Alternations to our Opening Hours

Our Service and Sales Departments remain open until 31 March. The opening hours have changed and how we conduct business, but we are still here to help. Like all businesses, we have been closely monitoring the impact that COVID-19 is having on our business, our colleagues and customers. We are very much respectful of the latest Government message that we all need to play our part to protect the most vulnerable and ensure that the NHS has the ability to care for the increased number of patients. Motorvogue have therefore decided to operate with minimal staff until the 31 March to enable our customers to have the essential safety works completed on their vehicles through our service department, including servicing, MOTs and repairs. It is more important than ever that we can support and assist Key workers in achieving their roles, and we sincerely thank our colleagues who are working with us to remain open to do so. Our Sales showrooms are no longer open to the public, however customers who have recently purchased a car will be able to collect these on an arranged appointment, when we will ensure that no other visitors will be with us at the same time. All of our Used cars can be seen on our website as well as our New car offers, and we will be available on the telephone or via our website contact form for further details on our vehicles and availability. Once safe to do so, we will once again offer our Test Drive at Your Home service and the option to have a purchased vehicle delivered to you for £99 within 150 miles, and nationwide for £199. Over the coming week, the Motorvogue Team will work together to care for our customers and look after each others well-being. This is a situation that we have not had to deal with before; we are in uncharted territory and will be learning and changing as the situation evolves. We will close on the 1st April and will communicate our future decisions as we adapt to the situation. As a minimum we are hoping to offer breakdown support to vehicles which are recovered even after this date, with secure parking for their vehicle and the loan of a car to keep our customers mobile until such time as their vehicle can be repaired. Contact telephone numbers will be made available as we move to an Emergency Support service for owners of all of the brands we represent, and as advice begins to be more positive we will once again be taking Aftersales Bookings for maintenance, service and MOTs. Please check our website and social media channels for future developments. In the meantime, please take care and we look forward to seeing you again in the near future.

Motorvogue Norwich - Cromer Road, Norwich NR6 6NB

Motorvogue Norwich is Now Open with our multi-franchise showroom bringing five prestigious car marques to the city. The newest Hyundai, Fiat, Jeep, Alfa Romeo and Abarth models are gathered in one convenient showroom which opened on Friday 14th February. Hyundai owners have been without local support since the city’s previous dealer closed back in November. Our extensive new site offers a substantial Hyundai showroom, with all the latest models and manufacturer-approved used cars, plus full parts and service back-up for existing owners. “Hyundai approached us to see if we would take on the Norwich franchise, as we represent them at our Bedford location,” explains Jon Pochin, who has been running Motorvogue since 2008 with his business partner Peter Norman. “Our business model is to operate multi-franchise dealerships to offer customers greater choice – so when Hyundai agreed, the move to Norwich became possible.” Motorvogue began with a single site in Northamptonshire in 1993 and has supplied more than 20,000 cars to satisfied customers across the country. Under Pochin’s stewardship, the firm has expanded to Bedford, and a further location in King’s Lynn. A Norwich showroom makes perfect sense – especially as Pochin was born and raised in Norfolk, worked in the city for many years and still lives here. “As we were recruiting, it was astonishing how many people came forward that I’d worked with before,” he says. “One of the things that’s great about Norfolk is the people. They’re friendly and they’re loyal. We have a brilliant team ready to welcome customers to Cromer Road.” Massive range Motorvogue Norwich will offer the largest range of new cars in the area, as well as more than 600 used vehicles (across the group) in all shapes and sizes. With so much choice, it’s the perfect place to visit for anyone unsure what kind of car they should get next. It’s also ideal for those in receipt of benefits such as the Higher Rate Mobility component of the Disability Living Allowance, the Enhanced Mobility component of the Personal Independence Payment, an Armed Forces Independence Payment or the War Pensioners’ Mobility Supplement, with Motorvogue’s motability specialists ready to assist customers looking to drive a brand-new car every three years on the Motability scheme. The huge range at Motorvogue gives plenty of options, many available with no advance payment.   Going electric? “We are seeing a real change in attitudes to electric vehicles,” Pochin says. “People who were putting off making the switch are starting to consider it. With the latest generations of hybrid and electric cars offering realistic ranges up to 300 miles, they’ve become practical for people in rural communities like those we have in Norfolk.” To help customers decide if an electric vehicle is for them, the new Cromer Road site will feature a dedicated Electric Centre, showing off the range of low and zero-emissions cars. “People need to come down and see the Hyundai Ioniq and Kona hybrid and electric models,” Pochin urges. With more than 30 demonstrators available across the five marques, Motorvogue offers an unrivalled chance to get behind the wheel of what could be the car of your dreams – whether it’s hybrid, electric or a conventional petrol or diesel model.   Great offers To celebrate the opening of Motorvogue Norwich on Cromer Road, the showroom is opening with what Pochin describes as “genuine money-off deals" on models across all five marques. This includes savings of up to 50pc on servicing. “It doesn’t matter whether you’re looking for a first car for your daughter, a seven-seater, a pick-up or an electric vehicle,” says Pochin. “Whatever you need, we will have the right car for you – and at the best price in the market.” Visit us now on Cromer Road, Norwich, NR6 6NB

Motorvogue Set to Open New Showroom in Norwich

Motorvogue Norwich opens on the 14th February with a brand new multi-brand site which will include Hyundai, Alfa Romeo, Jeep, Fiat, Abarth and Fiat Professional at Cromer Road Norwich. This will be the first time that Motorvogue has had an operation in Norwich and will make this one of the largest Motor Groups in the area.  We are proud to open a 7 car Hyundai showroom, following the closure of the previous Hyundai dealership in Norwich which shut the doors at the end of November. Existing Hyundai owners, and those looking to experience the brand will once again be able to do so in Norwich and can utilise this new facility for servicing, maintenance and the purchase of new and used cars. Motorvogue are experienced in the Hyundai brand as we already have a Hyundai showroom at our Bedford location. A separate showroom for Fiat, Abarth, Alfa Romeo and Jeep showroom will also open to complete the initial re-development of the Cromer Road location. In a second phase of development at the site, Alfa Romeo and Jeep will move into a third bespoke showroom. Once again, we already have existing locations offering these brands with Kings Lynn, Bedford and Northampton providing a long standing relationship with the FCA Group.  This is an exciting time for Motorvogue as development of the site has been happening at a remarkable pace. The location on Cromer Road had been vacant for many years, previously a Volvo dealership which closed over 6 years ago, and has seen the derelict structure fall into an awful condition however with a large investment, Motorvogue are changing the future of this site and we are sure that our renovation of the exterior and interior will enhance the view for the local people and those visiting Norwich using one of the main routes into the city along Cromer Road and Reepham Road. Close to the new NDR road around Norwich, and the city centre, access will be ideal for those looking to purchase a new or used vehicle or visiting for servicing and maintenance. As with all of our locations, this new multi-brand site will offer customers a variety of options when buying a new vehicle, so they can test drive and experience a number of cars from various brands to find their perfect car, all in one location, an objective which led to this being the ideal choice for our next showroom development due to the amount of space on offer. Whilst members of our existing team will be moving to the new site, we also require a number of new staff members and we are recruiting. If you would like to join our newest team, please visit the Careers page of our website for more details. Career Opportunities in Norwich

HYUNDAI i10 WINS BEST CITY CAR AT CARGURUS BEST USED CAR AWARDS

Hyundai’s i10 wins the ‘Best City Car’ category in brand new CarGurus UK Best Used Car Awards. CarGurus, a leading online automotive marketplace, has launched the ‘UK Best Used Car Awards’ to recognise the best buys in the used car market across 13 categories. An expert judging panel made up of some of the UK’s most well-respected motoring journalists and road testers selected the winners. In addition to drawing on their extensive experience, the judges used unique CarGurus data insights around areas including stock availability and projected depreciation to pick 2019’s best used cars. Chris Knapman, CarGurus UK Editor, said: “There were several strong contenders in the city car class, but it was the i10 that stood out to our judges as the best buy. That many used i10s are likely to have the balance of the original five-year manufacturer warranty certainly played a part, but there is much more besides to recommend it. Notably, it’s one of the most practical small cars you can buy, as well as being well equipped, and available with one of the better automatic gearboxes in the city car class. As the icing on the cake, CarGurus data shows that the i10 has what are among the best residual values in the class.” The multi-award winning Hyundai i10 is available with a range of convenience and safety equipment such as touchscreen navigation, parking sensors and keyless entry. Ashley Andrew, Hyundai Motor UK’s Managing Director, said: “Our best-selling i10 continues to win awards year after year and we’re delighted that it is still being recognised as a key player in the city car segment. The i10 offers class-leading levels of space, modern design and comprehensive safety and driving assistance technologies. It’s a compelling used car proposition providing excellent value-for-money being so well-equipped and with such strong residual values.” The i10 benefits from Hyundai’s comprehensive owner-transferrable five-year unlimited mileage warranty, with prices starting from £9,325 (on-the-road from new). View our latest offers here

A great weekend at the Motorvogue sponsored Bedford Festival of Motoring and Kite Festival.

Motorvogue were delighted to be the main sponsor of the first Bedford Festival of Motoring which took place last weekend (June 1st & 2nd) along the beautiful Embankment, alongside the Bedford International Kite Festival being held in Russell Park. The event was organised by Bedford Borough Council and was the first festival in the town to embrace all things motoring in the UK, with special displays of vehicles, ultra-modern, luxurious and bizarre, iconic and soon forgotten, motor sport in all their guises, motorcycles and bicycles and commercial, agricultural and military and claasic cars. As the main sponsor for the event, Motorvogue exhibited models from our extensive range available at Interchange Retail Park location, including Fiat, Abarth, Alfa Romeo, Jeep, Hyundai, SEAT and Renault, plus Dacia and Citroen who are located just outside of Bedford in Clapham.  The weather was very kind to us, with the sun shining for most of the weekend.  We were busy throughout the weekend with people interested in looking at our models and finding out more about them. Fortunately there was enough wind for the stunning kites to fly, and the weekend was a great success all round. With many other attractions including a funfair, trade stands, craft marquees and music.
