By Emily Estep

To err is human. That's why it's essential that you have a powerful vacuum that can clean up any mess you make in your car, big or small. Depending on the type of car owner you are, you'll have different needs in your car vacuum. But, the best car vacuums on the market will be able to reach into all the nooks and crannies of your vehicle, with a lightweight and easy-to-maneuver design.

If you're looking for a car vacuum, the first thing you should consider is what you'll be using it for. There are some wet-dry car vacuums that are designed to clean up both dry debris and liquids, which could come in handy if you deal with a lot of pet spills or live in a region with a lot of snow.

And some vacuums are better suited to on-the-go use than others. For large-scale, occasional cleans, you may want a serious machine that you can store in a closet. But if you're hoping to clean up a little mess here or a small spill there, you'll probably want something that you can comfortably store in your vehicle without weighing it down.

Whether you're looking for a wet-dry option or a lightweight and easy-to-store vacuum, you'll be sure to find the vacuum you need on this list. With a variety of vacuums perfect for specific needs, budgets and cars, here are the best car vacuums on the market.
