Car Dealer issue 176 is out now – and its 64 pages really have got so much for you! 

Here’s a taster of what’s in the November 2022 edition, which is free to read and download.


CD 176 Interviews

Not one but TWO major interviews for you this month!

Car Dealer founder James Baggott found out exactly what BMW boss Oliver Zipse thought about the impending ban on sales of new petrol and diesel cars – among other topics – while Ted Welford spoke to Smart UK CEO David Browne about the manufacturer’s reinvention.


CD 176 Dashboard

The news came like a bolt out of the blue – Stellantis was planning on axeing 138 of its UK dealers. Read all about it here and get the lowdown on its major management restructure as well!

We also have associate editor James Batchelor lifting the covers off the Polestar 3, Ted Welford hailing the return of the Paris Motor Show, a picture round-up of this year’s Banger4Ben charity rally – the first year since 2019 that it’s been able to go abroad – plus we look at why the best September for new car sales in three years might not necessarily mean things are back to normal.

CD 176 Forecourt

Quite the trio of road tests for you this month, as James Baggott went behind the wheel of the Extended Wheel Base version of Bentley’s Bentayga SUV, while James Batchelor drove the first ‘electrified’ Alfa Romeo and Ted Welford had an early try-out of Smart’s new compact electric SUV.


CD 176 Features

How well do you think you know Geely? Among our features this month, we examine the key brands that the Chinese automotive group owns or has a vested interested in.

We also look at the key rivals to Lamborghini’s performance SUV the Urus Performante, and show you some of the latest cool stuff that’s available.


CD 176 Columnists

  • Talk is cheap, so they say, but our mystery columnist Big Mike was recently reminded of how a text cost him dearly
  • James Batchelor, meanwhile, is concerned for the future of one of his favourite manufacturers


CD 176 Round-ups

Our regular four-page news digest contains summaries of a host of the top automotive stories, with the full-length versions available by clicking on them.

There are business and supplier updates, too, plus a look at what car manufacturers have been working on recently.

Also inside…

We bring you our regular finance section, in which First Response digital marketer Richard Pygott talks about the importance of putting dealers and customers at the heart of what the company does.

Meanwhile, this month’s Feedback spread features a dealer who’s being harassed by a debt collection agency for a parking fine that isn’t theirs. There’s also another crop of chucklesome car industry memes.

Is that all?
