Choosing a car

Making the leap in choosing a new car is not always easy. There are a lot of decisions to be made, based on safety ratings, size, price and even the color of your new vehicle. Thankfully, Kelley Blue Book has made buying a new car just a little less stressful with their yearly buying guides. Before you jump in and drive, consult their guides to see what they believe is the best vehicle your money can buy in 2014. To take a closer look at the 2014 vehicle buyer guides, visit KBB.com.

Convenient buyer guides
Their online buyer guides can help steer you in the right direction before you even leave the house for a test drive. If you have an idea of the size, price range or fuel economy of the vehicle you want, Kelley Blue Book has a compiled a list comparing different models and makes of vehicles. They offer key features, pricing and value information, head-to-head comparisons and popular alternatives - for example, whether to choose an SUV versus a minivan - that will narrow down your options and steer you to look at certain dealerships over others.

The guides are not particularly biased towards one manufacturer versus another, which gives consumers the chance to compare similar vehicles on an even playing field. For example, if you are in the market for a compact car, one guide merely lists the 2014 models with links to descriptions of the vehicle's features, pricing and owner reviews. If you want to know the best of the best, however, they also offer guides of the top 10 vehicles at a certain price point. For example, the KBB "coolest car" under $25,000 is the 2013 Mazda Miata MX-5, whereas the best sedan under $25,000 is the 2014 Honda Accord.

For first-time buyers of new cars especially, these segmented guides will help identify the ideal car for the future. A new car can be a big investment, especially after thinking about additional costs such as car insurance. The stress of so many choices associated with such a large and important purpose will definitely be eased with the help of these guides, which narrow down the latest vehicle models on the market. When you're investing in something as important as your new vehicle, take the time to choose the best possible fit for your budget and lifestyle, so you can enjoy it for years to come.
