Philip Huang, male, 31, real estate developer
I have a 2.4L Audi A6 and a 3.5L Infiniti FX35.
My two cars are for different purposes, with the A6 for formal business occasions and the Infiniti for my personal pursuit of driving pleasure.
For my next vehicle I have a very clear goal - the Audi Q7 3.6 FSI. My budget is around 1 million yuan.
My requirements for vehicles change with the age. In the past I cared a great deal about power. Now I have my own family and welcoming our new baby, so passenger comfort and space become new considerations.
For example, the trunk compartment should be big enough to carry baby's items and the interior roomy enough for a whole family.
I expect the vehicle can drive steady and smooth even at a speed of 120 km/h on an expressway.
Duan Jidong, male, 33, assistant to the general manager at a logistics company
I have a 1.6-liter Volkswagen Jetta.
I plan to change for a new car in 2011, which will cost 200,000 to 300,000 yuan. I prefer German or Japanese brands, for example, Volkswagen, Toyota or Honda.
Style, driving pleasure, fuel saving are my considerations.
Wang Hao, male, 34, business development director at a European cement company
Now I have a Volkswagen Polo 1.4 AT and I'd like to buy a new car in one or two years because of the increasing size of my family.
The price should be 200,000 to 250,000 yuan. It might be a European brand.
I prefer vehicles that can meet my demands both in sport and business. The vehicle should also be fuel-efficient, have good power and good drivability.
Li Qing, female, 30, media staff
I have an Audi A4, 1.8 T.
I plan to buy a new one in three years. I feel a little tired of ordinary cars and become more interested in the SUV.
The budget should be around 400,000 yuan.
Among many concerns for car, safety comes first, of course. In addition, it should have a stylish interior and fashionable in exterior appearance.

I would pay 180,000 to 220,000 yuan for a new car.
I care most about safety and fuel saving in selecting a car. Environmentally friendly and good-looking vehicles are also my taste.
