The Test Drive Event Edges Closer

Looking for your next new car can be time consuming; Leslies Motors know better than anyone. Take it from us, we’ve got six of world’s most loved brands in five different showrooms across the Isle of Wight.

It often means a full day, if not two, visiting different showrooms. You meet different salesmen, you get a different price for your part-exchange, and you leave with more figures than a puppeteer. Wouldn’t it be helpful if the brands came together to be compared side-by-side? Well, it’s funny you should say that… Leslies Motors annual Test Drive Event brings all six of our manufacturers together and forms a pop-up showroom at Newclose Cricket Ground, Newport (PO30 3BD) with over 40 models.

A representative from each of the brands will be on hand to answer all your questions, as well as offer test drives, appraise part-exchanges, and discuss the very best offers. Some models include generous deposit contributions from manufactures, such as the Honda Civic ‘Sport’ range. Others include low rates of finance, like Suzuki’s 0% APR on the sporty Suzuki Swift and new Suzuki Vitara SUV.

Director of Leslies Motor, Graham Vanassche; “the Test Drive Event at Newclose is one of the highlights of the Leslies Motors calendar. Our customers have always loved this event. Its unique, its practical, and you can compare and drive any model that takes your fancy all in one day. The pavilion is buzzing with customers, everybody is in a good mood from their test drive in the newest models, and as a business we offer generous part-exchange offers on the day”.

It’s is also a chance to see the latest new releases, including the all-new self-charging hybrid Toyota Corolla & Corolla Touring Sports. As well as the tiny thoroughbred off-road Suzuki Jimny, the latest Honda CRV All-Wheel Drive Hybrid, and winner of this year ‘Car Of The Year’, the all-electric Kia e-Niro.

There will also be event debuts from the all-new Kia Proceed ‘GT’ shooting-brake, the latest generation of Hyundai’s flagship Santa Fe All-Wheel Drive, and gossip on the grapevine suggests that the all-new Mazda 3 may make an appearance before the official Mazda launch.

They often say; “Time is Money”. So the annual Test Drive Event is also the perfect opportunity for local businesses. Visiting showroom after showroom for your next company car or pool car could be better spent leading your business. Leslies Motors employs the Island’s only multi-franchise Business Specialist, Richard Winter, who specialises in businesses needs and the latest lease offers.

For commercial customers Leslies will present the legendary Toyota Hilux Pick-up & award-winning Toyota Proace Van.

The Leslies Motors annual Test Drive Event takes place 10am-5pm on the 15th, 16th, and 17th May at Newclose Cricket Ground, Newport. The event is free to attend, and includes free parking and refreshments.
