Check out the interior comfort 

Your BMW is going to be your daily driver, your business vehicle, or your vessel for weekend adventures for the family. It is essential that the interior is spacious and comfortable for the driver and the passengers. Get into and out of the car several times so you can check if it’s difficult to do that simple task. Adjust everything from the mirrors to seat and sit for a moment while evaluating just how comfortable the setup is. Remember that you will spend significant amounts of time in the vehicle for years to come. 

Look at the trunk 

Trunk space is always a selling point for any type of vehicle. If you have a family that is constantly traveling on the weekends or going on vacations and you need to haul everyone’s belongings, then it stands to reason that you will want to find a vehicle with good trunk space. Most people don’t bother to do this but remember that you’ll be putting things in the trunk. Is it big enough to fit your golf clubs, luggage, grocery bags, or whatever else you take along on a regular basis? Is the opening wide and low enough to make loading bigger items easier? Do the seats fold down, and how much additional space does that provide? 

Drive the car thoroughly

During your test drive in the BMW vehicle you are interested in, be sure to test drive it thoroughly. Don’t just take the vehicle off of the lot and drive it around the block. Take the BMW onto the highway and test out the acceleration and handling, then take it onto city streets to test out ho agile it is. Additionally, drive north onto less populated roads to really test out how it drives on curved roadways and how it performs for overtaking, etc. 

Test all the features of the vehicle

BMW vehicles come with plenty of innovative and convenient features. It is essential when you are test driving a BMW that you learn about these features and what they do. Take some time before you start driving to make sure you understand what certain features do. Additionally, while you are out on your test drive, test out the different drive modes that the vehicle offers.

Test driving a BMW vehicle thoroughly is essential to learn about how the vehicle performs in different scenarios and to learn about all of its features.
