Good to drive, roomy inside and fairly affordable to own
This range-topping trim is based on the regular Xcellence but adds microfibre suede seats, 18in alloy wheels and Seat's self-parking system. However, you’ll be spending the sort of cash that would get you a bigger or possibly premium brand SUV.
Engine:1.0 TSI 115
The more powerful 114bhp 1.0 engine (badged 1.0 TSI 115) pulls more eagerly from low revs and feels suitably more energetic in every situation. It’s just a pity that this engine is available only in SE Technology and above, unless you go for an automatic (DSG) gearbox – something the majority of buyers in this class won’t want.
