Car Timeline
The Vantage History Timeline Established in 2003 in Yorkshire, Vantage Motor Group has worked hard to achieve impressive success, much like the brands we represent
    2003 Managing Director, Mark Robinson, founds Meridian Motor Group in the heart of Yorkshire with Toyota Knaresborough and York, then later acquiring Bridlington.
    2007 Mark acquires three more Toyota sites in Lancashire, trading under the name Vantage. This is where Meridian Motor Group gains its trading name as Vantage Motor Group.
    2010 The Vantage Toyota Centre located in Bridlington relocates to it's current location in Scarborough due to more space for expansion.
    2013 Vantage celebrates its 10 year Anniversary
    June 2013 Vantage acquires four sites in the Midlands, a new region for the company, with three Toyota centres in Birmingham, Solihull and Tamworth as well as a Lexus centre also located in Birmingham. Vantage decides to experiment with another brand by adding Kia Scarborough to the family.
    July 2013 Honda is the 5th brand to join Vantage Motor Group with the addition of a dealership in Barnsley.

    July saw a 10th Toyota centre join the Vantage group as they acquired a site in Grange-over-Sands with the hope of expansion across the Lake District.
    December 2013 The end of 2013 didn't slow down for the team at Vantage as acquisitions kept coming. We were happy to add another manufacturer to our portfolio with Citroën in Morecambe. Vantage now operates for six brands over 16 sites in the UK.
    2015 The final pieces of the puzzle were added in the early months of 2015. With February being the welcome month of another Honda dealership, located in Bradford, and March seeing Vantage Motor Group take a leap out of their comfort zone once more adding their first ŠKODA branch in Morecambe.
    January 2016 Vantage expanded its fast-growing portfolio of dealerships to 22 across the North and Midlands with the acquisition of Lexus Leeds, Toyota Leeds and Toyota Wakefield. These sites take the total number of Vantage Toyota dealerships to 12, making it one of the largest Toyota groups in the UK.
    October 2016 Ending 2016 in style, Vantage added another Citroën dealership to their portfolio with the acquisition of Citroën Blackpool at the end of October.

    This takes Vantage Motor Group's extensive range to include twelve Toyota, one Hyundai, two Lexus, two Citroën, two Honda, two Kia and a ŠKODA dealership.
    March 2018 2018 saw Vantage strengthening their position in the Midlands, with the acquisition of both Toyota and Lexus Wolverhampton. This brings the count of Lexus sites to three and Toyota to a grand total of 13 centres.
    January 2019 In early 2019 Vantage are looking forward to welcoming their fourth Lexus Centre, Lexus Preston. This will give Vantage the opportunity to introduce the Lexus Brand within the Preston area.
