The new edition of Car Dealer is out now – and it’s packed with news, views, reviews, interviews and features that you really need to see!
Issue 182 is free to read and download – here’s a sample of what’s between the digital covers…
In an exclusive interview, Gary Pearson, Ineos Automotive’s head of sales and marketing for the UK, told Car Dealer founder James Baggott just why the manufacturer isn’t looking to sign up any more dealers right now.
Associate editor James Batchelor got up close and personal with Citroen’s Oli concept car to check out how the French manufacturer sees the future panning out for its EVs.
And we look at Chinese brand BYD’s plans for a UK dealer network as it releases our cover star, the Atto 3.
James Batchelor and fellow motoring writers Jack Evans and Ted Welford have put three of the latest cars to the test for our regular Forecourt section.
Find out what they thought of what will be Jaguar’s last combustion-engined sports car, Ferrari’s latest V12-powered model (the SUV that the Prancing Horse refuses to call an SUV) and BYD’s first full production car to land on these shores.
Hyundai’s luxury offshoot Genesis has been going down a storm on its home turf in South Korea and is now setting its cap at Europe. How likely is it to succeed? Ted Welford went to Seoul to investigate for an in-depth feature.
We also bring you some of the latest cool products that you can enjoy now that the days are finally getting longer!
