ISUZU SMASH ALL RECORDS
PICK-UP sales are booming in Northern Ireland, and 2016 has been confirmed as Isuzu’s best ever year in NI. Their class-leading D-max sales rose a massive 64% on 2015’s previous record performance, virtually triple the sector growth rate. The brand has now enjoyed four straight years of phenomenal growth here.
“We’re delighted, and plan to grow again in 2017” said John Barr, Isuzu’s Crumlin-based 2016 Dealer of the Year. “Every NI Isuzu dealer had a record year, D-max is undisputed class-leader with 3.5 tonne towing, 125,000 mile/5 year warranty and best in class Contract Hire rates. Order take for 2017 is really strong, our customers happily recommend D-max, there is no better advert than satisfied owners”.
“Landrover owners are buying D-max in record numbers” said Peter Eakin of Eakin Bros in Claudy. “Since Defender ceased production D-max has been the replacement vehicle of choice. Farmers love Isuzu’s UFU scheme – drive your hard deal, then get an extra 4% additional genuine discount up-front off the invoice on the UFU Affinity programme. On any D-max model at any NI dealer”.
“Isuzu only build commercials, we understand that buyers expect their D-max to work as hard as they do” said Michael Turtle of Wilsons Rathkenny. “Businesses enjoy significant benefits choosing a commercial over a car, purchase and running costs and all VAT can be offset against tax. Contract Hire delivers cash flow benefits, low initial rentals and affordable monthly or seasonal payments. We can offer cashback against old equipment to change into a new pick-up.”
“Isuzu D-max comes in three body styles, single, extended or double cabs” said Lisburn-based Des Eastwood. “The basic body is bare back, we offer a range of canopies, lights, towbars and accessories to fit your vehicle out for exactly the job you have in mind. If you tow for hire or reward D-max comes tacho ready, and has satellite navigation and plug-and-play reverse camera upgrades to make life much easier for big mileage users. Compatible ‘phones can Bluetooth to complete your office on the move.”
“First-time buyers report great satisfaction with the economy, reliability and residuals of D-max” said Dungannon dealer Noel Gormley “A number of Past Presidents of the UFU are D-max buyers which speaks volumes for the product. The D-max range encompasses the workhorse steel wheeled pick-up through to range topping Blade with heated seats, bespoke leather and every luxury as standard. Immobilisers are fitted as factory standard equipment.”
