This car has been superseded by a newer model, click here to go to the latest SEAT Leon Hatchback review.

Parkers overall rating: 3.5 out of 5 3.5

Sturdy bodyshell, strong chassis and lots of equipment. ABS, passenger and side airbags standard across the range. Immobiliser across the range but alarm on top-spec models isn't Thatcham approved which will cause insurance headaches.

The boot is a good size, but it's slightly tricky to use, because of a high loading sill. Plenty of storage space throughout the cabin - cupholder restricts access to stereo.
