Michael Brown Head of Remarketing for Citroen UK commented "This was an exceptional result at a time when the used market has been under some pressure. The strong attendance and the confident bidding throughout the sale underlines the desirability of the Citroen range and demonstrates the commitment of our dealer network towards used cars. To sell 360 vehicles in one sale on one day is exceptional, particularly when conditions are getting tougher."
BCA National Account Manager, Paul Dunn added "This high profile event was one of the largest closed sales staged by BCA this year. The 100% conversion and strong CAP performance underlines that Citroen is building on its reputation for desirability, value for money and quality across the product range."Published 1 June 2011
