Late in 2017, Pentland Jaguar moved from their premises in Glasgow Road, Edinburgh into their new showroom and workshop at Edinburgh East, Whitehill Road, Fort Kinnaird, Edinburgh, EH15 3HR. Telephone: 0131 3415837
The new building is part of the JLR ARCH system and shared with Land Rover.
Rob Jenner and Letitia Mace went along to have a look at the new showroom and workshop.
Brand new, impressive and futuristic from the outside. This is from the dealership car park, as the two brands were moving into the building and it was as yet unfinished, it was not possible to take pictures of the front of the building at that time. I will return for more pictures in due course.
|Our X358, now almost 10 years old, looks quite out of place among all the new Jaguar models in the dealership car park.|
The showroom is split equally down the middle, with Jaguar cars on one side and Land Rover on the other …… but we were only interested in the Jaguar side!
|An impressive rest area forms the divide between the two marques, and with ample refreshments available free of charge, there is plenty of scope to read, relax, or catch up on work, while your vehicle is being serviced or repaired.|
Shop for parts, accessories or gifts for your Jaguar (or Land Rover).
Presenting a far tidier visage, this new concept keeps offices for the running of the dealership out of site upstairs, with plenty of attractive meeting areas in the showroom, where potential customers can discuss their car buying needs with sales staff.
Inside the workshop, one side is devoted to Jaguar and the other to Land Rover, although, as you can see, this principle is quite flexible!
I got a shot of these fancy new car hoists, which disappear into the ground, before the cars moved in!
|Parts for both marques are issued as required from a new state of the art dedicated parts department.|
Working on the same ‘Just in Time’ basis as the factory production line, parts ordered are processed immediately; despatched and delivered to the dealership through the night, arriving in time for the next morning before work begins!
It is much better placed than the previous premises, being next door to Fort Kinnaird Retail Park and in amongst all the luxury car manufactures, such as, Maserati, Lamborghini, Ferrari, Bentley, and Porsche!
