Petrol or diesel: which car is right for you?

If you’re a tower or hitting the open road, a diesel car can be a reliable and trusty sidekick.  Petrol vehicles are still high-revving, peaky pieces of work that drink slightly more, but are more fun for it.

Automatic VS. Manual

In the past it was pretty much a given that vehicles with manual transmissions would be more fuel-efficient than their automatic counterparts. But as automatics become more advanced and gain additional gears, they are often now overtaking manuals in terms of fuel economy.

In most cases, the manual version of a car will indeed cost less, but in some instances, it’s the same price as an automatic.

How to choose your next family car?

Whatever type of vehicle you are considering, a number of key factors need to be taken into account when addressing your family’s motoring needs. And although factors such as style, performance and prestige may still be considerations, it’s the practicalities that usually top the priority list for families.

What to know before entering a dealership?

You don’t have to be a mechanic to spot underlying issues with a used car, there are a few tell-tell signs if you know where to look.

Firstly, we’d recommend inspecting the wheels and bumpers.

Check the brakes too (when it is safe to do so of course). Find a quiet lane, drive in a straight line and brake firmly. While out on the test drive, listen out for any knocking or vibrations too, especially when the steering wheel is on full lock.

Finally, make sure you start and drive the car when the engine is cold.

Engine size, what does it mean?

An engine’s size is otherwise referred to as its ‘capacity’ or ‘displacement’. Without getting too complicated, it’s a measurement of how much space the engine’s pistons operate in. A bigger number means each piston is able to push more air and fuel through the car’s engine every time it moves.

The number is expressed in cubic centimeters (cc) and on engines with a capacity or displacement greater than 1,000cc (one litre) it’s usually rounded up to the nearest tenth of a litre. As a rule of thumb, the bigger this number is, the more power you can expect the engine to produce.
