If you are considering buying a new car and have been to a car dealership then you have most probably been offered a test drive. A test drive usually consist of the sales person driving the car on a set route and then switching and allowing you to drive it the rest of the way. This allows you to test the car from a passenger’s and a driver’s point of view.
This is a great way to get a feel for if a car is right for you, but when you are spending ten thousand pounds plus, you may want a to spend a little bit more time in the car to be certain it is what you are looking for.
If this is the case, then why not see if you can hire one for a few days or a week. You may not be able to hire the car with exactly the same spec as the one you are looking to buy, but even if you can hire a similar one, it will give you more to go off.
