Two and a half years after first opening its doors in Dorset, Westover Hyundai has a new look. The redeveloped showroom on Wallisdown Road in Poole is amongst just 14 of Hyundai's 175 locations across the whole of the UK to have adopted the updated image to date.
The showroom is now based over two floors and has its own entrance (previously shared with adjacent showroom, Westover Renault). Both the upstairs and downstairs areas feature big bright spaces, modern furnishings and the latest technology, delivering the best-possible experience for showroom visitors. Other Hyundai dealerships will all follow suit by 2018.
“We are extremely proud of our new appearance – especially as we're such an early adopter of the updated style - and have really enjoyed hearing positive feedback from our customers, who seem equally delighted with the changes we've made," says Martin Hayward, Brand Manager for Westover Hyundai. “The new showroom majors on the extensive use of glass, ceramics and signage. The result is a warm and open space with a premium feel which neatly sums up the quality and professionalism of our service and is a proper reflection of the modern, vibrant Hyundai brand. The whole team feels really proud of the showroom and we're definitely coming into work with a spring in our step!
“I speak on behalf of everyone here when I thank all our customers for their patience during the redevelopment, as well as their continued support. We hope to welcome our regulars, and plenty of new faces too, to the showroom in the near future. We're sure everyone will enjoy our new facilities - and hopefully some will take advantage of our great opening offers too."Westover Group Sales Operations Director, Mike Boyd, adds: “The Group investment in Hyundai reflects our aim to deliver the most positive experience possible to all our customers - providing modern and appealing locations which do justice to each of our brands is the first step in that process, underpinned by robust staff recruitment, training and development strategies.
“Strengthening our business also allows us to continue to support other local companies, as well as to bring employment opportunities to local people. We currently have a team of 615, who do a superb job across our 24 showrooms in both Dorset and Wiltshire."
Westover Hyundai will be welcoming several new models to the showroom in 2015. The New Generation i20 went on sale in January and has been a great success to date, generating positive comments and strong sales. It will be joined later in the year by the new i20 Coupe, the New i30 and i30 Turbo, the New i40, the New iX-20 and the All-New Tuscon, which replaces the iX-35.
