The Best Luxury Cars For Your Family

Standard

We love our kids, and as much as we want to let them do whatever they want (i.e: drive and stay out late), but we also want to make sure that they come home safe and in one piece.

If you’re a parent and you’re thinking of getting your child a new set of wheels this coming New Year, you will find this article by the IIHS – Insurance Institute for Highway Safety – very useful.

ARLINGTON, Va. — Many teenagers are driving vehicles that don’t offer good crash protection and lack important safety technology, new research by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety shows. To help guide parents toward safer choices, IIHS has compiled its first-ever list of recommended used vehicles for teens.

IIHS is known for its ratings of new vehicles, but for many families, a 2014 TOP SAFETY PICK or TOP SAFETY PICK+ isn’t in the budget. In a national phone survey conducted for IIHS of parents of teen drivers, 83 percent of those who bought a vehicle for their teenagers said they bought it used.

With that reality in mind, the Institute has compiled a list of affordable used vehicles that meet important safety criteria for teen drivers (see below). There are two tiers of recommended vehicles with options at various price points, ranging from less than $5,000 to nearly $20,000, so parents can buy the most safety for their money, whatever their budget.

“A teenager’s first car is more than just a financial decision,” says IIHS President Adrian Lund. “These lists of recommended used vehicles can help consumers factor in safety, in addition to affordability.”

With that in mind, just how then do we mix safety with economical and practical budget-friendly cars that are within our savings? Before you purchase your child’s car, it might be safer to start by renting cars first prior to buying one. That way, you can see just how responsible your kids are when they are left to handle the car on their own. By renting, special occasions would be a perfect time to lease; and exotic car rentals are one of the best options you can have to ensure that the cars you are borrowing confine to the standards and guidelines of safety in the road.

The next article from Forbes will give you some great tips on how to choose the right car for your kids, keeping in mind both safety and practicality in terms of price:

Though statistics suggest today’s teenagers aren’t as eager to get behind the wheel as were their car-crazy predecessors, obtaining a driver’s license and driving one’s first car remains an important rite of passage for young adults. Unfortunately, a recent study found that many teens are driving vehicles that are woefully insufficient in terms of crash protection and safety technology.

This is particularly crucial, as car crashes remain the leading cause of death among Americans ages 15 to 19, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

And lastly, still from Forbes, here in the article The Safest Used Cars For Teen Drivers, the website gives us the following recommendations such as:

The group’s recommendations are guided by four main principles:

• Young drivers should stay away from high horsepower. Powerful engines can tempt teens to test the limits.

• Bigger, heavier vehicles protect better in a crash. The recommended list does not include minicars or small cars; small SUVs are included, as their weight is similar to that of a midsize car.

• ESC is a must. This feature helps a driver maintain control of the vehicle on curves and slippery roads; it reduces risk on a level comparable to safety belts.

• Vehicles should have the best safety ratings possible. At least good ratings in the institute’s moderate overlap front test, acceptable ratings in its side crash test and four or five stars from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Safety Above Anything Else: Ride Only The Trusted Cars

Standard

I was browsing through the internet for  safe and comfortable luxury car that would fit my family’s lifestyle perfectly. You see, driving a beautiful car when you are a single man and driving a car when you have kids are two different things. You have to consider safety among everything when you have your little tikes on board.

Being a parent does not lessen your luxury at all. You can always combine both safety and luxury any time with these high-end cars that’s featured in this Forbes article:

Got a few tikes to tool around town? No need to get behind the wheel of a minivan. Shop wisely, and you’ll see it’s possible to drive a more stylish car with luxurious leather seats, a superior sound system–and plenty of holders for your children’s sippie cups.

See what I mean?

Safety should be the number one priority of all drivers (not just parents). Everyone who holds a steering wheel must be responsible enough to respect pedestrians and value lives. Even http://camryn-limo.com/Camryn/fleet/# and other car rental companies have policies with regards to responsible driving.

As I was looking for videos, I saw this cool source that showed real-life testing of the Volvo. Watch this video below to learn about the safety features of V60, not only to its passengers but also to the people crossing the street.

Practical Options When Buying Your Luxury Cars

Standard

Luxury cars, also known as “Dream Cars” are not given that name for no reason. These cars are what only a few people are fortunate enough to own and most people would want to have for their Birthday. Many times, car rentals are great ways to experience the life of the luxury and comfort.

However, if you want to buy your own luxury car, especially this Christmas season, you have to know the different and practical ways to choose your cars wisely. CBS Money Watch asks the question, “Can you afford a luxury car?”

“If you’ve been casting envious eyes on those Mercedes and BMWs in the office parking lot, you may be wondering if you could fit a luxury car into your budget. Luxury brands have been reading your mind and indeed have brought out more affordable models. But make sure you calculate all the costs that come with owning a luxury car — not just the purchase price.
You wouldn’t be the only one considering so-called entry-level luxury cars — those with purchase prices often starting under $35,000. Growth in this segment has been a major reason that luxury vehicles have increased their market share in recent years, according to an April report from analysts at the National Auto Dealers Association Used Car Guide. “The data suggests that the growth was due almost exclusively to new buyers entering the market,” not habitual luxury buyers trading down to less expensive models.”

Autobytel lists the Top 10 Least Expensive Luxury Cars, which includes the following on the list:

“1. 2015 Chrysler 200
2. 2015 Buick Verano
3. 2015 Acura ILX
4. 2014 Acura ILX Hybrid
5. 2015 Buick Regal
6. 2015 Audi A3
7. 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class
8. 2014 Acura TSX
9. 2015 Acura TLX
10. 2014 Hyundai Azera”

Like all buyers, you’re thinking of long-term investment when it comes to your newly purchased vehicle, especially when you don’t intend to buy another one in the next few years. Maintenance is another thing to consider when choosing your vehicle. USA Today wrote in an article entitled “KBB: Vehicles that will cost you least to own for 5 years”:

“The Mazda and Lexus brands overall were named the cheapest brands of vehicles to own in the annual “2014 5-year Cost to Own” awards by car shopping data service Kelley Blue Book and KBB.com.

They were the mainstream and luxury brand winners for the second consecutive year, based on their overall lineups having lowest costs to own. KBB also named, regardless of brand, the individual models by vehicle category this year with the lowest projected tab for the first five years of ownership.

The awards look beyond sticker price to include estimated depreciation, maintenance and repair, fuel costs, finance and insurance fees and state fees. Depreciation and gassing up are the big-ticket items in that equation but the others can add up over five years. KBB says it compiles the annual list to help shoppers make a budget-wise purchase decision informed by more than just the deal to drive off the dealer lot.”

Standard

Award-winning cars are more then just your regular set of four-wheels in a metal body. These cars offer their users luxury, comfort, safety, and even durability. When it comes to choosing your car, if you are planning to buy your own car, it is important to take note of some of the car brands and models that have made their mark in the field of car manufacturing.

Here’s a quick recap of last year’s list of luxury cars that bagged different awards:

Motorweek has revealed in the article 2015 Drivers’ Choice Awards, saying:

“Each year we roll out the red carpet for our annual Drivers’ Choice Awards. These are the cars and trucks we would like to have parked in our driveway, or at least dream about owning if we won the lottery. We look at the factors mattering most to consumers – price, practicality, performance and fuel efficiency. Then our editorial staff selects the best models in a variety of lifestyle categories ranging from family sedan to luxury car, to large utilities and pickups. From that group, an overall best of the year is chosen. MotorWeek’s Drivers’ Choice Awards have been presented annually since 1983.

MotorWeek names the Ford Mustang as its “Best of the Year” pick from among all 2015 Drivers’ Choice Award winners. The 2015 Ford Mustang, the 6th generation of America’s original pony car, stood out amongst stiff competition for its eye catching retro-inspired exterior design, modern drivetrains, honest mquality and overall progression.”

As for family-oriented users, Cars.com has named Hyundai  Santa-Fe as the Family Car of the Year 2015:

“It’s rare that any one car fits the stringent requirements of the complex, varied roles of our staffers’ family lives. The Santa Fe comes so close to being a perfect fit, how could we possibly not award it Family Car of the Year? It is, simply put, the … best … family … car for 2015. The Santa Fe offers loads of standard features to make families swoon, impressive fit and finish, drive settings customizable for every driver in your brood, and Hyundai’s legendary 10-year, 100,000-mile powertrain warranty. Wait a minute. You’re going to give us more stuff for less money? Where do we sign? Oh, and did I mention Hyundai’s impressive suite of available BlueLink features perfect for families, including curfew and speed limit alerts, along with geo-fencing to help keep new teen drivers safely accountable? Add in other available extras like heated second-row seats, ventilated front seats, integrated rear sunshades and a massive panoramic sunroof and the Santa Fe might just feel luxurious enough to leave the kids home with a sitter and sneak away for a date night.”

The Benefits Of Renting Over Buying A Car

Standard

Let’s face it, some things are worth buying while some things are better off borrowed. When it comes to cars, the best may bargain may come in the renting and not in owning one. Luxury car rental has become more and more popular in the past few years. It has become a trend for a very good reason. The many advantages of renting a car over renting one has led clients to patronize luxury car rental companies such as http://camryn-limo.com/Camryn/business-travel/.

If you’ve never tried renting luxury cars before, perhaps reading Enlighten Me’s “Top 10 Advantages to Renting a Car” will help you appreciate this kind of service more:

“People rent cars for many reasons: business trips, family vacations, or to replace a car that’s being repaired. Whatever the circumstances, renting a car can have many advantages over driving your own.”

Another comparison was brought into light by Aliaschman in the article “Advantages Or Disadvantages of Buying Or Renting a Car”, it says:

“Renting or buying a car has its advantages and disadvantages. The peace of mind that comes from owning a car is great but the stress of high monthly payments and costly repairs can be a burden. Rented cars are great for a business traveller if the company takes care of these expenses but for those who do not have that luxury the long term payments from renting a car could buy you one.”

And for those who are looking for practical reasons why renting a car is the best resort, here’s a short clip made by TheNotSoOrdinaryWife that sees the perspective of almost every person who’s after practicality and usefulness:

Protect Your Cars From Thieves

Standard

There are many benefits a luxury car can provide, but one downside of driving it is probably becoming a highlight to thieves everywhere you go. Let’s face it, no matter how safe your neighborhood is, chances are, a luxury car will attract unwanted attention at one point or another. Maybe not in your own neighborhood, but when you take it out for a ride or when you park it elsewhere, the danger of losing your expensive car is possible.

Being called a “luxury car” makes it more vulnerable to car thieves. Among the many cars available out in the market, luxury cars may provide safety features during driving, but the safety features doesn’t seem to cover the possibility of the car being stolen. So what cars are prone to be stolen?

According to The Guardian, in the article “Thieves Target Luxury Range Rovers With Keyless Locking Systems”:

“For most of us telling an insurance company that we park on the street outside our house pushes up premiums, but for owners of new Range Rovers it could make their car uninsurable. A spate of thefts means that some insurers are refusing to cover Range Rover drivers in London unless they have somewhere secure to park their car.

The models favoured by thieves are those with “keyless” ignition systems, which they have found a way to break into using a handheld device. Figures from the Metropolitan police show that between January and July 2014 almost 300 Range Rover Evoques and Range Rover Sports were stolen, along with 63 BMW X5s and Series 3 models. As a result, some insurers are making off-road parking a provision when they agree to cover these vehicles and insisting that drivers buy specialist security devices.”

Explained further in the article Secrets of how car thieves use hi-tech scanners to reprogramme electronic keys and swipe top executive models to be revealed by BBC Watchdog:

“The secret of how criminals are using easy-to-buy electronic scanners to steal some of Britain’s most popular executive cars in under 60 seconds – and without a scratch – is to be controversially revealed on screen by investigators at BBC Watchdog.

Experts say it highlights a major flaw in the security of leading luxury cars – including BMWs, Audis and Land Rovers. 

But the programme, to be shown on Thursday, has provoked fury even before it has been aired among car-makers who say the problem is not a weakness in car security – but the failure of law-makers to ban the general sale of the devices which allow the thieves to gain entry to the vehicles before driving them away.”

A new and safe way to keep your luxury cars is by using a new product called The SafeT Pedals. Here’s a video that will explain the product more:
