If you are on a budget, then you will need to think carefully about the type of car that you buy. You will have to make the purchase that matches how much you have to spend. But, if you can afford more when buying your next vehicle, we suggest taking the chance to get a luxury car.

There are a number of reasons why you should spend more on your next car, no matter what type you are looking for.

Safety

We bet you never thought that spending more on a car means that you have a safer ride. But, actually it does. We are not talking about basic features such as airbags and seatbelts. These come equipped in all vehicles. What we are talking about is performance and in particular braking distances. It is a peculiar face that cars that can go faster have better braking distances than slower vehicles. This is due to how well a vehicle has been made and it means that if you do need to stop in a car your life is less at risk if you are driving a luxury sports car. Peculiar, yet true.

You will find that cars with a bigger price come with the lyatest security features that will keep your car safe when locked.

Reliability

It is no coincidence that one of the most reliable brands in the world, the landrover is also one of the most expensive brands. You are paying for the build of the car and how much effort has gone into making the machine. Now, we should point out that not all expensive cars have excellent reliability. Lotuses, for instance, are world renowned for breaking down often and dramatically. But, if you do spend a little more on your vehicle it is likely that you will be spending less time at an auto repair shop than if you bought a cheaper model.

Comfort

You probably do not want to know the average time a person spends in traffic in their lifetime. But, we are going to tell you anyway. The average person spends thirty-eight hours a year in traffic. That means thirty-eight hours where you are sitting in a car, and it is rarely moving. It also means that on average you will spend three months in traffic in your lifetime. That may not seem like a great amount of time lost. But, if you live in a major city that duration can triple or even quadruple.

Our point is that if you are going to spend that much time in your car you want it to be comfortable and even luxurious. You will only get that experience by spending a little more.

Used Car

We cannot all afford an expensive car brand new. But, most of can afford one if we buy it second hand. However, if you do start shopping for luxury used cars we still recommend you spend more than you would expect too. This is because cheap used cars often have hidden underlying problems. They may not show themselves immediately. But the seller knows about them, and that is why they are selling the car at a cheaper price.

Remember, a car is a luxury not a necessity. That means if you want the best experience in your vehicle, you are going to have to spend a little bit more. It will be worth it in the long term.
