Auto Express Awards: SEAT Leon is Car of the Year

Auto Express Awards: SEAT Leon is Car of the Year

The Auto Express Magazine Awards judging panel has picked the new SEAT Leon as their overall Car of the Year, at this week's award ceremony; beating a packed field of very tough competition. The Leon was also judged to be the Best Compact Family Car.

Auto Express Editor-in-Chief Steve Fowler said of the Leon: “We love its style, the way it drives, the quality and the kit. Best of all, you get all that at a bargain price, while running costs will be ultra-low, too.”

The new SEAT Leon is priced from £15,670 and remains as the first and only family hatchback in the world to offer very cool-looking full-LED headlights, and the Auto Express judges were particularly impressed by the level of standard kit and build quality customers would enjoy for this very achievable starting price.

The racy-looking Leon SC – Sport Coupe – will be in the dealerships soon too, bringing with it that SEAT value, but with the added attraction of sporty, 2-door coupe lines.
