SEAT Leon Hatchback 1.8 20V T Cupra 5d (2001/51) - Owner Review

Exciting drive. Loads of grip. Steering a bit numb. Feels like a proper hot hatch (and I've owned a few!)

SEAT Leon Hatchback (00-05)

Value

5 out of 5

More bangs per buck than equivalent VW Golf GTi.

Costs

3 out of 5

Low initial purchase price but servicing and spares very expensive.

Driving

4 out of 5

Exciting drive. Loads of grip. Steering a bit numb. Feels like a proper hot hatch (and I've owned a few!)

Performance

5 out of 5

Loads of grunt - mid range performance is superb.

Reliability

4 out of 5

Usual VW group problems - MAF sensor, coil packs - mines escaped these problems (so far!)

Image

4 out of 5

Cupra models have lifted the SEAT image.

Comfort

4 out of 5

All the extras - electric leather seats on mine which are very nice.
