Passenger & boot space
How it copes with people and clutter
There’s absolutely loads of head room in the front of the Cupra Leon and its seats slide back a long way too. In fact, we can confidently say that, no matter how tall you are (within reason), you’ll fit just fine. And you’ll find an array of storage spots for all your accessories, too.
If you’re thinking the Leon is bound to be a less practical choice than a VW Golf GTI you’re in for a surprise. It’s actually longer than its VW cousin and has quite a lot more rear leg room as a result – as much as the Ford Focus ST. That means two tall adults fit in the back with no problem, or three with a degree of shoulder-rubbing.
