Great Models for First Time Car Buyers

The world of car-buying is overwhelming and stressful for most first time car buyers. Thinking of all the papers to sign, the credit check anxiety, and other concerns pile up for new buyers at most dealerships, but at Leduc Hyundai, you can trust our staff to help you get the right Hyundai for you, hassle-free.

Car buying has never been easier, and you can be in and out in less time than ever before thanks to advances in technology helping along almost every step of the process. The first step is always finding out which vehicle you want. The following is a list of three great models for first time car buyers and some reasons why you should choose them. Figures below refer to either new 2020 or 2021 model year specifications for use as examples.

Analysis of Models

These three models present an ideal division of vehicle types for first-time car buyers. The Kona is a subcompact crossover SUV and is best for those who need the most cargo space. The Hyundai Accent 5-Door is a hatchback, so it has a little less cargo space, but a more car-like driving experience. The Hyundai Elantra is a sedan, so it delivers the most familiar driving experience with the added benefit of having a more powerful engine. Nothing beats the Accent for starting price, but commuters and other frequent highway drivers may find they save enough money at the pump with the Elantra to make up for it.
