The award comes shortly after the dealership moved to new premises on Hadfield Road in Leckwith which boasts a 12 car showroom and has the full Nissan range on offer including LCVs.
Wessex Nissan Cardiff was put through a rigorous selection process before being chosen as a High Performance Centre.
The centre is home to a select team of advisors and technicians highly trained in all aspects of Nissan’s high performance cars.
As well as being home to Nissan’s supercars, the dealership is also one of only 26 in the country to sell the LEAF.
Keith Brock, Managing Director at Wessex Garages Nissan, said: ‘We are delighted to finally open this most prestigious site for Wessex and Nissan – I refer to it as our superstore! South Wales needs this and where better than in the capital of Wales.
‘Already we are seeing increased levels of interest in the complete Nissan range. With our enhanced facilities and already outstanding levels of customer service, our customers have never been happier.’
