Car loans shoppers offered buying advice

Advice for drivers who may recently have secured car finance has been offered by a number of sources this week, including one expert who suggests safety does not have to mean energy efficiency is sacrificed.

Advice for drivers who may recently have secured car finance has been offered by a number of sources this week, including one expert who suggests safety does not have to mean energy efficiency is sacrificed. In an article for the Seattle Times, Tom Watson states that choosing between a safe and eco-friendly vehicle can be difficult, but by ensuring a car has basic safety features, such as side-curtain airbags and a high crash test score, this can be less of a challenge. "In purchasing decisions, a car's environmental impact should share equal billing with safety, durability, attractiveness and price," he told the newspaper. Parker's Car Price Guide advised those with car loans to consider a range of bargains on the current market such as Toyota's Auris which can be bought online for around £2,500 less than its original list price of £12,645. Small cars were also recommended by the group, as they are less likely to depreciate due to the increasing demand for more fuel-efficient cars.© Adfero Ltd
