Excellent Fun For Little Money. Expensive To Insure. — This is the most fun on 4 wheels for the money. Very quick but yet economical at the same time. Expensive to insure - and I know why, as mine got nicked and was used a a getaway vehicle for some other robberies. Very reliable - Audi/VW engineering, and also very comfortable.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Loved it to bits - wanted to tear the limbs off the thieves.

Cons: Boot small for size of car.

Low Selling Price — Perfect for getting around sharp corners. Power of engine hits on every level. Comfort while traveling at speeds. Style of the car give it that little push to be a MANS CAR!!! Great Price but to much for me hahahaha. Not good for a family car, hardly any room in back for kids.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Power, Speed

Cons: Price

Cheap Rocket With A Gear For Every Occasion And Loads Of Torque At Low Revs — 0-60 in 6.9s, Vmax 150mph, 222bhp 1.8T, 6 on the floor, 4 pot Brembo front calipers, but woefully short on luxury extras, cheap cloth covered bucket seats and easily marked plastics, no sat nav/parking sensors/or cruise control. Cheap to run hot hatch. Like a kodak camera, Just point and shoot.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: An absolute blast on a twisty A or B road

Cons: Creaky interior, low front spoiler that catches on ramps/driveways

Seat - Leon — Its an amazing car, its powerful, its nice, and it looks so good, it is not an expensive car but it consumes a lot of fuel, the maintenances its about every VW car, the acceleration is the best about the rally line.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: the line, the design, and the power

Cons: nothing

Leon Cupra R 225 — Very very happy with this car. Performance is amazing and build quality is awesome. It's my third Seat and I really can't fault it. The prices are great right now - go and buy one. They're quite rare but easy to get parts for since its basically a Golf underneath.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Performance

Cons: Residual value

Seat Leon 1.9 Tdi — I had a Seat Leon FR 1.9 tdi in metal black. Great low pull and magic top end. it was well put together and wore well. Good instruments and a great stereo system. The boot was a little tight because of the rear shape but that was the only fault I can think of.

Pros: Everything (almost)

Cons: Boot shape

My Car — Good performance even if some lack of horse power (only 110). Good behaviour: we enjoy to drive it by going faster and faster... Issue: the more you drive, the less the other drivers like you... Positive: behaviour, feeling about speed, including options, engine. Negative: comfort. Bad to keep your licence safe...

Pros: behaviour, feeling about speed, including options, engine

Cons: comfort

Decent Looks And Reasonable Build Quality, Handles Well, But Has A Pathetic Boot And Noisey Engine. By Simon

The MK2 Seat Leon was launched in 2005. I have the 2006 model with a few options. Good fun car to throw about, but the 1.9 TDi lets it down. Opt for the 2.0 TDi with the 6-speed box. Much more refine... Read More
