Bristol Street Motors invests £250,000 to bring Peugeot to Sunderland


Bristol Street Motors has invested £250,000 and created at least five new jobs in its latest Sunderland dealership.

Bristol Street Motors Peugeot Sunderland is based on Sunderland Enterprise Park, alongside the existing Vauxhall site. Both will be overseen by General Manager Jass Singh.

As part of the extensive fit-out, the dealership’s interior was fully refurbished and brought up to the latest Peugeot brand standards. The Vauxhall side of the site has also benefitted from significant upgrading.

The dealership offers the full new Peugeot range, with all the popular hatchback, estate, saloon and SUV models including the 108, 2008, 508 and 5008, as well as all hybrid and electric derivatives of the model line-up. The site also offers the latest Peugeot Light Commercial Vehicle (LCV) range, with Partner, Expert and Boxer vans available, plus a great selection of quality-checked used cars.

Bristol Street Motors Peugeot Sunderland also provides an extensive aftersales service with a team of Peugeot trained technicians providing MOTs, services, repairs and parts.

The dealership also offers Motability services. The Motability scheme allows those in receipt of disability benefits to lease a new car that is most suitable for them and their needs.

Jass Singh, General Manager, said: “We’re delighted to bring Peugeot to Sunderland after around five years without representation and offer our customers its fantastic range of cars and vans, including hybrid and electric options.
“Our sales and service teams have undergone extensive training to ensure they are Peugeot experts and can provide the very best help and advice to customers.”
Bristol Street Motors Peugeot Sunderland is the eighth Peugeot franchise in the Group’s portfolio.
