Best Vehicles For Commuters

For some people commuting to and from work is enjoyable, because you can revel in the silence and decompress. Other commutes can be a nightmare of traffic. The vehicle you drive during your commute can play a big part in how you feel.

At Mohawk Ford, we have an inventory full of new and used vehicles. You can find the commuter vehicle that will make your time spent behind the wheel as stress-free as possible.

When choosing a commuter vehicle, there are a few things to consider:

  • Engine Type: Do you need a gas engine, or is a hybrid or full electric a better option?
  • Fuel Mileage: The farther your commute is, the more money you will spend on gas. Look for a vehicle that has a lower MPG to help save yourself money.
  • Comfort: What is going to make your commute the most comfortable? Consider what is important to you: sound systems, leather seats, entertainment features.
  • Safety Features: New cars come with some safety features, but you can opt to go for more. If you find that you get drowsy driving in the mornings, the Lane Keeping System can prevent you from drifting over the lane. When traffic is stop-and-go, emergency brake assist can help keep you from having an accident.
