A new study shows car buyers around the world, including South Africa, are changing how they buy cars and bikes. The days of multiple visits to the dealership to browse the selection are over. Customers instead are choosing a savvier, more convenient method to hunt for that new vehicle. The average car shopper today only makes two dealership visits and instead has turned to the internet. With a bevy of virtual car lots available on mobile, web and app, with everything from mid-size family suv’s to all-terrain bakkies and flashy sport cars you can now search anytime, anyplace for your dream car. In fact, 50% of car shoppers will use their smartphones when they are in the actual dealership to search for better deals, reviews etc according to tubularinsights report. "This is the most dramatic change we've seen in the auto industry and how people buy cars in the last 50 years," said Hans-Werner Kaas, McKinsey's senior partner. AutoTrader launched in 1992, it's 23 year old legacy has made it a trusted and experienced brand in the industry.
