SEAT Leon Hatchback (00-05)

Value

5 out of 5

180BHP Audi TT with A3/VW bits for under £15,000!

Costs

4 out of 5

Insurance Hurts at group 16. Poor Fuel Economy (circa 26mpg driven hard/easy).

Driving

4 out of 5

Comfortable seats, feels rock solid on motorway, windscreen mists badly if air con is off.

Performance

5 out of 5

Rapid, smooth and safe. Traction control a tad too sensitive when pulling away-especially in wet.

Reliability

3 out of 5

New dash/immobilser parts needed. Water gets past door sills.

Image

4 out of 5

Majority of those not in the know just think it looks nice! Most boy racers won't know what it is--Thankfully. SEAT 'sporting' image is improving. Car enthusiasts know just how good it really is.

Comfort

4 out of 5

Inside comforts good. CD audio excellent. Wheels a pain to get and keep clean.

Maybe better alarm would lower insurance group. Immobiliser should stop it being taken..

Dealer provided much needed car during warranty repair.
