Despite similar styling to the smaller Ibiza, the Leon is undoubtedly a more successful design. The sharp creases in the bodywork still give the car a modern look and whether you opt for three or five doors, or the estate body, all look fantastic.
Arch-filling wheels and tyres go a long way to lending the Leon 300 its aggressive looks and we’re a real fan of the ST estate in particular – it has a low, lean look to it that makes a Golf R estate look rather dull. We'd go for bright colours, though - while some may enjoy the subtlety of the Leon lineup, SEAT does offer some striking shades that really bring out the slashes and cuts in the bodywork.
