Very good price! The only caveat is that they do not deliver but they will pay up to £100 travel fees for you to go to the dealership to get a full handover.

Of course this is the much discussed 1.5 engine with "kangarooing" issues which may be an issue for some. That said I'll probably get the same engine again when I renew my lease.

great deal and a decent car to drive.
bought one on a deal from here beg of year.

I make that £168/month in effect.
Not bad, I wonder whether the claimed 57.6 mpg is achievable in the real world?

Rather a dull looking eurobox car though, but for the money still a good deal.

I've got the 1.2 version of this (109hp) and get around 45mpg with not much motorway driving in that.
Nice find. Good cheap lease for day to day usage.

Is there a chance that they would take a part exchange to cover the deposit?

Not generally on a lease. You'll have to ask the dealer.
or contact them about a different lease profile. Overall costs should be the same. (e.g. 3 months or even 1 month down)

If you go to a dealer direclty and see if they'll match the deal, they may also be able to do a part-ex. That's what I did with my Skoda.

I have the same engine/gearbox and get an occasional judder when the engine is cold. It's not ideal but in no way a deal breaker.

I have a '19 1.5TSi Manual Leon. I've not done any big motorway trips so can't comment on that. I occasionally get into the 50s driving conservatively on 40mph roads around me. If it's stop start traffic it's usually ~35. In normal traffic I usually see ~45.

I do too and agree not a deal breaker. Has never caused me major issues but seems to affect others more.
From what I read before purchasing this car myself the engine problem mainly affected the T-Roc. I was worried about it but....I've had no problems in my first few months. It's a lovely car to drive, the MPG does look to be more low 40s than high 50s but its early days and im sure it will improve.

The engine is fast and responsive. To me its like a rocketship coming from a 1.2 59bhp corsa.

The level of equipment you get for the price you pay is outstanding value. Front / Rear sensors , Full Sat Nav / Bluetooth media system / electronic brake / stop start etc etc

I cannot reccomend this car enough. I love it.

Try calling your local SEAT dealers, they may provide a similar if not better deal than this.
I leased my 1.5 130 FR ST at the start of the year & mainly use it for my 20 non motorway mile commute, with the occasional short town trip plus a less frequent long drive. If I drive really spirited, ie thrash it like a rally car, I get in the 30’s. For a spirited/casual mix it’s more like mid to high 40’s. On a 500 mile round trip to the south coast last week it was high 50’s. My long term average is high 40’s.

I do love it but compared to my 1.4 150 that I own it has inferior Hankook’s, compared to ContiSportContact 5’s, and it doesn’t push you into the back of your seat...blame WLTP/dieselgate!

Real mpg 36 - 54 so you’d assume 36 was around town and 54 on a run,so late 30s around town seems right!

You've misread that. That's the range of submissions. 45.9 MPG is the Real MPG.

It won’t be far off, I’ve had the 2.0 FR Sport and even that was averaging 42mpg, managed to get 65mpg on a 70 mile motorway journey

Are those figures from the car's computer? Can you trust them if they are? What manufacturer is going to put an accurate measure of MPG in their cars if their competitors are showing much better? It's not as if the VW group doesn't have history.

I was putting in less than half of the fuel on the same journeys compared to my Astra VXR 2.0t I had, this averaged 20mpg. So I was very happy with it.

Me too in the 1.4 FR ST
We have 3 of these at home - 2 of the 1.5s and my 1.4 - you can't go wrong with them - performance, value and economy.
This is manual unfortunately. Is there an option to get automatic in the same price range?

No Bertie - I have not. The Real MPG is an average of all MPGs submitted.

36 MPG is the lowest MPG submitted. 54.8 MPG is the highest.

The Real MPG remains 45.9 MPG.
Not a bad car, drove one as a hire car in Spain recently. Looking to start leasing again as my 2.0 A3 TDI is giving me grief. Would be hard to let go of 60-70 mpg on my 100 mile round trip commute though, wouldn't look forward to paying 30% more in fuel per year

45.9 average - it is an important distinction

38258615-V40Mc.jpg

As above your own screenshots says otherwise.

Although it really isn't hard to grasp the concept. Feel free to look up the definition of real. Then you are giving a measurement against it that is on a continuous scale (probability of hitting anything exactly on a conitnous scale is also zero). Further you are then giving the average but omitting that fact.

It would be like saying the real height of a UK man is 5ft 9. Does that make someone less or more than 5 ft 9 less real?

As above the term real against mpg is nonsensical without the average in context.
