SEAT Leon Hatchback (00-05)

Value

3 out of 5

Not bad is suppose because its a VW engine etc.

Costs

4 out of 5

Reasonably cheap parts and running costs are low. I'm getting 35mpg all the time. Higher on m-way's.

Driving

Very smooth car to drive. Feels very safe and strong whilst driving.

Performance

3 out of 5

Not bad for a 1.4 considering weight. Could have given the 1.4 a little more power, but its a VW engine, that's the main thing.

Reliability

5 out of 5

Haven't had one problem with the running of the car yet.

Very comfortable driving position. Various adjustments for comfort. Passenger side again very comfy, but a little cramped for adults in back.
