Tristram European Welcomes ŠKODA

ŠKODA is the latest exciting new addition to the stable of brands at Tristram European.  A brand new, state of the art ŠKODA building on the corner of Wairau Road and Hillside Road is now open, and sits on the same site as Tristram Volkswagen.

For some of us the ŠKODA name is still has some past association with poorly built Eastern European vehicles, but much has changed since then. In the year 2000 the brand became wholly owed by the Volkswagen Group and was relaunched, offering an exceptional range of models. The new generation of ŠKODA vehicles set new standards in design, build quality, and smart features which make these exceptional cars to own and drive. 

Many of you who are familiar with Tristram European will know Penny Thorne, who is now brand manager for the new ŠKODA  dealership. Penny and the Tristram ŠKODA team focus on ‘simply 5 star service’ through a slick, well run operation, in a relaxed environment.  Penny says: “We want our customers to have a leading edge experience that makes them want to drop by to have a coffee at their leisure, after purchasing from us and in between services, and not for any other reason. The ŠKODA brand is offering the perfect range of models and price points to compliment what Tristram has been able to offer in the past, right through to the new ŠKODA Kodiaq - a seven seater SUV starting from $39,990. Perfect for those wishing to purchase a quality, European brand in a completely affordable space.” Tristram European has offered ŠKODA customers servicing for more than six years, so the level of understanding of the ŠKODA product is already very extensive within the team.

Tristram European is privately owned and operated by Mark Hayward & Wayne Leach (Winger Group). Mark’s passion is to offer his customers what he calls ‘The Hotel Experience’ which is where the concept of having a concierge onsite all began. 

Tristram European is offering an amazing grand opening package - any new ŠKODA purchases come with a free Tristram service plan and a $1000 Federation Clothing Voucher. This offer is available through until 31st July 2017. Keeping it local and supporting local talent, Tristram ŠKODA have partnered with North Shore based streetwear label Federation Clothing; providing a younger, fresher approach for ŠKODA buyers.  Look out for the Federation x Tristram ŠKODA Octavia wagon on the streets, and parked out front of Federation in Takapuna!
