek, powerful and sporty. Whatever it is for you, it’s important to think practically before you buy it.
Different cars function differently and are suited to different types of people and lifestyles. There’s no use buying a stylish two-door coupe when you need to be driving three kids around town from Monday to Friday. Similarly, a big SUV might be a waste of money and space for a single man in a small town. Here are some popular car body types and the lifestyles they best fit.
If you’re a family man, a truck might not be for you. However, they’re a great option for people who work with their hands and need to haul materials and even machinery around town. Trucks are great for outdoor adventures like camping or bringing your dogs down to the beach, and even helping your pals move house.
If you live in the Dallas area, you can look for an Arlington RAM or Dodge truck second-hand from a reputable dealer that will do the trick.
SUVs and Minivans
If you’re a parent or hoping to start a family in the near future, keep in mind that SUVs and minivans are some of the best cars for families. These cars are far more spacious, and usually have a lot of power and trunk space too.
These are your easiest bet for moving kids, dogs, sports gear, bake sale cupcakes, and everything in between – in the most comfortable way possible.
For a single, sporty type of person, a coupe is an awesome option. They’re obviously not the most practical vehicle on the market, but they’re compact and they can be flashy if you want them to be, and great for a little fun on the road.
As with any car, make sure that you take it for a test drive before you commit.
Any city-dwelling bachelor or couple will know that a hatchback is a golden vehicle. They’re just big enough to be comfortable, offer enough cargo room, are nicely affordable, and way more fuel-efficient than pretty much any of their larger counterparts.
If you’re zipping around town to work and back every day, visiting friends, and exploring the city for new dinner date options, it doesn’t get much better than a hatch.
Believe it or not, a sedan is another great option for a family vehicle (or at least a better bet than a coupe). A spacious, four-door car that’s fuel-efficient and comfortable makes it a versatile option for new families, young couples, single people, or just about anyone else.
A sedan is a good choice for almost anyone looking – unless you have very specific needs like transporting large items or five children all at once.
Whatever your transport needs might be, there’s a car out there that will suit you and your lifestyle. Make sure to consider your options carefully, and always take your top choice out for a spin before you buy it.
