This is my Motability vehicle, and one of the key factors for selection was the huge flat boot space which means that a mobility scooter is easily lifted into the load area - a great bonus! I am so impressed with the Leon ST. The vehicle is fitted with the DSG auto gearbox, which is quite simply the smoothest, sweetest gearbox that I have ever experienced and makes for a very comfortable drive. Matched with the 1.6 diesel engine, the car has a great balance of power and economy, with loads of mid-range torque for smooth, safe overtaking. The engine feels more like a 2 litre than a 1.6. The car is very comfortable and pretty quiet and can be driven for prolonged periods without any noticeable fatigue. So far, the car has travelled 3,500 miles with an average m.p.g. of 62.4. On a recent drive from the south coast to Lincolnshire, the average was 70+mpg! At this stage I have experienced no rattles or squeaks and the vehicle seems well put together. My only regret is not having the tech pack fitted (a £400 extra option with Motability), which I found out on delivery means that the voice controlled phone facility is not functional.
