Featured SEAT Review: ‘A LEON YOU'D LIKE’

(75/110)

Car and Driving's Independent Used Review of the SEAT Leon (2012 - 2017) Range

This MK3 model Leon marked a fresh chapter in SEAT history. Redesigned from the ground up, it proved to be more confident, more dynamic and filled with bright ideas. Buyers got a wider range of bodystyles, a more efficient range of engines and hi-tech that not only lay under the skin but also sat within the cabin where owners could appreciate it every day. It was all beautifully functional. Whether there really is 'latin spirit in every one' is another question of course. In the case of sportier versions like the FR models, we'd be tempted to say yes. Live with one of these, then check out what the same money will buy you and you might well agree. True, there are cheaper Focus class family hatchbacks but of these, we can't off hand think of any we'd rather have on our driveway. And that could make all the difference. On a pure value-versus-quality basis, this MK3 Leon sits amongst the pick of the Volkswagen Group offerings in the Focus-class sector in its era. And that also makes it one of the key segment benchmarks outside the Wolfsburg family of brands. Which in turn, makes it a very good car indeed.
