Review continues below...

This is one of the older engines in the Leon line-up, and it shows. The 1.8-litre turbocharged unit has a healthy 177bhp, but it’s also relatively inefficient, with CO2 emissions of 137g/km. It doesn’t feel that much faster than the more economical, cheaper 1.4 EcoTSI model, either. It gets a six-speed manual gearbox as standard, but can also be ordered with a seven-speed DSG automatic ’box.
