Welcome to the Sentes Automotive Group

The Sentes Automotive Group is a network of seven dealerships representing six of the world’s top brands. We have over 700 vehicles across our dealerships located in Kelowna, Vernon, and Penticton. We service our customers with passion and dedication and are committed to excellence every single day. We can’t wait to welcome you as a valuable member of the Sentes Automotive family.

The first Sentes dealership was founded in 1980 in Hinton, AB when Rick Sentes purchased the local Pontiac, Buick, GMC dealership in his small Alberta community. By 1996, after selling the Hinton dealership, Sentes had purchased the Chevrolet, Oldsmobile, Cadillac dealership in Penticton, B.C, the Kelowna Infiniti Nissan dealership, and Kelowna Mercedes-Benz. From there the Sentes group kept growing upwards, adding Penticton Honda and Hyundai in 2002, Vernon Nissan in 2008, and Lexus of Kelowna in 2012.

Today, Sentes Automotive employs over 270 Okanagan residents and retails nearly 4,500 new and pre-owned vehicles a year. The Sentes Group is proud to represent six different brands.

The Sentes Group is also very involved with the Penticton, Kelowna, and Vernon communities. The group is involved with the BC Cancer Society, UBCO JDC West Business Program, OUC Trades Centre, and more. We represent the mainstream brands Hyundai, Honda, and Nissan as well as premium luxury brands Infiniti, Lexus, and Mercedes-Benz.
