Dublin, OH (PRWEB) December 20, 2012
Crown Automotive Group, a leading national automotive dealer group, today announced the opening of the all new Crown Fiat of Dublin studio. The full-service Fiat dealership, located at 5105 Post Road in Dublin, is now greeting customers for sales, service and parts for new and pre-owned vehicles. Planning and construction have taken place over the past two years and the doors opened for business on December 15. Crown Fiat of Dublin is proud to offer the manufacturer's outstanding line of stylish and practical vehicles to area residents.
Crown Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram Dublin is Central Ohio's number one Chrysler dealership, and Crown Automotive Group was offered the Fiat dealership in 2011 when Fiat re-entered the U.S. market after a 20 year absence. Construction of the new stand-alone dealership began in July of this year and was completed by the first of December. The building occupies over 12,000 square feet, including sales, service and parts. Over $3 million was invested in the new facility and work was completed by Renier Construction. Combined, Crown Dublin dealerships provide over 150 jobs for community members, and the Fiat dealership will add about 15 new employees to that number.
Marc Wigler, general manager of Crown Dublin, commented, "Fiat is more than a safe, fuel efficient small vehicle. Fiats are fun to drive. In fact they are a blast to drive. They are also very personal, the color an owner chooses, the look, the accessories are very reflective of the owner. It's also true that Fiats are a great value for the money, starting at well under $20,000. However, I think most people choose Fiats because they are fun; they look fun; they're fun to drive and they're stylish. We have been in the Dublin market for many years and I think our customers will really appreciate this great Italian brand. We will also be sure to help each owner pronounce the vehicle name, 500, in Italian as the 'cinquecento'."
Fiat studios and vehicles reflect modern, Italian design, with a very European look and feel. In addition, the dealership offers the Fiat sales model that follows closely with the European method of providing shoppers detailed customization options for new vehicles and guaranteeing delivery within 30 to 60 days. This "build your own" method ensures that shoppers receive the exact vehicle they desire, completely unique to each customer's needs. Fiat literally offers hundreds of customization options, including colors, trims, graphics and more.
Currently 60 vehicles are available at the dealership. All Fiat 500 models, including the Pop, Lounge, Sport (hatchbacks and cabriolets for all three), Abarth, and Sport Turbo are available. In addition, the 500L, a larger version of the Sport Turbo, will be available in 2013. Crown Fiat also anticipates adding the luxury brand Alfa Romeo in the future.
A formal grand opening will be held in the spring of 2013. More event details will be provided in advance and all area community members and media will be invited to attend.
