The Car Dealer Top 100 List of the most profitable car dealers in the UK – sponsored by ATG – and compiled in association with Mike Jones and Interpath is revealed below.

The list ranks franchised and non-franchised dealers by EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) profit.


Jones says this is the ‘fairest way’ as it’s the best assessment of a car dealer’s cash generation. 

Data from car dealers’ 2021 accounts were used to compile the league table. Some car dealers may not appear on the list as their accounts missed our deadline.

The full list is below and a video looking at the results in detail with Tim Smith from Car Dealer Top 100 sponsor ATG and Mike Jones is at the top of this story.
