3-point checklist when test-driving a car
TouchBefore you part ways with your cash, it’s vital to get a feel for the interior of a vehicle. Make sure you find the action satisfying. Getting familiar with the weight of steering and the pedals is what makes the test-drive a key part of buying a new car or fleet.
VisibilityOnce settled into the driver’s seat, it’s important to check your visibility against the dimensions of the car. Can you check over your shoulder into your blind spot, and through the rear windscreen?
BalanceTest-driving is also crucial in assessing the balance of the car and whether it fits your driving style. Do you prefer softer suspension for a smoother rider, or the strong handling of firm suspension?
4-Day Test Drive ProgrammeSEAT is inviting business customers to take four-day test drives on its entire business range. The 4-Day Test Drive Programme gives company car drivers the chance to enjoy the technology of SEAT’s latest cars as they undertake work and leisure activities. Using a vehicle for a meaningful period of time enables fleet owners to gain a comprehensive understanding of its individual benefits. The offer means test drives of up to four days are available via SEAT UK for any model. Commenting on SEAT’s four-day test drives, Peter McDonald, Head of Fleet and Business Sales at SEAT UK, said it was a “no brainer” for the manufacturer to offer the service to business customers. “Test drives are one of the most important stages in choosing a new car, particularly for fleets,” he said. “Business customers need to be certain they’re making the right decision, and we’re happy to give them the time to make sure individual needs are met.” Book your 4-day test drive if you are a fleet owner or company car driver and a SEAT representative will contact you. Alternatively, call 0800 464 0405 to provide your details.
