In New Zealand, car dealerships have an interior area where a few new cars are displayed. Outside the yard is full of more new cars and second-hand ones. There is no parking on site and often none on the street in front. If you want to go there, a parking space has to be found nearby.
This new dealership in Auckland, NZ has a unique look about it (see below). It's located at premises that could be a furniture shop or similar. Convenient parking is plentiful outside the door and there are no vehicles for sale outside.
The customers are viewed as guests, who are welcome to walk around in a relaxed atmosphere. The air-conditioned showroom can accommodate as many as 40 vehicles indoors with ample space to wander around them (as you can observe below).
The service centre area is New Zealand's largest, with 20 hoists and all the technical gizmos that go along with modern car diagnostics.
As someone who has always felt that such a major purchase as a car isn't made as convenient and inviting an experience as it should be, this is the sort of dealership that I'd warm to. Dealers in smaller towns could do similar but on a more modest scale.
