SEAT is the sporty Spanish arm of the VW Group and they’re doing a great job at the moment. They produce a wide range of cars and every one is a cracker; there isn’t a single one that gets a bad wowscore.
They make very good sporting versions of their standard cars, although it has to be said that the whole range drives with a spirited nature that’s very attractive. If you have a family then the big Alhambra MPV is a fine buy too, with something for everyone, from driver to passengers.
The quality is very good too, and resale values are solid. You can buy a SEAT with a sense of quiet satisfaction, knowing that you’ve beaten the system by choosing a curveball car.
