Latest News: The All-new SEAT Ibiza has landed its first major UK award, weeks before it even arrives on our shores, after being named Best Supermini at the 2017 Auto Express New Car Awards, announced at a ceremony this evening.  It’s a tremendous accomplishment for the super-stylish new model, asserting its market-leading potential and huge customer appeal. Established as the standard-bearer for the Spanish brand for more than 30 years, Ibiza enters its fifth generation in better shape than ever, on a brand new platform with impressive levels of handling, quality, refinement and technology.  Commenting on Ibiza’s class-leading quality, Auto Express Editor-in-Chief Steve Fowler said: "The new Ibiza is a stunning supermini with a maturity we haven't experienced in this class before. We love the space, comfort and refinement as well as the style. But best of all is the price - this is a really affordable car to buy and run.”  His words back up the results of Auto Express’ first review on UK roads, which declared “there’s a new top dog in Britain’s favourite segment”.  Richard Harrison, SEAT UK Director, said: “This award provides a great launch pad for our most important new model launch of the year. We have worked hard to make this not only the best Ibiza yet, but also the best model in its class. We’re confident that in terms of all-round performance, style, quality and owner-appeal, it has what it takes to be a winner – and we’re delighted that Auto Express shares this opinion.  “Of course our ambitions do not end with the All-new Ibiza, it’s part of an exciting and ambitious new product programme that has already yielded great results with the launch of the Ateca SUV and the significant upgrades to our Leon family. The All-new Ibiza is the third car in our largest ever product offensive of four model launches in just 18 months, followed soon by the very exciting New Arona compact crossover which was unveiled to the world just last night in Barcelona.”  UK customers don’t have long to wait to discover just what the All-new Ibiza offers – the official launch for the brand’s striking new five-door supermini takes place across the country on 21 July. Ordering is already open, with an on-the-road starting price of just £13,130. More information is available at http://www.seat.co.uk/new-cars/new-ibiza/overview.html  While Ibiza grabbed the limelight, SEAT was further honoured by Auto Express with award commendations for the Ateca in the Mid-Sized SUV category and for Alhambra among the contenders for the Best MPV title.  Motorvogue are holding weekend Launch Events to showcase the New SEAT Ibiza at our Bedford and Northampton branches from 21-23 July.

Abarth Day 2017 at Rockingham, Saturday May 20th

The tickets for the spectacular "Abarth Day 2017" events, biggest of all Abarth meetings, which will be staged on seven race tracks across Europe from May to July, can be purchased on the www.abarthday.com website now. A range of ticket prices is available, starting from £10. What is more, "The Scorpionship" cardholders enjoy up to 50% discounts. You can apply for your free card at scorpionship.abarth.com.

 

After the extraordinary success of the past edition, Abarth has decided to expand the event which will now count no fewer than seven unmissable appointments for fans of the car with the scorpion badge. All events share the same programme with some local differences, and they will involve the ever growing "The Scorpionship" community. You can join the 70,000-fans-strong club active in 10 countries for free on the scorpionship.abarth.com website. From the prized classics, built starting from 1949 (the year when Abarth was established), to the brand-new Abarth 595 and Abarth 124 spider, Abarth cars will play a starring role. Visitors will have the chance to take the models of the range for a spin on each of the seven circuits, both on and off the track.

 

There will be areas dedicated to modern models, classic cars and affiliated Abarth Clubs, to offer all fans an action-packed, exciting programme Those who arrive driving of their own Abarth can park inside the paddock and drive their car on the tracks, after purchasing the specific ticket. Furthermore, an entertainment area will also be open. Designed for Abarth fans of all ages, visitors can use driving simulators, challenge each other with remote controlled Abarth cars and configure the new Abarth 124 spider using ground-braking virtual reality. Finally, they will be invited to experience the extreme Abarth performance by becoming the co-driver of an Abarth race car driven by a professional pilot.
