Time for a quick round of Golf...
It was an early start
for the Luffield Sales Team as we visited our friends at Charnwood
Forest Golf Club.
Our annual sponsorship of the May Medal has always proved popular but
the 6.30am start to make sure we are set up on time
is a challenge!
As usual the members were very welcoming (despite the fact that we seem
to have brought rain with us for the last 2 years!) and there was a lot
of interest in the New Citroen Models that we took for the display.
Despite the odd shower of rain the level of Golf was excellent as were
the Bacon Cobs cooked by Jenny from Fairway Catering!
We would like to thank everyone that took part in the day and hope our
partnership with this fantastic Golf Club continues for many years to

the final collection once the car has been completed. The video is then

carried out and explained.

The Luffield Sales Team Triumph Again...
The Sales Team at Luffield Cars have again
won the title of Sales Team of the Year for the Central Region at the
National Citroen Dealer Excellence Awards.
Having secured the title in 2011 and 2012 the
Citroen Dealership located on Belton Road in Loughborough strived
throughout the year to try and make it three in a row.
The Excellence Awards programme recognises and
rewards the most successful individuals and dealerships within the Citroen
Dealer Network. The success is primarily based on the Customer
Satisfaction Score achieved by the dealership over the previous twelve
months, but other key measurements are also included to help work out who
is the best of the best.
“Although we were able to
see the monthly results, the final scoring was kept secret until the award
evening” said Dealer Principle, Paul McNeil. “We knew that we were one of
the finalists, but with such a high standard achieved by other dealers in
the network, we couldn’t be sure we had won until it was announced”
The awards were hosted by
comedian and ventriloquist, Nina Conti, at a
glittering Gala dinner held at the exclusive
Grove Hotel in Hertfordshire. The Circus themed evening included displays
by acrobats and jugglers and culminated in a breath taking fire routine.
The award was presented to
the Luffield Sales Team by Bek Hassan, Citroen UK Sales Director, who
described Luffield’s outstanding performance as exceptional.

Linda Jackson, Citroën UK’s Managing Director, added; “We’re absolutely delighted that the latest addition to the Picasso family - an enduring range that continues to win the hearts and minds of both public and press - has been recognised in these prestigious awards. “At Citroën we are committed to creating family vehicles that are not only practical, versatile and thoughtfully designed, but also stand out in terms of styling and creative technology. We believe the New Grand C4 Picasso, with best-in-class interior space, striking exterior lines and record levels of fuel and CO2 efficiency, achieves all of those credentials with flying colours.

|Two New DS3's for Hartleys
Local estate and lettings agents Hartleys, have
just taken delivery of two new white Citroen DS3 super mini’s
from us and both cars which have been uniquely branded with Hartleys
unique Lettings Division branding. The eye catching design has been
created and fitted to the cars by local signs specialist Simon Holden of
“id-signs and printing”.
The New Citroen’s will soon be a familiar sight as they zip around the
regions core towns of Loughborough, Coalville, Ashby de la Zouch and the
surrounding areas. The introduction of the new branded fleet is part of
an ongoing brand development which started with the introduction of
their new corporate identity back in 2009.
Gary Hartley, founder and Senior Partner of Hartleys Estate & Lettings
Agents in 1995, commented “The property market has always been hugely
dynamic and whilst Hartleys is one of the longest established estate
agent brands in our core area, it is important that we remain fresh and
relevant to today’s home buyers and sellers. Well known for embracing
change, our forward-thinking and innovative attitude is designed to
offer a professional and efficient service on a more friendly level and
our choice of the Citroen DS3 as our company car is just one more
example of this as it is so economical, yet large enough to accommodate
customers in comfort and environmentally friendly, not to mention being
huge fun to drive.”
Rob Park, Business Centre Manager with Luffield, said “The Citroen
Estate Agent’s program is specifically designed to meet the needs of the
modern agent. The cars come installed with a TrafficMaster Dynamic
Colour Touchscreen Satellite Navigation unit. This not only provides
real time navigation for the driver that will divert them around
incidents in their path, but also provides a stolen vehicle tracking
service and a 24 hour P/A facility which is particularly helpful in
providing peace of mind for the agent as they often work alone and in
remote locations. I really do believe that the DS3’s trendy and quirky
image will help to promote the Hartley brand, especially with its eye
catching graphics. Luffield have been delighted to be able to supply
these “Dynamic Chic” DS3 cars to Hartleys Estate Agents as our core
business values are to promote the Citroen brand and our services in our
