How to Buy a Car from a Car Dealership in GTA Online

Learn what cars each dealership carries and where to find them.

Car dealerships are now available in GTA Online. That’s right, instead of zooming by Simeon’s dealership as you evade the police, you can now enter the building and have yourself a nice little shootout. You can also buy a car there. Because dealerships are such a new feature, here’s how to find and use car dealerships.

How to find a Car Dealership in GTA Online

There are now two car dealerships in GTA Online: Premium Deluxe Motorsport and Luxury Autos Showroom. Both have different selections of vehicles but neither one is difficult to find.

You can find Premium Deluxe Motorsport here in Pillbox hill in South Los Santos.

Luxury Autos Showroom can easily be found in Rockford Hills in Northern Los Santos across from the record studio.

How to Buy a Car from a dealership in GTA Online

You can easily purchase any vehicle at a dealership by simply walking up to it. Dealership vehicles are usually more expensive compared to the ones you’d buy on the car websites in-game due to the custom liveries they come with. These are the vehicles currently on sale at both dealerships:

Premium Deluxe Motorsport:

Stirling GT ($999,510):

  • Speed: 74.04
  • Acceleration: 75.00
  • Braking: 26.67
  • Handling: 71.21

Cognoscenti ($167,800)

  • Speed: 75.12
  • Acceleration: 65.00
  • Braking: 18.33
  • Handling: 63.64

Remus (1,390,520):

  • Speed: 78.77
  • Acceleration: 81.75
  • Braking: 30.00
  • Handling: 81.50

Nebula Turbo ($826,150)

  • Speed: 74.04
  • Acceleration: 60.00
  • Braking: 16.67
  • Handling: 59.09

Tornado ($30,000):

  • Speed: 69.75
  • Acceleration: 40.00
  • Braking: 8.33
  • Handling: 54.55

Luxury Autos Showroom:

Autarch ($1,955,000)

  • Speed: 86.38
  • Acceleration: 94.25
  • Braking: 40.00
  • Handling: 100.00

Torero XO ($2,890,000):

  • Speed: 86.52
  • Acceleration: 96.25
  • Braking: 38.33
  • Handling: 83.92

As you can see, there is a big difference between the two dealerships. Premium Deluxe sells cars that any player who isn’t poor can afford. Luxury Autos has faster, high-end vehicles that cost more. The selection at both dealerships will change weekly so by the time you read this, a completely different selection of cars will probably be available. The vehicle selection at both dealerships comes from the in-game websites.

Cars from Premium Deluxe Motorsports come from Southern San Andreas Super Autos while cars from Luxury Autos Showroom come from Legendary Motorsport. An advantage of buying from a dealership is that your car will be quickly delivered to your garage of choice within seconds. Purchasing from websites usually takes a few minutes. Dealerships are just another option to buy vehicles if you want to get a better feel for how they look and drive.

How to Test Drive and Inspect Vehicles

The biggest difference between both dealerships is that Premium Deluxe offers a test drive for each vehicle on sale. To activate this feature, simply approach the car you want to test drive, then choose the test drive feature. You’ll then be transported inside the vehicle and will be able to drive it until the five-minute timer expires. 

If you’d like to end the test drive before that happens, just hold down the triangle button on PlayStation or Y on Xbox. Beware that doing this will kick you out of the vehicle and transport you to a nearby location. You won’t automatically be returned to the dealership. If you die while test driving, the test drive will end and you will respawn where you died. You also have the option to return the vehicle to the dealership before the test drive ends. Doing so will trigger a cutscene where your character drives the car into the building.

While Luxury Autos doesn’t allow you to test drive vehicles, you can still inspect them. This allows you to zoom in on different aspects of the vehicle before making a purchase.

Other Things You Should Know

Inside Premium Deluxe Motorsport, you can refill your snacks for free. This is a great option for players who can’t afford to purchase an Agency which also gives the same option. There is also a vending machine in the dealership as well. If you get sick of looking at cars or eating snacks, you can partake in the pastime of humans everywhere: Sitting. That’s right you can now sit inside the dealership. Exciting isn’t it? 

If that doesn’t appeal to you, then you’ll be happy to know that a computer located inside the dealership allows you to browse the Southern San Andreas Super Autos website. Here you can buy any vehicle listed on the site even if it’s not currently available at the dealership. As mentioned earlier, the Premium Deluxe Motorsport car selection will come from this website so you can get a taste of what future vehicles will be available.
