SEAT Leon Hatchback (00-05)

Value

5 out of 5

So much better VFM than Audi or VW but similar quality. No CD player when new, which I thought was a bit tight.

Costs

3 out of 5

Dealer servicing good prices, except 40k mile service.

Driving

4 out of 5

Handles well and quite nippy at low speeds.

Performance

3 out of 5

Pretty reasonable, I should think 1.4 is a bit gutless.

Reliability

3 out of 5

A bit tough to start a couple of times, otherwise good.

Great when new (2001), flagging a little now.

Comfort

4 out of 5

Good seats, useful left foot rest, annoyingly low door arm rest for right elbow.
