Alternations to our Opening Hours

Our Service and Sales Departments remain open until 31 March. The opening hours have changed and how we conduct business, but we are still here to help. Like all businesses, we have been closely monitoring the impact that COVID-19 is having on our business, our colleagues and customers. We are very much respectful of the latest Government message that we all need to play our part to protect the most vulnerable and ensure that the NHS has the ability to care for the increased number of patients. Motorvogue have therefore decided to operate with minimal staff until the 31 March to enable our customers to have the essential safety works completed on their vehicles through our service department, including servicing, MOTs and repairs. It is more important than ever that we can support and assist Key workers in achieving their roles, and we sincerely thank our colleagues who are working with us to remain open to do so. Our Sales showrooms are no longer open to the public, however customers who have recently purchased a car will be able to collect these on an arranged appointment, when we will ensure that no other visitors will be with us at the same time. All of our Used cars can be seen on our website as well as our New car offers, and we will be available on the telephone or via our website contact form for further details on our vehicles and availability. Once safe to do so, we will once again offer our Test Drive at Your Home service and the option to have a purchased vehicle delivered to you for £99 within 150 miles, and nationwide for £199. Over the coming week, the Motorvogue Team will work together to care for our customers and look after each others well-being. This is a situation that we have not had to deal with before; we are in uncharted territory and will be learning and changing as the situation evolves. We will close on the 1st April and will communicate our future decisions as we adapt to the situation. As a minimum we are hoping to offer breakdown support to vehicles which are recovered even after this date, with secure parking for their vehicle and the loan of a car to keep our customers mobile until such time as their vehicle can be repaired. Contact telephone numbers will be made available as we move to an Emergency Support service for owners of all of the brands we represent, and as advice begins to be more positive we will once again be taking Aftersales Bookings for maintenance, service and MOTs. Please check our website and social media channels for future developments. In the meantime, please take care and we look forward to seeing you again in the near future.

SEAT TARRACO WINS BEST LARGE SUV AT AUTO EXPRESS AWARDS 2019

SEAT Tarraco beats tough competition to win Best Large SUV just three months after launching in UK, at the Auto Express Awards. The Tarraco – an all-new model for the SEAT brand – was praised by the weekly publication’s panel of judges for its versatility, boot space and reasonable price tag. Of the decision to award the Tarraco Best Large SUV, Steve Fowler, Editor-in-Chief at Auto Express, said: “The Tarraco is the first large, seven-seat SUV from SEAT, and it’s a remarkable first effort. It features a high-quality, upmarket interior that’s also versatile and practical. The cabin is neatly designed and easy to live with, while the long list of equipment includes an excellent infotainment system that responds quickly and has solid smartphone connectivity. The huge 700-litre boot that you get when you fold the third row down into the floor is very useful, and the load bay is nice and flat, boosting versatility. The Tarraco is also smooth on long runs and fun on twisting roads, while it packs a versatile range of engines, making it a well-priced do-it-all SUV.” Richard Harrison, Managing Director, SEAT UK, said: “We’ve already had great feedback from customers since Tarraco launched in the UK just a few months ago, with early sales contributing to SEAT UK’s record-breaking first half year of sales. A fitting flagship to the SEAT range, Tarraco comes standard with seven seats, economical powertrains, a fresh new-look design as well as a top quality interior, and the easymove range line-up includes everything you could need as standard, including metallic paint within the price, making it great value for money. We are delighted and honoured that the experts at Auto Express have named Tarraco as the best large SUV you can buy today, making it the perfect car to complete our multi-award winning SUV line-up.” SEAT’s biggest product offensive reached its climax with the introduction of the brand’s new flagship model, the Tarraco. The new SUV blends the key attributes of every vehicle in the SEAT range – design and functionality, sportiness and comfort, technology and emotion – but in a form that suits a wider variety of lifestyles. Tarraco is available with four trim levels: SE, SE Technology, XCELLENCE and XCELLENCE LUX. FR and FR Sport will be added at a later date. There is a choice of five powertrains: two petrol – 1.5 TSI 150PS in manual and 2.0 TSI 190PS in DSG with 4Drive – and three diesel – 2.0 TDI 150PS available in manual and DSG with 4Drive, and a 2.0 TDI 190PS in DSG with 4Drive only. The seven-seater has respectable boot capacities of 230-litres (2nd and 3rd row upright), 700-litres (with third row folded and 2nd row upright) and 1,775-litres (with 2nd and 3rd rows folded. Find out more about the Tarraco and Test Drive at our Motorvogue SEAT Showrooms in Bedford and Northampton.
