When we are looking for a new vehicle, there are several options. There are new vehicles and used vehicles, and we also have the option of demo vehicles. These vehicles are already registered and their warranty is already started, but their price is often very attractive.
Sometimes there are a few kilometers on the meter, but not very much and the warranty, although already underway, is still very generous. Much more, at least, than a used vehicle.
Demo vehicles are often used by the dealer as a service vehicle or as a vehicle for sales representatives and members of management, and as a result they have been very well maintained.
In short, there are a lot of advantages to opt for a demo. Here are three:
A demonstrator vehicle will always be more affordable than a new vehicle, even if it ultimately has very little mileage. We mentioned that the demo vehicle is already registered and that its warranty has already begun, and that it already has a few kilometers under its belt, but these small realities are amply compensated by the fact that you save a lot on the retail prices and that you often have advantages in terms of financing.
We often tend to imagine demos vehicles as cars that have been used by potential buyers and therefore have not been well treated. The reality is often quite different. Demo vehicles come from a number of different sources, many of which are vehicles that have been loaned to employees or used by customers that already own a similar model. In any case, you can rest assured that these vehicles have been well treated, and have also been inspected.
Sometimes the vehicles in question have not even been used. These are vehicles of the last model year that have been registered by the dealer.
Quite often, you get warranty protection that is virtually complete. Your demo vehicle is therefore protected for several more years, and for several kilometers. The same cannot be said for pre-owned vehicles, for example.
