Seat first successful Spanish car company
Although in many European countries car manufacturers shot up like mushrooms at the beginning of the 20th century, this was considerably less the case in Spain. There were, of course, some small carmakers, but they mainly focused on the upper segment. In the affordable class there was not much to choose for the Spanish population, which also had very little to spend due to the moderate economic situation in those years. At the beginning of the 20th century, Spain lagged behind many other European countries. The Spanish civil war, which raged from 1936 to 1939, obviously did not help.
When peace and quiet had been restored to some extent in Spain in 1940, a number of banks suggested the idea of establishing a national car brand. The government, under the leadership of the then dictator Franco, also saw this idea as a success. Because the Second World War broke out at that time, it was considered unwise to start the business immediately. In the end, this was the case in 1950. At that time, Seat was founded by the same alliance of banks in cooperation with the government. Because the company had to start from scratch, it was looking for a reliable partner with sufficient knowledge. This became Fiat
because it had already proven itself capable of growing in a market similar to that of Spain, namely Italy.
Seat starts production and grows steadily in its own country
The first car Seat made was the Seat 1400
in 1953. However, the impact of the first models was relatively low, as the price of these cars was quite high. The vast majority of the population was unable to pay for these cars. However, good steps were taken towards independence and the complete production in Spain of the cars and all parts. Seat's greatest success followed in 1957 when the Seat 600
based on the Fiat 600
went into production. For many, this car is a symbol of the Spanish economic miracle. The affordable car was sold very much and allowed more and more families to travel further for work and recreation. As a result, this car also had a major impact on the Spanish economy on a wider scale.
In the 1980s, major investments were needed to ensure that Seat could continue to grow. Fiat was unwilling and/or unable to cooperate, and the Spanish authorities, which still had a hand in the company's business, decided to end their cooperation with Fiat. As a result, from 1982 onwards, no rebadged models of Fiat were made by Seat. However, stopping this cooperation was the sign for Volkswagen
to take over. Already one year later, in 1983, the Spanish and German companies signed an agreement. This ultimately resulted in the complete takeover of Seat by Volkswagen in 1990. Since then, Seat has grown into an almost worldwide available car brand with some very successful models behind its name. These include the:
The Seat Cordoba for more than fifteen years a bestseller
The handy and versatile Seat Cordoba was first sold in 1993 and was in production until 2009. This Seat model has been manufactured as a station wagon, coupe, hatchback and sedan. This made it a suitable car for a large audience. Two different versions have been published. The Seat Cordoba Mk1 was sold from 1993 to 2002 and the Mk2 from 2002 to 2009. The first generation of the Seat Cordoba is strongly related to various models of both Volkswagen and Seat. These are for example the:
All use the same Volkswagen platform and are also available with very similar engines. The advantage of the Seat Cordoba compared with the other similar models within the Volkswagen group was, among other things, its very sporty appearance. It was not for nothing that the Seat Cordoba was also used in rally sports.
The second generation of the Seat Cordoba then has similarities with the Seat Ibiza Mk3, Volkswagen Polo
Mk4 and the Skoda Fabia
Mk1 and Mk2. The Seat Cordoba windscreen was not redesigned, therefore, as with the first generation, a Seat Ibiza windscreen
was used. The Seat Cordoba Mk2 was only available as a sedan and was therefore considerably less successful than its predecessor. That is why the car was taken out of production in 2009. The Seat Ibiza ST and the Seat Toledo
can be seen as the natural successors of this model.
Replace Seat Cordoba windscreen
Damage to the windscreen can occur in many ways. In the event of an accident, rubble or vandalism, for example, the car window can be damaged. It's certainly not the case that the replacement of the Seat Cordoba windscreen is directly necessary when you have glass damage. This is because the windscreens of all cars are made of laminated glass. This glass consists of three layers: two layers of glass and one layer of PVB film. These layers are heated quickly and cooled down slowly, which makes the windscreens very strong. In case of a hard impact, the car window will not break into thousands of pieces. At most, there will be an asterisk or a crack.
An asterisk can often be repaired, but when it comes to a crack, the windscreen replacement of the Seat Cordoba is really necessary. You can then have the automotive glass replaced by a brand dealer, but you can certainly not find the lowest price there. This is because brand dealers have a monopoly on the sale of branded car windows. Because of this monopoly, they are demanding higher prices than necessary. Via us you can quickly and easily buy after market car windows. This automotive glass come from exactly the same factory and is of the same high quality as car windows with a brand logo. Due to the absence of the logo, they may also be sold by other parties and this makes the price a lot better for you. So it's best to replace the Seat Cordoba windscreen through us.
