SEAT has been producing vehicles based on Volkswagen platforms for a number of years, allowing this Spanish brand to steadily build a reputation for good reliability and high build quality. Not only can most models in its comprehensive range compete well against the German giant, but SEATs can sometimes represent greater value for money, too.
Rather than offer families looking for increased practicality a selection of SUVs or crossovers, SEAT has chosen to persevere with the estate car platform. The three hatchbacks in its range that can be specified as estates, the Ibiza, the Leon and the Leon Cupra, all make interesting and left-field choices as a result.
The Leon X-Perience caters for those looking for a little off-road ability in their estate, while the spacious seven-seater Alhambra represents good value for money if five seats and a big boot simply isn’t enough room for you.
