THE PARETTI FAMILY OF DEALERSHIPS ABOUT OUR COMPANY

TOP EXECUTIVES

In 1934 Joseph A. Paretti opened his first car service center in New Orleans. His future three generations would expand that business to acquire automobile franchises over the years to include Jaguar, MG, Triumph, Alpha Romeo, Pontiac, Mazda and Land Rover. The Paretti Family of Dealerships currently sells and services the Mazda, Jaguar and Land Rover brands in both New Orleans and Baton Rouge. At a time when many local dealerships have been swallowed up by huge out of town corporations whose main focus is their bottom line, Paretti is proud to be a part of a locally owned family business with a history of serving our community for close to 90 years.

WHAT TO EXPECT IN THE FUTURE

luxury SUVs in the E-PACE and F-PACE. Both have been quite popular and we expect that steady sales will continue in our markets. Land Rover continues to be a consistent performer in both markets, as most sold models are pre-ordered units. And the Mazda brand has continued to exceed expectations, with a model lineup that offers cars with premium content at truly affordable prices.

Over the next three years our New Orleans campus will see a complete makeover. The first building to get an entirely new look will house Paretti Mazda, followed by a brand new Jaguar Land Rover dual facility. Paretti Mazda just became the first authorized aluminum repair facility in the state for Jaguar Land Rover. One of the most exciting products on the horizon is the all-electric Jaguar I-PACE, which will be available August 2018.
