We’re absolutely thrilled that our new Renault and Dacia dealership is now (August, 2015) open at Newport Retail Park alongside our Kia, Fiat and Hyundai brands.
The purpose-built 3,831 square foot showroom is fully operational and is the start of a great relationship for us with Renault and Dacia.
Paul Edwards, General Manager of the new dealership, explained: “Our new £500,000 refurbed, hi-tech dealership looks absolutely fantastic, it is modern and fully interactive, catering to customer’s needs and enhancing their experience.
“The showroom features all of the latest technology including videos about staff and services and a digital lounge, including free Wi-Fi. In the showroom a ‘Brand Wall’ displays Renault related content, news and promotions. Accessories and service packages are displayed prominently at strategic locations.
“All of the cars are set out in ‘zones’, making it easier for customers to learn about the range. These include the ‘Passion Zone’ displaying key models, ‘ZE Zone’, which focuses on Renault’s zero emissions product line and the ‘Sport Zone’, highlighting Renault’s expertise in auto racing. An interactive ‘Configurator Wall’ will introduce customers to the full range of colour possibilities.”
The dealership stocks Renault and Dacia’s full range of cars from superminis, hatchbacks to urban crossovers as well as Renault’s electric vehicles, such as the Renault ZOE, Twizy and Kangoo Z.E bringing customers the comprehensive range of new vehicles.
It also has a new electric charge point enhancing the M4 corridor for electric charging.
The new brand is also included in our already established Motability scheme, offering customers a wider range to choose from.
There is also a new Renault workshop on-site with ramps, offering class four and seven MOTS and the dealership is an official wholesaler of Renault and Dacia parts.
Paul added: “This is a huge investment for the city and Newport is now the place to be when it comes to buying new and nearly new cars.
“Our Newport site is now the home of five fantastic car brands and is extremely convenient for people living in Monmouthshire/Torfaen and Blaenau Gwent, who would often have to make long trips to Bristol, Hereford or Cardiff for their vehicle needs. Now we have everything under one roof for them.”
There will be an official opening ceremony taking place in October with a special VIP.
