NEW YEAR, NEW ME: WHAT YOUR CAR SAYS ABOUT YOU
We all do it. Without even realising. We make assumptions about people based on the cars they drive. The snob, the risk taker, the super mommy, the tough guy. But do people buy the specific car because they are something, or because they aspire to be something? And why do we have these connotations with cars? Often it’s because of the way they are marketed.
But before we dig too deep, rather ask yourself what does your car say about you? It is, after all, a highly personal affair. And it’s not really about what other people think about you and your car anyway; it’s about how you feel about your car and how your car makes you feel.
So it’s a new year, and most of us have a couple of new years resolutions or at least some goals for the year. Even if it’s something simple like: ‘I’m going to keep my car tidy and clean.’ There is nothing worse than getting into a messy, dirty car and few things better than getting into your car when it’s clean and fresh. It makes you feel like you can take on the world!
Maybe you’ve got bigger ambitions this year. Maybe you want to change your ride to something that better suits your personality, lifestyle or even budget.
If you’re zipping around in a big city with limited parking space, you definitely don’t want to be driving an enormous vehicle with al sorts of maneuvering challenges. No, if you’re bravely taking on the concrete jungle, you want something sleek and comfortable. Something packed with advanced, intuitive technology and state-of-the-art connected services. Then something like the dynamic all-new Nissan Qashqai might just be the perfect choice for you.
However, if your work or life will be taking you on broader, steeper or rougher roads this year, then you’d want something more robust. You would be looking for something stylish, but also hard working and trustworthy no matter what the challenge. Well, you’re in luck. This is the year that the long-awaited, updated Nissan Navara double cab is launched. So this might just be the year you purchase your dream bakkie!
Maybe you decided to travel more this year and explore our beautiful country. Then the obvious choice should be the Nissan X-trail. It is packed with safety features like active engine braking, advanced air bag system, blind spot warning and Lane departure warning on selected models. Thanks to the 3rd row seats in the 7 seater model, there’s space for the whole family and spinal support in the front seats will make the long road exceptionally comfortable. Travel in style while counting the stars through the power panoramic sunroof.
So whether you’re a city slicker, an outdoor type, or an exploring traveler at heart, you’ll be sure to find the perfect match to follow your dreams this year at your local Nissan dealer.
