The number of Seat cars sold in the first half of 2007 in the UK has shot up by 6.45 per cent compared to last year, according to new figures.
After achieving what was a record market share for the Spanish motor manufacturer, Seat has now completed its most successful year to date in the first six months of 2007.
With 17,839 cars registered from January to June 2007, this beats last year’s total by more than 1,000 units.
Peter Wyhinny, director of Seat UK, said: "This fantastic result is hugely encouraging. Increasing demand for our sporty and design-led range of cars is set to grow further as new products arrive, such as the Altea Freetrack crossover vehicle in October."
These new results, along with the record 1.41 per cent share of the market, puts Seat ahead of other firms such as Kia, Hyundai, Volvo and Suzuki.
Mr Wyhinny added that, with its new models and upcoming offers, he hopes the firm will continue improving throughout 2007.
