Star car and what its worth

Star car

CAR: SEAT Cordoba 1.9 TDI, S-reg
MILEAGE: 58,000
WHERE SOLD: Manheim Auctions, Rotherham
HOW MUCH: £3,575
% of cap: 131%

BACKGROUND: The car was in good condition for its age and it had a mileage that was just about average for a diesel. Diesel cars with a full service history always tend to achieve good results if they are in decent condition. This car had only one owner from new making it particularly attractive. SEAT’s tend to sell well as they are part of the Volkswagen stable but without the associated brand costs. Around the auction rooms, SEAT is definitely a rising brand.

What it's worth?

IF your car is leased or outright purchased, knowing its value is vital, particularly if you want to offer staff the chance to buy the vehicle at the end of the contract. Use our weekly guide to benchmark prices.
