SEAT is the UK’s fastest-growing volume car brand, with September sales up by a staggering 14%.

A total of 8,343 SEATS were sold last month, despite the UK new car market being in a period of overall decline.
The Barcelona-based brand’s UK sales are up by a fifth so far this year, fuelled by strong customer interest in the Leon and Ateca models.  With the arrival of the new SEAT Ibiza in UK showrooms on 17 November, the brand has high hopes for an even better end to 2017.  There are plans in the pipeline for SEAT to launch another six new models by the end of 2020, including an all-new, as yet unnamed seven-seat SUV due to arrive next year.
“SEAT is a brand on the move”, said UK Head of Sales, Steve Catlin.

“By next month, we’ll have launched four new models in the space of just 18 months. It’s a really exciting chapter in our history.  Not only are our colleagues in Barcelona giving us such great cars to work with, but, the UK team and our dealer partners are doing a superb job in maintaining our momentum and releasing the brand’s true potential.”
