It may only be April, but SEAT Ireland is already looking forward to the July registration plate change (when, you never know, we might actually all be allowed out of the house...) and is lining up its offers for that critical second sales peak of the year.
€1,000 off a new Leon
If you fancy a new SEAT on a 212-plate, then you'll be able to buy it on 0 per cent PCP finance, which is now being offered on all of the SEAT range. There is also a series of discount vouchers, available to download from the SEAT Ireland website, which will get you €1,000 off a Leon, Leon e-Hybrid plug-in, Ibiza, or Arona. If it's an Ateca, Tarraco or Alhambra you're after, then there's a €2,000 voucher to be downloaded.
Plug-in hybrid options
On all of those cars, you can also have a new inclusive service package, which costs €9.99 per month. SEAT has just updated the Ateca and Tarraco, with new infotainment systems, more connectivity options, and an upgraded voice recognition app. The Spanish brand is also getting in on the electric game, with the new plug-in hybrid versions of the Leon and Leon Sportstourer estate. Those can go for as much as 64km on battery power alone (according to the old NEDC test; it's more like 52km on the newer, tougher, WLTP test) yet have a combined 204hp from their 1.4 TSI turbo engines and electric motors.
Niall Phillips, Brand Director at SEAT Ireland said: "I am delighted to announce the range of offers across our SEAT 212 models. It is important that we continue to offer both great product and value to our customers and are happy to provide 0 per cent PCP finance as well as online discount vouchers worth up to €2,000 across a selection of our 212 models. Whilst our showrooms remain closed due to ongoing restrictions, we encourage customers to access the virtual showroom on our website and avail of our online services to help them choose their new SEAT model. All of our retailers are offering a click and delivery service."
Needless to say, SEAT has ramped up its online shopping tools, with live chats, an online configurator, and online finance applications and service bookings.
