WordPress is such a diverse platform that you can host virtually any website on it.
While the general consensus is that WordPress is exclusively for bloggers and those who work in eCommerce, the fact that is any type of business can use WordPress and this can range from selling self-help eBooks to cars.
Even though many people wouldn’t buy a vehicle over the internet this does not stop car dealers advertising their models online. In fact, there has been a rise in the number of car dealerships that now have their own website. While it can provide basic information about the company it also serves as a way to show what they have in stock and gives the potential customer a better idea of what they have to offer.
So, what should a good car deal WordPress theme have?
For a start the focus here is on images. Many websites put the emphasis on text with a minimalist design however a car dealer needs to showcase pictures of the vehicles they have. While text is necessary for basic information about the car, most customers care more about how it looks, and therefore images need to be able to be displayed in a clean, efficient and prominent manner on the site.
Also, most themes which put an emphasis on images are great for a car dealer website and this includes certain portfolio themes. Furthermore, the very best will have advanced search functionality to make it simple and straightforward for users to find exactly what they are looking for on the site.
The themes that we have chosen for this list are all car dealership focused and have the right attributes to be a success. As always they are a mix of both free and paid themes with links to the theme itself and the demo.
