THE latest edition of Car Dealer can now be downloaded for free as an iPad version and it’s packed with news and features – including an in-depth, 24-page look at the Geneva Motor Show!

Our expert writers got all the lowdown on the latest launches out in Switzerland, as well as interviews with the big industry names – plus we list our top 10 star cars of the show.

There’s an update on CDX17 – the biggest automotive industry expo in the UK – which takes place at Silverstone on May 23 and is free to attend for car dealers. New highlights include a workshop with a customer service expert who has extensive John Lewis experience as well as a Virgin Atlantic pedigree, while the Discovery Zone will unite the best new brands and products in one place and the Live Stage will host sessions including a Q&A with SMMT chief executive Mike Hawes about how Brexit will affect the motor trade – even more relevant now that Article 50 has been triggered. Yes, CDX really will be the place to be that Tuesday! You can get your free CDX tickets here.

We celebrate 10 years of the Qashqai by taking first and current models on a mammoth road trip round the UK, speaking to Nissan dealers en route and getting their thoughts on the all-conquering crossover.

Issue 109 also has an exclusive interview with Ian Robertson – arguably the most senior Brit in the car industry – who sits on the board of the BMW Group. His thoughts on a range of subjects certainly make for compelling reading.

There are five – count ’em! – test drives, too. Find out what we thought of Alfa Romeo’s first SUV the Stelvio, as well as the new versions of the Seat Leon Cupra 300, Volkswagen Golf and Mercedes E-Class Coupe, as well as the Volvo V90 Cross Country.

The recent sale of Vauxhall to the PSA Group set James Baggott thinking… What would he do if he were the new boss at the car manufacturer?

Lawgistics helps with negotiating the tricky situation of an under-performing salesman, as well as advising on what can be done if you’re unhappy with a judge’s decision in a small claims dispute. And, of course, there are our clever columnists Simon Henstock, James Litton, Big Mike and Ben Garside.
