Suzuki GB PLC is pleased to announce the addition of Canterbury Suzuki to its nationwide dealer network. Operated by the family-run Broad Oak Motor Group, an existing Suzuki Service Centre and retailer of Approved Used cars, the seven-car showroom is conveniently located on Broad Oak Road, one of the main thoroughfares leading into Canterbury city centre.

Fully refurbished to create a flagship location with state-of-the-art facilities, the 800 square foot standalone dealership provides customers with a modern Suzuki retail experience. On display is the award-winning and stylish model line-up, which includes the third-generation Swift and Swift Sport superminis, the S-Cross crossover, and the updated 2019 model year Vitara compact SUV variants. The approachable and knowledgeable sales team, which counts a Motability specialist, is equally on hand to assist drivers with test drives and purchases, and orders are now being taken for the all-new lightweight four-wheel drive Jimny. In addition, there is a large external forecourt with a choice of more than 30 great value Approved Used Suzuki models.

When visiting Canterbury Suzuki any day of the week, customers can relax in comfort in the hospitality area and enjoy complementary refreshments and newspapers, as well as free Wi-Fi. A comprehensive range of accessories is also available to peruse for those wanting to add a personal touch to their Suzuki.

As an approved Suzuki Service Centre, vehicle owners are able to drop off and pick up their car at Canterbury Suzuki for routine maintenance and MOTs. All work carried out adheres to the Suzuki Service Promise, which means that they benefit from, amongst other advantages, pricing that is transparent, the use of genuine parts during any maintenance or repair work, and a free health check.

Dale Wyatt, Director of Automobile at Suzuki GB PLC, explained: “The Broad Oak Motor Group has done an exceptional job to create a dealership that reflects the true brand values and the merits of our product range. It has been encouraging to see our association grow with the business over the years, and they are the ideal partner to expand our presence in the area. Vitara and Jimny have always proved popular in the county, and with the latest versions now going on sale, the timing couldn’t have been better.”

Kevin Taunton, Managing Director of Broad Oak Motor Group Limited, added: “To date, we have enjoyed a long-standing and successful relationship with Suzuki. Therefore, with the brand recording strong demand in the UK, coupled with a recently refreshed product range that is underscored by excellent reliability and great value, we felt that it was the right commercial decision to expand our portfolio to encompass new Suzuki car sales for the first time. We look forward to welcoming motorists in East Kent and beyond to the new showroom, and I am sure that they will be very impressed with what they see.”
