Mazda Family

When it comes to buying a new car at Auto Express Mazda, lots of people know just what they want in terms of color, body style, price, and features. And that's ok, as long as you still put a test drive at the top of your to-do list before you buy.

Checklist for Your Mazda Test Drive

As you explore our big inventory of Mazda cars and prepare for a test drive, keep the following criteria in mind.

  • Visibility: are you comfortable in the driver's seat as far as being able to see forward, back, and in your blind-spots without difficulty?
  • Acceleration: does the car move as quickly as you'd like it to without having to give it too much gas? How sensitive is the gas pedal?
  • Room: is the cabin big enough for all of the family and friends you may be ferrying about town? How much legroom does everyone have, especially in the backseat? Will you have enough room for cargo?
  • Styling: does the vehicle pass your "eye test" in terms of color, curves, shape, and dimensions? Would you be proud to park the car in your driveway?
  • Functionality: can you reach and operate the car's controls with ease? Are the gauges and infotainment amenities easy to understand?
  • Braking: does the brake pedal respond immediately to your foot, or do you have to press down harder/longer than you'd like?
