Why We Take Pictures

June 16th, 2020 by

Reading a description of a car and seeing it are completely different experiences. Viewing online car images is common practice  among buyers.  Most buyers identify a vehicle of interest before visiting the dealership.  With increasing numbers of customers using our Online Shopper Tool, to buy a car it is more important than ever to have clear detailed images.

At Kia Country we take pictures of every car that comes onto our lot, both new and used.  We want to show the condition of the car and be transparent about any flaws, as well as, its strong points. Many dealers post standard stock photos that aren’t of the actual unit available. We do our best to provide pictures of each individual unit so that you can compare as well as look for the features you are interested in. Each car has 33 or more images taken depending on the features and equipment of the car. Our photographer takes exterior and interior shots such as:

  • Head on exteriorblog
  • 3 quarters exterior
  • Side profile exterior
  • Rear exterior
  • Front and back seats
  • Steering Wheel
  • Console
  • Dashboard
  • Cabin
  • Heating and AC controls
  • Media/Radio controls
  • Charging ports
  • Trunk space
  • Tires and rims

Most importantly, extra or special features such as, heat/ventilated seats, panoramic sunroof, or heads up display, also have images taken.  Many options are confusing in description and easier located or identified in pictures. These images ensure that you can see as much of the car as possible without ever coming into the dealership.  In addition, we string these images together with a narrated video to provide even more detail.

Our online resources are valuable for research purchases. On average, customers perform 16 hours of research before narrowing down their choices.  At that point the next best step is to take a test drive.

Contact us in advance and we will have the vehicle(s) ready for you when you arrive.
