So, you want to buy a new car but are unsure about which type to buy. If you’re new to buying or haven’t made a purchase in many years, it can be hard to know where to begin. How do you find a car that perfectly suits your needs?

You’ve got to ask yourself a few questions when deciding about the type of car that you want. How much do you want to spend? How much room do you need? What purpose is it for? How many people will you be driving around in it? Which car is better for city or regional driving? And most of all: What is it like to drive this specific car?

That’s where we come in. With a large fleet of vehicles in all shapes and sizes, we can help you decide which type of car best suits you with rentals that offer you the freedom to adventure and explore every option. Test drives are all good and useful, but you never really get a true feel for a car and how fits into your lifestyle unless you’re behind the wheel for some time, which you can achieve when you rent a car.

Let’s start with a simple question: what are you looking for in a car? We’re here to help you find out which vehicle suits you best. Whether it’s a sedan or SUV, ute or hatchback, we’ve got a fleet of car hire vehicles ready for you to try out on the road for as long as you want!

Check out some of the most common cars out on the road today and what they’re best used for:

  1. Sedan

This is the type of car you would doodle in math class as a kid. Although more traditional than other vehicles and not as popular as they used to be, their four doors, wholly enclosed trunk and sloping back make it an easy pick for those wanting the efficiency of a small car with the safety and room of a large one.

Sedans are also great for travelling to the city with the family, as they don’t need as much room to manoeuvre as some of the larger vehicles out on the road. Plus, with the abundant technology incorporated into cars these days, you will find it a much safer and pleasant drive.

  1. SUV

SUV’s now outsold the traditional sedan due to their practicality, safety and versatility. Suited to families, they come in different sizes to suit your individual needs whether it is for extracurricular activities, road trips or shopping. Some SUVs even offer all-wheel drive (AWD) or semi-off-road options if you want more performance out of your vehicle.

SUVs are raised from the ground and provide a three-door or five-door option, the extra door being the one at the back. This makes them ideal for those with disabilities who can’t drop down into a sedan with more comfort and space provided with numerous access points. Their stylish and sporty appearance also lends well to those who want to make a statement as well as people who thrive on adventure and enjoy exploring our great backyard.

  1. Hatchback

Hatchbacks are king when it comes to city driving. Mainly suited to younger or budget-conscious buyers, these compact cars are well-built and nicely appointed inside. Available in all different shapes and sizes, the one distinguishable feature of this type of car is its namesake “hatchback”: when the roof line suddenly dips past the doors to an upward opening hatch at the back of the car.

  1. Ute

Utes are quintessentially Australian, with more tradesmen and businesses investing in these tough workhorses they are one of the most popular vehicles on the market. With an impressive range of storage solutions including canopies, pull-out sliding drawers, locked trayback toolboxes, tray racks and more you can customise these vehicles to your needs. This makes them extremely versatile and popular in many industries around Australia.

However, this does not mean that utes don’t come with luxuries too. If you are an avid 4WD enthusiast you will love the spacious, comfortable and tech-filled interior within the dual cab options you can purchase. On the other hand, if you want more space in your back single cab utes are the perfect workhorses for the travelling tradie.

The right car for you depends on what you expect from a car. Some of us like to make statements, others are solely focused on practicality. But no matter the car you’re looking at, ensure that you take into consideration how much you enjoy driving it. You can only figure that out with extended drives in the vehicle of your choice.
