History[edit]

There is no mention in the article to the fact that all the actual models have spanish important city names. I think is the only company of the world that does this. Template:Sign your posts

ActuaLLY, many American companies name their cars after cities: Chevy Malivu, Cherokee Laredo, Dodge Durango, etc. No mention will be given to that effect. quimero 01:22, 20 May 2009 (UTC)

Pronunciation[edit]

I only know SEAT from Italy where my grandparents have one. Is it the standard to pronounce the name 'say-ott' as opposed to 'seet'? Might be something good to add to the beggining of the article if this is true. ABart26 05:22, 8 August 2006 (UTC)

In Spain, the pronunciation is 'seh-at'. --YuriBCN 20:09, 15 March 2008 (UTC) —Preceding unsigned comment added by YuriBCN (talkcontribs)

When the marque was first introduced to Australia in the 90's, the advertising campaign said it was pronounced "say-it". matturn (talk) 10:20, 11 January 2009 (UTC)

History[edit]

Here in Mexico SEAT has been marketed for a number of years-I would guess that this counts as 'international-outside of Europe'. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Lyricmac (talkcontribs) 03:45, 1 February 2007 (UTC).

Translation[edit]

I would translate "Sociedad Española de Automóviles de Turismo" as "Spanish Saloon Car Company" (Commonwealth English) or "Spanish Sedan Car Company" (US English). Touring is used by BMW and Mercedes for its station wagon/estate car models. It is considered historical (see Car body style).
If no one contests this, I shall replace the current, literal, "Spanish Society of Touring Cars". --YuriBCN 17:26, 15 October 2007 (UTC)

Spanish pronunciation[edit]

I'm from Spain and nobody here says [se'at], the correct spanish pronunciation is ['seat]. I've already edited it.--88.2.65.87 (User talk:88.2.65.87 talk<nowiki>Insert non-formatted text here<nowiki>Insert non-formatted text here<nowiki>Insert non-formatted text here

The result of the move request was: Not done (page mover closure) - opposition is strong and unanimous. DrStrauss talk 20:44, 5 July 2017 (UTC)



SEATSeat (automobile) – I believe the users who named this article made a mistake. According to WP:TRADEMARK, any company whose name is officially capital letters, should be titled in lowercase letters in Wikipedia, even if the marque prefers people to use this name. For example, ROBLOX is Roblox, TIME is Time, MINI is Mini (marque), The PLAYERS Championship is The Players Championship, and etc. I believe this should be renamed to "Seat (automobile)", since if we name this "SEAT", that doesn't follow the guidelines on titles based on trademarks.

  • Oppose Sociedad Española de Automóviles de Turismo is an acronym In ictu oculi (talk) 19:33, 28 June 2017 (UTC)
  • Oppose - They should have stated this in the first sentence of the article, but the exception for this rule is that if the name is initialized, it should stay capitalized. I believe you didn't notice this because they did not put the words respresenting the title in parentheses. Such as BMW. GAMING77 (talk) 22:08, 28 June 2017 (UTC)
  • Oppose move. SEAT is an acronym.  ONR  (talk)  02:38, 29 June 2017 (UTC)
  • "Seat (automobile)" to me shouts "seat for sitting on, in a car". Leave it uppercase :: it is an acronym (Sociedad Española de Automóviles de Turismo) in Spanish. Anthony Appleyard (talk) 14:43, 29 June 2017 (UTC)
  • Oppose it's an acronym. Similar situation to IKEA. feminist 02:30, 2 July 2017 (UTC)
  • Oppose – per arguments, it is an acronym. 2601:8C:4001:DCB9:8D59:52:D006:4B72 (talk) 12:06, 2 July 2017 (UTC)
