Autobest, which has determined the most logical car to be bought in Europe by considering the price-performance ratio every year since 2001, placed the new Seat Leon at the top this year. Octavia is in second place.
Unveiled earlier this year, the new Seat Leon was awarded the “Best Buy Car of Europe 2021” award by the Autobest jury consisting of 30 experienced journalists.
With the preliminary voting held among nearly 30 new models to reach the top in Autobest 2021, Citroen C4, Dacia Sandero, Honda Jazz, Peugeot 2008, Seat Leon, Skoda Octavia and Toyota Yaris were among the models that made their name in the finals. Seat, which got its name on the top as a result of the evaluations made in the final stage, won the same award with Ateca in 2017.
When we look at the scoring made, we see that the new Seat Leon reached the top with a total of 12,685 points. Another name in the final, Skoda Octavia, is in second place with only 532 points. When we look at the percentage, the difference between the two models is only 0.69. Third place is Peugeot 2008, with a total of 11,636 points.
The AUTOBEST Award, which has been held every year since 2001, is among the most prestigious awards in Europe. The 31 journalists on the jury that gave the award subjected the SEAT Leon to an extensive series of test runs, including the hybrid version, at the final in Austria in early November.
