SEAT Leon Hatchback (00-05)

Value

5 out of 5

Fabulous car for the money

Costs

3 out of 5

Insurance steep at group 16. Good economy for the performance. Not had it long enough to experience servicing costs

Driving

5 out of 5

Smooth and comfortable. Good sound insulation. Well appointed cabin.

Performance

5 out of 5

Blistering!! 0-60 around 7.5 secs. amd 140+ top end. In-gear acceleration makes real-world driving enjoyable again. Overtaking quick and safe - pulls really well even at low revs

Reliability

5 out of 5

All is well in 3 months ownership, but not driven daily. Part of VW group, so don't expect any problems

Image

Love the fact that it's still an unrecognised gem. Understated and fairly anonymous (unlike later ""kitted"" versions) . A real wolf in sheep's clothing

Comfort

4 out of 5

Ride is very secure and just a little firm (as you'd expect). Seats comfy and range of adjustment quite extensive. Surprised at omission of lumbar support adjestment though? A bit cramped for 5, but great for 4 (..unless they're all giants!!)
