Different vehicle types and their advantages
People have always had different tastes and needs, even when it comes to vehicles. So over the years, manufacturers have worked with automotive designers to bring to life different models and types of vehicles to fit those needs. Vehicles types range from microcars, sports cars to SUVs and trucks. And because there are so many out there we will focus on the most popular styles in and around Edmonton: cars, SUVs, trucks, and vans.
If you live in Edmonton or anywhere else in Alberta then you know that most people driving cars either have a sedan or a hatchback. However, in exceptional cases and for sports enthusiasts or for people who just enjoy smaller cars, you might see coupés or some sport vehicles around town. Generally speaking, cars are the most affordable vehicles. They are also known for being the most fuel-efficient vehicles thanks to their size and the small engines they are built with. Therefore, they also have cheaper running costs because of their low fuel consumption. And thanks to their size, cars are also easier to park, they don’t require a huge amount of space. So guess who is going to easily find parking downtown?
SUVs and minivans can be lumped into the same category. And if you are looking for the most technologically advanced vehicles out there, then SUVs and minivans are the way to go. They have much more space than cars, making them a more family-friendly vehicle. SUVs are also easier to drive in the winter because they have a higher ground clearance, allowing the driver to be invincible in the winter. They are also the ideal vehicle to drive during the winter because they are equipped with a four-wheel-drive drivetrain that gives you the power and ability to confidently maneuver the slippery and icy roads. Additionally, minivans offer a little bit more room than SUVs, they can have up to seven or eights seats so that you don’t have to leave anyone behind.
Trucks are one of the most powerful personal vehicles created; and this is their number one advantage. With a great towing and hauling capacity, they will help you get the work done. So if you need to carry equipment or material for your job, a truck will carry the weight for you. And even when you have to drive off-road, a truck will be your best companion and take you safely to your destination. Thanks to their size, they enable you to easily and confidently navigate the winter weather conditions.
Small vans fall under the commercial vehicle category. So if you have a medium size business and need to carry your materials or goods, then vans will be the way to go. They are spacious and will help you take your business anywhere, they will also keep your goods undamaged whether it’s raining or snowing. Vans are also well built and reliable, so they can last your business for years to come. Regardless of the season or the time of the year, vans will still work efficiently allowing your business operations to carry on.
