The dream of a simple car is almost everyone’s dream. Everyone wants them to talk to the air while filling the road in their dream car. But before buying your first dream car there is a need to take some special precautions. So that you can choose the best ride according to your need and budget. Normally, when buying a new car, the first question that arises in the mind of every Indian customer is about the budget and mileage. There are some such points on which you can choose the right car after considering it, so let’s know about those 5 special things –
1) – Budget decision:
The most important decision in the purchase of any vehicle is the budget. Prove to yourself what your budget is and how much money you can spend. How much down payment you can pay to finance the vehicle and how much monthly installment will not be a burden on your pocket. The cheapest car in the Indian market is Maruti Alto, which has an initial price of Rs 2.99 lakh, apart from this other models are more expensive. So first of all, decide your budget.
2) – Understand your need:
From the entry-level hatchback car in the market to expensive sedans, SUVs and MPVs, there are expensive and affordable cars in every segment. After deciding the budget, choose the segment according to your need. If you have a family of 4 to 5 people in your family and want to buy a car with better mileage in a lower budget, then you can opt for cars like hatchbacks like Maruti Alto to Swift or Tata Tiago. Apart from this, if you have a large family and you want more space, then you can choose SUV or MPV cars like Maruti Brezza, Hyundai Creta, Maruti Ertiga, Toyota Innova etc.
Overall, finalize the car according to your needs. Many premium features such as sunroof, cruise control, more airbags are available in expensive cars. At the same time, according to the government-directed standards, some safety features have been kept as standard in all vehicles, such as features such as speed alert system, dual airbags, anti-lock braking system (ABS), electronic brake force distribution (EBD) and rear parking sensors. See you in every car.
3) – Do complete research:
A car is not only a tool but it also proves to be a better ally in your life. So before choosing any car, do research or research on it. By research here, we mean that select some models according to segment and need and get maximum information about them. For this, you can talk to the dealership, online or even to your well-wishers. Do not just go to the look or design of the car, also take full care of other expenses related to it like maintenance, mileage and accessories etc.
4) – Petrol or Diesel:
This is a question that almost every car buyer grapples with. It is seen many times that people are not able to decide whether to buy a petrol car or a diesel car. The answer is also with you, just a little calculation is needed. Let us understand it this way, today the price of petrol per liter in Delhi is Rs 90.40 and the price of diesel is Rs 80.73. That is, there is a difference of just Rs 10 in both the fuels. There was a time when there was a difference of 25 to 30 rupees between these two. That time was different, but today things have changed.
In general, there is a significant difference in the price of petrol and diesel cars, and people choose diesel cars because of the mileage. But for this, they also pay extra huge amount while buying a car. For example, the entry-level Magna petrol variant of the Hyundai i20 is priced at Rs 6.85 lakh while the diesel model of the same Magna is priced at Rs 8.19 lakh. Its petrol model gives a mileage of 20.35 kmpl and diesel model up to 25.2 kmpl.
There is a clear difference of about 1.34 lakh rupees in the price of these two cars, while the features and other technology are exactly the same except the engine. Now if you feel that you can drive your diesel car so much that the extra amount paid for it can be recovered only due to mileage, then you can choose diesel. Generally, diesel cars are recommended only to those who make commercial use of them, as they have to travel more every day. If you also travel more than 100 km per day then you can choose the diesel model. Keep in mind that diesel cars also cost more for maintenance.
5) – Take a test drive:
After implementing all the points mentioned above, your next step will be to test a few selected cars. Yes, include two or more cars in your buying list and test drive all the cars in turn. During the test drive, try to drive the car on all types of road conditions, such as on the bad roads from the city plane to the out skirt. For this, you can also drive the car in a field. While driving, take full care of the handling, suspension, steering command, braking control and mileage of the car. Because what companies claim, sometimes the results in the real world are different from what they claim. So take a test drive and finalize your first dream car.
