CarGurus’ 2018 in review: company milestones, dealer events, top content, and more

Posted by Meg Bernazzani on January 17, 2019

2018 was a banner year for us here at CarGurus: we announced the launch of our first TV advert, our Gurus held and attended dealer events across the country, and we published lots of new content to help you sell more cars.

We took a moment to reflect on everything we did in 2018, and here are some of the highlights.

CarGurus hit new milestones

We shared our plans to acquire motoring website PistonHeads, and we announced the launch of our inaugural national TV advertising campaign in an effort to expand our consumer audience in the UK. Check out the advert below:

We held and attended events all over the country

From the Goodwood Festival of Speed and Wimbledon to CDX ’18, SMB Dealer Council, CarGurus’ own Dealer Council, and more, we travelled all over to reach our dealers—and we can’t wait to do it all again in 2019.


We launched valuable content for you

We released research, testimonials, templates, and more on our recently redesigned Dealer Resource Centre. These were some of your favourites:


Product updates and releases

You asked for new features and product updates—and we answered! In 2018, we updated the Pricing Tool to make it easy to see exactly what it would take to make a vehicle a Great, Good, or Fair Deal. We also added postal code matching and more lead details on the Removed Listings Activity tab to help dealers with attribution. Other updates and releases included the addition of feed splitting, CRM/LMS integrations for lead delivery, and Dealer Badges.
