Performance

5 out of 5

Can't fault. Will never go back to a 5 speed box.

Reliability

4 out of 5

VAG coils replaced under warranty. Faulty petrol flap catch £50 replaced. Door seals failed and 2 inches of rainwater inside vehicle. Replaced under warranty but disappointing damp smell occasionally!

Image

5 out of 5

A real wolf in sheeps clothing. A real turning point for the SEAT image. To look at it no-one would ever guess it's capabilities.

Comfort

5 out of 5

Very solid and firm ride. Some understeer when cornering quickly.

No problems so far - fingers crossed. Would have thought a better quality FF alarm for this type of car should be standard.
