Seat has announced that business and fleet customers will now be able to test-drive its Ateca crossover for up to four days.
According to the Spanish firm, the extended test drive will allow drivers and their businesses to see how well it can slot into their businesses.
"A test drive is one of the most important stages of choosing a new car; it's a time for decision-makers to consider whether a new vehicle will help them achieve business objectives and project the image they really want. So, we wanted to give them the chance to really get to know the Ateca and all of the benefits it delivers," said Peter MacDonald, head of fleet and business at Seat UK.
The Ateca is a crucial car for Seat, it marks the start of the Spanish firm's largest-ever product offensive, the first of four new cars to be launched over the next 18 months, and it's also the carmaker's first stab at the hugely popular, and still growing, SUV market.
Engine-wise, it's the 113hp 1.6-litre diesel that is likely to appeal to company car drivers. Headline figures are competitive rather than class-leading, with the car emitting 114g/km of CO2 alongside an official combined fuel economy of 65.7mpg.
