Why Lease A SEAT Leon?
What’s The Cabin Like?
How Does It Drive?
The current-generation Leon is slightly larger than its predecessor – so it’s slightly more practical inside. Rear-seat passengers get more legroom, so it’s easier to carry 4 adults in comfort. Carrying 5 is possible on short journeys but it’s a bit cramped. However, headroom is good across the board, so taller passengers won’t have to worry about an aching neck.
How much space you get in the boot depends whether you choose the Leon 5-door hatchback or the roomier Leon Estate. The former has 380 litres of luggage space, while the Estate will carry 620 litres of cargo. Those figures are up there with the class leaders, including the VW Golf. However, a Honda Civic or a Skoda Octavia are both going to give you a little more space.
With petrol, diesel and plug-in hybrid options, there’s a Leon to suit everyone. Those doing long motorway miles will want to lease a Leon diesel that can return more than 60mpg – while those doing short trips might prefer the 1.4-litre E-Hybrid. That car can travel between 36 and 40 miles on electricity alone, allowing it to manage more than 200mpg on the official economy test.
The petrol Leons are also very economical, with the 1.0 eTSI Evo mild hybrid managing between 45.6- and 51.4mpg, depending on the trim level. And the 130hp 1.5 TSI Evo is almost as efficient. Only the 2.0 TSI with an automatic gearbox and 190hp dips beneath 40mpg on average – and then only to 39.2mpg.
Leon 5-DoorThe practical 5-door hatchback is the most popular Leon shape.

The SEAT Leon Vs Competitors
Due to the fact it shares most of its mechanical components with the Volkswagen Golf and Audi A3, you can rest assured the Leon is one of the more reliable cars you can get. The engines and gearboxes are well proven, and the build quality is exemplary, so the SEAT is likely to be a dependable companion.
The SEAT Leon has 380 litres of boot space in 5-door hatchback form, but that grows to 620 litres if you choose the Estate. That’s very similar to the Volkswagen Golf, but the Skoda Octavia and Honda Civic both offer even more capacity. Be aware that E-Hybrid plug-in hybrids are less spacious in the boot than their conventionally powered stablemates.
If you want to lease a SEAT Leon, you’re faced with a range of 6 different models. The SE is the basic version, with SE Dynamic adding a few extra goodies. Then you can choose whether you want to opt for a racy FR or FR Sport variant, or you’d rather pick a more luxurious Xcellence or Xcellence Lux variant.
Yes, rear parking sensors are standard on every version of the SEAT. Lease a Leon higher up the range and you can add front parking sensors to that list, while range-topping models even get a rear-view camera.
Not only does the Leon have a big boot, but it’s also spacious in the cabin. Those in the front will have loads of space, while those in the back will be perfectly comfortable. Seating 4 adults is a doddle, so you know there’ll be no problem fitting kids back there.
Sporty styling, a youthful image and a lively driving experience are all factors which have been key to the Leon’s popularity. But customers also flock to lease the SEAT Leon because it’s a mature and well-rounded family car. It ticks all the sensible boxes, but it feels more exciting than a boring hatchback. It’s a recipe that has served SEAT well and the latest-generation Leon follows that to the letter.
