What's the news?
Toyota Liffey Valley will open a new showroom this week, which has been described as 'state of the art' by Dealer Principal Tom Staunton. Tom, who has more than 30 years' experience in the Irish automobile trade, is opening the new premises just off the N4 at the Liffey Valley shopping centre. Toyota Liffey Valley will create 40 new jobs within sales, aftersales and administrative roles. The11 automobile showroom will facilitate Toyota's 2017 range including the new Toyota C-HR, Toyota's full range of hybrid models as well as its new Proace and Hilux commercial vehicles.
A new concept for a Toyota dealership, Liffey Valley integrates the sales and service business by wrapping the service workshop around the showroom. Encompassing 3,000 square metres over two floors, the new showroom features Toyota's 'new Retail Concept' and is claimed to "offer customers an immersive experience, encompassing a combination of physical, human and digital touch points which will guide the customer through the showroom."
Out back, there's a 14-bay workshop, which can be viewed by curious service customers, featuring pre-NCT and inspection bays along with dedicated 'Express Servicing' bays to provide faster turnarounds. There's also a 'Business Lounge' where customers who are using the one-hour Express Service can connect to the internet and keep working while their automobile's in for work.
Dealer Principal Tom Staunton states: "I am truly excited about opening this state of the art showroom and look forward to welcoming many new and existing Toyota customers to Toyota Liffey Valley with exceptional new models such as the C-HR. I believe that Toyota Liffey Valley is the perfect representation to showcase Toyota's extensive range of hybrid vehicles as well as the entire Toyota passenger and commercial vehicle line-up.
Steve Tormey, Chief Executive at Toyota Ireland commented: "I am delighted to welcome Tom Staunton and his team at Liffey Valley to the Toyota Dealer Network which will showcase the exceptional quality of Toyota. Located at the Liffey Valley motor mall, the dealership combines the latest Toyota automotive technology, such as our range of hybrid vehicles, with an unrivalled customer experience. On behalf of Toyota Ireland, we wish Tom and his team every success".
