What's the news?
It may only be May, but SEAT is gearing up for the 192 registration period in July by setting out its special offers stall.
The 192 offers, available across its 24-strong nationwide dealer network, are available for orders made between the 13th of May and the 31st of July.
With those offers, the monthly repayments can be kept temptingly low. How about €219 a month for an Arona? Or €289 for an Ateca? Or even €349 for a Tarraco? And SEAT will throw in a three-year servicing package with that deal. For those who fancy something a bit less high-riding, you could have an Ibiza hatchback for €189 per month, or a Leon for €239 per month.
But wait, there's more... Those deals can also be had with trade-in bonuses. Those will get you €1,000 off an Arona, €2,000 off an Ibiza, Ateca, or Tarraco and €3,000 off a Leon.
Niall Phillips, Brand Director at SEAT Ireland, commented: "It has been an exciting year so far for SEAT with the launch of our first seven-seater SUV, the SEAT Tarraco, and the announcement of our plans to expand into the electric vehicle segment with the SEAT el-Born. Through our latest 192 offers, we will continue to bring excellent value to our customers with offers spread across the most impressive product range the SEAT brand has ever had."
That impressive product range has given SEAT an equally impressive start to the year in sales terms. In spite of a falling market for new cars, SEAT has actually increased its sales by 8.25 per cent this year, and is on the cusp of breaking into the top-ten selling brands overall.
