Consumers are more excited about driving assistance features than self-driving cars, according to new CarGurus research
We last surveyed consumers on their attitudes toward autonomous vehicles (AVs) in 2019. This year, we checked in to see if their excitement had grown. The short answer? No. While most have gotten more comfortable with the idea of self-driving cars, overall excitement for them has remained relatively flat. AVs are a huge leap in technology, according to shoppers, but the majority aren’t convinced the pros outweigh the cons, especially with regard to safety.
Here, we break down three key findings from our latest Self-Driving Vehicle Sentiment Survey conducted in April and what they mean for dealers.
