SEAT Leon scores double whammy in Auto Express Driver Power 2015 survey

SEAT's high-selling Leon is certainly no stranger to award wins, particularly those bearing an Auto Express magazine engraving. Now, the sporty Spanish marque's best-seller is celebrating two of its finest to date, having collected 'Best Compact Family Car' and 'Best In-Car Tech' in this year's Driver Power customer satisfaction survey.

alone, the five-door hatch posted a mighty 92.89% through an unbeatable combination of equipment levels, quality and style, to hold off a series of challengers in the hard fought ‘Compact Family Car' category, including the Peugeot 308 and Volvo V40. Fittingly, given SEAT's ‘Technology to Enjoy' strapline, it came out on top for In-Car Tech too, no doubt in part due to the Technology Pack (including full LED headlight pack, navigation system and DAB radio), which many owners have enjoyed free of charge in recent times.Steve Fowler, Editor-in-chief of Auto Express said: "The SEAT Leon is a serial Auto Express Award winner and it seems owners feel the same way. Not only has it beaten some strong competition to top the compact family class, thanks to a fine blend of good performance mixed with affordable running costs, the tech on offer has also been well above owners' expectations."

Commenting on its latest awards haul, SEAT UK's Director, Richard Harrison, said, "We've won ‘Best Compact Family Car' from Auto Express two years in a row, so we were hoping Leon would be in with a good chance. It's always a pleasure to win awards, but they're just that little bit sweeter when it's real owners who vote your cars to be the best. Clearly, our top-seller has the substance to back up its style and I'm delighted that those who live with the Leon every day love it as much as they do."
