The galleries group together different makes and models based on themes like ten of the best hatchbacks; the best tax free cars or top super minis. The interactive galleries provide real life photos of the new cars in action.

Another often mentioned feature of the new website design is the use of menus for easy navigation to the exact offers consumers are considering. A consumer can start by going to the new BMW page where they'll find all the available models with links to expert reviews and owner ratings.
If the user were to choose the link to new BMW 3 Series or any other new BMW model they wish to investigate. These pages include all the details including available trim packages, specifications and available options along with links to the expert reviews and owner ratings for the model.

The New Cars website features the ability for the buyer to compare up to four different cars at once side by side with features from the included model details page. The user can take the car they are interested in and compare it with three others.

This allows users to easily compare value and available packages. Once the car has been chosen there is an easy to use search feature that provides a list of new car dealers to get more information and brochures.
