SEAT (pronounced Say-at, not Seet) is a Spanish car manufacturer that was founded in 1950 and quickly became the largest supplier of vehicles in Spain. SEAT was sold to the Volkswagen Group in 1986 and remained one of its subsidiaries.

SEAT currently offers eight models, including the Mii city car, Ibiza supermini, Leon small family car, Arona crossover, Ateca crossover, Tarraco crossover, Alhambra large MPV, and the Cupra.
