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: Cupra Lux

Engine: 2.0 TSI 290

The Leon Cupra hatchback’s engine produces 286bhp. It feels effortlessly muscular across the rev range, though, and takes you from 0-62mph in 6.0sec dead. As the hatchback only has two driven wheels, do be aware it struggles to put its power down in the wet. We reckon there are much better hot hatch alternatives, such as the Renault Megane RS and Honda Civic Type R.
