Lookers Chester has opened a state-of-the-art Kia showroom as part of a major new investment.

The new and distinctive high-spec Kia ‘red cube’ building has been carefully designed and constructed to provide an enlarged showroom space and a top-notch customer experience to accommodate the growing number of tech-leading Kia models.
All visitors are welcome to visit the new showroom in the confidence that Covid safety measures remain firmly in place.
