Seat wins two gongs at Scottish car awards

Seat wins two gongs at Scottish car awards

Spanish manufacturer Seat has emerged victorious from the 2010 Scottish Car of the Year Awards, held last week, where the Leon stamped its authority by scooping two gongs.

The Association of Scottish Motoring Writers was impressed by the Leon Ecomotive's environmental friendliness and awarded it the Eco Car of the Year award.

A second accolade, the Sporting Car of the Year award, was awarded to the Seat Leon Cupra, beating off stiff competition from the sporty coupe Peugeot RCZ, which was the runner-up in the category.

Speaking at the event, John Murdoch, president of the Association of Scottish Motoring Writers, said: "We sampled some superb new cars during the past 12 months and our task of selecting the category winners was not an easy one.

"Despite tough times in the motoring industry, some truly excellent new cars are still being launched and manufacturers are responding well to the many challenges they currently face."

Meanwhile, the company is currently running a promotion that gives motorists the chance to purchase a selected Seat model with no VAT until the end of 2010.ADNFCR-3205-ID-800223738-ADNFCR
