2001 Seat Leon 20v Cupra 1.8 turbo from UK and Ireland
The best performance car this side of 20K ukp
Broken foglamp, which the dealer refused to fix at first.
Inoperative cigarette lighter (exactly the same problem I had with my VW Passat (both VW group products).
Driver's door mirror does not fold in as far as the passenger mirror (dealer assures me that this is normal???)
This car is outrageously quick, and appears to be nothing more than an Audi TT with a different jacket on.
Room in the back is poor.
Understeers in the wet (could do with 4wd).
Wheels are very hard to keep clean.
Braking, steering and equipment levels are all superb.
An absolute bargain of a performance car, without attracting attention.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
