Get your hands on the fastest diesel Seat Leon, in high spec FR trim for £5,355.24 over two years.

This deal is for low mileage users, at 5k per annum, however double that can be had for £199.19 per month. Handily you can use the sliders on the website to alter your mileage, contract term and initial payment.

It's a pretty amazing car this. I'ts based upon the outstanding Mk7 Golf, but has more purposeful looks, which is what lets the Golf down.

I personally think this is the model to have as it will do 0-60 in 7.5 seconds, reach 141mph max and still do a claimed 67.3mpg!

If you want the technology pack which includes satnav this can be yours for £186.39 per month instead.

67.3mpg, no chance, nice car though.

Will do 65mpg on a steady motorway run

if you buy a car like this, 67mpg is never going to be achieved.
there is no point in buying a car that goes like a horse with a chilli enema and driving like a horse called evostick.

If only this was the petrol version

5k!!!!!!

Is the engine/drivetrain pretty much the same as the Golf 185?

5k allowance means it would stay parked on my drive after 4 months

Did you click the link? You can adjust the mileage to suit.

Not bad if you don't do much driving, works out t about 260 a month for me

If you do more miles, look at what the pence per mile charge is for going over, most times the penalty charge works out less than what the extra payment would be

Oh and I've got a 170 diesel scirocco and get more miles per gallon than the figures quoted by VW

5k Miles is useless

For clarity: My current car has done 8k miles from new in 21 months.

Not everyone has a long commute.

Why?

yet another lease deal at 5k miles a year.
obviously a distorted price to get the phones ringing but unrealistic to 80% of the country at a guess.
The car is fantastic though. only the quality if the interior lets it down compared to the Golf and Audi A3.

buy a year old one works out cheaper

good car for the money , only if seat spent a little bit more on parts of the interior it would be perfect 90% there

Doing less than 10k a year in a modern diesel is asking for trouble, most likely just before you're due to hand it back.

Exactly right, people driving a diesel doing 5k miles a year is ridiculous

"Get your hands on the fastest diesel Seat Leon...."

Bit like saying get your hands on the fat spotty girl from your office. Thank you for the offer...

Why?


The petrol version is 276 BHP with a 2 litre, 4 cylinder turbo engine that does 0-60 in 5.8 seconds and achieves a top speed of 155mph. I'm guessing that's why

It terms of interior quality I believe it goes like this >

1. Audi
2. VW
3. Skoda/Seat (Seat being the better looking sporty version of a Skoda)

I might be wrong though, that's how I see it. Last two cars I've had are VW Golfs, I wouldn't pay £5K premium over a VW for an Audi because it's just a VW with a different body shell and nicer interior. Not worth the extra.

I quite like the look of this deal but the last two Golfs I've had MK5 and MK6 had such quiet engines I really couldn't stand a diesel again, plus I only do about 6,000 a year in the Golf and 2,000 a year in my other car.

Diesels feel like a dirty choice of engine now, not just literally but socially as well, plus diesels have DMF, DPF problems, not worth running one unless you do the miles. Various articles I've read seem to suggest around 15,000 annual miles is when it starts to make sense to get a diesel. I've owned diesels before, mostly Citroen's and Rovers and they were great, the engine would still be running whilst the rest of the car fell apart around it.

Yes, but it's 184PS in both cars. Under the skin it's a GTD with less standard equipment, a lower rent interior (really do think that SEAT are the poor relation in the VAG group for interiors) and a different exterior (some might say better, but i've always found SEATs don't age well).

MPG-wise, You will have to drive like a saint on a long motorway run to get 67mpg. My GTD does 45mpg around the doors with a heavy right foot in the winter, 50 doing the same in the summer, and Summer motorway driving, maintaining 80mpg yielded 56mpg on a 105 mile trip to Leeds from Newcastle recently (with the aircon on).

The quoted 20% gains over the previous gen are all down to the inclusion of stop-start and their effects on the 11 minute test cycle with 24% of it at a standstill. In reality, not many people spend 5% of their journey static. let alone 24%, where stop-start can save you. Expect to average 50mpg if you don't drive like a nun.

Cracking deal, £2k less than leasing a GTD over the term. The TDI 184PS engine responds well to a decent tuning box - I have a DTUK one on mine: 243PS/505Nm, and no significant mpg penalty for having it.

yup, 0-60 of 7.5s for a 2.0 turbo diesel would have been impressive 15 years ago, a 20 year old fiat coupe 2.0 turbo petrol will do it 2s quicker even. Granted you get more mpg, but on a £5k lease the difference would be few hundred quid, plus you won't have to put up with the sound of DAKADAKADAKA every morning. Electric cars are the future like the bmw i3.

It's not about the total miles you do it's about the miles per journey with a diesel. Although clearly most people who do alot of miles will have to do it often.

I'd say the Skoda has a slightly nicer interior than SEAT. You get a bit more car for your money with a Skoda than a Seat. Audi S interior is a tactile and visual thing of beauty.

Seats have the worst residuals in the VAG group, making them good to lease or to buy nearly new, not so much for buying new (too much lost).

Thanks so it's

1. Audi S Line
2. Audi
3. VW
4. Skoda
5. Seat

Hope that's accurate now

OK one thing is bothering me, are the RS interiors better than S Line? Never been in an RS. I think they are judging by pics ok so now I'm thinking.

1. Audi RS
2. Audi S Line
3. Audi bog standard
4. VW
5. Skoda
6. Seat

OK any takers on changing that?

btw this deal is making me want another car. I was happy with two but now I want another, this is what being single is about I guess, buying cars you know you can't have when you're not single. Fiat Coupe next I reckon although they're all bangers now.

The achilles heel of this car (and the GTD) is initial grip. The 4WD Audi version with the same engine is 0-62 in 6.7s. Even adding a tuning box to mine does nowt for my bottom end. If I give it more than 2/3 throttle in 1st and 2nd in the dry (without the box/stock) the car will just sit there and tramp. Above 30mph is where it's at - this car is all about overtaking clout.

Not to thread spoil, it probably adds nothing to the argument, but I just do not understand leasing. By the end of it your nearly 6k down with nothing to show for it. I get that its considered a good deal on paper since the car would depreciate faster than that if you went and bought it and sold it after 2 years but who are these people that are selling nearly new cars. Maybe I'm just too poor to wrap my head around it, but I cannot fathom throwing 5.5k at the privilege of driving a seat around for 2 years and end with nothing to show for it. I'd take that 5.5K and throw it at a nice red Mazda3 MPS or Corolla Compressor and still be chuffed 2 years from now.

I don't know. It just seems like money down the drain.

As interiors go, you've got it. Audi always get the best switches too. Audis and Seats get all the aesthetic "sporty" equipment, VWs and Skodas get rammed with useful stuff like dual zone climate, Xenons (higher spec), better standard audio/nav etc.

My GTD was so well stocked as standard, I didn't feel the need to get any options.

Also consider the extra wear and tear on the car too. The pence per mile charge will cover the miles on the odometer. But a 5k a year car will have acceptable chips, scuffs than you will get on a 10k a year car - eg 2 small stone chips per panel, good luck staying within that on a 10-15k a year vehicle.

You're nuts if you think Skoda is positioned above Seat. Look at the interior pictures and the pricing for each and it's quite obvious how the VW Audi Group are marketing their vehicle brands.

Unless you're going for an RS/S/GTI/R/GTD then the residuals for all the 'normal' VW Audi Group cars are fairly bad as they're so common (I say that as someone who bought a nearly new Seat Leon).

Some people like driving new cars, or be an early adopter of a new model. For those that like to be in a new car, you can sometimes lease for less than the depreciation. You do pay for the privilege, but for that you get the assurance of warranty and no unexpected bills for mechanical repairs etc. Anyone who's driven in a money-pit banger and ended up having their 8 year old Mondeo cost them over 2 grand a year etc will appreciate the reassurance of fixed price motoring.

A short lease is about getting a new car for a lot less, most people or rather many people finance a car anyway, if you want to change car every 2 years then this way of doing things can work out cheaper and you get the latest bit of kit every two years. For me I spend the cash on a frivolous motor that costs me a lot to run, like the FTO I've had for a year. My main car is a boring but steady MK6 1.4 Golf. I nearly got a Nissan 370Z the other day though as I was being a bit impulsive bi-polar, then I came to my senses.

I guess I must be nuts, but my mate's Skoda VRS with the 184PS TDI engine has a nicer interior than the Seat FR. Skoda get a lot more of the soft touch plastics than the Seats do. I wish VAG would put a bit more colour in their interiors though - you have to like black!

I get you on the depreciation - GTD GFV is 56% of RRP, the next model down (Golf 150TDI GT) is 47%. The GT is £2500 less than the GTD (RRP), but the GTD will be worth £2500 more after 3 years old, essentially making them the same price in terms of depreciation.

pretty naff an s3 is 67% after 3 years - in fact after 6 months they were more expensive than new
