Central Garage, is the Isle of Wight’s leading dealership for Citroen and Subaru vehicles, as well as providing superior after-care and servicing packages.

Founded around 1910, Central Garage started life as a small family bicycle repair shop in the village of Freshwater. In 1971 we took a leap into the automotive business, positioning ourselves as a customer orientated Volvo and DAF dealer. By retaining business character and friendly customer service, along with knowledgeable advice and an unparalleled aftercare service, we were able to cement our position in the marketplace and move to our current home at Riverway, Newport in 1991. Now with a Central Island location, our Citroen franchise was opened followed by the Subaru dealership opening more recently.  

Today, we are the Isle of Wight’s only Citroen and Subaru dealership. We also provide a wide selection of good-quality and competitively priced pre-owned vehicles. Our product ranges have continued to develop and in recent years we have seen the introduction of electric and hybrid vehicles, as well as a growing range of commercial vans suitable for a variety of uses.

As a dealership, we are often commended on our customer service, including our most recent 1st Place Award for ‘Going above and beyond when representing the Motability Scheme’, in the Motability Dealer Awards 2019. We look forward to continuing with our award winning approach to every customer, and maintaining the ethos that Central Garage was built upon.
