The SEAT Leon has been triumphant in the highly respected accolade of 'Used Car of the Year', in the age range of 1-3 years old by What Car? Used Car Awards. Judges of the award believe that the stylish hatchback stood out amongst competitors due to the combination of the third-generation model's good driving dynamics, quality, safety and attractiveness and was a clear overall winner for the category. It was a combination of these qualities as well as the Leon's great value for money that gave it a defining advantage over the competition for the title.
Alex Robbins, Used Cars Editor at What Car?, commented on SEAT's success:
"With prices undercutting those of similarly desirable rivals, it's a veritable bargain right now. This is despite the fact that so many used Leons come particularly well-equipped, with new-car buyers having specified the desirable Technology Pack. Throw in a strong reliability score in our latest Reliability Survey, and you have a used car which is hard to resist,"
The SEAT Leon Mk3 has also been named the Best Used Family Car in addition to the overall best used car of the year but What Car? in the used car awards- another great triumph for the renowned automotive brand- and another trophy for them to put in their cabinet, too. Richard Harrison, SEAT UK Director, is very pleased with the accolades the brand has been awarded with, he said:
"The third-generation Leon transformed the SEAT brand pretty much overnight. It represents the best of what we aim to deliver in terms of design, engineering, technology and driver-appeal. This What Car? award is a tremendous honour for us, as it shows we are giving both new and used car customers a car they can trust, with lasting quality and excellent value."
