SEAT Leon Hatchback (00-05)

Value

5 out of 5

Can't fault it, lots of bang for the buck.

Costs

4 out of 5

Cheap as buttons to run apart from fuel (32-odd mpg).

Driving

4 out of 5

Fast and fun, pretty chuckable, bit wobbly on the limit.

Performance

5 out of 5

Rapid. Gives GTi drivers a fright. Wonder what the Cupra-R would be like…

Reliability

3 out of 5

Once the sodding VAG coils got replaced (again) it's been A-OK.

Looks like a family hatch, but goes like stink. Fantastic.

Comfort

4 out of 5

Ride hard (but hey, it's sporty). Seats very comfy.
