It's a smart looking car with some nice details, but cool! I'm not so sure!

Strangely timbersome interpretation of the Seat look which was established by Steve Lewis Paris motor show: Audi Crosslane Coupe | Autocar who has long since moved up in the VW design ranks.
This will create economies of scale for the Golf and A3 bits underneath. The previous one was always on a deal rather than selling on the product and this will probably be no different (IMHO)

It just looks like every other euro box that we see on the road these days. For a car to be cool it needs to really stand out from the competition, and to me this new Leon looks like a cross between a mk6 golf and a Mazda 3.

i'm not sure it's cool, nor especially interesting to look at. It's quite handsome, but that's largely because it's on nice looking rims. Nice to see the dash was designed in the 1970s

What on earth have they done to it. It also really looks like a KIA ceed

But the car in general is

Seriously uncool

The cool wall is being brought into disrepute. Here we have a cooking hatch from a country where the national dish is leftovers and it has some votes to say it's cool.

The outside is instantly forgetable and the inside is vaguely reminiscent of a late 80s Proton.

Surely we can do better than this?

I quite like it. I think a good few years back they were a bit different and excellent value compared to their VAG stablemates.
I don't think it's quite cool though so have had to go for uncool. Do like them though.

Leftovers

It's an OK looking trolley but just another warmed over remnants of a previous Golf or Polo.

Boring in every respect despite the adverts declaring they've put the fun back into motoring. Tracybloodyisland!

Uncool.

Is it just me or does this not look quite a lot like a Giulietta ? Especialy in profile in the second pic down on the left of the white one ?

It could be you. The Seat is more spiky , like the previous Astra , and lacks wedge. The glass to body ratio is different in my opinion for this reason, the cabin looking longer. The **** gaps and radii of the pressings is impressive but you can't help thinking they wouldn't be allowed to make it too attractive!

You're right about the glass areas definitely - it's a strange one because whilst not cool at at all it's almost quite a handsome car for its genre.
