This car has been superseded by a newer model, click here to go to the latest SEAT Leon Cupra R (10-12) review.

Parkers overall rating: 4 out of 5 4.0

Gets a good level of safety equipment including electronic stability control and plenty of airbags. Previous non-Thatcham approved alarm has been upgraded and a tracker is fitted, too.

There is not a huge amount of useable storage space in the cabin area, but the boot is large enough and will split-fold to carry larger items.
