If you are looking for a new car, there are plenty of things that you need to consider. The list of things you need to bear in mind is practically endless. However, some considerations are more important than others. One of the most vital is the badge, or brand name. Unlike many other kinds of purchase, the brand of a car is actually very important. Brands vary widely, and you need to be able to know the differences between them if you want to choose the right car for you. In this post, we will take a look at some of the best all-round brands, and compare them against each other. Which will come out on top?VolkswagenVolkswagen have provided us with some real classics in the past, they forged their reputation with the Golf which is their bread and butter car, often the number one car on sale in Europe. But of all the models they offer the Polo is a very sweet side dish. And it also happens to be another big seller for VW. If you buy a new Volkswagen Polo, for example, you will be might be surprised at how spacious the interior is. A 2015 facelift kept the Volkswagen Polo looking better than ever. The Polo now shares Volkswagen’s 1.0-litre three-cylinder petrol engine with the smaller up! city car, but there’s also a more potent turbo version available. However, if you need a bit more oomph, the punchy and efficient 1.2 TSI engine is the one to go for. If you’re after an eco champion, VW’s high-efficiency BlueMotion technology has been applied to the 1.0 TSI, with a claimed fuel economy of 68.9mpg and 94g/km CO2 emissions. There are plenty of trim levels and equipment spec to suit all budgets.
ToyotaFamed for being one of the most reliable brands around, that is not all that Toyota have going for them. They tend to build solid if not the most boring cars on the planet. Don’t expect any flair with a Toyota expect a bout of depression to set in. Remember when ever you buy a new Toyota also make sure you have access to anti-depression pills and a good psychological therapist. You’ll definitely need one if you buy a new Toyota AYGO as an example. The Aygo relies heavily on trendy marketing tricks both in written and audio/visual form. It’s only after a months of ownership that the deep bout of depression sets in. Research suggests that the Aygo is responsible for more people being placed on suicide watch than any other car on the market. The Aygo is likely to go down in history as being one of the most ambiguous cars ever sold.AudiThis is a brand which seems able to produce a wide variety of different kinds of vehicles. Yet, they all have one thing in common: they are all subtlety good-looking style machines. That means Audi are masters of offering you a great deal of choice when you are buying. Audi make cars with as little powers a 1.0-litre three cylinder engine all the way up to the RS6… by way of example. This is a “dad” supercar for the man who wants superior performance but with the added benefit of comfort and practicality. The RS6 features a 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 engine and outputs 597 bhp and 750 N·m of torque. The top speed is electronically limited to 155.3 mph derestrietced it can go upto 185mph. The Dynamic Plus package is said to reduce the 0-62mph time to just 3.7 seconds, and the car will get from 0 124.3 mph in 12.1 seconds. Fuel? Economy? you just don’t care when you have a performance model.
All three car brands offer low CO2 emitting, frugal and high performance cars. When we say low emitting none of these brands have very good public relations on that front VW by far has the worst image of all. So which car brand of the three is best? Actually none of the above. The best car brand is usually the one that can meet your budgetary requirements. And that’s a rather subjective opinion… isn’t it?
