SEAT Leon Hatchback 1.8 20V T Cupra 5d (2004/54) - Owner Review

A pleasure to drive. The weak link for me is the gearbox - compared to the speed of everything else, moving between the gears seems to take too long.

SEAT Leon Hatchback (00-05)

Value

5 out of 5

What else can you get for the money? This has the same inards as the Audi TT, but it's half the price!

Costs

3 out of 5

Uses petrol (30mpg) and insurance will be expensive for inexeperienced or other 'high risk' drivers.

Performance

4 out of 5

It's not a Ferrari, but with 180 BHP it'll beat most things.

Reliability

5 out of 5

Only had it six months. Only problem so far has been an occassionally sticking button on the dash.

Looks the business, in an understated way - perfect for sneaking up on people!

Comfort

4 out of 5

Comfortable up front, but rear is cramped. Sporty suspension may not suit some people, but is fine until you hit a pothole.
