As a wedding planner, the demands placed on your time are going to be significant, even if you’re only dealing with one or two couples. You need to be a master juggler when it comes to your time and your scheduling, and that means that you’re going to need a very reliable used car. You’ll probably also want one that delivers good gas mileage, and allows you a bit of room to stow materials and supplies.
With those considerations in mind, we evaluated several small used cars, and we have settled on the Mazda3, Chevrolet Cruze, Honda Fit, Honda Civic and Kia Rio as the best cars for wedding planners.
Mazda3: You’ll appreciate the Mazda 3’s great gas mileage, delivering 25 mpg with city driving and 33 mpg on the highway. This is also a fast, fun car to drive, and it handles admirably.
Chevrolet Cruze: With the Chevy Cruze, you can expect 22 mpg in the city and 35 mpg on the highway. Since you’ll be spending a lot of time in your car, you’ll also appreciate the remarkably comfortable ride and the convenient, stylish interior.
Honda Fit: In terms of gas mileage, there is no difference at all between the Honda Fit and the Chevy Cruze. However, if you use your vehicle as a family car as well as a work vehicle, you’ll appreciate the extra cargo room and passenger space you get with the Fit.
Honda Civic: The Civic does better than either the Cruze or the Fit when it comes to gas mileage. You can expect 28 mpg with city driving, and 35 mpg when you hit the highway. It’s also a good-looking, comfortable car, and you’ll enjoy driving it.
Kia Rio: The Rio is another great choice when it comes to gas mileage, with 28 mpg for city driving and 36 mpg on the open road. The interior is attractive with a variety of features, and you’ll also get a smooth ride.
Wedding planners are on the road a lot, going from errand to errand. That means they need a vehicle that is comfortable, has an attractive interior, and perhaps most importantly, offers great gas mileage. Any of the five used vehicles listed above should please even the most discriminating wedding planner.
