Spanish car maker Seat has revived its ‘Pay No VAT’ campaign as it seeks to continue its most successful year to date and attract even more new car buyers to the brand.
The new offer covers two of the Barcelona-based car company’s most popular models – the stylish Ibiza 5dr 1.4 SE Copa supermini and the sporty Leon 1.6 TDI S Copa family hatchback.
Like all Seat’s wearing the ‘Copa’ badge, both cars boast as standard many hundreds of pounds’ worth of the most sought-after equipment previously found on the options list.
Normally retailing at £12,805 RRP, the Ibiza 5dr 1.4 SE Copa is packed with desirable goodies including 16” alloy wheels, climate control, rain-sensing wipers, auto-headlights, front fog lights with cornering function, cruise control, front electric windows and an MP3-compatible CD player with AUX-in.
The Leon 1.6 TDI S Copa, which normally retails at £17,880 RRP, comes with 16” alloy wheels, dual zone climate control, Bluetooth, front fog lights with cornering function, cruise control, an MP3-compatible CD player with AUX-in, ESP stability programme with XDS (electronic differential lock) and a Start/Stop system with energy recovery.
Every new Seat – including those offered on the ‘Pay No VAT’ deal – is currently available to buy via 8.9% APR Solutions (PCP) scheme offered by SEAT Finance.
Again extended to retail customers, and with a contract term of between 18 and 42 months, the Seat Finance ‘Solutions’ deal means a new Ibiza SC 1.2 S Copa is available for £199 per month with a deposit of £199 – based on a 42-month contract, up to 10,000 miles per year and with an optional final payment of £3,385.28.
Peter Wyhinny, managing director of Seat UK, said: ‘It has been a fantastic year for Seat so far and, year to date, we have recorded our highest ever share of the UK’s new car market.
‘The popularity of our previous ‘Pay No VAT’ offer and the incredible added value of our limited edition Copa models have both clearly helped that success. Now we are combining the appeal of these to produce what I believe is the very best new car offer around!’
