How to Shop for a Car the Fits Your Location

 Part 1: The City Dweller


While exciting, living in a major or even minor metropolis like downtown Frederick for example requires certain considerations when you’re shopping for a new vehicle. Congested roadways, swiftly moving traffic patterns, and the scramble for limited parking are all hallmarks the downtown dweller knows all too well.


So what features are most important to have in your new vehicle if you live in a city? 

Advanced Safety Features

Picking a vehicle with high safety marks will serve you well in the city. Accidents happen everywhere, but are even more common in congested urban centers. Picks like our 2016 Hyundai Elantra Value Edition can offer you real peace of mind, as it ranks among the safest brand of vehicles on the road today.


Parking Assist

This ain’t the suburbs. If you live in a city, you may parallel park on the daily, both at work and at home. And let’s face it, street parking is perhaps the most intimidating of all parking--requiring skill, confidence and calm under pressure. Gone are the days however, when you have to face this feat alone. Many newer car models come equipped with parking assist features such as a rearview back-up camera. One such option is our 2017 Chevrolet Equinox LT. Let the vehicle work for you when you’re backing in and alert you when you’ve come a bit too close for comfort to another vehicle.


Blind Spot Detection 

We hesitate to use the word "aggressive." But one must be assertive when driving in a the city. Getting to your destination often requires switching lanes and passing many times over. And hazards abound in tight city roadways, like traffic entering from alleys, cyclists sharing the road, pedestrians walking into the street and the stray open car door here and there. Finding a vehicle like our 2015 Cadillac Escalade Luxury is a huge help for the city driving. This vehicle offers blind spot detection which alerts you when an unseen object has entered your blind spot, allowing you to assess when it’s safest to make your move, without ruining anyone’s day.


A Technology Package

You may not think all the bells and whistles matter too much. But purchasing a vehicles that’s outfitted with tech like a Wi-Fi hotspot, bluetooth connection, satellite radio and premium navigation can be a literal lifesaver and timesaver. Many of these option can be found in vehicles like our 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee High Altitude. Enjoy the opportunities to stay both entertained and informed as you can access your podcasts and music easily and tap into your navigation system maps to get you where you need to be without missing a beat.
