For the first time ever, the Dorset Echo held a new reg exhibition ahead of the March release of 2016's latest licence plates. The event offered Echo readers an insight into some of the latest cars, their design features and much more!
Held at Brewery Square in Dorchester on Saturday 20th February from 9am to 5pm and open to everyone, visitors were able to view the vehicles at their leisure, making the most of the opportunity to see 10 different cars in one place at one time.
Westover Group had a selection of its latest models on show, including cars from Land Rover, Jaguar, Kia, Toyota, Hyundai and Lexus.
Here's a little more information about the cars we had on show on the day:
Westover Land Rover will have just one of its iconic off-roaders to wow the crowds in Brewery Square but nip into the showrooms in Christchurch or Salisbury and you’ll see the full range in all its glory, as well as a large selection of high quality, approved used models.
Loaded with luxurious features, all models deliver exceptional 4x4 capability but they also bring comfort, space and style by the bucket load. Westover has worked with Land Rover for more than 30 years and the showroom’s friendly and professional teams would love to welcome you to Brewery Square, Christchurch or Salisbury.
The team at Westover Jaguar are taking an XE Prestige to Brewery Square’s exhibition. As anyone who visits will see for themselves, it’s a sports saloon that screams luxury but also offers outstanding levels of comfort and space. It’s also the most fuel efficient model in the range. Launched only last year, it’s the most advanced car Jaguar have ever produced and it is winning the awards to prove it, including being shortlisted for the 2016 European Car of the Year. With safety features galore, it also has an official five star safety rating. Come and visit us in Brewery Square – but if you can’t make it to Dorchester at the weekend, why not visit Westover Jaguar on West Quay Road in Poole.
The all-new Sportage only joined the line-up at Kia this month so it’s definitely the new kid on the block and it’ll be making one of its first public appearances in Dorset at the Brewery Square event. It’s a smart and refined SUV which has a re-styled front end, a classier interior and a new turbocharged four cylinder petrol engine option. If you’re interested in test driving the Sportage and finding out about its mod-cons for yourself, speak to the Westover Kia team on the day or pop to one of Westover Kia’s showrooms in Ferndown or Salisbury.
There’s so much happening at Toyota on Wallisdown Road in Poole that the showroom team decided to bring three of their spectacular, world-leading hybrid range to Brewery Square. Visitors will be able to see the Yaris Hybrid, Auris Hybrid and RAV4 Hybrid, which all combine petrol and electric power to minimise fuel consumption and deliver maximum efficiency. The Yaris is a nippy supermini, perfect for around town and easy to park, yet with space for five adults; the Auris is a stylish and spacious family hatchback; and the RAV4 is a crossover SUV – so there’s something for everyone. All three of the cars also benefit from Toyota’s excellent build quality and reliability. To see them in the flesh, visit the Toyota display at Brewery Square.
Launched back in the autumn of 2015, the Tucson has proved a big hit in Dorset and it’s making its first visit to Brewery Square for the Dorset Echo’s new vehicle event. Fresh from Westover Hyundai’s showroom on Wallisdown Road in Poole, the Tucson SE NAV 1.7 CRDi is an SUV with attitude. There’s masses of room for all the family (plus their bags) and it’s comfortable and affordable too. The Tucson on show has a diesel engine but, as well as several diesel choices, there’s also a petrol version and owners can choose whether to opt for two or four wheel drive. It’s scored highly in press reviews and it’s really worth a look, so come and visit Westover Hyundai at Brewery Square. If you miss the opportunity, then don’t forget the showroom is open seven days a week.
Come and see understated luxury, Lexus style. Westover Lexus Poole will be joining the line-up at Brewery Square, showcasing two stunning hybrid models, the IS300h (a hybrid saloon) and the NX300h (a premium compact SUV). Both cars are part conventional engine, part hybrid, bringing unbeatable fuel economy. Delivering a winning combination of quality, service and refinement, Lexus cars knock the socks off their German rivals – they’re great-looking, spacious and luxurious. Why not come and see for yourself? One of the team will be on hand to show you the cars on the day. Alternatively, the Lexus Poole showroom on West Quay Road is always ready to receive guests.
