The Seat Leon shares most of its oily bits with the Volkswagen Golf on which it’s based, and it also competes with other mid-size family hatchbacks like the Ford Focus and Vauxhall Astra, to name but a few. It’s praise indeed, then, that even in a class that’s full of seriously impressive cars, the Leon is one of the more appealing options.
The Seat Leon ST 1.6 Ecomotive is a joy to drive and is responsive and economical to drive. The only draw back is if using a child seat in the rear middle seat then the car body is not really wide enough for two adults to sit either side in comfort.

Seat is sometimes guilty of making cars which ride harshly in a bid to make them feel more sporty. The new Leon avoids this trap. The ride is certainly firm, especially at low speeds, but S and SE models never feel too stiff and smooth out noticeably on faster roads.
