Top Canadian automotive dealers are recognized for consistent and transparent pricing practices on the AutoTrader.ca marketplace
TORONTO, ON – March 25, 2021 — TRADER Corporation, Canada’s leading digital automotive solutions provider, today announced the winners of the 2021 AutoTrader.ca Best Priced Dealer Awards. Now in its second year, the Best Priced Dealer Awards spotlights the top Canadian automotive dealers consistently offering great value for car buyers through competitive pricing.
TRADER is pleased to honour 241 dealers across the country. Winners are determined based on a scientific analysis of the top dealerships on the marketplace with the highest percentage of “Good” and “Great” price badges on their vehicle inventory, according to the AutoTrader.ca iQ Inventory Algorithm. This algorithm analyzes real-time pricing data of over 450,000 cars on the marketplace to offer a statistically backed benchmark for the nation.
“We’re excited to bring back the AutoTrader.ca Best Priced Dealer Awards to give dealers this well-deserved recognition for demonstrating industry-leading pricing practices,” says Ian MacDonald, Chief Marketing Officer, TRADER Corporation. “We are dedicated to reinforcing consumer trust and confidence through fair and accurate pricing, so it gives us great pleasure to award partners who share this vision.”
The AutoTrader.ca Best Priced Dealer Awards marks one of many initiatives by TRADER directed at reinforcing a trusted purchase environment for consumers on the AutoTrader.ca marketplace. The mission is to evoke immediate consumer confidence in dealers who price competitively and support Canadians who identify price guidance as a top consideration in the car purchase journey. Award winners will receive collateral to display proudly in dealership, along with a coveted badge to signify their status as a Best Priced Dealer on their AutoTrader.ca VDPs.
“Last year’s awards prompted an overwhelming reception from dealers,” MacDonald says. “We received several reports from dealers confirming that trophies and digital VDP badges encouraged positive feedback from clients and had a tangible impact on customer perception.”
