Implications - Automotive showrooms are evolving into multi-sensory platforms that engage younger consumers with high-tech, cross-categorical experiences. Millennials and Gen Zers, while content with Uber and public transit, have not eliminated the desire to purchase vehicles, but rather delayed this large-scale investment until they're financially able. Meanwhile, as brands allow consumers time to gain this stability, their efforts are focused on creating memories, providing experiences and increasing brand awareness.
