SEAT Leon Hatchback 1.8 20V SE 5d (2000/X) - Owner Review

Handles well on A and B roads corners like its on rails but you need to get the right tyres fitted. can be used as ordinary family car or to blast the country roads with a big grin on your face.

SEAT Leon Hatchback (00-05)

Value

3 out of 5

Climate control, 4 electric windows, electric folding mirrors. most of these are optional extras on most other makes.

Costs

3 out of 5

Average MPG but does drink a bit when pushed hard, but what car doesn't. Servicing costs can be high but its best to shop around as different dealers have different rates.

Performance

4 out of 5

Very quick from start and through the gears but could do with a sixth gear for motorway speeds. Its amazing what you can get from a naturally aspirated 1.8 engine.

Reliability

5 out of 5

No major problems as yet apart from slight hesitation when pulling away and changing gear.

Image

4 out of 5

A wolf in sheep's clothing, looks like any old family hatchback with hidden twin exhausts and no big spoilers. Looks sportier than the Golf especially in Red.

Comfort

4 out of 5

Lots of adjustment on steering wheel and seats means you can find the right driving position no matter how tall you are.
