Franchised dealer group, Wessex Garages, has opened a new Nissan dealership in Newport, South Wales.

The group says this showroom, their fourth Nissan dealership, fills a ‘strategic gap’ in its Nissan territory. Their Nissan network now stretches from Cardiff across the Severn estuary to Bristol, and up as far as Gloucester.

Wessex Garages are delighted that the new dealership marks their return to the area after almost a decade.

Managing director Chris Wiseman said: ‘The opening of our Newport Nissan dealership gives us a lovely territory in South Wales and the west of England. We’re very excited to represent Nissan at our Newport Retail Park site.

‘Adding Newport back into our market area is a massive plus for us and links up our territory perfectly.

‘We can’t wait to show customers old and new the great models that Nissan has to offer and we are renowned for our excellent levels of customer service which will be embedded in the dealership.’

Wiseman confirmed that the Newport site was up and running in its temporary facility. Work will start on a new permanent showroom in October.
