People who purchase a new vehicle during their thirties and forties often get accused of having a midlife crisis. However, that isn’t the case in most instances. People can just afford to spend more on a car at that stage in their lives. That is because they’ve settled down and started a family. Their jobs are probably going well, and they have more spare cash lying around than ever before. With that in mind, we wanted to take a look at some of the most popular brands for individuals in that situation. Of course, most of us are never going to afford an Aston Martin. Still, there are lots of other luxury models at more reasonable prices.
The German carmaker BMW has gone from strength to strength since the end of the second world war. The company has built a reputation for creating some of the most upmarket business vehicles of our generation. However, they also have a small fleet of sports cars that are perfect for anyone making a midlife purchase. Just take a look at the 4 Series models if you haven’t done so in the past. Sure, they’re expensive, but many people consider the purchase as an investment. The soft top versions of the M-Series are also common for people in that position.
The Japanese manufacturer Subaru has produced some of the coolest rally-type vehicles during the last twenty years. They also make many road models that are quick off the mark. A spokesperson from the Reynella Subaru car dealership recently said that older models are increasing in popularity. That is because cars designed by this company tend to stand the test of time. While the new releases compete with BMW when it comes to price, second-hand models are often more affordable. Best of all? Subaru cars make the loudest noise when revving the engine compared to any other brand on this list.
Mercedes-Benz is another luxury carmaker that releases sports models from time to time. Indeed, anyone considering that brand just needs to take a look at the recent SL-Class models online. They RRP for over $100,000 in Australia, so anyone who wants to get one will need some serious cash. However, in the grand scheme of things, that’s a pretty good price for a car with those specifications. Mercedes has also become somewhat of a status symbol in society. So, you’re guaranteed to turn heads whenever you stop at the traffic lights.
That’s all we have time for today. However, any model produced by the brands mentioned in this post is perfect for a midlife purchase. After putting so much time into buying a home and raising a family, you deserve a new toy. So, head down to local dealerships and see what you can find. Just make sure you pick up something with a brand name that will make you feel proud. Sure, Skoda makes some pretty good cars these days, but who wants to drive around with that badge on their vehicle? Not many people.
