Welcome to the first edition Newspaper for GWR Kia, the flagship dealership for Kia Motors UK Ltd that is operated by Norton Way Group.
We’re delighted to have the first flagship Kia dealership as part of our portfolio. Customers from far and wide have been attracted by the dealership’s unique and original design, where they can then take advantage of Kia’s seven year warranty and range of excellent deals.
– David Granger, Managing Director
Situated on the Great West Road, Brentford, West London, our flagship opened its doors in August 2016. GWR Kia is a 41,000sqft dealership split into four floors including a multi-level showroom. The highly visible site takes centre stage on the M4 elevated section, which is one of Britain’s busiest commuter roads. The top floor features a stunning, entirely glass façade showcasing the latest Kia models and also includes a 17×4 metre LED display screen.
The ground floor has over 750m² of space and hosts the entire Kia product range, for customers to view and test drive. The café, open to the public, is also located on the ground floor, with seating for over 40 people and is a great space for local businesses to drop by when considering a new fleet deal. Used cars are housed on the 450m² first floor showroom, where customers are able to view the full range of stock both inside and out.
The lower ground floor of GWR Kia boasts seven service and two MOT bays, with space to expand to 15 bays, making GWR Kia a one-stop shop for all things Kia.
We take pride in the level of sustainability at the site, with the energy strategy including low and zero carbon technologies, comprising air source heat pumps, roof mounted solar PVs, water harvesting and LED lights.
Our dealership is managed by Norton Way Group, a car dealership group formed by a management buyout in 1989. Since that time, Managing Director David Grainger, has helped build a portfolio of sites which includes five Letchworth based dealerships. The dealership range consist of manufacturers such as Nissan, Mazda, Honda Cars and Bikes, the first ever Honda UK brand centre located in Chiswick and a specialist Corporate Centre in Bedfordshire. The Group is now controlled by Marubeni Corporation subsidiary, Marubeni Auto Investment (UK) Limited.
