We are looking forward to joining in the fun and having the chance to show off our fantastic range of cars to the good people of Stoke on Trent and for the very 1st time every model in our range will be on show.
"In this day and age everyone is looking for value for money and this is an area where Kia excel especially bearing in mind our award winning 7 year warranty on all new and Kia Approved Used Cars and the fantastic finance offers available."
Peter Wright, Sales and Marketing Director Motiva, added: " I think that this is a fantastic opportunity to promote brand awareness for M - Way Vehicle Rentals Limited and the products it provides."
Jonathan Platt of Platts Garage said: "Platts Garage are excited to be involved in this year's Stoke City Motorshow. It's great the motorshow being back at the Britannia Stadium as it is a focal point in the city. We are hoping the Success of the team will filter down to the event making it a great day for everyone.
"We will be bringing cars from all our franchises, Fiat, Alfa Romeo, Jeep, Chrysler, Abarth & Fiat Vans. Showcasing something for everyone including, Luxury 4x4s, Family Friendly Cars and Fuel Efficient super minis. Plus we hope to have a couple of new Models on show the New Jeep Grand Cherokee and Family Friendly Fiat 500L Trekking.
"We love getting out and about at shows. It gives us a chance to get people in our cars, who may not have thought about them previously. Gone are the days of Fiats Rusting, Chryslers being Gas Guzzlers. Now our brands are leading the way with Technological developments selling chassis and engines to the likes of Ford and Vauxhall. Couple this with Italian Style and excellent affordability and it makes for a fantastic range of cars and vans.
"The best thing about this Motorshow is we won't just get to show and tell you how good the cars are but we will have select models on site ready to Test Drive, so you can see for yourself. It's definitely worth coming to say hello and see what we have for you."
