When looking for a new car, it can be a confusing feat to navigate the saturated market and find the right one that fits all of your criteria. With differing models each featuring their own perks and downfalls, even deciding between a sports model or an everyday luxury vehicle can pose its problems. To help you out, we are going to look at whether you should invest in a sporty or stylish model for your next car purchase.
When it comes to choosing a car, it’s important to consider what you will be using it for in day to day life. If you are looking for a practical car for the family that is still stylish and affordable, then you could benefit from a Ford Focus or a Volkswagen Golf. Both models are the perfect combination of affordability, practicality, style and comfort for a great all-round everyday car.
However, if you like to spend time down on the track you may be looking for a sports car that can handle city streets just as well as the starting line. If this is the case then you’re certainly in luck with the current sports market. In fact, most models nowadays tend to focus on the sportier side of things, so there’s plenty to choose from that make any journey a fun one. With iconic cars such as the Audi R8 and the Honda NSX, there is something for everyone regardless of your price range.
The fuel efficiency of any model is crucial when looking to buy a car, as we all know petrol and diesel can be rather expensive. If you are leaning more towards the sporty option for your new car, then there are a number of fuel-efficient options on the current market. An example of this is Seat Leon Cupra that clocks in at 42.2 miles per gallon, and the BMW 2 series that clocks in anywhere between 37-61 miles to the gallon. These are perfect examples of cars that are slightly on the sportier side but are still cost-effective and practical for day to day life making it perfect for those wanting something sporty without committing to an expensive sports car.
It is also important to consider the price point when you are looking to choose between a sporty or stylish car as this can differ depending on the model and the brand. If you are looking for a car hat just oozes style and is sure to turn heads, the BMW i8 Coupe is the car for you but starting at £112,735, this car is one of the more pricer options available to you. However, rest assured that you really do get what you pay for; with the ultimate combination of style and innovative technology, this car really is worth every penny.
Alternatively, there are much cheaper options for you to choose from when looking for a sporty car such as a BMW M2 ( £49,805) or an Audi TT RS ( £52,480) that give you all the speed of a sports car with the comfort and practicality of a vehicle that can be used for long distance travel. This is something that is crucial when making the decision on your car as this will help to find the right car for both you and your budget.
The driveability of any car should always be a deciding factor regardless of whether you choose a sporty or stylish model. If you sit behind that wheel and don’t feel comfortable with the drive, the look or capabilities of the car won’t matter. To be sure, all you have to do is take the car out for a test drive before you buy. Most dealers will let you try before you buy and any dealer, manufacturer or seller that doesn’t allow you to do this may not be worthy of trusting. Take the car for a spin, and then you’ll truly know whether a sporty or stylish model is right for you.
With plenty of cars on the market, you really are spoilt for choice when choosing the one for you and it could not be more of a customisable experience. Which will you choose?
