SEAT Leon Hatchback (00-05)

Value

5 out of 5

Could have paid the same for a two year older A3 T Sport with less power.

Costs

4 out of 5

Not bad so far, considering 32mpg mixed driving. Dealer servicing is 1/3 the cost of my old Rover 416Si!

Driving

4 out of 5

Excellent steering and brakes. Subtle TCS action.

Performance

5 out of 5

Instant pull. Any gear - superb A-road blitzer. 6th gear relaxes motorway driving.

Reliability

4 out of 5

Horn failure at 12k miles. Obligatory coil failure at 17k, otherwise faultless.

No wings or spoilers to attract the rozzers. Avoid lary yellow boy-racer cars and drive the ultimate 'sleeper'.

Comfort

4 out of 5

A little snug in the back for adults. Excellent driving position adjustability with plenty of support from the front seats.
