Sit in the vehicle to make sure you are comfortable

Even if you are going to be driving your Audi vehicle a lot more than riding shotgun, it is still important to take a seat on the passenger side and in the back. Doing this will give you a feel for how your passages will feel while they ride in the vehicle with you. Obviously, you will want to sit in the driver’s seat as well, but may people tend to neglect the other seating positions in the vehicle.

Try out some of the technology throughout the vehicle 

Even before you drive the Audi vehicle off of the lot for your test drive, make sure you sit inside and learn about all the technology. Test out how the lights go on and off, how the radio and Bluetooth works, how the interior lighting works, adjust the seating position and steering wheel position, learn about what the digital dash does, etc. These are all things you can check out before you start driving the vehicle. Once you are out on the roadways, it will be difficult to pay attention to how the vehicle drives if you are distracted by learning the technology.

Check out the safety features 

Make sure you familiarize yourself with the safety features of the Audi vehicle you are looking at. Where are the airbags? How to they deploy? What kind of driver assistance features does the vehicle have? Test out the backup camera and 360-degree view camera. These are some of the safety features you should check out first before you start your drive.

Have fun on your drive

Once you take the Audi vehicle out on the roadways for a test drive, have some fun with it! Take it onto the highway and test out the acceleration, overtaking, and handling, obviously in a safe and legal manner. Additionally, take it onto city roadways to test out how it feels on a daily drive, or take it more north to two-lane roads that are more open and curvy. Taking a thorough drive on different types of roads will give you a good insight into how the Audi vehicle performs.

These are just a few of the ways that you can ensure you are people test driving the Audi vehicle you are looking at.
