News: NEW MITSUBISHI DEALERSHIP OPENS IN BATH

I think it’s fair to say that Mitsubishi caught a lot of manufacturers on the hop with their outstanding Outlander PHEV. For MotorMartin the Outlander PHEV can be looked at as being the first vehicle to have made owning an electric car a genuine possibility for consumers, especially those that want an electric car without the range anxiety usually associated with battery power. No doubt partly due to the necessary expansion that being successful brings about, MotorMartin is pleased to announce that a new Mitsubishi dealership has opened in Bath as the brand continues to build on the growth of … Continue reading News: NEW MITSUBISHI DEALERSHIP OPENS IN BATH

Dacia Duster: You see a lot of those about don’t you?

Much like the excitement of the cinema going public back in 1998 when Armageddon and Deep Impact were both released in the summer blockbuster season with the same theme of a global killer asteroid racing toward the Earth, MotorMartin has followed up the FIAT Panda 4×4 1.3 MultiJet Diesel test http://motormartin.com/2016/01/30/fiat-panda-1-3-multijet-4×4/ with the Dacia Duster 4×4 Laureate.
