Style And Value - Why You Should Opt For A Used Vehicle

Jessie Swanepoel
May 11, 2013

Every consumer looking to purchase a car has a different set of needs and wants regarding their vehicle. For example, a bigger family would most likely opt for a station wagon or a van while newly-wed couples might prefer a coupe. A used vehicle classified as a mid-sized sedan offers a happy medium between being a dependable everyday workhorse and having sporty styling to boot.

For those who are seeking to buy a vehicle without wanting to put too much of a drain on their budget, a used vehicle is one viable option that they can look into, particularly the 2012 line. The 2012 model is available both as a sedan and as a coupe.

Those who have tried driving such car model report that it is comfortable to handle thanks to its suspension. It offers good handling while it also offers security for both drivers and passengers because of its anti-lock disk brakes (ABS). On the other hand, the Vehicle Dynamics Control allows the driver to choose which stability and traction options best fit his driving style. Such car also boasts of the Xtronic Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT), a nifty feature that allows drivers to have smooth and stepless ratio shifts as well as the twin benefits of fuel economy and improved acceleration.

Getting inside the car, you will immediately see the well-thought out placement of controls, making them easy to view while driving. Back lights provide ample illumination when you are trying to view the tachometer or the fuel gauge. Its interiors are heavily outfitted with plastics. That is not to say that it diminishes the elegance of the interiors. There are also numerous spots to store beverages and gadgets such as cell phones. One major caveat about such car, though, is the limited headroom and legroom that it offers for backseat passengers.

Under the hood, you can choose from either a 4-cylinder engine or the more powerful V6 engine. The 4-cylinder engine has an output of 175 horsepower and 180 pound-feet of torque. On the other hand, the V6 engine has an output of 270 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque.

Features like push button start, air-conditioning and power windows, mirrors and locks are standard in every model of such vehicle. On the other hand, SR models come equipped with both a power driver seat and wood grain trims. Its additional options include navigation systems, Bluetooth and leather seats.
