Skoda and Seat might be part of the Volkswagen Group, but the two brands spend much of the tail end of 2012 at loggerheads on discount prices.
That trend showed little sign of slowing at the start of the new year, with substantial discounts on a number of models across both ranges.
The Skoda Roomster is an odd-ball MPV that's never sold in huge numbers. That's partly been down to pricing, though - and now Skoda has extended its Pay no VAT offer to include it. Our Target Price buyers have found deals as low as 12,106 on the Roomster 1.2 TSI SE; that's a saving of almost 2500.
The Pay no VAT scheme is also being rolled out across more of the Fabia range. You can pick up a 1.2 70 Estate version of the supermini for 10,364, almost 2000 less than list price.
Seat is also reviewing its prices. It recently reduced its bonus support to tighten up on discounting on some Ibizas, but increased its determination to shift other selected versions. You can get the Ibiza 1.2 TDI 75 A/C for 11,126, saving 1789 on the list price.
Remember, the What Car? Target Price is the most you should pay for a new car.
It is worked out by our mystery shoppers who haggle with dealers so you don't have to.
If your dealer denies all knowledge of Target Price or simply refuses to play ball, call our team on 0845 591 7485 and we'll find you a salesman who'll do the deal.
