Servicing and repair facilities are also part of the site’s offerings, including MOT testing, with Motability specialists on hand as well to offer advice on the range of adaptable vehicles.

Carl Prescott, Drive MG Scarborough general manager, said: ‘We are excited to announce the opening of our prestigious new MG dealership in Scarborough.

‘This marks a significant milestone for Drive as we continue to expand our services across the UK.

‘I’m thrilled to welcome my dedicated team, including our newly appointed showroom manager, Dave Clarkson, who brings a wealth of experience from renowned brands such as Land Rover and a large Vauxhall franchise.’
