I bought a Seat Leon S 1.6 standard model three years ago from new from the dealer. The Seat so far has provided reliable however we do only drive it 8000 miles a year so are well below average mileage of about 10000. It is economical both to run and to insure. However we have found the 1.6 very sluggish. I would say that it is underpowered and would recommend going for a higher powered engine for this model of car. The car does struggle when trying to overtake on a motorway and even without a load in the back struggles on any hill. I also have a standard car seat and I found that the seat belts in the back of the car were not long enough to fit the car seat so the baby always has to travel in the back. Also now that we have a baby we have had to buy a roof box as the boot space isn't enough for a family with a small baby. I would recommend buying a larger car if you have a young family or a roof box. The car also has a spoiler which means that to fit a cycle rack you need to have roof bars fitted by Seat which can prove expensive.
