Volkswagen has rapidly improved its SUV game in recent years, rolling out the Atlas, Atlas Cross Sport, and redesigned Tiguan in the sizes, shapes, and flavors that Americans prefer. Soon, the 2022 Volkswagen Taos joins the roster, a small SUV about the size of a Kia Seltos – and the original Tiguan. Turbocharged power, a roomy interior, and classic VW driving dynamics are hallmarks of the new 2022 Taos.
Once you find the car you want, you'll want to move fast so it isn't sold out from under you. So it's a good idea to get your financing set up before you begin searching for your car. If you're paying cash, there is little to do except make sure you have the funds available to withdraw cash or get a cashier's check when it's time to do the deal. If you're paying all cash for a used car from a private party, consider doing the deal in a public place.
Volvo previously used Polestar to define its performance-tuned vehicles. That remains true today (Polestar Engineered), but now it is also a stand-alone brand for the automaker’s high-end electric vehicles. The Polestar 2 is a 5-door fastback that sits high off the ground like an SUV and can travel up to 233 miles on a single charge. You can order one today.
KNOW WHAT YOU ARE SIGNING. Carefully scrutinize every document before you sign, especially the retail installment contract. NEVER let someone �tell� you what the contract says. Examine and understand the sales price, interest rates, payments, trade-in values, and pay-offs. If you are leasing, or financing with a balloon payment at the end, make sure you are aware of your responsibilities. NEVER sign a blank form, or one with blank spaces in it. Make sure that you understand every amount listed, and that it agrees with the �deal� that you made.
What is a new car model? New car models wear nameplates that either didn’t exist before or are resurrected from the past. Examples among 2021 model-year vehicles include the Kia Seltos, a new nameplate, and the Ford Bronco, a resurrected nameplate. Sometimes, a new model is based on an existing vehicle but has a dramatically different mission, such as the new Ram 1500 TRX or the Volvo XC40 Recharge P8.
There's a big safety benefit to buying the newest car you can afford. When you buy a new car, you're ensuring you're getting a car that's up to the most recent safety standards in both crash testing and in safety technology. A new car compared to a used car from even five years ago can have big safety advantages with things like more airbags, a more rigid construction, and more advanced technology like a backup camera which is now mandatory on every new car sold in the U.S.
