WATCH: Punters get more than they bargained for in “surreal” test drive prank

"There was a snake. I'm not sure it was real. I didn't hang around long enough to find out, to be honest!"

A test drive is normally a fairly relaxed affair. You have a look at a car, take it out for a short spin and then have a think about whether or not it's right for you.

Sounds simple, right?However, the drivers in the video below got more than they were expecting when they were invited to try out the brand new SEAT Leon. SEAT decided to celebrate the launch of their new model with a good-natured test drive prank that the drivers are sure to remember.

The tagline for the new Leon is "This is the moment to live any moment" so SEAT decided to help the drivers in question do just that. With actor Trevor O'Neill posing as a salesperson, seven average punters were taken on a ride to a secret location that would give them a unique experience and show them how to live the moment. Needless to say, they weren't expecting what came next!

The new SEAT Leon has an iconic shape and its design embraces smarter living with a wireless charger, keyless system, parking assistance and more.

The new Leon price starts from €19,195, or as low as €229 per month with PCP. It comes with 0% PCP Finance and €2,500 trade in bonus, with FREE full link technology available on SE, FR and Xcellence models.

In addition, SEAT are offering a three-year service plan for €299 and three years roadside assistance and warranty. To book a test drive, click here
