In the market for a world-class, well-crafted Volvo vehicle, but need a little help deciding on the best configuration for your needs? At McKevitt Volvo Cars, we can't blame you. Our lineup of available new Volvo models is outstanding, with something to please everyone, but how do you decide on your perfect fit? With the all-important test drive, of course.

With a large collection of models, styles, trims, and powertrains, it can be tough choosing which Volvo you want. But taking your potential favorites out for a spin on the streets of San Leandro can help. If you're ready to embark on your next test-driving adventure, we've got some essential tips and things to consider along the journey:

  1. Interior space. We suggest experiencing the comfort level and legroom from all seats inside the vehicle. Put yourself in the passenger seat for a few minutes and see how comfortable your front-seat passengers will be on road trips long and short. Squeeze into the backseat and consider whether your gangly teenagers and growing children will be comfortable on the road. Knowing comfort levels all around can help you make the right choice.
  2. Mimic daily drives. Does your commute to the office require navigating freeway traffic jams? Fitting into tight spots in crowded parking lots? We suggest trying to recreate your daily drives as much as possible. It's the best way to get a feel for how you want your vehicle to handle on your day-to-day drives.
  3. Review all features. Don't just take a quick glance at the appearance of your selected vehicle. Dive deep, and make sure it has the features and amenities you want. If you have a specific list in mind, you may even consider testing one of our used Volvo vehicles to see how many features you can get for your budget when you shop pre-owned rather than brand-new.

Contact our team online or on the phone to get more test driving tips and to make an appointment to meet your favorite potential vehicles in person. We look forward to working with you and to introducing you to your next car or SUV soon.
