While Renault recently announced a 20 day ‘festival’ to celebrate the anniversary of the Clio, Seat has introduced finance deals and free servicing over the Bank Holiday weekend.
The Spanish manufacturer is offering two years free servicing and lower finance for some used Exeo saloon and Ibiza SE models.
The Exeo TDI SE with 2.0-litre engine and 143bhp costs £15,250 on-the-road and the five-door Ibiza Sport is £9,995. For the weekend only, both models will be offered with 4.9 per cent APR as part of a new campaign.
Seat has decided against following the likes of Ford by lowering initial prices, instead the sporty manufacturer will offer pre-owned models from as low as £199 per month.
Seat UK Used Car Manager David Ardern said dealers were expecting a busy weekend.
He added: “The appeal of all Approved Used SEAT models is clear, but with the addition of these limited-time finance and servicing offers on selected models I believe we’re making the cars pretty much irresistible!"
Selected Seat dealers will sell the Ibiza and Exeo models with the new financing offers. Seat cars have proved popular with used buyers in recent months and the brand was named ‘Most Improved Used Car Brand’ by CAP at the Used Car of the Decades Awards.
A CAP spokesperson said: ‘Today, a used SEAT is actively sought and chosen by buyers who care about what they drive. The brand has earned its own reputation and that is exemplified by depreciation that matches the class leader in its principal sector.’
