In the 2011 Scottish Car of the Year awards, SEAT has been presented with the Eco Award and MPV of the Year award.

The awards were presented by the Association of Scottish Motoring Writers (ASMW).

The Eco Award was presented to the SEAT Ibiza E Ecomotive. President of the ASMW, John Murdoch, said "Saving fuel and saving the planet don't mean saving on quality, comfort or driving pleasure.

"All of our contenders for the Eco Award more than satisfy with their economy and tax-busting emissions, but one car – the SEAT Ibiza E Ecomotive – stands out for us as 2011’s best environmentally aware machine.

"It's a car that just keeps on cutting the cost of driving, which always appeals to our Scottish hearts and wallets!"

The SEAT Ibiza E Ecomotive is powered by a 75PS 1.2 litre, three cylinder, turbodiesel engine, offering 91.1mpg on the extra urban cycle and 92g/km CO2, meaning Road Tax exemption and a theoretical range of more than 900 miles.

Meanwhile, the SEAT Alhambra was named Scottish MPV of the Year. John Murdoch said: "2011 has seen a profusion of brilliant MPVs, cars that can fulfil many and varied roles in the lives of their owners. More than most, Scottish buyers need a car that can cope with the rigours of life while delivering a great drive and fine fuel economy.

"Our winner does all this and more, thanks to its classy and adaptable seating. A truly multi-talented MPV and deserved winner."

SEAT UK Managing Director, Peter Wyhinny, said: "Scottish drivers are, clearly, turning to SEAT’s mix of style, quality, dynamic ability and great value in rapidly increasing numbers.

"That two of our most successful models have been honoured by the Association of Scottish Motoring Writers only serves to underline how important Scotland is to the success of SEAT in the UK."
