I plan to buy a car (new or used) in the next few months, but with so many brands and models I dont know which one to buy.
Basically, what I want / need are:
- Not lousy in terms of its performance
- Interior is modern and full of tech – I love tech and gadgets
- Looks good
- Ideal for family of 3-4
- Good boot space
- Low running cost/service/fuel economy, etc.
- Great record of reliability/durability
- Budget 40k max.
My partner and I have a sight on Mazda 6 wagon.
I like the look of sedan better, but wagon looks like has more space. Is that correct?
Initially, I am looking at mazda 6 from few years ago e.g. 2013 or 2014 so that I dont get hit much by depreciation.. but I read that the current model 2015 has much better interior and infotainment than the previous model.. so that kind of swing me to get at least 2015 model for mazda 6.. (but I will get stung by depreciation more..)
What are the other alternatives for me?
I don't mind SUV either, e.g CX-5 or Subaru Outback but it seems that SUV boot space does not actually look spacious compare to wagon (?), the same as sedan's boot space?
I never had SUV before so I dont mind trying to drive 'higher' on the road.
Also, which month(s) is best to buy a (new) car? e.g. End of March (for Jap cars since Jap financial year ends) vs end of June vs end of year..
Things like 3-year-warranty or capped servicing, are they dealer-specific deals or all dealers will have the same thing based on the model purchased?
Advice/suggestions will be appreciated much. Thank you
