Meeting Your Needs & Theirs It can be a difficult transition as your teenager moves from the ranks of devoted passenger to commander of the wheel. As a family-oriented business, we understand your main concerns are dependability, long-term ownership costs, high safety ratings, and accident avoidance technologies. While a luxury vehicle may not be at the top of your list for your teen’s first car, a pre-owned luxury vehicle like the ones offered at Collierville Auto Center could be the right fit to meet your needs. Here are a few reasons to consider a pre-owned luxury vehicle for your teen:
A Fuel Efficient Ride We all want our cars to get us from point A to point B. But, how you drive to your destination could determine the type of car you should get. If fuel efficiency is at the top of your priority list, you’ll want to opt for a vehicle that gets more miles per gallon depending on how you drive. Is your commute in stop-and-go city traffic, or is it mainly on the highway? Cars can get up to double the miles per gallon on the highway versus driving in city traffic according to Consumer Reports. Tested & Approved Fuel economy is one of those buzzwords connected to buying a car, but how is it actually determined for the make and model you are searching for? Vehicles are tested in the National Vehicles and Fuel Emissions Laboratory. Each vehicle is rigorously tested using a dynamometer which simulates a driving environment. A driver will run the simulation through various trip tests that would be similar to driving in city and highway traffic. For cars using carbon-based fuels like gasoline, diesel or natural gas, a hose is connected to the tailpipe to collect engine exhaust during lab testing. The collected exhaust will then be used to determine how much gas is actually being burned.
The Difference Between Luxury & Premium What is the real difference in buying a luxury vehicle and a premium one? Is it affordability? Is it fancy features? In recent years, premium models are catching up with luxury vehicles in features and capability, so the lines are much more blurred. But, luxury vehicles are still regarded as higher-end and premium as a little bit more middle of the road and affordable. So, why should you choose one over the other?
