About Us

In 2019, Hodgson Motor Group is celebrating 60 years of service to motorists in Tyne and Wear. We started out as a family business back in 1959, with the aim of providing great cars and an honest, trustworthy service.

Since then, these values have remained at the heart of everything we do. Our business has expanded to encompass three globally renowned marques – Madza, Toyota and Suzuki – and two state-of-the-art locations: our Silverlink dealership in the north east of Newcastle and our MetroCentre near Gateshead. Yet our commitment to integrity has never been greater, and our team works hard to ensure every customer that visits us has a positive experience.

Indeed, we have rejected opportunities to expand further and set up locations in other areas, instead choosing to focus on providing an exceptional service to drivers in the north east, where our roots are.

We are proud to represent Mazda, Toyota and Suzuki, supplying the full line-up of new cars and a wide selection of used cars to customers from across the region. The Mazda range offers a great choice, whether you’re looking for a first car or fulfilling your dream of owning an MX-5 – Britain’s favourite sports car.

Toyota has become a market-leader in hybrid technology, and we’re delighted to be helping motorists discover the benefits of cleaner driving. Suzuki, meanwhile, has some excellent models for inner city living, giving you power and efficiency in equal measure.

In addition to private car sales, our dedicated team is able to help fleet managers to find suitable vehicles for their needs. Our business specialists can outline the benefits of our various models for business use, summarise tax implications, and help you work out operating costs. We also have trained Motability specialists who can assist drivers with mobility difficulties. As well as helping you choose your ideal car, they can provide guidance on the process, order any necessary vehicle adaptations, and ensure your entire ownership experience is smooth and hassle-free.

Our success is due not only to our commitment to our family values, but also to the hard work of our team, who go the extra mile to ensure our customers drive away completely satisfied. Of course, our loyal customers have played their part too, coming back to us time and again for vehicle purchases, aftersales care and more. At the end of the day, it’s all about taking care of good people. That’s what family is for, right?
