The Seat Leon is a fantastic all-rounder. Not only is it great to drive, well equipped and exceptionally roomy in the back, but it should also prove relatively cheap to run thanks to the frugality promised by its petrol engines – especially the 1.5 TSI 130. Indeed, its blend of talents make it one of the very best family cars.

Xcellence Lux includes all the Xcellence kit, then adds larger 18in alloy wheels, wraparound interior lighting, leather seats and adaptive cruise control. It's very pricey, though.

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.
