Westdrive Kia invests £1m in showroom and workshop facilities

Kia dealership Westdrive in Braintree, Essex, has received a £1m refresh, including a brand new showroom and state-of-the-art aftersales facilities.

Using Kia’s Red Cube architecture, it has doubled the size of its showroom and created 10 new jobs.

The 12-car showroom, located at Galley’s Corner, allows the dealership to showcase a wider range of Kia models.

Extended service reception and customer service areas have been styled ‘to ensure a more comfortable car buying experience’, including free Wi-Fi.

The redevelopment also included a substantial investment in aftersales, with the creation of an 11-bay workshop.

Andy Phillips, dealer principal at Westdrive, commented: “Kia’s continued growth in the UK means that a small showroom space just doesn’t do the brand justice any more.

“We are thrilled to have seen Kia’s popularity rise in the Essex area. It has allowed us to invest in the premises and in staff levels, to provide our customers with the best service and cars on the market.”
