We are driven by the belief that stories can bridge gaps, that narratives can weave cultures together, and that every journey, no matter how big or small, has a story worth sharing.





There’s a car for everybody. At least, that’s what they say. In our day and time, however, this statement seems to be more than true. There are plenty of options where to choose from, and there is a vehicle that fits the personality of each of us. But below we have more information on how to choose your vehicle, depending on the lifestyle that you have.

Choose the type of vehicle that you prefer

Vehicles come in various types, from sedans, hatchbacks, coupes and convertibles. But before deciding what type of vehicle you want to invest in, take into account your necessities. If you are a single male looking for speed and fun, choose a Dodge Challenger from Edmunds. If you are a family man, a roomy SUV will meet your necessities better. A minivan takes the family vehicle concept even further, being suitable for very large families, or for large groups of friends. Take into account these variables, see what your primary necessities are and decide which type of vehicle suits those best.

Your driving style matters

If you are focused on the driving experience itself, then choose a coupe or a convertible. These types of vehicles are focused on speed, braking and steering, and they are more likely to offer you the experience that you need. If you are focused on the space necessity, as well as the driving experience offered by a vehicle, then a hatchback or sedan will certainly satisfy you.

Take into account your location

Living in a very populated metropolis oftentimes limits driver’s options to more compact vehicles, that are easy to handle, park and so on. However, if you live in a suburb, and you also have a generous family, you can easily opt for a minivan or a roomy SUV. Think about all these things and decide which option suits your lifestyle better. This will help you pick a style and a dimension for your vehicle, as these may determine the utility levels that it will have. Larger vehicles are suitable for families, and coupes for single individuals. These two options can be easily adapted to your location’s specifics.

Aesthetics is also important

We all care about how good or bad our vehicles are looking. Luckily, manufacturers nowadays produce vehicles with increased aesthetic features, while preserving the performance at incredible parameters. Depending on your personal preferences, make a decision, because the aesthetic of your vehicle also influences the way that others see you. For instance, your employers, your colleagues or potential romantic interests will judge you based on how good-looking (and properly maintained) your vehicle is.

These are some simple guidelines you can following order to identify what type of vehicle is the most appropriate for the lifestyle that you have and that will answer to all your daily necessities. Before you establish everything above, connect the dots, and start researching your actual options. There are plenty of websites where you can find vehicles at accessible prices and an incredible quality, even for used ones.
