A few years back, car manufacturers were all about creating the best sports utility vehicle ever, thus abundance of SUVs in the market. Then, various small vehicles like the Toyota Wigo arrived in the Philippines’ market, introducing fuel-efficient vehicle options to the public. This changed the attitude of consumers when it came to purchasing a vehicle.
If you are looking for a car to buy, you have to consider a few things first, such as why you want to purchase a car in the first place. If you want to own a car mainly because you need a fast but safe way to get from Point A to Point B, then you should think of buying a small car like the Toyota Wigo. Small vehicles are very advantageous compared to its hulking counterparts. To help convince you, here are some of the benefits of owning a small vehicle.
You have to consider its maintenance as well as gas usage when you are buying a new car; after all, what’s the point of purchasing a car if you can’t afford the fuel needed for it to run? If you want a fuel efficient vehicle, then you should buy a small car as since they are lighter thanks to their smaller engines, making them more fuel efficient than larger vehicles.
Ease of Driving
The Philippines, especially the Metro, is littered with narrow and one way streets, which may be difficult for big cars to maneuver in. You need to be a good driver to avoid hitting something as you make a turn or try to park your car; however, try putting a small car in place of your humongous vehicle and you’ll have a better chance of driving out of that narrow maze without scratching your car. With a smaller vehicle, you can make a U-Turn, Parallel Park, and navigate crowded streets with ease.
When you purchase a small car, you are helping Mother Nature. How? Since smaller vehicles are fuel efficient, it makes fewer poisonous gas emissions in the environment too! In addition, it is so much easier to wash a small car, meaning you don’t need to waste a lot of water to wash your Toyota Wigo clean. This is especially helpful if your city or province is experiencing an especially dry spell this summer.
Compared to larger vehicles, smaller cars are a lot cheaper due to the lesser amount of materials used for production just like mufflers also made in the Philippines which are no wonder a lot less costly than metal parts made elsewhere. Lesser materials mean less money used, allowing the company to sell the cars at a lower cost. Since smaller vehicles also have great gas mileage, they are definitely a better choice compared to larger vehicles.
There are certainly a lot of perks in buying a small car instead of a larger vehicle. Not only are they cheaper, they get better gas mileage and are more fuel efficient too. This means a small car is not only more affordable, it’s also easier on your budget in the long run.
