Have you thought about getting a car recently? Have you thought about what you need a car for?
As a first car, you would want something that’s not very expensive and is good on gas. Believe it or not, there are many cars that fit into this category.
A few examples of this are the Toyota Camry and Toyota Corolla. The older models, such as those from 1993-1996, are all 4-cylinder cars, which get at least 26 miles per gallon in the city.
What also makes these cars desirable are their sleek design and looks. This is what every car owner wants.
A few other good cars to get are the Volkswagen Jetta, Golf, Gti, and the Cabrio. These cars are all German made and compare similarly to Toyotas in fuel-efficiency.
All of these cars are based off of the Golf. They all have the same internal parts, but are different in body style.
The Jetta comes in two styles: a two-door coupe, and a four-door sedan.
The Golf is the original base car and is also a hatchback. They only come in four-door body styles.
The Gti is the sport version of the Golf and instead of a 1.6-liter engine it comes with a 2.0-liter engine with a turbocharger. They also only have two doors, which gives them that sporty look.
The Cabrio is a modified version of the Golf, too. The Cabrio comes as a convertible with two doors.
All of these cars can be bought for a good price if they are before the year 2000. You can find these car models in the Auto Trader paper and at some dealerships.
So why would you go and get a v8 “gas guzzler” and waste money? Be smart and get one of these suggested cars!
