Review

The latest Seat Leon is a fantastic all-rounder. If you're looking for a fun-to-drive family hatchback with a roomy interior and loads of standard kit, it should be right at the top of your shortlist.

get the best price

Don’t dismiss entry-level SE trim; it’s surprisingly well equipped. You get 16in alloys, air-conditioning, keyless start, cruise control and even metallic paint coming standard.

The acceleration this offers won’t exactly take your breath away, but it’s a really flexible engine, meaning there’s plenty of pull at low engine revs all the way up to 6000rpm and beyond. It’s much cheaper than the TSI 150 engine, too.
