From sporty JDM sedans to large monstrous beasts like the L200 Triton, Malaysians are spoilt for choice when it comes to the variety of cars here.

However, having more choices comes with the added burden of deciding on the right one. Today, we’ll take a look at different factors to consider when choosing your next car.

Regular Terrain

One consideration to make would be the terrain that you will most commonly be driving on. Do you live in the city and don’t enter the countryside often? Your options would be wide open as almost any car would be suitable with regards to urban road conditions.

If you reside in the kampungs where the terrain is usually rougher or uneven, you may want to consider a pick-up with 4WD capabilities, like the popular Toyota Hilux. If you often drive on both types of terrain, you may instead look for a comfortable yet just-as-capable SUV, such as the Subaru Forester.

Number of Passengers

Do you have a large family or do you just need a ride for you and your missus? Or maybe you’re looking to enjoy the bachelor’s lifestyle, which would make a 7-seater a bit much. The number of passengers you will most often have in your vehicle is another consideration when narrowing down your choices.

The price tag is, of course, one of the most important factors when deciding on a car. It wouldn’t matter what vehicle you select, if you ultimately cannot afford it. Some car owners are so set on their dream car that they end up destroying their financial stability in the process.

The result? Getting enslaved by steep monthly loan payments at high-interest rates. Set a budget and choose vehicles that are within it!

Modern cars these days usually come with a suite of advanced features, ranging from 360-degree cameras to remote starters to head-up displays. These features are generally nice-to-haves and aid in one's overall driving experience. They also provide a somewhat more futuristic vibe to your vehicle, as is the case for the 2022 Mercedes EQA 250. This brings us to the next point...

The car’s looks is also another factor. You may lean towards a vehicle that is more on-brand for you. For example, if you’re a pragmatic person who's also seeking practicality in a car, you wouldn’t mind settling down with a modest Honda City. Those looking to turn heads may prefer a more eye-catching vehicle, like a Mini Cooper or the sporty-looking Mazda RX-8. Classic VW Beetles from the 60s-70s are also popular among those with old souls, or those with an eye for vintage cars.

It’s important for you to like how your car looks as a vehicle requires periodic servicing and TLC - something that is easier to forget about when you’re not proud of your ride.
