More SEAT price cuts

Fri, 15 Dec 2000
VAG owned Spanish car maker SEAT announced further price cuts today, together with prices for its cute new-look Arosa range which goes on sale on 1st January 2001. Prices for these start at £6,695 on the road for the 1.0 model which comes complete with driver’s airbag, power steering, stereo radio/cassette, front and rear head restraints, a height-adjustable steering wheel, colour coded bumpers, luggage cover and split/folding rear seats. £8,995 on the road buys the new 75bhp Arosa 1.4TDI PD which can do up to 78.5mpg on the ‘extra urban’ cycle, emits just 119g/km CO2, yet is very sprightly to drive and comes with smart alloy wheels as standard. Ibizas now start at £7,995 for the 60bhp 1.4S with power steering, alloy wheels and a/c, rising to £12,995 for the terrific little 156bhp Cupra – a cut of £1,000 on its launch price. Leons start at £9,994 for the 75bhp 1.4S 16v with standard alloy wheels, rising through £12,295 for the 90bhp TDI S to £14,995 for the 180bhp 20VT Cupra, which, shod of electric leather seats, replaces the old 20VT Sport model. Toledos start at £14,495 for the 125bhp 1.8 20V, rising through £15,495 for the 110bhp TDI SE, to £16,995 for the 2.3 V5 which now has the same 170bhp 20 valve V5 engine as the equivalent Golf. Cheapest Alhambra is the £16,995 2.0S, but best value is the 115bhp six-speed TDI PD at £18,995. All SEATs are covered by a three year warranty, while Leons and Toledos also have a 12 year body warranty. Road test of the 156bhp SEAT Ibiza Cupra among the road tests on this site.
