THE Ancaster dealer group has officially opened a major new Hyundai site in Croydon, which features the Korean brand’s largest showroom in the UK.
Hyundai Croydon has relocated from a modest facility in South Croydon to substantial, fully-refurbished premises in the prime retail area along Purley Way, which significantly enhances its customer offer.
The move was driven by an increase in Hyundai sales in the UK, and the increase of 1.88 per cent in the first six months of the year bucked the overall decline.
The number of new and used cars that Ancaster can display has nearly quadrupled, up from 21 to a total of 79. The large showroom can accommodate 29 new vehicles, while there is outdoor display space for 50 approved used cars.
With an overall indoor footprint of more than 1,800 square metres, the new dealership incorporates the largest Hyundai showroom in the UK and features the brand’s latest corporate identity.
Managing director of Ancaster Stephen Wood said: ‘Our Croydon customers will be astonished by the difference between our old premises and this new facility.
‘The showroom alone is five times larger than our previous site, and the broader level of capacity and capability means we can proudly deliver a much-improved experience for everyone who visits us.
‘The relocation is a major undertaking for Ancaster and highlights our continued belief in the strength and success of the Hyundai brand.’
