Designing and producing cars since 1950, SEAT has a wealth of experience and knowledge under its belt which it uses to present innovative vehicles to the market, like the new SEAT Arona, as well as revive and reinvent iconic motors, such as the all-new SEAT Ibiza.
In fact, SEAT cars have a multitude of positive qualities, and so we’ve sweated over them all to pick out just five of the strongest reasons for you to buy one.
In the beginning, SEAT was mostly known for producing hatchbacks, starting with the Ibiza, their first independent model and the longest running nameplate in the company’s history. Today, SEAT has expanded into other classes including crossovers, SUVs, small city cars and even people carriers.
The SEAT Mii is the most compact model in the range and an excellent city car. For a bit more room, take a look at the trusty SEAT Ibiza, a fixture on our roads since 1984!

The other big name in the Leon range is the performance oriented Cupra, one of the most intriguing hot hatchbacks on the market.
For those who want a more classic design, there’s the attractive Toledo saloon. The newest additions to the SEAT range are two urban SUVs, the Ateca (£17,455) and the striking Ibiza-based Arona which debuts in late 2017. Finally, there’s the Alhambra, a practical MPV for the largest families or groups of friends who like to ride together.
