There is no better way to get a good look at a vehicle than by taking it for a test drive, though it is also important that you pay close attention to a number of factors when you do so. To get the most out of your next test drive, be sure to consider each of the following elements.

  • Accessibility – How easy is it to get in and out of the vehicle?
  • Visibility – Can you clearly see the road as well as all of the important displays?
  • Acceleration – How quickly does the vehicle accelerate?
  • Braking – How responsive are the brakes?
  • Space – Is there plenty of room for everyone and everything that you will want the vehicle to hold?
  • Comfort – How comfortable are the seats? How smooth is the ride?
  • Sound – How noisy or quiet is the vehicle? (Be sure to test this at both low and high speeds) Can you hear any strange noises or worrying sounds?
  • Transmission – How smoothly does the vehicle change gears?
  • Controls – How well does the heater, air conditioning, lights, wipers, sunroof and all the other controls work?
