Auto retailer Inchcape has opened what’s been billed as the UK’s largest Volkswagen showroom to date. The multi-million pound development, located off the A4 in West London, has already been given ‘flagship’ status by the OEM and brings together operations that were previously run on two separate sites.

Capable of displaying up to 90 new and used cars, the new premises on Capital Interchange Way, Brentford, extends over four floors with full sales, aftersales, service and repair services offered by a team of around 70 staff.

Two floors are dedicated to ‘Das WeltAuto’, with 30 pre-owned cars located on each level. Web-enabled touchscreens allow customers to search Inchcape’s 2,000-strong nationwide stock of used Volkswagen vehicles. The new facility, built on a prime 1.6-acre site to the west of central London, also boasts a 28-bay service department.

Commenting on the facility, Director of Volkswagen UK, Alex Smith, said: “West London Volkswagen sends a very clear message that the brand here in the UK is continuing to gear up for growth.

“Opening the largest Volkswagen Retailer site in the country in such a high profile location, with the support of Inchcape, is not only good news for customers in that area who will now have a state-of-the-art facility on their doorstep, it also points to the ongoing strength of Volkswagen in the UK.”
