Nice Car! — Great car with nice engine and DSG gearbox? Performance, acceleration, braking, handling is perfect. Awesome design. Much fun factor. Good buildt quality, but sound absorbing is recommendable. Buy one and you will not regred. Maintenance not expensive. Gasoling depends on your right foot.

Pros: Engine, gearbox, seats

Cons: Nothing

The Mighty Leon Fr — The minute you sit behind the wheel in the SEAT Leon FR, you feel that you're on the track just coming out of the pit. It accelerates and corners like madness. So much fun to drive every day and it looks gorgeous.

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

Pros: Performance, Looks, Practicality

Cons: Xenon lights not standard

For The Price A Top Performer With Audi Technology — Superb engine that has torque from 1500 RPM's up to 4000 and then power to 6000+, never driven anything so dynamic, usale as daily car and fast in one. The design overtook the view from this car as it is blocked by A, B and C pillars. Relatively weak brakes...

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

Pros: Engine

My Sick Car — It's fast with a re-map not too bad on fuel. The acceleration is quick and the torque pins you in your seat. The car is fun to drive. And when you hear that turbo whistle. It's pure sick!! Also quick than a Golf GTI with the same engine spec.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Acceleration

Cons: Nothing at the moment

Sporty + Style + German — Acceleration is great, if you are lucky enough to have the Cubra or FR 2.0 engines, but mine is 1.6 still nice acceleration but like any other car on the road, Toyota Corolla etc... Handling: Superb handling, really, 17" alloy 22.5 cm wide tires, great power steering, gone to 180 Km/hr still stable. Brakes: very nice. Appearance: I think maybe it's one of the best looking cars I ever seen. Plus it's one of the VW group, a german car. and last and not least, all the options that you know and don't know, except the ESP it's optional and unfortunately it looks like I don't have it. disadvantages: firm drive ( hard suspension ) as it's designed to be sport car, manual no automatic gear.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: German car, look, options.

Cons: firm drive, manual great

A Bit Of Flair — Nice interior with heated leather seats, rain sensor, auto headlights, amazing diesel frugality and good performance. Brakes are some of the best I ever experienced. Great looking car from the outside and not a lot of them around. Real bargain compared to similar spec Golf 5. DSG gearbox a must in the diesel.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great fuel consumption, great handling and very quite inside.

Cons: Not so great high speed overtaking.
