The development of the new site follows the expansion of the Lifestyle Europe Group which holds five manufacturer franchises including a second Mazda dealership in Crawley.
Waring thanked Lifestyle Europe for investing their faith and money into the Mazda brand. Waring and Marc Matthew, chairman of parent company, Lifestyle Europe, cut the ribbon before champagne was poured out to celebrate.
Mark Spowage, Lifestyle Mazda’s general sales manager, has overall responsibility for both the Horsham and Crawley Mazda sites.
The Horsham showroom has space for seven cars inside the dealership, an aftersales workshop and a parts store. There’s also space outside to display a selection of approved used Mazda cars.
The dealership is situated within the group’s Bishopric complex, not far from Horsham’s town centre. Lifestyle’s Ford dealership continues to trade just as before, the Mazda dealership is located close to the Ford showroom with its multi franchise service workshop.
