Car Dealer Magazine

Car Dealer Magazine


CAR DEALER MAGAZINE is the only glossy, monthly magazine for the motor trade. Launched in February 2008, the magazine has carved a niche in the motoring trade press as a business publication that throws a light on the fun side of the car sales arena while reporting on the key automotive topics in detail.

Packed with interesting and entertaining features every month, Car Dealer mixes business messages with the lighter side of the industry to create a must-have monthly magazine that dealers love reading.

Our readers tell us they enjoy Car Dealer so much that they take it home with them to read – we like to think if they’re taking their work home with them we’re doing something right!

Car Dealer is distributed to 12,000 dealers across the UK and is backed up by a popular website too.

Car Dealer also offers a free iPad App which is subscribed to by more than 7,000 dealers – taking our total monthly readership in print and digital to 19,000. That’s by far and away the largest motor trade publication in the UK.

Car Dealer hosts the biggest Used Car Awards ceremony in the industry every December. Hosted by TV’s Mr Wheeler Dealer, Mike Brewer, the event was attended by more than 600 dealers in 2015. Hosted at The Brewery, London, the event has become an annual celebration of the vital part of the car industry every year.

In 2014 Car Dealer launched CDX – a huge automotive industry Expo at Silverstone. Held every year this event brings together thousands of dealers and motor trade suppliers in Expo halls for conferences, networking, workshops and key note speeches.

The magazine also hosts an annual Car Dealer Power awards event at the top of the Spinnaker Tower in Portsmouth. This is where our readers vote for their favourite suppliers and we mark the very best with a glittering awards ceremony. The much-coveted gongs get more competitive every year.

Car Dealer has a thriving community of readers online too. The website enjoys impressive visitor numbers every day, while there’s an active Forum, a popular Twitter feed and an entertaining YouTube channel.
