Best car configurators

In many cases, you can spec your ideal car from the comfort of your own home and go on to complete a finance agreement and order it, all without visiting a dealership. We’ve only included configurators that giveyou prices, even if the customisation options on some luxury car websites that don’t are very impressive. The engine section, for example, gives you the fuel type, power, performance, economy, company-car tax ranking and information about the drivetrain. The Porsche configurator opens in a whole new window with no adverts or distractions, so speccing your ideal 911, Cayenne or Taycan is an enjoyable experience. You can come up with some very garish creations (we’d like to see your dealer’sface if you spec a Porsche 911 in ‘Miami Blue’ with a bright red interior), and prices are provided for everything, so you can enjoy choosing some very costly options. The Land Rover Defender personalisation process is particularly exhaustive, and you can easily add the cost of a supermini in options. These include the Explorer and Adventurer packs, which add featureslike the waterproof side pannier shown in this photo, and then there’s the choice of hundreds of other options from Union Jack dust caps to a dog ramp. Practicality champion Skoda has an easy-to-use configurator that shows you the differences between each trim level, and makes it easy to figure out which version is best for you.
