Seat Leon Ecomotive Test Drive and Review
More and more Manufacturers are joining the sub 100g/km CO2 emission group and Seat is the latest to join this seasons “in” colour group – “green.”. The Seat Ecomotive S is a sporty little number like most Ecomotives. Even though sporty, you can still save money on your tax bill and fuel economy.
Size wise, the car is much bigger than you would expect. It’s certainly suitable for hefty six-footers and there’s plenty of leg and headroom in the car and the boot is big enough for the weekly supermarket shop.
One possibly annoying feature of this car are the windscreen pillars are “chunky” and you may have to move backwards and forwards to see when negotiating a roundabout or corner. However, on a positive note, the windscreen wipers fit beautifully into the pillars.
Standard specification of the Ecomotive S includes:-
Alloy Wheels, Traction and Electronic Handling Controls, Air Conditioning, Electrically Operated Front Windows, Electric Door Mirrors, Stop/Start and Energy Capture, a Good Sound System with Six Speakers, Trip Computer and Gear Shift Indicator. SE models additions include Dual Zone Air-Con, Electric Rear Windows, Eight Speakers, Cruise Control, Folding Door Mirrors and Enhanced Interior Trim.
Reasons to purchase the Seat Ecomotive:-
Insurance Group: 15E
Top Speed: 118mph
0-62mph in 11.5 seconds
BIK Company Car Tax: 13%
The above figures are based on the Leon Ecomotive 1.6 TDI SE 5dr Hatchback
