Car Dealer issue 162 is available now and the 64-page edition is full of news, views, interviews, reviews and more…


Here’s a taster of what you can find in the new edition…


CD 162 Interviews

We’ve got some cracking exclusives – one with Cambria Automobiles CEO Mark Lavery, who talks about his takeover offer for the company to bring it into private ownership, and another with TC Harrison chairman James Harrison as the family-run Ford firm celebrates its 90th anniversary.

The latest issue of Car Dealer Magazine is out now!


CD 162 Investigations
Not one, not two, but THREE investigations for you this month! We look at:

  • The aftersales profit threat posed by EVs and how to avoid it
  • The fastest- and slowest-selling used cars
  • In yet ANOTHER exclusive – aren’t we good to you? – how the popularity of vans just seems to keep on growing


CD 162 Features

We also have a trio of features for you to enjoy:

  • The car subscription model – Rebecca Chaplin tries it for size to see how well it works
  • Some of the coolest products around at the moment
  • A look at Audi’s new super-speedy RS3 and some of its rivals


CD 162 Forecourt

The power of three continues with our First Drives. Motoring writers Jack Evans and Darren Cassey try out Hyundai’s EV – the Ioniq 5, McLaren’s road-going version of its GT4 race car – the 620R, and Land Rover’s plug-in hybrid addition to its Defender range – the 110 P400E.


CD 162 Columnists

Three is, of course. also the magic number for how many columnists we have in the magazine…

  • Contributing editor James Batchelor keeps a steady hand on the CEO’s page while he’s on his sabbatical, and this month draws our attention to the plight of the city car
  • Big Mike looks back fondly to when August meant bumper bonuses for dealers – even if it did also mean a LOT of hard work
  • Automotive retail consultant James Litton, meanwhile, reveals another reason why used car prices are going up


CD 162 Round up

Our four-page news digest has mini versions of a large number of automotive stories – and for the expanded versions, you simply have to click on them!

What’s more, we also bring you business news and supplier updates, plus a look at what interviewees have been saying on Car Dealer Live in addition to our ever-popular Car Dealer Podcast.

There’s also the regular finance section, thoughts and opinions from dealers in our Feedback spread, as well as a Car Dealer Power update – don’t forget to take part in our survey if you haven’t already as it closes on Tuesday, August 31.
