Even though we love all things auto here at Tipton Hyundai, we know that buying a new car can be stressful. Consider these tips to help you prepare, and contact our team in Brownville, Texas, if you have questions.
Before coming into the dealership, it’s important to know how much you want to spend. This could be how much cash you want to pay, how much of a loan you are ready for, or what your ideal monthly payment looks like. Don’t just throw a number out there either: look at your monthly finances and the bills you already pay to see what fits your needs.
Hyundai has SUVs for those who want optimal space and capabilities, sporty sedans, and efficient compact models. In terms of SUVs, there’s the three-row Palisade, which has seating for up to eight people, an available 291 horsepower, and optional AWD. The classic Santa Fe fits five and is one of the most popular SUVs on the market, while the Tucson is a modern, compact SUV. The new Kona is built to be sporty, and it has a truly unique exterior design, while the Venue is well-equipped for narrow city streets as well as the open road.
When you have a good handle on your ideal budget, you can also look at different purchasing options and determine which one you prefer. At the heart of all these choices is whether you want to buy or lease a new or used vehicle.
If you decide that a new car is right for you, you can choose between paying in cash, financing the vehicle, or leasing one. When used is the better way to go for your needs, you can consider a standard used car or a Certified Pre-Owned Vehicle. That means that it’s a used car with a limited amount of miles that then goes through an in-depth inspection process.
If you haven’t been car shopping in a while, you might not know all the models that are available to you. This is the time to peruse the Hyundai website and see the key features of favorites like the Hyundai Sonata, Elantra, and Santa Fe. When you know what’s for sale, you can decide which features are most important. You don’t need to make a model decision before you come see us at the dealership, but it can help to narrow down what you want to take a closer look at on your visit.
We love all Hyundai models here at Tipton Hyundai, but they all have their unique drive styles. Before you make a final decision, come see us at the dealership for a test drive. Maybe one model has a technology feature you didn’t know you needed until you see it in action, or maybe a difference in handling can help you decide between two crossovers on our lot.
When you’re ready for test drives, or if you have questions you’re not sure how to answer, we’re here for you at Tipton Hyundai in Brownsville, TX.
