What safety acronyms do you get included v. budgets dollar?
Dabas blog post; Mid-September 2018.
Hello Readers, we hope your week has been going well. Over the last few months we have often re-visited the modern vehicle’s safety acronyms topic, whilst having a general-in-nature look at the safety features available in 2018’s modern vehicle brands’ segments and levels/variants; de-mystifying the acronyms and giving a very general summary of how they work: what they mean and do.
At DABAS we realise that everyone’s personal car-buying budget and needs are different, but a common emerging question asked by most customers is: what modern safety acronym inclusions can l get for my budget? – so in this DABAS blog we will have a general-in-nature summarised snapshot look at what’s included in – just a few – of the many 2018 popular brand-new car choices, within varying budgets, including price brackets starting from $14,190 through to $44,500 (plus ORCs).
We hope you find this an interesting read, providing some useful general information to help you on your car-buying journey.
