New Land Rover showroom opened by The Co-Op Motor Group

The Co-Op Motor Group has opened a £1m new showroom for Land Rover and Range Rover in Leeds.

The group claims the Farnell Leeds dealership on Whitehouse Street, its third for the 4x4 brand, has the largest Land Rover indoor showroom in the UK.

The development has created eight new jobs and has indoor space for more than 25 new cars, plus a separate indoor showroom for approved used vehicles.

It includes a customer lounge with TV, wi-fi, refreshment facilities and a children's play area with Sony PS3.

The showroom is amongst the first to deliver the Range Rover Ultimate, the most luxurious off-roader yet from the car manufacturer, boasting extras such as i-Pads integrated into special holders behind the front seats and a drinks cabinet, all set into a bespoke wood and leather interior.

Jatinder Aujla, group operations manager, said: "Farnell was one of the world’s first ever Land Rover dealers and now we have this magnificent facility to add to our sites in Guiseley and Bradford.

"2011 has been very successful for Farnell and next year we aim to deliver more than 1,200 vehicles from this site, making it one of the most successful Range Rover/Land Rover dealerships in the UK.

"We are already one of the top three UK Land Rover dealerships for aftersales care, but our intention is to continue improving until Farnell Leeds is recognised as providing the best all-round customer service in the UK."

The dealership was officially opened by Land Rover's global brand director John Edwards at the end of November.

Land Rover's latest move into the mainstream comes this year with the launch of the Discovery Sport, with prices expected to start from less then £30,000.

This model will play a key role in driving renewed growth, which slowed to 2.8% last year after sales growth of nearly 50% since 2011, thanks mainly to the Range Rover Evoque, the brand's fastest selling model ever.

Future model growth will be based around three key pillars of Range Rover, Discovery and Defender, with each family featuring a unique characteristic.
