Ride & Drives let visitors try out new models at Auto Show

The complimentary OEM ride & drives are always popular, and this year the weather in DC cooperated so that all out ride & drives went on as scheduled on the streets around the Washington Auto Show at its W.E. Washington Convention Center venue.

Six OEMs offered new models for showgoers to test: BMW, Ford, Kia, Mazda, Toyota and Volkswagen.

And this year, for the first time, an inside ride & drive was offered, on the test track in the Jaguar/Land Rover space (see Jaguar/Land Rover photos on page 2, above).

Visitors could have a professional race car driver drive them in the Jaguar E-Pace even before the new model came to dealerships, or they could drive a Land Rover around an off-road test track.
