Needs and wants
After splashing out on the big day, and possibly not long after mortgaging your first home together, you’ll want a sophisticated car within a reasonable budget. You’ll be looking for something practical to go to the office, but also pleasurable for longer drives on romantic weekends away.
Suggested car: Renault Megane Coupé
The Megane Coupé has a glossy exterior and an elegant leather interior – perfect for starting your new life together in style. The reversing camera and rain and light sensors will help to make your day-to-day lives a little bit easier. It’s also equipped with a high quality navigation system and state of the art sound system for when you and your spouse decide to go on a spontaneous road trip.
