Vehicle Categories

At a loss where to start shopping for a new vehicle?  Have a look at the following categories we’ve created.  We’ve kept them quite broad, because there are any number of vehicles that could qualify to appear in multiple categories. This is not an exhaustive list of vehicles available on the market and you may see other sites categorizing these vehicles differently. These are Automobl vehicle categories created by our team to try to make it easier for you to narrow down the type of vehicle you may be interested in purchasing. Once you have it narrowed down, do an Automobl Value Comparison to help decide whether these vehicles are right for you.
