We (three adults) own 3 sedans We are looking to buy a new wagon/minisuv…whatever you want to call them. Seats 5 with cargo room in the back.
Price is no object…but I don’t need to, want to, get a $50,000 car when a $25,000 car meets my needs (which are simple).
It will be used for local errands, taking the two dogs to the local park, vacations maybe to the mountains but staying on main highways.
Cargo room in the back, how big the cargo space is might be a deal maker (I’d like more rather than less).
I like the idea of, design of, a back cargo door that is split horizontally so just the top opens up and you can also lower the bottom half down (but this is not a deal killer).
A/C heat vents behind the front seats, (rear passenger area) are a big deal maker.
4 cylinder is most likely fine, (don’t think why I would need more power?) but if I do willing to pay more.
Front wheel drive is fine.
I like the idea of noise reducing acoustics.
I like the idea of tire pressure monitors.
I am retired, don’t think I would need blue tooth (not sure what it even is?) fancy computer/hand free/phone internet stuff.
Do not need, want, moon or sun roofs.
Not sure about back up warning system, certainly sounds like a good idea but not essential? Not sure about the side mirror (I forget exactly what?) camera?, some thing that shows right side blind spots better when changing lanes?
We are all small people so don’t care too much about how big the interior passenger space is.
The more I look on the Internet, the more choices I see, and the more hopelessly confused I get!
If someone could narrow my choices down to maybe 4 specific models that I could focus on I would really appreciate it!
