SEAT Leon Hatchback (00-05)

Value

5 out of 5

Is leased so 'no worries'. A lot of car for the money.

Costs

3 out of 5

£80 for the first service seemed steep.

Driving

4 out of 5

Suspension supple enough for comfortable cruising, stiff enough for 'spirited' country lane fun!

Performance

5 out of 5

Deceptively quick - 70mph feels more like 50! Fast enough to leave BMW 323s behind!

Reliability

5 out of 5

Only minor trim niggles so far - horn keeps getting flooded in wet weather!

VERY underrated! Most people don't realise SEAT is part of VAG.

Comfort

4 out of 5

Excellent driving position, limited rear legroom. Comfortable on long distances/
