The automotive industry has seen an increase in new car registrations with the increasing trend for Personal Contract Purchase (PCP) deals recently.

Manufacturers are also experiencing increased targets, leaving it harder for them to earn their bonus income. These factors have led to motor retailers facing increased challenges in order to retain margins.
