About Car Dealer Magazine

Car Dealer Magazine is the only glossy, A4 monthly magazine for the motor trade, but with an emphasis on fun.

We think business-to-business titles can be a bit boring, so every month we aim to produce a magazine that’s interesting to read.

Working in the motor trade is great fun, so why should what you read about it be any different? Every month we mix the coolest cars, interesting news with features that help you make more money.
