How it copes with people and clutter

Front space

There’s absolutely loads of head room in the front of the Leon Estate, and its seats slide back a long way, too. In fact, we can confidently say that no matter how tall you are, you’ll fit.

You’ll also find an array of storage spots dotted around the place. These include a decent-sized glove box and broad door bins, a tray for your mobile phone in front of the gear lever, two cupholders and a cubby under the front armrest.

There’s also a ski hatch on FR models and above, meaning you can carry two rear passengers in comfort and still slide a long, narrow load through between them.

Boot space

The Leon’s boot isn’t up there with the real leviathans of the estate car class – namely the Mercedes E-Class and Skoda Superb – but it betters the Toyota Corolla Touring Sports and is almost a match for the Octavia. 

Better still, there’s only a small lip at the boot entrance, along with handy pockets at either side of boot that you can use to stop small items from flying around. There’s also a sliding tonneau cover that you can pull across to keep everything covered. Pick top Xcellence Lux trim and you’re treated to an electric tailgate with gesture control – handy when your arms are full of shopping.
