This year has seen substantial investment and the redevelopment of the Robinsons Motor Group dealership on Goddard Road, Ipswich.

The Goddard Road dealership offers the complete New Seat car range, from the exciting new Mii City car with zero rate road tax, to the multi award winning Alhambra 7 seater.

The Alhambra was Best MPV in the What Car? Awards 2013. A wide selection of Approved-Used SEATs are also available at the Ipswich site.

The dealership is the authorised repairer for Saab, and is also home to Auto Devotion, offering an extensive range of quality used vehicles.
