Autocar sister title What Car? has crowned the Seat Leon as its Used Car of the Year.

The hatchback scored best for its mix of good driving dynamics, quality, safety and attractiveness.

It also won in the family car category, where it beat the Kia Cee’d and Ford Focus to the top spot.

Although not an overall winner, Audi took three titles. The Q7 (pictured below) won best used luxury SUV, the TT was best used coupé and the R8 was the most recommended used sports car.

Ford and BMW each took three category wins, while the electric Renault Zoe secured the used green car crown.

In total, 15 What Car? Used Car of the Year winners have been announced. The criteria What Car?'s expert judges used to decide the results covered quality, reliability, value and the availability of desirable versions.
