- Program is set to offer customers a PEUGEOT model without long-term investment of buying a car
Dubai: In line with PEUGEOT’s customer-centric approach, Swaidan Trading, the exclusive distributor of PEUGEOT in Dubai and the Northern Emirates, announced that it has partnered with Avis, an award-winning car rental company, to offer attractive leasing options to customers in the UAE.
Swaidan Trading is offering attractive one or two-year leasing contracts with the option to extend for a third year, hassle free. The deal will allow customers to lease any PEUGEOT model without the long-term investment of buying a car.
Greg Cottrell, GM of the Automotive Division at Swaidan Trading, commented: “The Covid-19 pandemic has had a significant impact on people across the region. A trend that has emerged as a result of the pandemic is leasing, for those who are looking to drive a brand new car, without the risk of making a long-term commitment. PEUGEOT is delighted to have collaborated with Avis to provide these customers with an alternative option that guarantees a secure means of mobility, while also offering the opportunity to drive a brand new car.”
Through this partnership with Avis, customers can enjoy 30,000 km per year of mileage, with free service and maintenance, registration, and insurance. Customers will even have the option to own the vehicle, or choose a new car at the end of their lease period.
James Luxbacher, GM of AVIS UAE, commented “The global pandemic has accelerated many changes in consumer behavior and pushed individuals to reconsider their mobility choices. Avis has more than 40 years of experience in the UAE helping customers with their leasing requirements, and is positioned to adapt to the changing needs of its clients. Partnering with Swaidan Trading to offer PEUGEOT leases has allowed Avis to provide incredible vehicles backed by one of the best dealerships in the region. Since 2018 some of our highest customer feedback (NPS) scores have been on various PEUGEOT models. The level of standard features, reliability, and driver comfort at an affordable price makes Peugeot one of the best brands in terms of value-for-money in the UAE. We are excited to provide special leasing offers that are sure to delight our mutual customers.”
One model that will be available for customers as part of this partnership is the award-winning Peugeot 508 fastback premium sedan, which was voted as the people’s choice model at the 2020 Middle East Car of the Year Awards. With exceptional styling, exemplary road handling, efficient new engines, and countless technology features, the new 508 has been an incredible success for PEUGEOT, making it a game-changer in the executive sedan segment. It also highlights a quantum leap for the brand in terms of quality and innovation.
PEUGEOT’s customers are at the core of their evolution as a brand, and as such they have taken on numerous customer-centric approaches since the start of the pandemic, offering stress-free methods to enjoy their models. This includes valet test drive and remote maintenance services aimed at bringing a whole new experience to customers, from purchasing their new car to servicing their current model.
