The Cupra Leon 310 estate is practical, surprisingly comfortable and quick, but we'd avoid the e-Hybrid 300, which is mediocre to drive by hot hatch standards, and the pure-petrol 300 hatchback.
The trimSee full equipment
This trim is reserved for the 1.5 TSI 150 and 2.0 TSI 190 engines. You get 18in alloys, LED headlights, a digital instrument cluster, 10.1in touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, three-zone climate control, plus front and rear parking sensors along with a back-up camera, and adaptive cruise control. There’s also the added quirk of a heated steering wheel.
