Despite sharing many mechanical components with the VW Golf R, the Seat Leon ST 300 Cupra has its own identity. Sporty flair on the outside, and familiarity on the inside. Blistering performance lacks, unfortunately, noise to accompany it. Grip is sublime, thanks to a 4DRIVE system. Being the estate this is a vastly practical family car, and it costs a few grand less than the equivalent Golf R. You’ll struggle not to love it.
