Three Vauxhall retailers and one Vauxhall retailer group have been honoured at the coveted Dealer of the Year 2019 awards, hosted by Opel Group.

The retailers (Aston Melton Mowbray, Drive Bury St Edmunds and Bristol Street Motors Sunderland) were handpicked out of more than 1,500 Vauxhall and Opel retailers in 20 markets spanning the UK and Europe. In addition, Drive Motor Retail Limited, was named as one of three leading dealer groups. The winners showed outstanding performance in customer satisfaction, sales results and profitability.

The awards took place in Split, Croatia. Speaking at the event, Vauxhall/Opel CEO Michael Lohscheller said: “The winning dealers and their employees deliver extraordinary achievements every day. They are the ones connecting with our customers, they are the ambassadors for our innovative automobiles.

“That is precisely why customer satisfaction is such an important criterion of this award. Such achievements are only possible with a highly motivated team. This team spirit is typical of Vauxhall/Opel – and our customers know it.”
