SEAT Leon Hatchback 1.8 20V T Cupra 5d (2000/X) - Owner Review

Great driver's car. Refined when plodding around, or very quick when you want it to be.

SEAT Leon Hatchback (00-05)

Value

5 out of 5

Excellent value for money - very hard to find a car that is better value for money.

Costs

3 out of 5

MPG is lower than manufacturer states (As with all cars). Normally get 30-32mpg.

Driving

4 out of 5

Great driver's car. Refined when plodding around, or very quick when you want it to be.

Performance

4 out of 5

Quick as standard. Can be chipped for around £600 to get 0-60 times of around 6 seconds. Good pulling power in any gear due to high torque.

Reliability

3 out of 5

A reliable car that has had a couple of minor problems pop up with it, that have all been dealt with by the manufacturer. No different than any other brand new car.

Excellent Q-car.

Comfort

3 out of 5

Test drove one with leather that was very very comfortable. Didn't buy leather in the end, but car is still comfortable - just not as much!

Security

4 out of 5

Good security. Immobiliser and alarm (which IS Thatcham category 2 approved on all new Cupras since May 2002). Doors re-lock after 30 seconds if not opened after unlocking.

Service

3 out of 5

Marked average as I've been to a couple of dealers. One was great, the other crap.
