The Seat Leon Sport Coupe is a cracking three-door hatchback. The Leon SC is also well-made with lots of practicality.
There's an impressive range of engines to choose from, starting with a 1.2 litre TSI petrol unit producing 104 bhp and there are 1.4 litre and 1.8 litre TSI units as well. Diesel engines include a 1.6 litre TDI unit and two 2.0 litre TDIs with power outputs of 148 bhp and 181 bhp. The petrol engines deliver the best levels of performance, particularly around town, with the 1.2 litre unit returning around 58 mpg. Of the diesels, the 1.6 litre TDI will return around 75 mpg while the 2.0 litre units offer more refinement and stronger performance.
The introduction of three doors to the range brought the Seat Leon SC to a new army of fans with the already impressive the five-door model. It's not only an attractive looking car but it's also a very good all-rounder and it does everything expected of it which makes it an impressive offering for the money.
It's very similar to its five-door sibling, particularly in the cabin, but drivers still get to enjoy the exceptional build quality and there's enough room on board for adults plus their luggage; the boot is 380 litres in size. Indeed, since it's also based on the same platform as the Audi A3 and VW Golf, the handling is excellent. The Leon SC also performs well when cornering at speed with accurate, light steering. There's plenty of equipment fitted as standard including a 5-inch touchscreen infotainment system and air conditioning. There's also a lot of safety equipment including emergency braking assist and tyre pressure monitoring.
For many people, the Seat Leon Sport Coupe is the best car made by Seat and it delivers impressive handling and practicality for a three-door coupe.
