On test the Leon recorded 35.0mpg at the pumps, whereas the Skoda notched up 39.4mpg. This means you’ll spend around £200 more per year on fuel running the SEAT at £1,796 in total.
DEPRECIATION The SEAT’S predicted residual values are marginally lower than the Skoda’s, at 30.6 per cent versus 33.8 per cent. As the Scout is also cheaper it will lose less money. The Leon will shed £19,586, whereas the Octavia will lose only £17,660.
