The Seat Leon is a good all-rounder if you're looking for a competitively priced family car. Just be aware there are better alternatives available, such as the Ford Focus, Skoda Octavia and VW Golf, which are better in key areas, like ride quality and practicality.get the best price
Trim: SE Dynamic
SE Dynamic is the one to go for. For a still reasonable list price it adds privacy glass, 17in alloys wheels, sat-nav and front and rear parking sensors.
Engine: 1.0 TSI
If you're on a budget and looking on with envy at the higher-power engines in the Leon's range, don't fret: we think the 113bhp 1.0-litre petrol is a belter. It’s as peppy as a Focus 1.0 125 Ecoboost, giving good acceleration when you put your foot down (officially the 0-62mph time is 9.8sec) and, being turbocharged, it has a decent amount of shove. So, from around 1500rpm it's agreeably flexible. Officially it'll yield up to 52.3mpg but, being a three-cylinder, it sounds thrummy when revved.
