Glyn Hopkin Honda Colchester has won a prestigious ‘Dealer of the Year’ award, securing the ‘Most Improved’ accolade after rising 119 places in Honda’s national dealer rankings. Hundreds of Honda’s dealer representatives gathered recently for an awards ceremony at the Natural History Museum in Kensington, London. However, the celebrations didn’t stop there as the Glyn Hopkin Honda Chelmsford branch followed right behind in second place in the same category, after rising 113 places.
The criteria and standards for Honda’s Dealer of the Year awards were enhanced for 2015, with each category being judged for the first time on performance over a full 12-month period. Only by maintaining a high performance throughout the year did Glyn Hopkin Honda Colchester and Chelmsford rank so highly.
Fraser Cohen, Managing Director of Glyn Hopkin, one of the leading automotive dealer groups in the South-East, accepted the award from Phil Webb, Head of Cars for Honda UK, on behalf of the Colchester’s dedicated team.
Fraser commented: “I know how hard everyone at the dealership has worked to earn this award and each and every one of them should be extremely proud of the contribution they have made. Being ranked amongst the top Honda dealerships in the UK is an amazing achievement, and our customers are the key beneficiaries.”
2015 has seen the entire Honda range refreshed, renewed and become stronger than ever, helping to grow sales in the UK’s competitive marketplace. The Jazz was revealed as Carbuyer’s most reliable car of 2015, the 2015 Civic Tourer set a new Guinness World Record™ for fuel efficiency, the new Civic Type R became the world’s fastest front wheel-drive car, the HR-V won the 2015 What Car? reader award, making it the most eagerly anticipated car of the year, and the updated CR-V retained its crown as the world’s best-selling SUV.
With a raft of technologically and environmentally advanced products due to launch in 2016, Honda’s growth is set to continue. New models include the Clarity Fuel Cell saloon, which emits only pure water, and the eagerly anticipated NSX supercar. 2016 will also see the first glimpses of an all-new Civic, due in 2017, which will be exported around the world from the company’s Swindon plant.
