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.

The 2.0 TSI 300 has performance aplenty, as you’d expect given the headline power figure. It isn't just the swift 0-62mph time of 5.7sec that impresses; you don’t have to work the engine at all hard for it to feel potent, making it pleasingly muscular even if you're only trundling along. If you need to overtake, it’ll leapfrog slower-moving traffic after a momentary pause from the automatic gearbox. Make no mistake, this is a fast car.
