New Cars: Our advice to help you buy your new car

When you decide that you want a new car, the most difficult thing is to decide which one. There variety is great so you have to take a few things into consideration to narrow down the selection.

Fuel type

The big battle here is between diesel or petrol fuel but new contenders are coming out recently such as electric and hybrid cars.
Petrol cars are faster and drive smoothly.
Diesel cars are more cost effective in fuel consumption. They are also said to be more environment friendly than petrol cars.
Electric cars — You pay 2-3 p per mile so they will definitely save you money. Their only downside is that you can only go for 100 miles with one recharge and if there is no fast charging point near you, you'll have to leave it for at least 4 hours to fully recharge. So they are only good for city cruising.
Hybrid cars — if you can't make up your mind between a fuel and an electric car — this is the ultimate choice — combination between the two.

Engine size

The engine is the driving force of the car so depending on its size is also its fuel consumption. Smaller cars have smaller engines and lower MPG. Bigger engines suggest more spacious cars good for families.

Transmission

The choice is between automatic and manual transmission. Many of the latest models offer a combination of the two. It's a well renowned fact that automatic driven cars have higher MPG so if you want less fuel consumption — opt for a manual one.

Purpose of the car

Another good thing to consider is what the main purpose of your car will be. Do you want a fast car or a more spacious family car? Or a 4x4 car? Would you use it only for short distances or long ones?

Extras

All car models have more and less expensive versions depending on the extras included in them. This is a good idea as you don't need to pay for features that you will never use — parking sensors, ABS, traction control, alloy wheels and so on.
Once you are clear on all the points listed above, you will know what exactly you are looking for.
