Seat confirms four-day test drives for business customers

Seat Leon

Seat has confirmed plans to expand its successful four-day test drive initiative for its Ateca SUV to cover its entire range.

Test drives of up to four days will be available via all Seat dealers and Business Centre specialists across the UK for any model including the New Leon SE Dynamic Technology.

Fleet News first revealed the manufacturer was considering introducing a four-day test drive scheme for business users last month.

Available to all business and fleet drivers, the test drive scheme aims to enable dealers to provide an easy and swift way for company users to access brand new vehicles – a known industry shortcoming, whereby retailers are not always able to provide demonstrators to business customers.

Peter McDonald, head of fleet and business sales at Seat UK, explained: “The Ateca’s extended test drive service was launched just a matter of months ago, and was an immediate success; expanding the service was a no-brainer.

“Test drives are one of the most important stages in choosing a new car, particularly for fleets. Business customers need to be certain they’re making the right decision, and we’re happy to give them the time to make sure individual needs are met. Once they’re behind the wheel of one of our products, we’re confident they’ll be hooked, with our range appealing to both the heard and the heart.”
