Seat Leon hatchback 2019 front tracking

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.

Trim: SE

No Leon is short of standard equipment. Even this entry-level SE model comes with a leather-trimmed steering wheel, air-con, 16in alloy wheels, electrically operated and heated door mirrors, electric windows, cruise control and metallic paint. Infotainment includes an 8.0in touchscreen, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Bluetooth and a DAB radio. The driver also gets height and lumbar adjustment as standard.

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.
