SEAT, S.A. (English pronunciation: [ˈsɛːat], "seh-at"; Spanish pronunciation: [seˈat]) is a Spanish automobile manufacturer founded in 1950 by the Instituto Nacional de Industria (INI) with Fiat assistance, and now subsidiary of the Volkswagen Group.

Today, SEAT reinforces its race-bred, and aggressive image, with sporty-styled cars, such as Ibiza and León, which have made the brand very popular among teenagers.[citation needed] The SEAT Ibiza is a supermini manufactured by the Volkswagen Group and sold under the SEAT brand. ... The SEAT León (pronounced Leh-On) is a small family car built by the Spanish car manufacturer SEAT since 1999. ...


Initially, SEAT manufactured rebadged Fiat models that differed very little visually from the products of the Italian parent. The SEAT Panda (later restyled as SEAT Marbella) for example was based on the Fiat Panda. The SEAT 600, based on Fiat 600, was the first car for many Spanish families, and became a symbol of the Spanish Miracle.

The first car under the new SEAT logo without Fiat involvement appeared in 1982, and was called the SEAT Ronda. This was a restyled Fiat Ritmo, and sparked a lawsuit from Fiat against SEAT, as the former claimed the car was still too similar to the Ritmo. The then president of SEAT, Juan Miguel Antoñanzas, showed a Ronda to the press with all the parts different from the Fiat Ritmo painted in bright yellow, to highlight the differences. This ended the dispute. Rumour at the time had it that Fiat was angry because the Ronda restyling was in fact too close to their own planned restyling for the Fiat Ritmo, which they had to scrap. A 1986 white Ronda The SEAT Ronda was a rebadged version of a Fiat Ritmo made by SEAT from 1981 to 1986. ... This article is about the Fiat Ritmo (Strada). ...


After the withdrawal of Fiat in 1981, the Volkswagen Group signed a cooperation agreement with SEAT, becoming the major shareholder in 1986, and owner of 100% of the company in 1990.

Facilities

SEAT has its manufacturing facilities in Martorell, an industrial town close to Barcelona. The development facilities are some of the newest in the Volkswagen group. For example, the development and design of the Audi Q7 took place there. Martorell is a town near Barcelona, in Catalonia, Spain, primarily known for an ancient Roman bridge and as one of the most notorious knot of toll autoroutes in Catalonia. ...

The Audi Q7 is a full-size luxury SUV produced by German automaker Audi since 2006. ...


SEAT, instead of being a mere part of VW, develops its own designs[citation needed]. Every year, its improvements make its cars a new standard for the European automobile industry[citation needed], in fact, the Seat Leon has been recently recognized by the German press as the most competitive model of the year[citation needed], wining the award against other cars like VW Golf, Škoda Octavia and Audi A4. The Volkswagen Golf (Mk1 and Mk5 badged as Volkswagen Rabbit in the United States and Canada, Mk1 badged as Volkswagen Caribe in Mexico) is a compact car/small family car manufactured by Volkswagen. ...

Presence in different markets

The company develops and designs its own models of cars in accordance with the policies of the Volkswagen Group. Some of its cars have been sold outside Europe, badged as Volkswagens, such as the SEAT Ibiza hatchback, known in South Africa as the Volkswagen Polo Playa, the SEAT Inca panel van as the Volkswagen Caddy, or the SEAT Córdoba also known as the Volkswagen Polo Classic.

Rumours of a SEAT model being sold as a Volkswagen in Canada and the United States to supplement the VW brand's lineup there have occasionally circulated, but have always been unsubstantiated, and ultimately proven to be false. SEAT markets 6 models in Mexico, and has dealer presence in 27 Mexican states [1].


SEAT's presence in international markets (outside of Europe) has yet to be realised, with the failed plan to launch SEAT in Canada in 1994, and with the withdrawing of SEAT from the Australian market after only selling its range from 1995-1999. SEAT is also positioned to launch in the United States sometime after 2008, although this has yet to be verified as a certainty. SEAT currently continues to expand to international markets under Volkswagen's wings, particularly in the Middle East and Asia.

SEAT in Motorsport

Since the Volkswagen takeover in 1990, SEAT has been increasing its presense in the motorsport world. This was mainly down to VWs plan on focusing the SEAT brand as 'sporty', to appeal to the younger generation of drivers. VW redirects here. ...


Rallying

SEATs first serious attempt at a World Rally Championship title was burdened on the small Ibiza, a 1.6L normally aspirated front wheel drive car with its roots in the Volkswagen Golf. The Ibiza allowed the company to start building its rallying experience, and was officially engaged in some European national championships. The years went by and little success followed until a 2L version of the Ibiza was homologated as a kit-car and extra large tracks, wheels, brakes, everything, were fitted to it as the FIA kit-car regulations allow. With these attributes the car made it to be the three times the 2L World Champion ('96, '97, '98), proving its maker had accumulated enough experience, and budgets, to take a chance at the reign category, the WRC class of rallying cars. The World Rally Championship (WRC) is a rallying series organised by the FIA, culminating with a champion driver and manufacturer. ... “Ebusus” redirects here. ...

WRC is a three-letter abbreviation with multiple meanings, as described below: World Rally Championship, a series of automobile rally races and World Rally Car, the class of cars involved in them Will Rice College, a residential college of Rice University Western Reserve College, a prep school in Hudson, Ohio...


SEATs three conquests of the 2L FIA title, and the sport's popularity in Spain, probably convinced Volkswagen Group management to go further, and allocate sufficient budgets to the Seat Sport department so as to allow it a chance to reach its goal. This situation came to a sad ending in September 2000, when the company's, German, upper management revoked its decision, and budgets, forcing Seat Sport to retire from the World Rally Championship. The absence of convincing results must have certainly helped the management's decision.

SEATs project to build a WRC-spec car was officially announced during the 1997 San Remo rally. It was in 1998 that the Cordoba WRC was first enrolled by the company to compete at the highest level of WRC racing. The Cordoba was based on the family sedan of the same name but was, naturally, a WRC class car. It had a 4 cylinder turbocharged engine, full time four-wheel drive and active differentials were involved in its transmission. However, the short wheelbase and high-mounted engine (compared to its rivals) worked against the Cordoba, and results weren't impressive. Despite hiring ex-WRC champion Didier Auriol, and a new evolution of the car, SEAT pulled out of international rallying at the end of 2000 Year 1998 (MCMXCVIII) was a common year starting on Thursday (link will display full 1998 Gregorian calendar). ...

In Spain people used to joke about the car translating its letters as Siempre Estamos Apretando Tornillos, which literally means "We Are Always Tightening Screws", implying that the cars need to be fixed often.
