Summary

Parkers Rating:

3.5 out of 5

Leon is the Volkswagen Golf with a brighter personality and lower pricing. It's the model that announced SEAT had arrived. Against the previous-generation Golf, Leon looks leaner, sportier and more muscular. But it's not just a VW in fancier clothes. It has a functional interior, a large boot space and an impressive range of engines.

What owners say...

 The boot is quite big, and the cabin feels roomy with lots of places to put my things. The seats are not huge so nice if you're small sized.

 The best of both worlds. 180bhp performance on tap coupled with an indicated 43mpg in 6th if kept largely off boost on a run.
