Depending on where you’re employed, getting into your workplace can be super simple or an absolute trek. Slick city cars won’t be any good for a gardener getting to work, just like a Range Rover isn’t probably the best option for a secretary who only needs to drive 10 minutes to the office. So what sort of cars are most likely to get you to work on time, wherever you work? Here’s our guide!
For city workers and those who are tied to their computer, a small but perfectly formed car is essential for nipping in and out of that gridlocked traffic, as well as being compact enough to park anywhere. The Mercedes-Benz produced second hand SMART cars are a great city option: plenty of storage, easy on the fuel, and small enough to fit into that tiny parking space you’ve been allocated.
However, if you’re in London, the best option has to be a hybrid car, because this particular type of used car is exempt from Boris’ congestion charge. Failing that, make use of one of the highlights of London and ditch your car entirely for the public transport.
If you’re a parent doing the school run before you rush off to work, then don’t go for what seems to be the most popular type of vehicle at the moment for parents – a huge 4 x 4 – but instead opt for something quick that has plenty of storage. After all, you never know when they might have after-school gym class/violin lesson/astronomy club and they desperately need their PE kit/musical instrument/telescope to be stashed in the boot. A classic second hand hatchback is an excellent choice, providing you with plenty of storage without the clunkiness of a 4 x 4.
For those of you who work a little out of town, whether that’s out in the countryside or on a farm, then the iconic Landrover is a must buy. Used Landrovers aren’t hard to come by, and their robust build, responsive manoeuvring and all-terrain tyres make them ideal for countryside workers. And if you work even further out – like an oil rig – why not have a look at our amphibious vehicles article from the other day?
