Wonder if they are just comparing the specs or the car as a whole. If it's the car, I wonder where they got the car from now that JTA is down under. I also wonder which Fabia models will Czech Auto bring in.

They were just comparing the specs of the 3 cars, which I thick they copied off the brochures. They test drove the Seat Leon in this article, but not the Golf or Fabia. Dun think they can get a new fabia now, unless they borrow from the owners here tongue.gif

BTW, the article was from Shin Ming Daily News. Sorry for naming the wrong source.

Tks Veron, didnt know Sin Ming writes abt cars. Pretty soon, we might see a string of reviews on Skodas again now that Zech Auto is going to be in action soon.

The SEAT Leon looks like an excellent car. I guess if one like a VW Group car, you probably like the rest of the Group's range of cars... like if you like the Bora, chances is that you will like the Toledo ... blah blah

The Leon handles very well, even on stock suspension. gotta say that the 1.4 engine is rather peppy, 16 valves, not bad...

Feature wise cannot match the Toledo though.

Yeah i'd agree that the steering feel and handling are pretty good, but the 1.6 8v version is peppier wink.gif

Looks pretty cool cool.gif

But with the specs one level down from the tody, yet being so similarly priced, the 1.6 leon is definitely not worth the money crazy.gif

Sometimes I really wonder if BM really wants to sell the 1.6 leon at all! pirate.gif

Thats true, they want to cash in on the 'style' mad.gif

If it were really popular, it would have all been snapped up, no thanks to the ambitious pricing mad.gif

How's the Leon priced now? If it's priced like the Fabia before at 66-68k then it'll be competitive.

erm....it's definitely not priced like the Fabia. Seems like BM has secured all the COEs for the 1.4 Leon. So only have guaranteed price of $79900 crazy.gif

Oh and the price for 1.6 Leon is priced at 84900 pirate.gif
