The Spanish brand oversaw a 33.7% increase in overall fleet sales and an impressive 49.4% increase in true fleet sales – that was despite an overall market decline of –4.5%.

The growth was achieved despite a managed 23.7% reduction in rental units and a drop in residual values. The encouraging results arrive in a year which saw Seat add the all-new Ibiza to its line-up, as well as experiencing continued success of its Ateca SUV.

Peter McDonald, Seat UK’s head of fleet and business sales, said: “As a brand we’ve made big steps in recent years, bolstering our team of fleet professionals, refining the buying process and offering a range of models which are attracting rave reviews while meeting the needs of fleet managers and drivers alike.”

With the all-new Arona crossover now available to order, Seat will be looking to keep up its performance through 2018.

McDonald commented: “Last year was extremely challenging from an industry perspective; considering that environment our performance is something we are especially proud of and we hope to continue to provide products and service levels which exceed the expectations of fleets.”

It’s still possible for business and fleet drivers to take advantage of Seat’s four-day extended test drive, an initiative that was introduced with the Ateca.

Available via Seat dealers and Business Centre specialists across the UK, the scheme enables dealers to provide an easy and swift way for company users to access brand new vehicles. You can find out more here.
