How to make the most of your car’s technology, sponsored by the new SEAT Leon
5 May 2017

Modern cars, such as the new SEAT Leon, now come packed with all sorts of useful technology. But making the most of all those connectivity, entertainment, comfort and other systems can be a challenge.

That’s why SEAT teamed up with Autocar to highlight tips and tricks to make your motoring just that little bit easier. We recently asked for your top car tech tips – the shortcuts, hacks and ideas that save you time or effort. We then sifted through the entries, and put some of the best to the test. Check out this video for more:

We offered £100 of Amazon vouchers for our favourite tips. Jamie Vincent from Dorset won a prize for his tip about having your messages read to you on the go. Grete Benson from Hereford was also a winner for her suggestion to use the heated seats in your car to keep takeaway food warm while driving home.

Handily for anyone who prefers their takeaway pizza warm, heated front seats – actually designed for keeping you warm – are available on the new SEAT Leon as part of the Winter Pack option. There’s also plenty of other useful technology available, including an eight-inch colour touchscreen that features Full Link Technology. That means you can connect your smartphone to your car using the full gamut of current options: MirrorLink, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

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
