Five Stars from WhatCar?
"It's a great return to form for the Leon badge, and yet another serious contender in the small family hatchback market."
"“Good” hardly does it justice.The striking new Seat Leon is a massive improvement on the model it replaces. Better in every conceivable area, it retains the focus on performance and determined handling traits which made the old model a favourite among enthusiast drivers."

"We drove the 1.6-litre TDI, which is expected to be the biggest seller in the UK. The new Leon is 90kg lighter than its predecessor, and it certainly feels like quite a lithe and agile car, particularly through its steering wheel which is light and precise."
