Alcantara sports seats feature supporting side bolsters which help keep you in-place as you take the hatch through its paces

There is quite a bit of familiarity with many of the switchgear taken from its VW parent, albeit a few changes to the mouldings, and genuinely there is a German quality to the fit and finish. Ergonomics too is near-identical, with similar button and switch placement to its German cousin.

Since the Leon sits on the Volkswagen family MQB architecture, interior space, inclusive of shoulder and legroom is comparable to the Golf. While the GTi now features a digitised instrument binnacle, the Leon still sticks with an analogue unit, similar to the pre-facelifted Golf.

The infotainment unit is comprehensive, and also provides users with virtual performance gauges, from anything from boost to power and torque figures; the unit also offers mobile connectivity to Android and Apple devices.

Alcantara sports seats feature supporting side bolsters which help keep you in-place as you take the hatch through its paces, while a beefy flat bottomed steering wheel feels good in your hands.

Boot space is a respectable 380 litres, and with the rear 40:60 style seats folded down, total space adds up to 1,210 litres. Little thoughtful mouldings to hook bags onto the side are certainly a plus. There is however a bit of a lip to lift your cargo over before you can access the boot.

Good service by swiftquote. Received quotation after 1 day and via sms. Another similar site will call you and if they cannot reach you, too bad. Obtained the highest quote compared to other car sites.
