WESTOVER Kia’s showroom in Ferndown has re-opened following a refurbishment.

The dealership on Wimborne Road East has room for eight vehicles as well as a purpose-built six-bay workshop with the latest diagnostic equipment.

The improved workshop means customers should enjoy shorter lead times on service, MOT and repair appointments.

There is more parking space for visitors, a larger forecourt for approved used vehicles and a new waiting area with complementary refreshments and newspapers.

Gary Clark, brand manager, said: “The redevelopment process has been long because we’ve had a complete rebuild but the finished showroom is definitely worth the wait – and I’m positive our customers will agree when they come and visit.

“We now have the most modern facilities of any Kia showroom in the country, as well as plenty of room for visitors and the capacity to stock a lot more cars. Anyone who wants to pop in and see is welcome.”

Westover has seen a 62 per cent increase in sales since it brought Kia to Dorset seven years ago. It soon stole the title of top UK dealership.

Mr Clark leads the business team, with John Watson heading the service teams and Matt O’Donegan joining as sales manager.

To celebrate the opening, Westover is offering the Kia Picanto for £99 a month, with a deal on the award-winning Kia Sportage at £15,995.
