The Leon ST has so much space for a compact estate car, itâ€™s very versatile, a lovely comfortable drive on long journeys and is incredibly cheap to lease, so much better value than the equivalent golf estate with the same underpinnings. Not had any issues with it this first year, 2 year servicing keeps maintenance costs down, Iâ€™d have another.

My Leon ST is the 1.5 TSI DSG Xcellene Lux. I added the panna roof and spare wheel to my order. The car is simply brilliant. I got mine as have a young family and wanted driver assistance to help after those long hot summer days out. The lane keep assist and adaptive cruise control does a grand job when your tired. Seat have done a decent job on automation with this car. It holds perfectly well to the lanes. The adaptive cruise control is really good in long queus of traffic as it's doing all the work and not you. The 1.5 is pretty punchy and sounds greart. The panna roof brings a lot of joy to the kids in the back and makes the car very bright inside in winter days. In the warmer days we often go out just for a scenic drive as its a real pleasure and the kids laugh a big open roof. Boot sapce is great with double shelfs. Can get three big cases in the back with no seats down. Seats are very comfy and I'm fine in them after 3 hours of driving. There is critism about the dash being bland on a lot of pro reviews but I cannot really see what the issue is. Looks great to me. You can change all the colours of the LED interior around the doors and dash which is a nice touch. The infotainment does a decent job. I especially love the digital cluster display as you can move the sat nav map between the main screen and your digital cluster. This again makes it easier to read and concentrate on the road. It's packed with loads of helpful information as you cycle through the menu's. You've got the apple and andriod sat nav variations included two so you can alternate between the onboard seat one or the others if you prefer. I always stick to the Seat one as it does a decent job. Stereo sounds great all around. Great choice of colours and got the blue one on mine with no extra cost. It's got decent space for those bulky car seats for the family readers. I'm 6'2 and my daugher's seat fits behind me no issues as a 4 year old. The key thing with Seat is there do not do much in the way of options as you go up in the trims. The higher the trim the more it gets you. Thats espcially important as options bmup up the price but if its bundeld it makes it cheaper.

The Leon ST FR Sport is a fantastic and very underrated car. It's extremely practical, can be driven sedately or more sporting when the mood takes you. It's definitely a wolf in sheep's clothing and is so quick it surprises many drivers of so called performance cars. Build quality and design are excellent, it's extremely comfortable and quiet, has all the equipment you need, and is surprisingly cheap to run. The best car I've ever had, and there have been a few!

Performance and motorway driving is great. The fuel consumption is not great. Looking forward to leasing the new model in the future

A very capable car, I personally love it's subtle styling and rarity on British streets. Practical as a family car, good space for 4 and the adaptive suspension and excellent seats make it comfortable on all but the worst road conditions. An exciting sports car when you you want it to be, the power, traction and cornering are remarkable. Driver feedback is not a strong point, but still an excellent overall package.

Good - Its fast and handles well. Bad - build quality and materials are average, technology seems dated and buggy and quite often needs resetting in the morning before the screen comes to life, rear seats are a little tight for 2 car seats and fuel economy worse than expected (late 20s vs mid 30s on a 4 day test drive - WLTP changes?)
