Keyless Start/Steering Wheel

  • Enter the vehicle and close the door. How do you feel sitting in the driver’s seat? What words would you use to describe that feeling to a customer? Commanding? Comfortable? Something else?

  • To start the engine, press your foot on the brake and press the "START" button once more. Listen to the sound of the engine. How might a customer describe the sound? Strong? Powerful?

  • Place your hands around the wheel as you would if you were going to drive.

  • Take note of the fit and finish of the steering wheel. What words might you use to describe the feel and quality of it to a customer? Performance-oriented? Premium? Inviting?
