About Us

History of Hilton Suzuki

Suzuki was founded in 1993 in Bishop’s Stortford when I moved down from Peterborough with a couple of colleagues to set up the old ‘Wood and Krailing’ business at ‘Gates Corner’ in the town. The current Hilton Suzuki in Bishop’s Stortford is a different business at a different site, but you get the same old friendly and fair service from all our staff.

We opened at Clapham in Bedford in June 2009 following the closure of Thompsons (formerly Reliance Garage) earlier in that year. We were pleased to be able to attract back many knowledgeable members of staff who had worked there previously, and it is satisfying to see so many previous customers coming back to the garage again.

The Suzuki range has changed completely from those original days in 1993, when we were best known for our bouncy and quirky SJ410! We still have a small 4-wheel drive in the Suzuki Jimny of course, but the introduction of the Suzuki Vitara followed by the S-Cross really put us on the map as far as luxury 4-wheel drive cars are concerned.

We now have a much broader range of cars suiting everyone’s needs, starting with the cheapest to run Suzuki Celerio. Another car in our range which has been re-engineered and improved beyond recognition is the Suzuki Swift – in existence back in 1993 and now, very deservingly, our best-seller (along with the scorching hot Suzuki Swift Sport). Our Suzuki Ignis is based on the same under-lying platform as the Swift, with differing bodywork and a higher seating position.

To complete our range, we have the fashionable crossover vehicle known as the Suzuki SX4 S Cross– the best of both worlds with some variants being 4-wheel drive and others being 2-wheel drive, super-practical family cars.

I am so proud of our products, and proud that Hilton Suzuki has a predominance of committed, long-serving and friendly staff at Bishop’s Stortford and Bedford. These are the two main reasons why customers keep coming back to us, time after time.

Why not test-drive our business as well as our cars – you’ll find us on the Herts and Essex border and in Bedfordshire – just see the maps or give us a call

I was happy with the service at Hilton Suzuki because I found the staff to be so friendly and approachable. A lot of car salesmen have a manner that is very off-putting to me. My husband and I both found the two salesmen we met on our two visits prior to buying refreshingly "normal", not pushy or cocky. Well done Hilton Suzuki Spellbrook. When my new Swift needs replacing I will return.

Mrs S
