A demonstrator, also commonly known as a demo, is a new vehicle that has accumulated from 10,000 to 20,000 kilometers. It has been used only for road testing or the commuting of privileged employees.
Demonstrators are unique because of their mileage and possible equipment additions.
If you’d like to rent or buy a new vehicle, a demonstrator is a very interesting option, and one that could provide you significant savings.
Advantages of a Demonstrator*
The vehicle’s price is revised downwards based on its depreciation and number of kilometers driven, resulting in a substantial discount that can go as high as 10% compared to the MSRP (Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price).
These vehicles are showcased for future owners. As such, some of them may be equipped with extra options according to what is available at that moment, such as:
Two sets of tires (winter and summer)
Additional, original brand equipment
Paint, leather and upholstery protector
Chip-resistant windshield coating
The manufacturer’s warranty is valid for all demonstrators. Considering vehicle wear, the warranty period is slightly shorter since it begins on the day the vehicle is registered. Full replacement insurance is available for this type of vehicle.
Vehicles in Excellent Condition
Occasionally a demo has minor defects due to normal vehicle wear and tear. In such cases, all repairs will have been made before it goes up for sale. Given that demonstrators belong to the dealer, they are in excellent condition and will have been driven with care and respect.
