For some people, cars are just a means of getting from A to B. But for others, cars are more than just convenient methods of transportation.

Millions of people around the world own and drive cars and they do so for many different reasons. What is it about cars that motorists like the most? In today’s article, I offer some insight into this intriguing topic.

It might surprise you to learn that the bulk of people that have cars own them for quite different reasons. Then again, it might not. In any case, here is what people like the most about their cars!



Did you know that the main reason a lot of people own their cars is because they like how they look? In today’s modern world, cars have fast become a fashion statement as well as a method of convenient transport.

Some people want to get seen wearing trendy, fashionable clothes. The smartphones that they use have to be the latest popular models. And the cars they drive have to look stylish, sleek and fresh.


Most cars built today have a plethora of features. They serve one purpose: to make our life on the road as comfortable as possible.

For instance, climate control ensures the temperature inside our cars is just right. Cruise control is useful for long journeys when we drive on motorways and highways at a set speed.

There are plenty of refinement features found in today’s cars; I could spend all day listing them! But they are just one of the many reasons why people enjoy driving their cars.



Is there petrol coursing through your veins? If so, you will doubtless want to own a car with a beefy engine under the hood!

Performance is top of the list of reasons for car buyers. For me, I love the sound of a V6 or V8 engine, For others, that unmistakable sound of a turbo spooling up does it for them. Non “car people” won’t understand the obsession with engine power.

But trust me, if you love the thrill and exhilaration of driving a fast car, you will want to make sure it’s got a powerful engine!

Fuel economy

At the moment, I am looking for a new Audi to buy. I was browsing the Autohouse Audi site the other day, and I couldn’t help but notice that a lot of cars on offer are quite good on fuel!

It’s not much of a surprise, but most people love their cars because they offer excellent fuel economy. Not only do they save money on fuel, but their car taxes are lower as well. In the United Kingdom, for example, cars made after 2001 get taxed according to their engine emissions.

In general, cars that offer high gas mileage are usually the ones that pollute the environment the least. That’s good news if you want to be an eco-friendly motorist, and it’s also good news for your wallet!
