Official statistics from the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders show that Seat’s July market share soared to 2.07% an all time best for Seat in a single month and up from 1.88% in July 2010.
The Seat Ibiza and Seat Leon continue to be star performers as are the high performance Seat FR and Seat Cupra versions. The new Seat Alhambra continues to garner sales at an unprecedented rate. Almost 1,000 have found homes in UK garages so far this year, while an exceptionally healthy order bank promises more impressive numbers in the future.
Peter Wyhinny, Managing Director of Seat UK said ‘I’m very pleased to see such a strong performance in July, which comes on the back of other significant records this year. It’s now very obvious that our dynamic, stylish and great value cars are making an increasing impact here. Importantly, too, our dealer network is growing while our increased marketing activities around such high profile events as the UEFA Europa League are putting the Seat brand in front of an audience of millions.’
