Why other people will be jealous of your small car on the Sunshine Coast!

While small engines generally do perform more economically, there are heaps of added bonuses to being a small car owner on the Sunshine Coast. If you are thinking about buying a small car on the Sunshine Coast- here are some reasons why others will be envoius of you and why your wallet will love you!

Fuel economy in small cars on the Sunshine Coast

This is the top reason. More bang for your buck. Cars with smaller engines use less fuel. As petrol prices keep going up small-engine cars are popular for the fuel economy they provide compared to larger-engine vehicles. Who wants to pay less at the petrol station? Everyone, that’s who. So if you are doing short trips like Buderim to Buddina or big trips from Caloundra South to the top of the Sunshine Coast, a small car like a Corolla will keep your wallet fat! 

Maintenance Costs on small cars at Sunshine Toyota

Owners of small cars save when it comes to servicing. Compared to a large-engine vehicle, a Corolla needs

  • Less oil
  • Fewer spark plugs
  • Smaller air filters
  • Less petrol

This means less maintenance and therefore less cost. Yes! Smaller engines than run more efficiently also produce less carbon residue internally in the engine, what does that mean? Less services that require induction cleaning. This all adds up to paying less for serving your small car on the Sunshine Coast.

Lower parts replacement costs for small cars on the Sunshine Coast

Cars with smaller engines generally cost less than larger-engine vehicles when it comes to replacing the parts. For example, a big V-8 engine has two valve cover gaskets and two cylinder head gaskets with a large intake manifold between the two cylinder heads. A four-cylinder engine has only one valve cover gasket and one cylinder head gasket and only a small intake manifold. Small engines don’t need dual exhaust this alone reduces your repair and replacement costs! At Sunshine Toyota on the Sunshine Coast, we have a dedicated Parts Department, so you don’t have to worry about this technical stuff- but isn’t it nice to know you are paying less than other people!

Small cars = lower emissions. Now that is good for the Sunshine Coast!

Another advantage of the lower fuel economy in small cars is the reduction in Greenhouse Gas emissions. If you care about the environment and are a conscious “green shopper” you will appreciate the benefits to the Ozone Layer. A Corolla leaves a much smaller environmental footprint than many of the big vehicles driving around the Sunshine Coast.

Owning a small car on the Sunshine Coast costs you less. Winning!

Your insurance prices will be a lot lower if you are the owner of a small car on the Sunshine Coast such as a Yaris. Tax incentives also exist for low-emission vehicles.
