Why lease a SEAT?
Design, innovation, and performance straight from the heart of Spain
In 1950, SEAT set out on a mission to motorise the Spanish population. At the time, the country had just 3.1 cars for every 1000 citizens. Throughout the decade that followed, SEAT reached several major landmarks including the production of 10,000 cars in a single year and the launch of its iconic Seat 600, a car that symbolised the modern era for a whole generation. The 1960s saw SEAT reach its first million cars produced, with this figure doubling by 1974. The 1980s brought the launch of the Panda and the loved and ubiquitous SEAT Ibiza - a car that has now been turning heads and corners with equal impact for over thirty years. The SEAT Leon - the most powerful of the brand’s cars so far - was launched just ahead of the new millennium in 1999, and in 2004 the Altea premiered at the Geneva Motor Show.
SEAT turned sixty in 2010, and the new decade has seen the release of several exciting new cars. The brand’s line-up has expanded to include the more spacious Ibiza ST, the quirky Mii city car, and the Leon SC. SEAT’s work has not stopped there, and the company continues to innovate as it has done throughout its lifetime. It has remained the only Spanish company to design and manufacture its own cars, and doing so with the use of highly advanced technologies. Now, SEAT’s cars ensure you are always in touch with the people that matter thanks to its own unique connectivity apps and technology. The cars are all tested virtually before construction begins, allowing SEAT to study their cars in detail before they are even built. Moving ahead of its time, the Leon has become the first car in its category to be fitted with full LED headlights.
SEAT continues to focus on the outstanding design that makes its cars so recognisable, with the brand’s signature contours, contrasts, and highlights all ensuring an impactful first impression. Not only boasting a pretty face, SEAT cars are developed with clever technology such as the Eco TSI engine, offering even more control on the road. 4Drive technology builds in a 4x4 system with fifth-generation Haldex clutch, and testing in some of the most extreme environments in the world ensures every SEAT handles whatever is thrown at it.
Let your passion for driving take over with a low-cost, no-hassle Seat lease
We pride ourselves on doing things differently from the rest. Whilst many drivers in search of their new car will instinctively think to buy, our clients find that Vantage Leasing can offer far more than the traditional route has to give. The old ways are not always the best ways, and leasing is growing in popularity every year. Buying does have its benefits, but it also comes with a range of disadvantages that can easily make ownership suddenly far less enticing. Firstly, purchasing a car means parting with a large amount of money all at once or taking out a loan that is even costlier in the long-term. Secondly, it means an expensive series of maintenance check-ups and remedies. Thirdly, it means losing a lot more money over time. New cars will inevitably lose their value both quickly and significantly, and when you eventually come to sell you will find that the car is worth far less than it originally cost. This fall in value combined with the hassles of selling on second-hand mean many owners end up accepting a far from perfect deal.
When you choose to lease a SEAT with Vantage Leasing, you can rest assured that the pitfalls of car ownership will not be yours to worry about. What’s more, you’ll be opened up to a range of new advantages that you may never have imagined possible. Firstly, our range of SEAT leasing deals will allow you to drive away in your new car without parting with the huge sums of cash that a dealership might require, letting you keep your savings aside for other things. Having made a small upfront payment, you will go on to pay an affordable monthly rate agreed upon by you and arranged to individualised terms based upon your own personal budget. Our leasing deals not only offer immediate financial benefits, but deliver advantages well into the future and expose our clients to a selection of new possibilities. Whilst the associated costs of buying brand new can leave you with only a few affordable cars to choose from, leasing can open you up to previously unimagined leagues. Our clients find that they are able to choose from amongst the best cars on the market, pairing their choice with one of our personalised, affordable leasing plans.
What we find our clients value most, however, is the purely enjoyable and hassle-free driving experience that leasing provides. Without the financial worries of buying brand new or the stresses and hassles of selling on second-hand, you can leave behind concerns about depreciation and let any unlikely issues be taken care of by our cars’ brand new warranties. When you finally come to move on to a new model, you will be able to simply hand back your old car and get on with your next adventure.
Get personal with a range of customisation options on each of our Seat models
Your car - just like your home - is an extension of you, and the choices you make about it are almost never purely practical. We know that for each of our clients, it is important that they drive away with a car that really suits them. That is why we do all that we can to ensure you are paired with the perfect car and don’t simply settle for the first model that you come across.
You may already have an idea of the car you’d like to drive away with but, equally, you may need some help finding it. We will gladly spend time checking through the finer details of each of our models to help find exactly the right car for you. You might prefer to make a quick decision, in which case you will be pleased to find a selection of all of our most popular SEAT lease deals and models ready and waiting for you to step into and take out onto the road. If you’re looking for something a little more personalised, however, we will deliver a bespoke service that opens up the smaller details of each model to a range of personalisation options.
We have developed close and successful relationships with each of the brands and manufacturers that we represent at Vantage Leasing. We work closely with our associated dealerships, in turn passing on the privileges that this affords to you, our client. These privileges include the ability to pick and choose the perfect model for you, as well as customise your car with a range of interior and exterior options from the trim fabric and colour to the alloy wheel size and more.
