The FR and FR+ will replace the Sport and Cupra Leons.
Distinctive features include new LED rear lights and unique front and rear bumpers.
The FR+ has a long list of features including Bluetooth, satnav, an SD card slot and a DAB radio
Twin chrome exhaust pipes and silver painted door mirrors set the FR apart.
18 inch Ibera wheels fill the arches well and provide a harder ride, but not uncomfortably so.
The 1.4 TSI in the FR feels gutsy and willing.
The FR+ models with 208bhp for the petrol and 168bhp for the diesel engine, both feel properly quick.
The FR has plenty of grip and is responsive.
At only £18,205 for the Leon FR 1.4 TSI, it is one of the best available models in the warm to hot hatch market.
