In keeping pace with Jaguar Land Rover’s model roll-out over the coming years, the new facility space was also designed to accommodate the expanded line-up from both brands, as well as future editions expected to join their range. This includes the all-new Defender and electric vehicles.
In a first-of-its-kind automotive design experience offered by Alfardan Premier Motors to auto enthusiasts, customers looking for the ultimate in bespoke customisation of their new vehicles will be invited to enjoy the use of the new Personalisation Studio to add personal touches to their new vehicles, and to make use of the state-of-the-art configuration tables and accessories’ walls.
Alfardan Premier Motors will also be dedicating a showroom for approved pre-owned vehicles from Jaguar and Land Rover, designed against rigorous Qatari servicing and maintenance quality standards adopted by both brands, and offering pre-owned motorists the same peace of mind they would enjoy when purchasing a new model.
Along with dedicated spaces for a wide collection of accessories, the showroom also houses a relaxing lounge area for customers that invites them into the Alfardan Premier Motors community and world throughout their showroom experience.
Customers will also get to see a range of Jaguar Land Rover premium lifestyle branded goods and merchandise that have been carefully designed with the same meticulous attention to detail that goes into designing and developing Jaguar Land Rover range of vehicles.
When the time comes to take the keys, the facility has dedicated private bays for the vehicles’ handover to customers.
