Old Vehicles

Benfield Motor Group is an independently owned family business founded in Newcastle upon Tyne in 1957.

From modest beginnings Benfield has become one of the largest and well known private companies in the motor retailing market with a chain of franchised dealerships offering sales, service, parts, and bodyshop facilities for new and used cars and commercial vehicles.

In 2011 Benfield launched the 'Enjoy the Journey' brand identity and marketing campaign which is believed to be a motor industry first and is designed to evoke the lifestyle pleasures experienced and associated with the ownership of a car.

We now have over 30 dealerships across the North East of England, Yorkshire, Cumbria and South West Scotland. We represent 16 brands including Alfa Romeo, Audi, Dacia, Ford, Honda, Hyundai, Kia, Lexus, Nissan, Renault, Skoda, Toyota and Volkswagen.

Benfield was recently awarded the Top Privately Owned Business Award for 2011 by NCJ Media, Used Car Expert Award 2011, highly commended in the Automotive Management Dealer Group Award for 2010, and also appears in the Sunday Times HSBC Top track 250 League table.

At Benfield we believe people are at the heart of our business and success and we employ over 1,500 people throughout our dealership network.
