When doing a new car comparison, one thing to look at is the tech level for both of those cars. This is one of the main reasons that people choose new cars over used ones in today’s market. The used ones could technically still do the same job of getting them from place to place, but they lack all of the upgrades and advancements that new cars have.
For instance, look to see if you can get a GPS system built right into the dash. That way, no matter where you go on your trips, you can type in the address and know where you are going. You will never get lost. Many new cars have this as an option, but it is not usually a standard feature. Ask the dealer about it, because you might need to build and order your vehicle if you want to get the GPS built right in.
Another thing to consider is if you can connect your phone to the car’s speakers. Many new cars can do this with wireless technology. When a call comes in, you do not have to pick the phone up and hold it to your ear, which makes it harder to drive and which is even illegal in some states – like California – because it causes so many accidents. Instead, you just punch a button and then you can listen and talk right over the car’s sound system, just like listening to the radio or to your favorite MP3s.
