About Us

Kidd Motor Group is the Manawatu's Suzuki Automotive Dealer Franchise selling new Suzuki's and high quality pre-owned vehicles. Owned by Robin Kidd and formally known as Palmerston North Eurocar's the business has been operating successfully for the past 37 years and has built up tremendous goodwill within the community.

Robin is originally from Scotland. He worked as an engineer at Scot Base on the Antarctic continent in the 1960's. On his way through New Zealand to Antarctica he met his future wife Jenny.

Robin worked as a mechanic throughout the Manawatu and in 1982 he purchased the K.S. Grant Motors workshop in Palmerston North. After 9 years he brought a building on the corner of Carroll and Featherston Street and relocated. This provided the first opportunity to sell vehicles. Robin quickly picked up the Audi, Fiat, Alfa Romeo and Citroen agencies and in 1997 an opportunity arose to take on the Suzuki franchise and sales have improved every year. In 2021 Eurocar Suzuki was the top Provincial dealership in New Zealand. Eurocar Suzuki is a family run business. Robin Kidd's son, Stephen, returned from Amsterdam in 2007 to run the Sales department. Robins daughter, Donna Kidd, returned from London in 2007 , she is now the office manager.

Kidd Motor Group runs a very experienced service and parts department and are the factory franchise agents for Suzuki, Peugeot and Citroen. We also repair and service all other European vehicles.

We look forward to the future in the Manawatu and we look forward to providing great vehicles and great service to our customers.

Happy Motoring
