Alternatives

What alternatives should I consider to a used Renault Megane hatchback?

The Seat Leon shares much of its underpinnings with the class-leading Volkswagen Golf – and it shows. It’s great to drive, with tidy handling and a good range of punchy and efficient engines. It’s well equipped, too, and relatively cheap to buy as a used car, as well as being cheap to run.

The Volkswagen Golf sets the benchmark for family cars, whether in older Mk7 or newer Mk8 forms. It’s brilliant to drive, well equipped, supremely refined and comparatively cheap to run. The car has a classy quality that all of its rivals struggle to match.

  • Plenty of standard equipment
  • Good safety kit
  • Cheap to buy
  • Rear room is tight
