When buying a new car, many motorists will only think about how stylish it looks from the outside or what state-of-the-art technology it has inside. One of the most overlooked aspects when it comes to buying a new car is how it will cope with the road.
You must always consider the type of terrain that you will be covering most often - in the UK we have many different types of roads and the unpredictable weather to consider. Additionally, many roads are poorly maintained and contain potholes. Therefore, you should look for sturdy automobiles that won’t let you down in poor conditions. Here are a few of the best cars for UK roads currently on the market:
This SUV is surging in popularity and it is easy to see why. One of the key selling points is the fact that it is one of the best value automobiles that money can buy right now, but it is also one of the most versatile cars available. The four-wheel-drive option ensures that it can master wintery conditions, slippery roads and potholes with ease. On top of all this, the Duster is comfortable and spacious inside and easy to drive.
BMW 3 Series Saloon
BMW is a sought after badge as the manufacturer is synonymous with class and sophistication. The 3 Series is a real head turner and is everything that you would expect in a BMW, but it is also one of the best cars to drive on UK roads. This is because the xDrive four-wheel-drive system offers superb grip and enables the motorists to easily handle motorways, winding country lanes and city streets. It also is very capable in slippery conditions. The BMW 3 Series can be expensive, but by looking for a second-hand model at places like PG Motors it can be much more affordable.
The Suzuki Swift is one of the only supermini’s currently available which has four-wheel-drive and this makes it a great option for those that live in the city. It is also very cheap to run for a four-wheel-drive as it can return up to 62.8mpg and emits just 101g/km of CO2. The Suzuki Swift is relatively affordable, spacious inside and good fun to drive.
These are three of the best cars to cope with the UK roads and the tough conditions that motorists can face in the winter months.
