Which used Seat Leon hatchback should I buy?
Make no mistake, the Leon is a fine car with nearly any of its various engine options, but we prefer the petrol models for their smoothness and flexibility.
The 1.0 TSI three-cylinder is reasonably lively and very economical, as well as being quite fun to drive, so makes plenty of sense if you're on a budget. However, it can’t quite compete with the 1.4 TSI engine, preferably in 148bhp EcoTSI form, which is responsive, powerful enough for most people and economical. If you're buying a Leon from 2017 onwards, then the 1.5 TSI Evo is a great engine, too, in either 130 or 150 form.
