Infiniti opens new Glasgow centre

Japanese performance automotive brand Infiniti has launched a new centre in Glasgow.

The centre, which is the first in Scotland and the fourth in the UK - the others being in central London, Reading and Birmingham - shows that the brand is quickly catching up on competition.

The Infiniti Centre Glasgow is centrally located at a distance of two minutes off the M8 at Braehead near the Glasgow Airport, allowing it to cater to a bigger population.

The centre boasts of state-of-the-art workshop facilities, a six-car display area, an alignment bay and the latest wheel-balancing equipments.

Infiniti retail partner MPA Ltd runs the Glasgow centre along with the recently opened Birmingham centre. Two more centres under MPA are due to open at Stockport and Leeds next year.

MPA hopes to add more centres in south and east London, Cambridge, Nottingham, Bristol and Newcastle.

The centres in Reading and at 77 Piccadilly are operated by Infiniti's other retail partner, Rymco UK, which plans to open two more in Chiswick and Hatfield in 2011.

All Infiniti centres promise high customer service, including free car pick-up and delivery within a 150-mile radius.

Infiniti also launched its new model M30d, its first diesel-powered performance saloon, coinciding with the Glasgow centre opening.
