Here's Why you Should Upgrade your Car in 2014

The start of 2014 brings mixed news for the car industry around the world. Although car usage is more than looking strong, the automotive industry in Australia is shaky, and with the new that Holden is to leave in 2017, it leaves a lot of people asking, ‘where next?’

On a personal level however, the start of the New Year is a great way to start thinking about a new car. Been promising yourself the latest model of the car you’ve already got? Thinking about your finances and getting bored of shelling out on a rust bucket? Worry no more, here at Private Fleet we look at some reasons why 2014 should definitely be the year you upgrade your car.

You Deserve It

There’s something nice about buying a new car that feels like you’ve earnt it. That new car smell, the fact it’s your pride & joy and nobody can touch it or clean it but you. It’s also, fundamentally, a treat. There’s no point patching together ancient cars and you need to ride around in something you can enjoy.


Nobody can argue with the fact that new cars are safer than old ones. Not long ago, even having a minor crash meant that you were dicing with death, but statistics show now that you’ve got a far greater chance of surviving – especially in more modern and technology advanced cars. The world of safety in the automotive industry has become so much more advanced; and by purchasing a newer car you are making the most of this.

You Get More for Your Money

Cars companies at the moment are falling over themselves to pack more technology and gadgets into their cars than ever before. It means that in 2014, what you’re paying for is a great car, but also an excellent entertainment and navigation system, an enjoyable and comfortable place to sit and a very safe and technologically advanced

Warranty and Offers

Buying a new car has certain assurances, and manufacturers at the moment need to be able to sweeten the deal with consumers by offering extended warranties and good finance packages. You can never underestimate the importance of having certain assurances when buying a new car – if there are any faults you’ll be able to get them fixed for free and have peace of mind when you first take it out.

Can Be Delivered to Your Specification

No more trawling the listings for something that matches your dream. When you buy a new car you’re able to pick what you want and know you’ll be able to get it. Many car manufacturers offer a huge amount of options – and we have seen the issue of customisation really come to the fore in the last couple of years. The real boom in online shopping has helped with this, but even buying your car through more conventional means, you’re able to pick exactly what you want down to the finest details.
