Seat is celebrating the 25th anniversary of the company’s introduction to the UK.
In September 1985, a handful of dealers across the country introduced British motorists to the Mk I Seat Ibiza.
By the end of 1986, its first full year of operation in the UK, 5922 new Seats had been sold.
That same year, Volkswagen grabbed a 51 per cent stake in Seat and the takeover was completed in 1990.
Seat recorded its peak in UK sales in 2007 when 34,790 cars found their way onto British driveways.
