It’s a good news story, in an industry that experienced a decline in sales in 2017, West End Suzuki bucked the trend and saw an increase on sales of new Suzukis from their Orchar Park dealership – in fact they have seen an increase every year they have been in business.
With its low running costs and range of fuel-efficient engines, Suzuki was the car of choice for buyers in 2017 and the manufacturer experienced a 6% increase in the number of new ones sold in the UK (at a time when overall annual demand fell by 5.7%).
Of course, Suzuki cars have always been popular, but their popularity has been boosted by the Japanese manufacturer’s launch of the all new Suzuki Ignis and new model Suzuki Swift in 2017.
After an absence of 10 years, West End Motor Group brought the Japanese car brand back to Dundee in 2013.
The West End Motor Group is a family-run business that has been delivering a first class motoring experience in Tayside for more than 30 years.
At its West End Suzuki branch at Monifieth Road in Broughty Ferry, home to the Suzuki main dealer for Dundee and surrounding area, the staff prides itself on a high standard of customer service (the fundamental basis that the motor group has been built on) and is already experiencing a very high percentage of repeat business.
Sales manager Craig Tunnicliffe leads a team of friendly sales staff, who assist motorists in making the right choice of new Suzuki or pre-owned car, from the initial vehicle demonstration through to the various finance, colour and accessories options.
But that’s just the start of the relationship, as once the customer drives off with their new purchase, the relationship continues with the dealer. The motor group has an excellent Aftersales team, managed by award-winning Paul Coghlan, who scooped Suzuki Aftersales Manager of the Year in 2017-2018 – for the second year running!
Paul and his experienced team of Suzuki trained technicians are there to assist you with any motoring concerns.
If you are considering purchasing a new (or used) Suzuki this year, then there are some tempting offers at West End Suzuki.
Here are just a few reasons why your next car should be a Suzuki:
There is a Suzuki to suit everyone
The new car range at Suzuki starts with the City Smart Celerio right up to the rugged Vitara Allgrip – and everything in between. If you are looking for a city car that is easy to drive and surprisingly spacious, the budget-focused City Smart Celerio could be the one for you. Perhaps you would opt for the all-new Suzuki Ignis, a “vehicle with a real sense of character” that was named Scotland’s Compact Car of the Year at the Association of Scottish Motoring Writers Awards? Or you might be tempted by the SUV-style Vitara Allgrip, a good value cross-over that is considered as a very competent and great looking 4×4?
Suzuki cars have a low cost of ownership
Running costs can be a costly affair, but opt for a Suzuki and in return you’ll get affordable running costs, insurance, road tax and fuel (because of Suzuki’s range of fuel efficient engines). In fact, Auto Express named the Suzuki Celerio 1.0 SZ2 in the top five for “the cheapest car to run in the UK in 2018”.
Suzuki is eco-friendly
As drivers we all want to be more conscious of the environment when choosing our new car. When it comes to ‘green motoring’, the new Suzuki Swift came out on top. The Suzuki Swift won Scottish Car of the Year in the Eco Category of this year’s awards organised by the Association of Scottish Motoring Writers (ASMW). It was described as “genuinely capable of achieving the exceptional real world fuel economy claimed by its maker coupled with lively performance”, by the president of the ASMW, Stephen Park.
