Well built, good to drive
Dull styling, poor equipment levels
Bora is a good all-rounder and injects some much-needed style into the small family saloon sector. It’s based on the Golf, so shares some its best attributes, like a pleasant interior, direct steering and some punchy PD diesel engines for performance and economy. The only thorn in its side is Seat's Toledo, which offers the same, while undercutting it on used market.
