The Mini is an excellent hatch, but does it have to be so grown up?
Seat’s strongest car in a long time, the Leon is now a Golf-baiting player.
Not as cheap as you’d expect, but still one of the best hot hatches on sale.
Kia improves things yet again. Refinement, styling and interior quality are nearly as good as anything out there. Nearly…
Only the interior isn't as good as the Golf. Beyond that, there's not a lot to split the Leon ST.
