SEAT Offer Equivalent to No VAT


Hot on the heels of its most successful sales period in the UK, SEAT is revealing details of what must surely be one of the most attractive offers in its 25-year UK history.

The simple, straightforward message is this: buy one of a number of selected new SEAT models and you’ll pay no VAT.

The exceptional deal, which amounts to a discount of 17.5% off the basic price of a raft of sporty new SEATs, has been calculated to cement the Spanish brand’s formidable success thus far this year.

With the September numbers now firmly crunched SEAT is celebrating an outstanding 1.61% share of this important month’s market, a performance which contributed to the Brand’s all-time record 1.68% market share for the three months to October.

Despite the continued uncertain economic climate that share is SEAT’s best for any quarter in its 25-year history here, and signals more clearly than ever that the Spanish car maker is set fair for continued strong growth in the UK.

As ever, of course, the push for sales growth doesn’t stop and with the latest attractive deal there’s now more reason than ever to consider a new SEAT.

The details couldn’t be more simple.  All qualifying vehicles are eligible for a discount equivalent to the VAT shown in the price list.  That means 17.5% off the basic price of the car and any factory-fitted options.

For example, the offer as applied to a new SEAT Leon 1.4 TSI Sport with optional metallic paint and Media Pack would be:

  Basic price VAT Recommended retail price
Leon 1.4 TSI Sport £14,365.96 £2,514.04 £16,880
Metallic paint £323.40 £56.60 £380
Media Pack £676.60 £118.40 £795
Totals £15,365.96 £2,689.04 £18,055*
Customer discount £2,689.04    
Offer price £15,365.96*    
Offer price OTR £15,545.96    

* excluding first registration fee and road fund licence

Qualifying cars include all Ibiza SC and Ibiza 5dr models – with the exception of the Cupra and Cupra Bocanegra; all Ibiza ST models; Leon S, S Emoción, SE and Sport derivatives; all Altea and Altea XL versions including the frugal new Ecomotive; and all Exeo and Exeo ST variants with the exception of SE Tech and Sport Tech cars.

The headline-grabbing retail campaign is also available for local small business sales (conditions apply) and relates to qualifying cars ordered and handed over at participating SEAT dealers between now and 31 December 2010.
