Before you buy a new car, you need to carefully research the option packages available for the model you are interested. You can check vehicle options easily online with a number of reliable sites that all use the information registered with the Kelley Blue Book. The Kelley Blue Book is the industry standard source for reporting not only the vehicle options available, but also the fair market price of a car, new or used.

Step 1

Go to or and select the type of car you are interested in by clicking on the icon for it. Your choices will include: SUV, Sedan, Coupe, Hatchback and more.

Step 2

Enter your zip code on the next screen and click on the "OK" or "Submit" button.

Step 3

Select how you want to see your choices for models for your type of vehicle. You can select to see them grouped by price range, size, market segment or even select "All" to see all the models for your type.

Step 4

Scroll down the results list and click on the image of the vehicle you want to find out more about.

Step 5

On the left side of the screen, select "Price with Options." This will take you to another screen that will detail the option packages available for this model and how each options package will affect the price you pay for the vehicle.
