The new SEAT Leon has been named Family Car of the Year at the 2021 What Car? Awards, as well as taking third place in the Safety Award category.
The awards ceremony took place virtually last week and judges picked the best cars on the market for each category.
The Leon was praised for offering great practical features to make family life easier, as well as being commended for its affordability and low running costs.
Jim Holder, What Car? editor, said: “As a family car, the Leon gets the basics right by offering a big boot and loads of space for passengers. But it also serves up a very welcome slice of fun, feels classy inside and costs less to buy and run than you’d think. It's a fantastic all-rounder.”
The Leon was also recognised in the Safety Award too, taking third place respectably, following its five-star Euro NCAP safety rating last year.
Richard Harrison, Managing Director of SEAT UK, said: “The New Leon has moved the bar higher again in the segment. This recognition, in what is a fiercely contested category, is testament to SEAT’s determination to offer high-quality, beautifully designed, practical and fun cars to drive, at an affordable price point. It was also great to see the Leon gain recognition for its level of safety; as a relatively affordable proposition, it has the potential to make a significant impact on the overall safety of the UK’s car parc.”
