New Years is right around the corner and a lot of us have our eyes set on making some big-time purchases to enter the new year with a bang. Some of us are actually planning on driving home a brand new, shiny vehicle that we have been dreaming about all this while and the time couldn’t be better. Practically all car companies and their dealerships are offering the best of deals and after sales services right now. But buying a new vehicle isn’t just about the price.
Here are a few other things that you need to keep in mind.
1. New vs used
Everyone has different needs and different resources available to them. That’s why when you’re doing your homework on researching vehicles, don’t shy away from a quick comparison on new vs used models of the Hyundai car you like. You never know you might get a better deal or a car that has been used only for a year! Similarly, if you’re going for a new vehicle, don’t forget to take a look at the deals that authorised dealerships are offering. They are always better than the deals offered by the outside market.
2. Car type
The very next thing that you need to find out is what type of car are you looking for. Are you looking for a vehicle you can drive around for longer distances, across various terrains or do you need something that is meant only for intercity travelling – like going to and fro from work? This is an important step as it will save you from overspending and then eventually underusing the vehicle you purchase.
3. Car parking
Once you know which car type you’re looking for, the very next thing you need to look into is the car parking space available to you. You could have an independent garage available to you, you might have an open car parking in your colony or the car parking space available to you may be too small for the vehicle you’re planning to purchase. You need to make sure that you’re either able to find the space to park your vehicle securely or choose a vehicle that suits your current needs more.
4. Petrol vs diesel
When you’re already getting things out of the way, remember to also think about which vehicle will suit you better – a petrol car or a diesel car. In fact, you even have the option to choose CNG today, and each one of the fuel options come with their own set of pros and cons. If you’re looking at saving some money on fuel, opt for a diesel or a CNG vehicle. However, diesel cars can be more expensive to purchase and service at a later stage; in that case, you might want to go with a petrol variant of the car you’re wanting to buy.
5. Test drive
As we always tell our customers, never buy a vehicle without test driving it personally. Everyone has different expectations from the vehicle they drive. They might or might not like how the driving experience of the Hyundai car, and that might lead to regretting the purchase later. So go ahead and schedule your test drive with an authorised Hyundai dealership. Make sure you ask as many questions as possible to feel comfortable about the vehicle.
6. After sales services
Once you have test driven the vehicle, probed for deals and discounts, remember to probe a little further about the post-sales services the dealership offers. With the current state of the roads today, even the best of cars sometimes need a little love and care from experts. That’s why your dealership should be able to provide you with expert servicing solutions, with transparent pricing.

7. Get everything in writing
You might get the best of vibes from the dealership. But before you purchase the Hyundai car, take everything that has been promised to you by the dealership, in writing. This could be a free service or discounts on complementary products. You want to keep yourself in the safe always!
8. Financing options
Based on the price of the Hyundai car you’re purchasing and the finances available to you, ask the dealership to offer some financing options. You want to be able to enjoy driving your vehicle in the new year, without having to constantly worry about the instalments that need to go through.
While a lot of people leave this for later, we at Capital Hyundai believe that you should purchase an insurance for your car side by side. Ask your dealership to help you with the same as they remain the most up-to-date with the best policies in the market, and will be able to guide you better based on your needs.
Whether you’re a first-time buyer or a seasoned driver, make sure that you have all the documentation in place before you drive home your Hyundai car. You don’t want to be chasing the dealership for papers at a later stage, as that might create confusion or lead to you getting into legal trouble.
