isuzu welcomes watts truck & van to uk dealer network

Agricultural workers, urban tradespeople and recreational users of pick-ups in and around the city of Cardiff can now benefit from even greater access to Isuzu’s range of rugged and refined vehicles following the appointment of Watts Truck & Van as an official Isuzu sales, aftersales and service dealer.

Watts, based on Whittle Road on the outskirts of Cardiff city centre, has been trading for 27 years, providing sales and aftersales services to commercial fleet buyers and business users. A dedicated team delivers outstanding customer care and an unrivalled knowledge of the market from its offices and well-equipped workshops.

Visitors to the garage will now be able to test drive the highly-acclaimed Isuzu D-Max, as well as benefit from its dedicated parts and servicing facilities.

“We’re committed to delivering outstanding customer service from our extensive range of sales and aftersales facilities,” commented Simon Griffin, Dealer Principal for Watts Truck & Van. “Over the years we have adapted to meet the requirements of the truck and van industry and always look to offer an unrivalled service – that’s why so many of our customers return. We’re confident that the Isuzu D-Max will be a hit with tradespeople, recreational users and municipal operators throughout Cardiff and South Glamorgan.”

William Brown, General Manager of Isuzu UK, said: “We’re delighted to have Watts Truck & Van as part of the Isuzu network. They join 18 months after the launch of the Isuzu D-Max, a pick-up that raises the bar for refinement, performance and efficiency in the sector.  Backed by Isuzu’s pioneering, five-year / 125,000-mile warranty, we believe the pick-up will appeal to a broad range of buyers who visit the showroom in Cardiff.”

The Isuzu D-Max is available in three body styles – single, extended and double cab – with prices starting from £14,499 (CVOTR) for the entry-level single cab 4x2 rising to £21,999 (CVOTR) for the range-topping Isuzu D-Max Utah Auto. All new Isuzu pick-ups are available with the company’s pioneering, five-year / 125,000-mile warranty. The Isuzu D-Max is fitted with a super-efficient 2.5-litre twin-turbo diesel engine, producing 163 PS and 400 Nm of torque, able to tow a class-leading 3.5-tonnes (braked) while still returning fuel economy of 38.2 mpg (combined), and is available with a six-speed manual or five-speed automatic transmission.
