Pulman SEAT Is Getting A Makeover!

Pulman SEAT are investing in a full retailer revamp which has already begun and expected to finish by July 2019 but don’t worry business is still open as usual…

It’s a very exciting time for Pulman as a company; the SEAT showroom was the third dealership launched by Pulman in 2010 so that’s nearly 10 years ago since it has been updated!

A huge 6-figure investment is being put into this 9-week refurbishment so you can expect to see BIG changes! Not only is the showroom going through a revamp but the workshop, back offices and external areas are also receiving some much needed toolbox treatment too!

So what changes can you expect to see once the revamp is complete? Think sleek and contemporary with the added sportiness feel of the newly branded CUPRA corner! While you wait for your service or appointment, why not sit back and relax in the new hospitality area which will offer a selection of hot drinks alongside a range of snacks.

Step inside the showroom and the new layout will be inspired by SEAT’s home origin; all of the desks and display areas are within diamond cut diagonal lines, much like the Avinguda Diagonal in Barcelona (the widest avenue in Barcelona separating the hustle and bustle of the city from the mountains and most charming and exclusive neighbourhoods). So, if you wish to get away from the noise you may find at other dealers, step inside the exclusive Pulman SEAT showroom.

Although this is a huge project for Pulman SEAT, the showroom is still open for business as usual, the only change you may see is that the service reception has temporarily been moved to the main showroom!
