The Seat Leon Estate is a good all-rounder, with competitive list prices, lots of equipment and decent running costs. But its rivals outclass it in a couple of key area, such as practicality, ride comfort and quietness at speed.get the best price
Trim: SE Dynamic
SE Dynamic is the one to go for. For a still reasonable list price it adds privacy glass, 17in alloys wheels, sat-nav and front and rear parking sensors.
Engine: 1.0 TSI
If you're on a budget and looking on with envy at the higher-power engines in the Leon Estate's range, don't fret: we think the 113bhp 1.0-litre petrol is a belter. It’s as peppy as a Focus Estate 1.0 125 Ecoboost, giving good acceleration when you put your foot down (officially the 0-62mph time is 10.1sec) and, being turbocharged, it has a decent amount of shove. So, from around 1500rpm it's agreeably flexible. Officially it'll yield up to 50.4mpg but, being a three-cylinder, it sounds thrummy when revved.
