The engine acoustics deliver a really crisp, tingly induction note and it’s downright fast too, spearing eagerly through the lower reaches of the rev-range (the turbo blows at a hefty 1.2bar from 2500rpm) and sustaining this force effortlessly at the top end.

Although it likes to pretend otherwise, SEAT is limited in what it can achieve by the simple fact that it has to use existing VW group parts – in this case the 261bhp turbocharged 2-litre from the Audi S3 and forthcoming Scirocco R. But it’s better here.

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight


It’s hard to get excited about unchanged bodywork (a missed opportunity), a 6mm shorter gearchange throw (can’t say I noticed) or a 3mm suspension drop.

As far as you are able to push them, the front wheels cope well, gamely resisting understeer on the exit of corners.
