Lookers Mercedes-Benz takes award

Lookers Mercedes-Benz Kent has been named Mercedes-Benz Retailer of the Year 2017.

Lookers Mercedes-Benz Kent, which operates from dealerships in Maidstone, Tonbridge, Ashford and Canterbury, saw an increase of 14.4% in the sale of new cars in 2017, with similar double digit growth in the sale of used cars. The judges were also impressed by an eight per cent growth in aftersales, as well as its efforts in achieving the highest level of customer retention and satisfaction in the UK.

The figures form part of a larger success story for Mercedes-Benz, which has reported record global sales for 2017, while record sales in the UK last year saw 179,000 Mercedes-Benz cars registered, representing a seven per cent market share.

Lookers chief executive Andy Bruce said, ‘We’re very proud of our excellent partnership with Mercedes Benz, so to receive Mercedes-Benz Retailer of the Year is a tremendous honour. Our team in Kent have shown just how talented and hard-working they are and I want to offer them my personal congratulations and thanks for this fantastic achievement.’

The Mercedes-Benz Retailer of the Year awards were held at the O2, London, and were hosted by television personality and X Factor host Dermot O’Leary.
