2009 SEAT Leon | new car review

The Leon is the SEAT product that verges more towards sportiness than the others, and arguably the prettiest too. Larger than the Ibiza and released in 2005, it seats five and shares its dynamic design language with the other SEAT models of its generation, namely the Altea and the Altea XL. The face is similar […]…

2009 SEAT Ibiza | new car review

The current generation of SEAT Ibiza ceased production in 2008, with a new model due in May of 2009. But the existing generation, which 
has been a huge success globally for 
SEAT and is still available in the region. It ranges from an entry-level hatchback to a powerful hot-hatch. Similar in looks to the Cordoba […]…

2009 Seat Cordoba | new car review

The Cordoba is the sedan version of SEAT’s Ibiza, a hatchback that has been hugely successful in Europe but less so here. Buyers in the GCC tend to prefer a sedan, which is why many considering a compact SEAT will look in the Cordoba’s direction. It’s aging a bit now, having been first launched in 2002, […]…

2009 SEAT Altea XL | new car review

The idea was simple – take the SEAT Altea, make it bigger. The result was the Altea XL. Designed for larger families, the XL looks very similar to its smaller namesake, although the rear lights have been redesigned. But the front and the overall bodystyle shares the swooping, dynamic lines of the Altea. It still […]…

2009 SEAT Altea | new car review

SEAT is a firm that eschews the dull, the boring and the mundane, and embraces the fun and sportiness of driving. Which could, on the face of it, present a problem when producing a practical family car in the mould of an MPV. The Spanish manufacturer’s solution is the Altea, an MPV-cum-hatchback that prides itself […]…

2008 Seat Toledo | new car review

Currently in its third generation, the Toledo is closer to a compact MPV with the Altea’s front section, a high roof and a rear end inspired in part by the Renault Vel Satis, paying homage to the original Toledo’s hatchback/sedan rear. All pretense of a sporty identity was thrown out, in favour of a more […]…

2008 Seat Ibiza | new car review

The Ibiza supermini is Seat’s take on parent company VW’s effervescent Polo model. The Ibiza spans four generations and is available in either three- or five-door hatchback variants. Its more aggressive styling has boosted this model ahead of the family-friendly styling of the Polo. It is also the largest Ibiza to date, with room for […]…

2008 Seat Cordoba | new car review

One of the oldest models in Seat’s line-up, the Cordoba has yet to get the style treatment meted out to its other siblings. The 2008 Seat Cordoba line-up includes the new 1.4 with an output of 85 bhp, replacing the 75bhp manual model. There is also a model with 100bhp output from the same 1.4-litre […]…

2008 Seat Altea

A smart looker, the Altea exudes unmistakable character and street presence with its dramatic, aggressive and sporting when viewed front-on, but from the side and rear, it presents a more typical MPV look. Only Seat insists this isn’t a MPV, preferring to call it an MSV, for multi-sports vehicle. This is a car that takes […]…

2008 Seat Leon | new car review

The Leon is based on the Volkswagen Golf V platform and competes among the compact sporty hatchbacks. Built in Spain as are the other Seats, the Leon features a sharper exterior look with vertical windscreen wipers and the external rear door handles more integrated, in a similar style to that seen on recent Alfa Romeo […]…
