After 33 years of connecting serious car buyers with sellers, Autotrader is one of the most trusted automotive brands in New Zealand. Every month over 450,000+ kiwis visit Autotrader’s online platforms, and the iconic buyers guide and free weekly magazine reaches 100,000 eyeballs a week.

General manager at Bauer Trader Media, Terry Williams-King, said of the Y&R NZ appointment: “The Y&R team really impressed us with their genuinely integrated offer and insightful approach to how we communicate that it’s easier, cheaper and faster to sell your car through”

“Y&R is staffed by serious car nuts and the Autotrader brand is one that most of us have grown up with, in fact the Autotrader Buyers Guide was a staple in every flat I’ve ever lived in. We’re looking forward to working with the Trader Group to continue the brand’s legacy,” says Y&R NZ’s managing director, Steve Kane.

General manager of media, Y&R NZ, Nicky Greville adds: “The team behind has built a remarkable platform that seriously outclasses every other online automotive trading site servicing this market and it delivers the best results for those looking to sell.”

Autotrader is the flagship brand of the Bauer Trader portfolio which consists of six industry specific market leading magazines and six associated websites. Y&R’s new campaign for Autotrader will be in market later this year.
