No stranger to the awards scene, SEAT’s Leon ST is celebrating its first - and second - towing titles, awarded at the Royal Automobile Club. Fending off eleven challengers, the SEAT Leon ST took the crown in the £20k- £25k category.

The judges concluding, “the load-lugging Leon ST 2.0 TDI 184PS kept its torquey feel and produced punch whenever and wherever it was required.” Such was the Leon ST’s performance; the car was also crowned Caravan Club Towcar of the Year 2015.


Scottish Estate Car of the Year 2014: Leon ST

Judges hail everything from Leon ST's price, running costs and style to its driving experience and load-swallowing ability.

The President of the Scottish Awards mentioned: “The compact estate market has never been healthier and this was one of our hardest-to-pick categories. However, the winner’s blend of pace, space, excellent value for money and sharp styling made it an immediate front runner. Throw in a wide range of engines and fantastic economy and it became impossible for our judging panel to overlook.”
