Hyundai’s biggest UK dealership has recently opened for business – called Midland Hyundai, it has just taken over a prime one acre site just two miles from Birmingham city centre, not far from Sutton Coldfield.

Midland Hyundai has an impressive 15 car showroom site on College Road, Kingstanding, as well as space for 45 cars outside. The facility also has an eight bay workshop, and can handle MOTs, batteries and ‘fast fit’ repairs.

As well as the current Hyundai range, the dealership will also offer a comprehensive stock of Hyundai used cars, as well as other used prestige makes.

This is not the first Hyundai dealership the Midland group has – they also operate Midland Garage in Ashby-de-la-Zouche.

Paul Sweetman is the Dealer Principal for the new dealership. He has 20 years experience in car sales, for BMW and Ford, as well as Hyundai. He said: "We are now looking forward to serving the needs of the people of Birmingham, and introducing them to some of the best value cars available in the UK."

Currently 10 staff are employed at the Birmingham site, although they are actively seeking more staff including vehicle technicians.

It took just three months for the Midland Hyundai team to develop the former derelict showroom site to the impressive facility it is today, and they marked the event with a race night attended by more than 100 customers.

Some £1,638 was raised for the Acorn Children’s Hospice. The hugely successful evening culminated with an impressive fireworks display.
