About Us

History of Hilton Suzuki

Hilton 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

Mrs Lynn Isham

I was pleased with Hilton Suzuki and would recommend them because the front of house staff were friendly and approachable, and moreover, the sales manager, Darren, made the whole experience enjoyable. I was behind the wheel of my perfect choice of vehicle in less than a week: the car was serviced, MOT’d and in great mechanical order not to mention a thorough valet clean inside and out with a couple of new mats thrown in as well. As much as I love the Suzuki brand, functionality and ecomony; the dealership is the human interface between manufacturer and buyer ... a full 10/10 for me and will certainly be back again for my next set of wheels. note: The servicing deal with free monthly car-wash is also a fantastic addition

Hilton Suzuki were great because my vehicle went in for mot and passed it but I wasn't happy with the tread on tyres would need replacing both front tyres within couple of months.....although they wasn't too happy about it they did change which I thought was fare so that's why I would recommend. My last purchase was a mini their customer service was poor in comparison.

I'd recommend Hilton Suzuki because Darren the sales person was realy good sales person. Darren told me a lot about the car before I bought it. I test drove the car before hand and found I love the way it drove. A friend has also bought a car from Hilton Suzuki a few years ago and was very happy with her car.

Mr Nick Caunter

I had a great experience at Hilton Suzuki because there was no hard sell when looking at the range of vehicles available. The sales person allowed us to view the cars inside & out on our own so we could make up our own minds on which one we wanted to buy with no pressure. They also allowed us to test drive our choice of vehicle alone. I found this very refreshing and an overall pleasant experience when purchasing my replacement vehicle. I was also able to discuss a service plan for both the purchase vehicle and my husband's car which was not bought from this dealer. They made us so welcome and referred to me by first name when i went to collect the car. All in all this experience renewed my faith in car salesmen and their after sales service.
