Review continues below...

After years in the doldrums, Seat is on a roll at the moment, with the latest Ibiza and Ateca SUV garnering praise. However, it was the current Leon that kicked off the brand's revival back in 2012 and this stylish family hatchback was subsequently refreshed in 2017.

The refresh brought an updated 1.6-litre diesel engine and a new turbocharged 1.0-litre petrol, plus new safety, infotainment and convenience tech.

Under the skin, the Leon is closely related to the Audi A3, Skoda Octavia and Volkswagen Golf, while rivals from outside the VW Group include the big-selling Ford Focus and Vauxhall Astra.

Here, we're concentrating on the five-door Leon, but there's also an ST estate.
