Benefits Of Buying a Demo Car

Picture this: you walk into a dealership to buy your dream car. But with several options to choose from, how do you decide which one to go for? There are brand new models, second- hand models and even demo models that are used for test drives to attract potential customers. 

Gumtree underlines the benefits of purchasing a demo model that makes the most financial sense:

Advantages of purchasing a demo car:

  1. One of the biggest benefits of investing in a demo car is that you can get a great deal on cars that have been maintained and kept in excellent condition, especially as these are driven by potential customers.
  2. The mileage on a demo car is much lower than a second-hand vehicle of the same model. These demo cars are solely used for test drives or for employees to run errands.
  3. As mentioned, demo cars are in perfect working condition as they are used to attract sales for the dealership.
  4. Dealerships have records of all their demo models including who has driven them and for how many kilometres. Thus, as a potential buyer, you have the option to ask them for the vehicle history if you have any doubts.
  5. Demo cars spend a lot of time at the dealership and are usually the face of the model or brand. Thus, these are in pristine conditions – both aesthetically and under the boot.
  6. Dealerships usually use their best cars, with all the bells and whistles, as demo cars. So, if you cannot afford a particular model, chances are you will find the same (with all the same features) at a much lower price if it is a demo car.
