Augmented Reality (AR) is the most fascinating technology which overlays information and objects on real-world physical environments.

AR is now the favorite among car dealers across the globe and they are using AR tools to boost sales and enhance the customer experience.

The digital studio provided customers with the options of customizing their own car model using AR, which gave them a hundred million possible configurations.
BMW aims to transform the entire car buying experience with its BMW visualizer, which brings the brand digitally to the consumer. The new tech-savvy generation is excited and enthused with these AR solutions.

JLR has gone a step forward and has provided a virtual test drive for its new car Velar by launching an AR-enabled ad campaign. The beauty of this banner ad campaign is that the customer can click the ad and experience a 360-degree view of the car’s interiors and the AR system also includes hotspots for further detailing on car features.
