Used Seat Leon ST 2013-present review

Used Seat Leon ST 13-present

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

If the Leon ST doesn’t quite offer enough space then it’s worth looking at the Skoda Octavia Estate as an alternative. Not only does it have a roomier boot but passengers can also stretch out slightly more. Just be aware that while running costs will be similar to the Leon ST’s, the Skoda is not as enjoyable to drive.

For something that matches the Seat for driving enjoyment you could consider the Ford Focus Estate, but be aware that its boot is significantly smaller than almost anything else in this class.

Others to mull over include the roomy and economical Vauxhall Astra Sports Tourer, or if you’d prefer something with hybrid power the Toyota Auris Touring Sports.

Then of course there’s arguably the best all-rounder of all in the shape of the Volkswagen Golf Estate. You get slightly more boot space, a more comfortable drive and a classier interior than with the equivalent Seat, but be prepared to pay a sizeable premium for it.
