Buying a vehicle for the first time may feel a little overwhelming with all the different options available and things to consider. You'll want to make sure your first vehicle fits both your lifestyle and budget. If you're a growing young family, you'll want to prioritize having enough space for your children, pets, and everything else they might need. Beyond that, you may need additional cargo space for shopping trips, traveling, or outdoor family activities. If you're a student headed to school in the fall, you'll want a vehicle that offers enough space for everything you need to bring along with you.

On the other hand, larger vehicles often come with a higher price tag and typically cost more to fill up at the gas pump. If you're someone who commutes in an urban area, smaller vehicles tend to be easier to manage where both city streets and parking are often tight. Hatchbacks and smaller crossovers, like the Ford EcoSport and Buick Encore make excellent options as they offer the advantages of higher fuel-efficiency and a smaller footprint, while offering a generous amount of cargo space. Compact, and mid-size sedans, such as the Toyota Corolla and Nissan Altima might not have quite the versatility of a hatchback or crossover, but they tend to be some of the most efficient gas-powered vehicles on the road, while offering considerable passenger and trunk space.

Lastly, you want to consider reputation and reliability.
