The Seat Leon is attractively priced and has pretty high levels of equipment, it is a family hatchback that offers an impressive range, the total includes 19 different versions with nine different engines, five petrol and four Diesel, four different gearboxes (five and six-speed manual, and six and seven-speed DSG), and three trim levels, Reference, Style and Sport, in addition to a new entry version and the sportiest FR model and the Seat Leon Cupra 237bhp version.

The Seat Leon suspension is similar to the VW Golf but has a sportier firmer set up. It offers good grip and body control and is a comfortable ride at high speeds. All models are fitted with stability control, plus front, side and curtain airbags. The car has achieved a four-star rating in Euro NCAP crash tests, and all models have an electronic limited-slip differential for better traction.

The interior of the Seat Leon boasts sports seats with big side bolsters that give a comfortable driving position, and every model has two-way steering adjustment and a height-adjustable driver's seat. The Seat Leon FR models have an exclusive sporty interior trim and all models have plenty of headroom and elbow space as well as plentiful legroom in the back. The Seat Leon boot also offers generous space in the boot.

Prices start at £14,635 rising to £25,995 for the top of the range Seat Leon Cupra R.
