Purchasing a Wagon As Your Next Vehicle? Here Are a Few Things to Consider

For a long time now, SUVs have been king of the road. While these vehicles are still very popular with car buyers today, there has been a noticeable increase in interest in wagon-style vehicles. Carmakers are responding to consumers who want the cargo space and people-carrying capacity of an SUV, but need the lower profile and better gas mileage of a sedan. There are many pros and cons to consider when deciding whether to choose a wagon or SUV as your next vehicle. Learning as much information before heading to the dealership will make it much easier to make a final decision that is best for you and your needs. Here are a few things to keep in mind if you’re in the market for a Volvo V60 in the Rockford area.

Tires and Mileage

The larger a vehicle’s tires are, as well as its overall size, the more fuel it consumes and the harder it may be for some drivers to control. It’s a good idea to consider how much fuel you can realistically afford in your monthly budget and use that information to guide you into choosing a vehicle that has a suitable fuel economy. It is also important to sufficiently test drive a vehicle to make sure you feel comfortable driving it.

Safety and Height

Another consideration related to vehicle size is to make sure that you choose a vehicle that you and your family can easily enter and exit in a safe manner. SUVs tend to have a high profile that requires stepping up into the vehicle. This may be a problem for small children, disabled persons or older adults. Wagons offer a lower profile that is fairly easy for most people to enter and exit.
