Latest News: The Quadrifoglio badge once again lives up to its name, amassing two more accolades for the Alfa Romeo Giulia and Stelvio at the annual What Car? Car of the Year Awards 2019. Judged by the expert team at What Car?, the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio took home ‘Performance Car of the Year’, following its ‘Sports Car’ category win in 2018, while the Stelvio Quadrifoglio fought off stiff competition to take the crown for ‘Best Sports SUV for more than £60,000’. The Giulia Quadrifoglio came in for praise from Steve Huntingford, editor of What Car?, saying “It’s often said that getting to the top is easier than staying there. So by that reckoning, the Giulia Quadrifoglio’s second Car of the Year category win is arguably a greater success than its first. But it should be no surprise – after all, we’re talking about a comfortable, spacious, well-equipped saloon that’s more fun to drive than rivals costing tens of thousands more”. Steve Huntingford, What Car? Editor said of the Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio: “The hottest version of the Stelvio SUV is outrageously fast, but still feels light and responsive thanks to steering that's super-quick without making the car feel nervous. Add in great body control and four-wheel drive traction and the Quadrifoglio continually encourages you to make the most of its performance”. Both the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio and the Stelvio Quadrifoglio are powered by a 510hp, 600Nm Bi-Turbo V6 petrol engine, which allows them to reach a top speed of 191mph and 176mph respectively, while reaching 62mph from zero in just 3.9 seconds in the Giulia and 3.8 seconds in the Stelvio. Arnaud Leclerc, Managing Director, FCA UK, commented: “Alfa Romeo cars have always appealed to the heart with their Italian passion, flair and dynamics, but these awards show that the latest models also appeal to the head. To see the pinnacles of the new Alfa Romeo range lauded by the experts at What Car? makes these wins even more rewarding.” To coincide with these wins, Alfa Romeo UK have secured further right-hand-drive allocation of the limited edition Giulia Quadrifoglio NRING and Stelvio Quadrifoglio NRING models, priced from £82,500 OTR and £89,500 OTR respectively. Just 108 editions of each model are available for the whole EMEA region, celebrating the records achieved by Alfa Romeo at the legendary Nurburgring. The Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio is available now priced from £63,500 OTR, while the Stelvio Quadrifoglio starts from £69,990 OTR.  To find out more about the award-winning Alfa Romeo Giulia and Stelvio ranges, speak to our Sales Teams at Bedford, Northampton and Kings Lynn

SEAT?S FAB FOUR TAKE HONOURS IN THE WHAT CAR? CAR OF THE YEAR AWARDS 2018

SEAT?S FAB FOUR TAKE HONOURS IN THE WHAT CAR? CAR OF THE YEAR AWARDS 2018

SEAT has taken the What Car? Car of the Year Awards 2018 by storm, with four different models – Arona, Ibiza, Leon and Ateca – each taking category wins. It’s a clean-sweep for the quartet of new cars that has spearheaded the Spanish manufacturer’s largest product offensive to date.

The awards were presented at a glitzy ceremony at Grosvenor House Hotel in London last night. The results mark an immediate success for the Arona, the latest addition to the fast-growing SEAT line-up. Still in its launch phase in the UK, it has claimed the ‘Best Small SUV’ title in a hotly contested category, following up a glowing five-star What Car? magazine review. It continues SEAT’s dominance of the category, with its larger brother, the Ateca, having taken the award in 2017.

The What Car? judges referenced the fact that the Arona “is more affordable than most rivals” thanks to “great finance deals” and praised the “comfortable and well-equipped interior.” The impressive range of personalisation options – including the multiple no-cost combinations of contrasting roof and bodywork colour available – were “the cherry on top”.

The New Ibiza carried off the ‘Best Small Car’ title, confirming its pre-eminence in the UK’s supermini class and, like Arona, building on a five-star assessment from What Car’s rigorous road test team. The judges declared: “The Ibiza is everything a small car should be – it’s agile, practical and offers low running costs. There are just no weaknesses in its armour.”

When it comes to a new car for the family at price less than £18,000, the SEAT Leon – also a “best buy” winner in 2017 – was named the top choice. “SEAT is on a roll at the moment,” the judges commented, “and the Leon kicked off its current revival. With a well-crafted interior and a focused driving style…it’s a great win for SEAT at this price point.”

The Ateca (another member of the exclusive What Car? five-star car club) completed the impressive SEAT showing, acclaimed as the ‘Best Family SUV’ for less than £20,000. “Staggering value for money” in the judges’ opinion, the Ateca was rewarded for its impressive equipment features right from entry-level and the “punchy” performance of its 1.0 TSI Ecomotive 115 PS engine, adding a “fun” dimension to the car’s all round excellent functionality.

Commenting on the brand’s impressive night, SEAT UK Director, Richard Harrison, said: “These awards are among the most keenly sought and highly-respected in the car industry and it is a tremendous result for us to have collected so much silverware in one evening. There is a tangible sense of momentum with SEAT currently, and the judges’ comments confirm how we’re succeeding in our mission to give our customers even more style, quality, technology, choice and performance, with value-for-money guaranteed.”
