Buying a car has evolved over the years, much like the car industry itself. From the first cars being introduced in the 19th century, to the modernised cars of today, there have been elaborate changes in the way cars have been produced and sold to consumers.
For several years, we visit dealerships and rely in face-to-face interaction when buying a vehicle, however, with the online world increasing, we could see a new way of buying our next car. So, what does the future of buying a car hold for us?
According to Think with Google, 92% of car buyers research online before they purchase a vehicle. On top of this, two thirds stated they would buy a car without test-driving it if they were offered a 360° video ‘tour’ of the vehicle.
With this information available online, as well as photos and videos of the vehicle, less people are going to dealerships for communication or a test drive, and instead opting for the internet.
With this, research suggests car buying is rapidly going digital, and it seems likely that an increasing number of customers will commit to a new car before ever seeing it in person.
Car Finance Options
Throughout recent years, an increasing number of car buying customers are choosing the option to buy a car on finance instead of paying in full from the moment of purchase.
With the increase in internet research, car buyers have more opportunity and availability to find a car finance company offering the right deal for them, while the flexibility offered by cheap car finance deals enables drivers are able afford a better and more reliable car without the stress of a large, upfront cash payment.
