Petrol or Diesel Preferences

For a first-time car buyer this one can be a googly. A diesel car will cost Rs.1 to Rs.1.5 lakh more than a petrol one.

Petrol is more expensive than diesel. But a petrol engine is cleaner powerful and fuel efficient. It does not require regular usage and are low maintenance as well.

Trunk Size

A defining characteristic of the sedan is the trunk. When searching for the car to buy pay close attention to the trunk size. You want a size where you can easily fit your grocery shopping holiday luggage and any sports goods without a glitch.



Music System

Driving a sedan includes a considerable time stuck in city traffic or cruising through highways. At such times it's music that is the best companion. While a sedan comes fitted with the standard music system you can always enquire about the brand and have an audio quality test. If you are not impressed you can get it changed.



You should buy the car you need and not want. A sedan is a family car. A good rule to remember is that the cost of the car shouldn't exceed half of your annual income. There are many sedan variants with different features and offerings. Choose the one which best suits your needs.


Research Online

While car dealers and advertisements sell you their sedans using persuasive marketing techniques you do not get the whole picture. Go online and visit third-party websites which are neutral in their reviews of sedans. The websites will give you a fair idea of the car to opt for.
