The Top Gear car review:Seat Leon ST
For:Fantastic build quality, excellent refinement, very practical
Against:Slightly utilitarian but not a lot else
What is it?
The estate version of the Seat Leon is essentially the same as a Golf Estate, only it looks a bit different. It’s also worse inside, but costs a lot less. Underneath, and under the bonnet, it’s more or less identical, and sits on the same MQB architecture you’d find under a load of stuff from the Volkswagen Group (A3, Octavia, Golf) and so on. There’s even a load-lugging version of the Seat Leon Cupra hot hatch, and a crossover in the shape of the Seat Leon X-Perience.
