Auto Express - - Road tests -

The sportier chas­sis set-up means the Leon isn’t as re­lax­ing on the move. It’s not as ca­pa­ble at ei­ther end of the spec­trum in which th­ese cars op­er­ate, although the en­gine de­liv­ers de­cent per­for­mance.

TRAC­TION The X-pe­ri­ence fea­tures SEAT’S clever XDS elec­tronic dif­fer­en­tial lock on both axles, so trac­tion is un­wa­ver­ing in less-than-ideal con­di­tions. How­ever, the Skoda also of­fers a sim­i­lar level of sure-foot­ed­ness, so the Leon has no ad­van­tage here.
