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.”
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.
“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.
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.”
