Response to earlier comments posted: I just bought a Leon Cupra R and I smoked a few decent cars including a Subaru WRX and a S4 on my way home from picking it up.
Great torque, pulling power in every gear, I thought they had stopped making affordable cars like this. Most fun I've had in a long time.
Seat have got it right, all the important areas have been well designed and had money well spent. The interior switches and bits and bobs are not the best, but no worse than VW & Audi a few years back. STILL GOOD VALUE FOR MONEY!
A recommend this as a true drivers car!
What do you need four wheel drive for?
Switch off the ESP and drive the car like it meant to be, Electronics and safety features just spoil the real fun!
What did you spend all that money on driving lessons for? So the car could drive you around and keep you on the road?!?!
Cheap, powerful, cheap insurance, reasonable MPG, practical... better than any French or Italian junkers which are designed around pre-fabricated faults.
