|The Ibiza looks sharp and sporty. Production was down in 2013|
SEAT went rather well in 2013, production up nearly 10% was strong. To understanding the make is difficult for me as they are not sold in NZ. They seem to have a slightly sporty, youthful image but it hasn't worked that well. VW hopes for 500,000 SEAT sales by 2018. From what I can gather:
The Ibiza is a hatchback/estate car which is not that new so production figures are down. The León is as the Ibiza but larger and a newer model, with sales increasing. The Altea and Toledo are combined by VW for production numbers but I am not sure why. The Altea is an MPV made in Spain while the Toledo is a 5 door liftback made in the Czech Republic, in other words a Škoda Rapid.
The Mii is a newish model the same as the VW UP! and Škoda Citigo, all built in Slovakia. I was surprised to see production down considering it's a fresh product. The Alhambra is a large MPV made in Portugal, it's sibling being the VW Sharan. The current version has been around since 2010 and is a solid but modest seller. The Exeo was the top of the range sedan/estate car which finished in 2013, hence the slump in production.
