SEAT takes two victories in Auto Express used car awards

The SEAT Leon and Alhambra have been named as two of the best used car buys in the latest issue of Auto Express (issued 21 September to 11 October 2016).

The Leon 1.2 TSI has been crowned the ‘best used compact family hatchback’ in the Auto Express used car awards. The magazine praised the car for its sporty design, spacious and classy cabin, and high level of standard equipment. Auto Express was quoted as saying, "The cabin isn't just roomy, either; it feels classy and uncluttered and it's packed with high-quality, soft-touch materials. It's also incredibly well specked. Even the basic Leon S comes with a five-inch colour touchscreen to access the SEAT Media System, plus Bluetooth, voice control and steering wheels controls"

In the MPV class, the SEAT Alhambra 2.0 TDI took the title, commended for its value, space, quality and driver appeal. "You certainly get a lot for your money with the Alhambra. Its upright and boxy body isn't the last word in style, but it houses an interior that's vast, neatly designed and packed with upmarket appeal."

SEAT triumphed again in a new car group test in the same issue. The Leon 1.6 TDI SE Dynamic Technology was awarded four stars and put in first place, ahead of the Kia Cee’d and Alfa Romeo Giulietta. It was praised for its handling, practicality and low running costs.
