How to choose your first car

DRIVING your own car may sound really exciting but are you sure you have made the right choice? Cars may look stylish and sexy but each of them is uniquely designed to fit to a lifestyle. And just randomly picking what appears great for you may cause you troubles in the future. So, let's pair up some cars to match your needs.

1.) 2018 Mazda 3 for the lady boss

Fitting for a lady, the 2018 Mazda 3 lets you drive smoothly (literally and figuratively). It's not the quickest car to drive but it is the best to handle.

It doesn't have the biggest cargo capacity in its class either, but it will certainly hold a whole lot of stuff. Just a big enough space to fit all your extra outfit for the next board meeting or some luggage for your emergency out-of-town trips.

In the competitive budget-conscious compact sedan and hatchback class, the 2018 Mazda 3 is a rarity for exceeding expectations and delivering far more than its price would suggest. We bore this out in a yearlong test of this car's current generation as well as subsequent evaluation of newer variants.

2.) Audi A3 for the young bachelor

Athletic details drive the design of the A3 family. The Singleframe® grille leads with a sporty stance, while available LED headlights help illuminate the path ahead. In the cabin, a standard panoramic sunroof in the A3 Sedan offers sweeping views that bring the outside world in.

This third generation A3 debuts the new Volkswagen Group MQB platform, upon which around 10 million cars a year will be built.

It’s clever, highly flexible and features some technical jewels that help make the A3 much more premium-feel than before. They don’t come cheap but do help distinguish the A3 from mainstream alternatives.

3.) 2018 Subaru Outback to carry the whole family

While the Subaru Outback is a smart, practical versatile choice for families, its unique attitude is what makes it stand out among the crossover crowd. It has Subaru’s go-anywhere attitude, combined with the cargo volume of an SUV and the ride quality of a comfy sedan. This Subaru is a multi-year Family Car favorite that continues to make a strong case as an alternative to the traditional SUV. It’s a far cry from the wood-paneled family trucksters of the past, now much more crossover than station wagon.

4.) Chevrolet Spark for the sweet couple

Tight budgets are common in newly-married couples, so if you’re a bit strapped for cash, then the Chevy Spark is an excellent choice. Not too expensive and not too cheap, financially conscious couples will find a lot to love in the Spark as it comes with a surprising amount of standard equipment that seems geared toward the younger, more technology-savvy crowd.
