Test drive an Acura today. This way, you’ll get a first-hand feel for a car model and determine whether it’s a good fit for you. There’s a lot more to test driving, though, than just driving around the block. Here are some tips on getting the most of your test-driving session.

Ask a Lot of Questions

One of our specialists will accompany you along for the ride. Take advantage of this by asking any model-related questions you may have. Questions that may come up during the ride include:

  • Mileage and fuel economy
  • How-to questions, such as how to use the infotainment system or how to switch drive modes
  • Available trims
  • Add-on packages

Bring Passengers Along

If you normally commute with your spouse and kids, their input matters as well. While our specialist will need to occupy the front passenger seat, members of your family can ride along. Get their feedback. Do they have enough legroom? Is this a vehicle they can comfortably ride in for long commutes?

Test It on City Streets and the Freeway

Don’t limit the test drive to the local streets. Take it on the highway and freeway to get a comprehensive feel. How well does the car accelerate? Is the handling just as smooth at higher speeds? How well can you deal with the blind spots when merging or changing lanes?

Tinker with the Infotainment System

The infotainment system is your gateway to on-the-road entertainment as well as navigation and other pivotal features. Tinker with it during the test drive. Is the menu intuitive? Is the screen customizable?
