For It's a practical and attractive compact estate that will no doubt appeal to people who don’t like small, boxy MPVs.

Against The interior is rather utilitarian and there are some weak engines in the line-up.

Buyer's notes

Target Price team says:

The attraction of Seat’s little estate centres on its good looks, keen pricing, low running costs and relatively generous specification. Haggle hard and you can also expect to get a big discount.

You'd be well advised to avoid the entry-level 1.2 petrol engine and thrummy 1.2-litre three-cylinder diesel; the 1.2 TSI turbo petrol and 1.6 diesel are better bets.

All versions are pretty well equipped, but we think it's worth going for either SE or FR trim. SE gets alloy wheels and stability control, while FR looks sporty and has sat-nav, plus it's available with the best engine (the 1.2 TSI petrol) with a manual gearbox.
