SEAT Leon Hatchback rivals

Written by Parkers on

Leon is the Volkswagen Golf with a brighter personality and lower pricing. It’s the model that announced SEAT had arrived. Against the previous-generation Golf, Leon looks leaner, sportier and more muscular. But it’s not just a VW in fancier clothes. It has a functional interior, a large boot space and an impressive range of engines.
