SEAT Leon wins two awards from Auto Express!

Third year of glory for Leon with two more Auto Express Awards
‘Best Compact Family Car’ and ‘Best Hot Hatch’
The SEAT Leon has made it three years of Auto Express New
Car Awards honours, after being awarded with 2015’s ‘Best Compact
Family Car’
 and, for its flagship CUPRA incarnation, ‘Best Hot Hatch’. Both titles have
been retained for a second year, continuing a winning streak for the Leon that began with it being named Car of the Year in 2013.
Steve Fowler, Auto Express Editor-in-Chief, said: “This hat-trick of wins
against such talented opposition is testament to the all-round qualities of the
Leon. It’s a clear winner as far as family car buyers are concerned, offering
great value, bags of space, generous kit and superb quality. It knocks spots
off of its rivals when it comes to looks, too – it’s a seriously stylish car.” 
He had equally warm praise for the Leon CUPRA’s winning qualities, too:
“A hot hatch has to be many things, but fun is top of the agenda and the Leon
CUPRA delivers that by the bucketload.
It’s brilliant on road and surprisingly capable on track, yet when it
comes to its sensible side it offers family-friendly space, reasonable running
costs and the sort of tech and quality you’d expect from a supercar rather than
a hot hatch.”
 Jürgen Stackman, SEAT SA President and CEO, accepted one of the awards
at the presentation ceremony in London last night. He was joined by
Richard Harrison, SEAT UK Director, who said: “We’re delighted that in such a
fiercely competitive market, Leon remains the benchmark for others to aspire
to, witnessed now by three years of success in the Auto Express New
Car Awards. We’ve started rolling out the successful Leon formula across other
models in the range, including the upcoming New Ibiza, so I’m confident there’s
a great chance we’ll be back on the podium next year.”
Success in the Auto Express New Car Awards follows
directly on from this year’s Auto Express Driver Power survey,
in which Auto Express readers and website visitors also voted
Leon 'best compact family car' and the model with the 'best in-car tech'
