What new car should I buy?

Close

The vehicle you purchase depends largely on your needs. If you need a city car, a small hatchback such as a Fiat 500 or Peugeot 208 may be suitable. Family vehicles include saloons, estates and SUVs such as those in the Jeep range, and typically provide more space for passengers and luggage, while sports cars, like the Mazda MX-5 and BMW Z4 are for those looking for two-seater fun. Contact your local Snows dealership for help with finding the perfect new car.

Which car brand is the best?

Close

The best car brand for you depends on your needs and preferences. Look out for award-winning models, such as the Citroën C3 Aircross, which won Carbuyer’s Best Small SUV for 2019 or the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio, which scooped What Car?’s Best Performance Car for 2019. Also consider reliability – Suzuki and Lexus, for example, have an excellent reliability record and consistently perform well in surveys.

What new car has the best warranty?

Close

Kia is renowned for its seven-year/100,000-mile warranty, which is one of the best on the market. Also impressive is the Toyota warranty, which covers new cars for five years or 100,000 miles.

Can a new car battery improve performance?

Close

A new battery is sure to make your car’s electronic systems behave better, and improve ignition times, but it is unlikely to directly affect the mechanical performance of the car. If you think you need a new battery or some checks on your vehicle, contact our aftersales department today to make an appointment.

What new car can I afford?

Close

You might be surprised to learn that you can afford a bigger or higher spec new car than you anticipated.

What is the best time to buy a new car?

Close

The best time to buy depends on a range of factors. February and August – before the plate change – are typically good months in which to buy new cars, and seasonal promotions can help you save money too. Check our offers pages to see what deals we’re currently running.

When does a new car need an MOT?

Close

Vehicles of three years or more require an MOT test every year, to ensure they comply with safety and roadworthiness regulations.

Are new cars taxed?

Close

The system for taxing cars was changed in 2017, with further modifications coming into effect in 2018. As of March 2019, the tax you pay in the first year of ownership depends on the vehicle’s CO2 emissions. This rate is higher for diesels than petrol models. Thereafter, you pay a flat rate of £140 a year, regardless of the fuel type.

Are new cars cheaper to insure?

Close

The value of a vehicle affects the insurance premium you’ll have to pay, but other factors apply too, such as the security devices and safety mechanisms installed on the car. Newer models often have technology that makes them harder to steal and safer to drive, which can bring the cost down compared to older vehicles.
