The Seat Leon, with Spanish design, style and flair – really does give you the best of both worlds. It’s fab to drive, cheap to run and has plenty of kit plus it scores highly for safety and reliability. You may wonder, does it really get any better than this?
If you’re after a classy hatchback that doesn’t compromise on safety or value whilst driving like a dream then this could be your next car. Best of all you can bag yourself a new SEAT Leon with a low deposit and free insurance, discounted insurance or cashback.
There’s a range of engines to choose from with the Leon and all are turbocharged either with a TSI Petrol or TSI diesel which means you’ll notice a definite punchiness when you drive it. Even the most basic entry model feels light and quick to drive, being nimble enough to handle the traffic in town with complete ease but weighty enough to happily go the distance out on the open road and motorway too.
The new Leon is lighter and slimmer giving it a sleek look that is lean and clean. The interior looks classy with high quality material and has a well-designed layout.
There’s plenty of room throughout, with stacks of head space and legroom so your mates can stretch out!
The boot has a tidy 380 litre boot which is the same as a VW Golf making it easy to cram in all your camping gear at festival season.
The Leon scores highly for both safety and reliability. Euro NCAP awarded the car a maximum five stars for safety at its crash test safety rating and it scored an impressive 94% for adult occupant protection and 92% for child occupant protection. There’s some brilliant optional safety systems available which won’t break the bank - these include a driver tiredness recognition system, lane assistance, automatic headlight and auto wiper options.
Every Leon has a 5.0 inch colour touchscreen SEAT Media System which has Bluetooth, USB and voice control as standard. The optional extras on the mid-range models are worth the expense and include full LED headlights, DAB radio and an upgrade to the Media System Plus.
What is a guarantor?
A guarantor is someone who formally guarantees to pay the finance if the young driver is unable to make the repayments. Before agreeing to become a guarantor for young driver, it is important you check that you would be able to afford the repayments (if they fail to pay the finance instalments), as non-payment pay could affect both yours, and their, credit score and result in repossession of the car.
How does the insurance work?
We offer you a personalised quote based on your age and postcode and the majority of our customers really do get free insurance. We know it's a big outlay buying and insuring your first car. We developed this offer to help ease the pain during what's probably going to be your most expensive year of car insurance – whilst you build up that first year's all important no claims bonus. Our insurance is underwritten by Highway Insurance (part of the Liverpool Victoria Group)
How long until I get my new car?
Good question. It depends on the car you're after and how far you want to go customising it! If you want your car delivered ASAP give us a call on 0333 358 3441 to find out what's available now. If you've got your heart set on a certain colour or upgrade the car may have to be made to order. Whatever your circumstances, our friendly team can talk you through timescales for the different options – and we'll keep you posted on progress until it's delivered.
What is the benefit of adding a guarantor to my finance application?
If you're aged under 21, you're unlikely to have built up much credit history, so approval will be based on your personal circumstances. Having a guarantor increases your chance of being approved - thus allowing you to start building up your credit score.
What happens after the first year?
We'll send you a renewal price, but you don't have to take it and if you can find a more suitable policy somewhere else you can move your insurance (we'll miss you though!)
