As part of the Volkswagen group, it’s reassuring to know that SEAT cars are offer quality, safety and reliability. Throw in some Spanish style and flair and SEAT suddenly becomes a lively, charming car that can’t be ignored.
Best known for making practical cars with plenty of space with a top-notch safety record, SEAT successfully combine Latin good looks with cheap running costs. It’s easy to see why SEAT are a hit with our young drivers.
SEAT have a solid range of small cars offering something for everyone and they manage to do it at incredibly good value too. They’re perhaps best known for two distinct models – the Ibiza and the Leon.
The SEAT Ibiza is a fab looking car that has similar proportions to the VW Polo; it’s compact but still has a decent amount of space. It’s the most sensational in the SEAT range as there’s lots of options to style and jazz it up. It’s a sprightly, agile drive that handles well.
The SEAT Leon is a sophisticated little hatchback. Based on the same foundations as the enduring VW Golf and sharing the same forward thinking technology of the VW group, the SEAT Leon is sportier and dare we say it, more fun to drive, whilst giving you excellent value for money.
What is a guarantor?
A guarantor is someone who formally guarantees to pay the finance if the young driver is unable to make the repayments. Before agreeing to become a guarantor for young driver, it is important you check that you would be able to afford the repayments (if they fail to pay the finance instalments), as non-payment pay could affect both yours, and their, credit score and result in repossession of the car.
How does the insurance work?
We offer you a personalised quote based on your age and postcode and the majority of our customers really do get free insurance. We know it's a big outlay buying and insuring your first car. We developed this offer to help ease the pain during what's probably going to be your most expensive year of car insurance – whilst you build up that first year's all important no claims bonus. Our insurance is underwritten by Highway Insurance (part of the Liverpool Victoria Group)
How long until I get my new car?
Good question. It depends on the car you're after and how far you want to go customising it! If you want your car delivered ASAP give us a call on 0333 358 3441 to find out what's available now. If you've got your heart set on a certain colour or upgrade the car may have to be made to order. Whatever your circumstances, our friendly team can talk you through timescales for the different options – and we'll keep you posted on progress until it's delivered.
What is the benefit of adding a guarantor to my finance application?
If you're aged under 21, you're unlikely to have built up much credit history, so approval will be based on your personal circumstances. Having a guarantor increases your chance of being approved - thus allowing you to start building up your credit score.
What happens after the first year?
We'll send you a renewal price, but you don't have to take it and if you can find a more suitable policy somewhere else you can move your insurance (we'll miss you though!)
