A car fit for a professional
An Accord, a 9-5 or a Mondeo maybe?
Totalcarmagazine's own Buyer's guide
Dear Friendly Car Dealer,
I need to buy car and have a budget of €4,900, registration costs not included. It’s important that my future car projects a professional image to make a good impression on prospective clients of mine.
A modern, but timeless design with special features is welcome. I definitely don’t want anything too showy making the wrong impression (Mercedes, BMW) or something youngsters would typically choose (Honda Civic, Swift, etc.) A spacious interior is a must, as I’m 6’2” (190 cm) tall and have to fit in there comfortably, but the size of the boot is no issue, as I mostly travel on my own. Of course, I’d prefer a low consumption
and reasonable running costs. I don’t think I need a diesel, as I don’t drive that much. I do shorter distances on weekdays and do the odd weekend journey.
I’m thinking of something along the lines of the Honda Accord, a Saab 9-5 (love the shape!), and the Ford Mondeo. What do you think?
