Wish you could experience a luxury vehicle without the hassle of going to the dealership? Faster than you can say 'I-should-be-sitting-in-a-Maserati,' we have the perfect solution.
AOL has just launched Autoblog 360, offering car shoppers an interactive experience on their tablets. Every angle is captured, ensuring the user receives as close to an experience as sitting in the driver's seat as possible. And, if the virtual test drive experience has you excited enough over the car, you'll soon be able to request an in-person test drive. We'll arrange for delivery of the vehicle to your home or office where you can test drive on the roads you take every day – no pressure and hassle-free.
Other features include:
- 360-degree interior and exterior views
- Vehicle stats, best deals pricing & more
- Interactive experience where maneuvers of the tablet screen mimic the driver's eyes inside the vehicle - including the ability to virtually "open" the glove compartment and investigate the storage of the center console

Wish you were handed the keys to a brand new car? Over 50,000 other people were hoping the same thing when they entered AOL Autos' "Technology of the Year" award sweepstakes to win a new Dodge Dart. AOL Autos' editor-in-chief, David Kiley, traveled to Tacoma, Washington, yesterday to deliver the new car to the one lucky winner.
The Dodge Dart came equipped with AOL Autos' Technology of the Year award winner, Chrysler Group's Uconnect. The award was announced at this year's Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas and given to Uconnect for its class-exclusive Uconnect 8.4-inch touchscreen with built-in radio, available Garmin navigation, iPod control, climate controls, voice-activated Bluetooth®, SiriusXM Travel Link, weather updates and points of interest.
"I have never had a car I could sync to a smartphone or even navigation...I would hold the GPS in my hand as I'm driving, so this is going to be a big change," said Dodge Dart winner, Jennifer R.
Congratulations to the winner and to Chrysler Group's Uconnect for winning AOL Autos' Technology of the Year!
