SEAT's family-friendly saloon is an absolute bargain if purchased in it most basic form but the £12,500 asking price doesn't really get much in the way of pulling power. The new, range-topping 1.6 litre turbo diesel does a far better job but is it worth the extra pennies? AOL Cars finds out...

What is it?

SEAT's version of the Skoda Rapid is a rather plain-looking saloon that is, in fact, a hatchback. It's based on a slightly longer version of the Ibiza's platform and offers a surprising amount of room in the rear. The boot is absolutely cavernous but all that practicality still doesn't take away from the fact that it all looks rather dull when parked on your driveway.
