What alternatives should I consider to a used Seat Leon coupe?

The Volkswagen Scirocco is perhaps the closest rival to the Leon SC, but the Seat has the advantage of being a newer design with more engine options and a much better infotainment system with full smartphone capabilities. True, the Scirocco is better finished inside and has a slightly more compliant ride, but there’s little in it in everyday motoring. Plus, the Leon SC is much more practical overall.

For those looking for rear-wheel drive thrills, try out the BMW 2 Series coupé. It has a separate boot rather than a hatchback, but the 2 Series feels like a classier car inside and you can even go for a powerful six-cylinder petrol engine with the BMW, provided you’re prepared to pay extra for the privilege, of course.
