The department evaluated 21 pursuit-rated vehicles including nine sedans, nine motorcycles, and three SUVs. The vehicles were tested in categories such as acceleration, dynamic handling, braking, and ergonomics.

The final report includes detailed driving notes from the two LASD and two Los Angeles Police Department drivers who tested the vehicles.
