5 reasons why you should swap your car for a golf buggy
Because your daily driver is just too common.
Lightweight, direct steering, short wheelbase and great fun. Golf buggies are almost everything a Mini Cooper wishes it was.
Here are five (semi) solid reasons why you should consider swapping your car for one today...
1. You'll have better adventures
With the right tyres and kit, the average golf buggy doubles up as the perfect off-road, adventure vehicle.
Unlike an SUV, the golf buggy can be used to explore inaccessible places across different terrains without attracting a lot of attention or digging up the dirt beneath it. As an added bonus, you won't even feel bad about thrashing it around.
This could be you parked on the beach.
2. You'll have more money
A new buggy costs a damn lot less than a new car and has lower maintenance and fuel/charging costs.
Ok, that is in part because it can't go over 30mph and has around 4 horsepower, but low costs remain a solid argument in this difficult economic climate. Unless you live in Hong Kong, in which case a buggy costs more than a Ferrari. Sorry.
3. You'll have the perfect summer vehicle
Think that a convertible is the best summer car? Think again.
Golf buggies allow you to embrace the elements without the need to re-affix a soft top at the slightest drop of rain or deal with the leg-room issues associated with convertibles. They're also less likely to be dubbed as a 'hairdressers car'.
4. You'll be helping the planet
If you fancy going electric but hate the garish styling and boredom associated with the average electric car, a battery powered buggy may be the perfect option for you.
A solid EV of choice, buggies are more fun, more affordable and bound to attract more attention than a Tesla. They also offer more storage and passenger space than a Renault Twizy so you can still road trip with friends or take out that special person in your life. Just look at this happy couple... I've had a date in an Audi A4 and didn't look as comfortable as her!
This could be you and your date.
5. You'll be happier
Have you ever seen somebody frown whilst driving a buggy? Didn't think so. Golf buggies deliver more smiles with every mile and that is a fact!
