At Fox Subaru in Auburn, New York, we sell a wide range of vehicles with different sizes, capabilities, features, and price points. How do you decide which one is the best fit for your needs, lifestyle, and income level? A good place to start is by answering these three questions.

What Features Do You Need?

When it comes to choosing a vehicle at Fox Subaru, your needs should come first - the absolute must-have essentials for your family. 

For example, if you need a big SUV with plenty of seating for all of your children, the three-row Subaru Ascent or two-row Subaru Outback can provide that. But if fuel-efficiency matters more than space or power, you'll enjoy the fuel-sipping Impreza compact car, which is the most economic model in the entire Subaru lineup. 

Other important needs to consider are towing capabilities, cargo capacity, and whether the vehicle is small enough to fit in your garage or the parking lot at work. If AWD for snowy Auburn winters is one of your must-haves, you're in luck. Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive comes standard on nearly every Subaru model - even the low-priced Impreza sedan.

What Features Do You Want?

After you determine what your true vehicle needs are, you can start thinking about your wants-the elements that you crave but aren't necessary for your daily commutes or family carpools. 

For some drivers, that desire is trendy style and exciting performance. If thrilling performance is something you've always wanted, take an afternoon test-driving the 268-horsepower Subaru WRX sports car. 

Want the option to go off-road every now and then at camping spots in beautiful New York? Even smaller Subaru SUVs like the Crosstrek and Forester boast 8.7 inches of ground clearance for rough terrain.  

If you're hoping for the latest advanced safety and infotainment features, most Subaru models come standard with EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology and SUBARU STARLINK® Multimedia, so you won't miss out even if you buy an entry-level vehicle.

What Features Can You Afford?

As you're pondering your wants and needs, it's also vital to think about how much of a monthly payment you can afford. Checking your credit score and applying for financing at Fox Subaru are great ways to start figuring out your budget. If you can't afford a model that matches your needs and wants, consider a lease, which could save you money over a purchase. Pre-owned Subaru vehicles are a solid option, too, allowing you to pay less and afford a better-equipped model. 

Answering these questions should give you a rough idea of the vehicle or vehicles that are right for you. Here at Fox Subaru, our sales staff will be happy to set you up with test drives of your top models, answer your questions, and help you drive home in the Subaru you're looking for..
