Consumers are more excited about driving assistance features than self-driving cars, according to new CarGurus research
For several years, CarGurus has surveyed US consumers on their attitudes toward autonomous vehicles (AVs). This year, we also checked in with Canadian consumers to get their sentiments on the topic. The results? Overall excitement for AVs is relatively meager—similar to consumers in the US. According to shoppers, AVs are a huge leap in technology, but the majority aren’t convinced the pros outweigh the cons, especially concerning safety.
Here, we break down four key findings from our Self-Driving Vehicle Sentiment Survey conducted in April and what they mean for dealers.
