Alternatives

What alternatives should I consider to a used Seat Leon hatchback?

The most obvious rival might be the car on which so much of the Seat Leon is based, the current Volkswagen Golf. Both are similarly fantastic family cars and you can’t go wrong with either. It’s worth mentioning that the Leon is more affordable – and that added value for money is not to be overlooked.  

The Ford Focus has always impressed us for its practicality nearly as much as it has for its driver appeal. It’s a compelling package and one worth a good look if the Leon doesn’t quite float your boat. 

Overview

The Seat Leon is a fantastic all-rounder. Not only does it handle well, come packed with kit and feature a roomy interior, but it’s relatively affordable to buy and run.
