Avoid the plug-in hybrid version, which is mediocre to drive by hot hatchback standards. Even the pure petrol 300 hatchback is hard to recommend, given that you could have a Honda Civic Type R or Toyota Yaris GR for the same sort of money. The 310 estate makes much more sense, because it's the fastest Cupra Leon yet is practical and surprisingly comfortable.get the best price

Upgrading to VZ2 brings bigger 19in alloys, but more importantly the adoption of adaptive suspension allowing you to stiffen or soften the ride depending upon the road conditions. This is also the trim level that unlocks our favourite TSI 300 engine.

A nice, flexible engine – with the electric motor adding extra low-end thrust – but, unlike the 2.0 TSI 300, it’s not fast (for a hot hatch) when you really gun it. 0-62mph takes 6.7sec, which is only about a second faster than a regular Seat Leon 1.5 TSI 150 and miles off the pace of all its key rivals. It will travel 36 miles on battery power alone, which its rivals can’t do.
