10 Steps to Finding the Right Car for You

Step 4. Consider Other Cars in the Class


Have your mind — or heart — set on a specific car? Many shoppers do. But in today's ever-changing marketplace, there are always new cars hitting the showroom, and one that you've never even considered could be right for you. At Edmunds.com, you can easily research and compare similar cars to find the one that truly fits you best.

If you already have a car in mind, you should still review other comparable vehicles in the same class to make sure you haven't overlooked an even better choice. You can do this by choosing the same vehicle type, as listed in our Car Finder tool, and setting the parameters that are important to you. Once you settle on a worthy prospect, you can easily check for detailed information on pricing, specifications (such as for the 2015 Ford Fiesta), features and road tests. You can also compare vehicles you chose to more easily contrast the car's features and specifications. If, on the other hand, you have no idea where to begin, you can consult the Best Cars section of our site. The New Car Buying Guides are handy here, too.
