SEAT's third generation Leon has sharpened up its act in recent years. Jonathan Crouch drives it.
Ten Second Review
This much improved third generation SEAT Leon is a Focus-sized model that these days offers smarter styling, impressive media connectivity, strong safety provision and some efficient engine options. If you'd been overlooking it, this Spanish contender might now be worth a second glance.
SEAT, in case you didn't know, is supposed to be an emotive, 'Latin' kind of brand, a kind of 'Iberian Alfa Romeo'. Hence the passionate marketing, the rallying success and the World Touring Car Championship trophies. Customers though, remain a little unconvinced, especially in mainland Europe where SEAT sales are faltering. But not so in the UK. Sales are soaring on these shores and the Leon model range has always represented much of the reason why, ever since the MK1 version's original introduction in 1998 and its swoopy second generation successor's arrival in 2005. Together with the Ibiza supermini, the Leon is SEAT to British buyers.
The third generation version, launched in 2012, built upon the solid foundation established by its predecessors but in the years since its introduction, the competition in the Focus class gamily hatchback sector has become much tougher. Hence the need for this improved MK3 Leon with its slicker looks, stronger safety and improved media connectivity.
