The popular saying, ‘cut your coat according to your size, does not only make sense in monetary terms but it can be applied to many things we humans do in this life. We are all attracted to luxury things, cars that speak affluence, clothes that scream money, houses that shine luxury, but all fingers are not equal. The same rule of thumb applies to cars. There are some cars that are beautiful to behold, and at an instant, you’d wish to have them in your garage, but is it efficient to use?

Efficiency does not only speak in terms of maintenance or how fast the car is, efficiency also cuts across how fuel-efficient the car is. If you are not new to Nigeria, you must already be accustomed to how ‘well-kept’ Nigerian roads are. The roads in Nigeria can turn anyone into a fighter, and you are not the owner of your time once you step out of your house, because traffic will humble you, especially in Lagos.

Again, if you are not new to Nigeria, I will ask, what is the point of buying a car that cannot help conserve fuel? Fuel is very essential because except is a Tesla, the car will stop on the road once it has run out of fuel. And many times, people in Nigeria tend to go for fine cars instead of buying cars that can help conserve not only fuel but their money.
