The festive season is a very special time for many of us. It’s a time to celebrate new beginnings in our lives with our family and close friends.
For Akshay Kulkarni, a software engineer in Pune, the festive season became a time to welcome a new member to his family. With a growing family, it also was the opportune moment to bring home a car that would keep his family mobile.
It is often said that big changes in life start with small steps. For Akshay and his wife, welcoming a newborn baby to their family was a very joyous occasion to start their family’s festive celebrations. Welcoming a newborn was just the start of their festivities.
“As we embark on this new chapter in our life, we wanted to be able to drive our own journey.”
Both Akshay and his wife used to earlier rely on using cabs to move around the city due to the convenience. However, travelling in cabs with a newborn would no longer be convenient or safe in the new normal. With a newborn in the family, Akshay says “it was time to finally add the “Baby on Board” sticker to our own car.”
Adding the “Car” in Family Car
Akshay’s requirements for a family car were straightforward. Keeping in mind Pune’s regularly congested roads, Akshay was interested in finding a compact car that provided good mileage and would be easy to maintain. A no-frills family hatchback loaded with features would be the ideal car for Akshay’s new family.
“Safety was the primary requirement for my family car and Spinny ensured all my needs were met in the choices I was provided.
Within his budget, buying a new car would mean compromising on certain safety features and so, Akshay turned to Spinny to find a certified used car with the right combination of features, performance and value. After test driving several options, Akshay and his wife settled on a Spinny Assured Hyundai Grand i10 Asta to be their family car.
“Bringing home this car gave us a second moment for celebration and our baby enjoys the early morning drives we’ve started going on,” Akshay muses about his first drives in his Spinny Assured car. He further adds that he’s looking forward to celebrate Car Joy by taking his family to their first family road trip to the nearby hill stations.
