The new SEAT Leon is a car for all eventualities – and we’re searching for tips to ensure you’re just as prepared
6 March 2017

Technology is playing an ever-more important role in our lives, and that’s increasingly reflected in the driver assistance, safety and connectivity options on new cars.

The new SEAT Leon, for example, comes loaded with the latest technology. It’s available with an eight-inch Media System Plus touchscreen and SEAT Full Link technology, which incorporates MirrorLink, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Other features include a wireless smartphone charger and keyless entry, along with a raft of intelligent driver assistance systems.

All that technology is hugely helpful to drivers – but, as part of a promotion, SEAT and Autocar want your help to make motoring even easier. How? We want to know your top car ‘tech hacks’ – the little shortcuts, tips and ideas you use that make life just a little bit easier. And you could win a £100 Amazon voucher for suggesting one.

What are we looking for? An example: always forgetting where you’ve parked your car? No problem. Just fire up your favoured map app on your smartphone when you park, and drop a pin in your current location. Then you can always be guided back to your car.

We want you to share your favourite car tech tips. We’ll try your best suggestions out in a number of videos, using the stylish new SEAT Leon for the demonstration.

The person who submits our favourite car hack will win a £100 Amazon voucher. Submit your hacks and tips by emailing or via a social media comment on our Autocar Facebook post.

Our Verdict

Seat Leon 5dr hatch

Seat's third-generation Leon is attractive and capable, but it can't quite reach the benchmark set by the imperious Volkswagen Golf
