Car Dealer Power 2021

CD 159 Power Awards

This is our survey where dealers rate the manufacturers and suppliers they work with, sorting the wheat from the chaff. It’s all done anonymously, so you can get to say exactly what you think of them. Don’t miss this fantastic opportunity!


CD 159 Investigations

The new car market may be facing something of a struggle but it’s an entirely different story as far as LCVs are concerned. How long before the bubble bursts, though?

We also examine how the global shortage of semiconductors could actually be good news for the used car sector.


CD 159 Interview

We caught up with Vertu Motors chief executive Robert Forrester for a Car Dealer Live exclusive. Read what he thinks about the likes of Cazoo and Cinch and his thoughts on furlough repayments, among the topics.


CD 159 Features
BMW’s Mini is celebrating its 20th anniversary and we stroll down memory lane in honour of this modern icon. We also take a close look at Lightyear One – the solar-powered EV that’s as practical as it’s futuristic – and select some cool stuff with an automotive leaning.


CD 159 Forecourts

We’ve got a packed section for you this month, focusing on the Lotus Exige Sport 390 Final Edition, Volvo XC40 P8 Recharge, the tweaked Hyundai Kona and facelifted Mini Hatch. What did motoring writers Jack Evans and Ted Welford think of them? Dive in to find out…
