SEAT Leon takes two top awards in Driver Power survey
The SEAT Leon has won two top awards in this year's Auto Express Driver Power survey.
SEAT's high-selling Leon is certainly no stranger to award wins, particularly those bearing an Auto Express magazine engraving. The latest they've added to the collection is the 'Best Compact Family Car' and 'Best In-Car Tech' in this year's Driver Power customer satisfaction survey.
Sending the Leon family awards tally into double figures for the last 12 months alone, the five-door hatch posted a mighty 92.89 per cent through an unbeatable combination of equipment levels, quality and style, to hold off a series of challengers in the hard fought 'Compact Family Car' category, including the Peugeot 308 and Volvo V40.
Fittingly, given SEAT's 'Technology to Enjoy' strapline, it came out on top for In-Car Tech too, no doubt in part due to the Technology Pack, which includes full LED headlight pack, navigation system and DAB radio.
Steve Fowler, Editor-in-chief of Auto Express, said: "The SEAT Leon is a serial Auto Express Award winner and it seems owners feel the same way. Not only has it beaten some strong competition to top the compact family class, thanks to a fine blend of good performance mixed with affordable running costs, the tech on offer has also been well above owners' expectations."
Commenting on its latest awards haul, SEAT UK's Director, Richard Harrison, said: "We've won 'Best Compact Family Car' from Auto Express two years in a row, so we were hoping Leon would be in with a good chance. It's always a pleasure to win awards, but they're just that little bit sweeter when it's real owners who vote your cars to be the best. Clearly, our top-seller has the substance to back up its style and I'm delighted that those who live with the Leon every day love it as much as they do."
