Describe a vehicle that you would like to buy

You should say:

  • what type of vehicle it would be
  • why you like it
  • for what purposes you will use this vehicle

and explain why you want to buy this vehicle.


Model Answer 1:

Even a few years ago, I would think that buying a vehicle would be considered a luxury. But, today, I don’t think like that anymore after seeing how a car can help us in order to make our life easy. In fact, I am even planning to buy a car in future.

Anyway, the car, I wish to buy in the future, which is “Honda Pilot”. This is a luxurious sport utility vehicle, or SUV, with an optional but easily accessible third-row seat, which can accommodate up to 8 people. It is a standard 280 horsepower 3.5-liter i-VTEC V-6 engine and also has Multi-angle rearview camera with guidelines. I would prefer my car to be a dark blue colour, with leather seats and champagne colour interior, as well as to have a GPS navigation system. One of the features of this SUV, that really attracts me, is its optional “Panoramic Roof”, which allows all passengers to enjoy views of the sky even when they are sitting at the very back of the car. I also like the fact that Rear-seat passengers in this car can watch the miles fly while enjoying its high-definition entertainment via the available Blue-ray Rear Entertainment System. I really like this SUV because it runs so smoothly without making any noise at all.

Anyway, I want to buy this great looking SUV for the purpose of taking me and my whole family to a different place at ease without having to worry about waiting for public transportation. I would also like to buy the vehicle because it would help me to go to my job easily and quickly. Besides, I want to buy it also because it would help me save a lot of money when travelling a long distance, especially, when travelling together with 7/8 persons. After all, it would cost a lot more money to buy the train, bus or flight tickets for 7/8 persons. Finally, I want to buy this car because it would elevate my image as a person and it has all the necessary safety and comfort features for a long trip.


Sample Answer 2:

I do not own a car and have been planning to purchase a personal car for the last 1 year. I have planned to purchase a car that would facilities me and my family members to go to different places as an alternative to public transportation.

Currently, we use public transportations and because of that, we can’t plan our schedule in a flexible way. We have to heavily depend on the schedules of the public transportations and that kills lots of time. Waiting in a long queue for the bus is very inconvenient and we often feel the need for a personal car. I guess owning a personal car would give us lots of flexibilities and we would be able to go together more frequently in our free time. We often cancel attending programs arranged by relatives and friends because of the heavy traffic jam on the road. A personal car would allow us to avoid busy roads and attend more social programs.

I often get late for important meeting and schedules because of my dependency on the public car. Furthermore, in a personal car, I would be able to spend time the way I like and that would be relaxing while being in a public car is sometimes very exhausting.

Sometimes the shopping I do becomes cumbersome to carry on in public transportation and my car would allow me to easily carry them home. We have 2-3 kids in our home and we feel unsafe to take them with us in public transportation. A personal car would ensure the safety for the kids as well on the street.
