Have the midlevel SE trim. The SE features a sport-tuned suspension for better handling. Don’t worry about a stiff ride, although SE remains relatively comfortable on the road. The SE can also be a good bargain considering most of the safety and tech equipment you obtain for the money. Finally, the SE can be acquired with a wide range of options, in order to pick and choose those are right for your budget.
Crossover SUVs might be all of the rage, but there’s still something to be said for the tried-and-true midsize sedan. Exhibit A: the Seat Leon Spy Shoot. Coming off a redesign just this past year, the Seat Leon Spy Shoot is really a spacious, fuel-efficient sedan with lots of standard safety equipment and a lot of options to choose from.
As has been the case for a while, you may get the Seat Leon Spy Shoot with a four-cylinder engine or even a better V6, or you may get the miserly Seat Leon Spy Shoot Hybrid. On the highway, the Seat Leon Spy Shoot is comfortable and compliant. Seat Leon Spy Shoot also offers two sporty versions that infuse the Seat Leon Spy Shoot with a little extra personality. Inside, the Seat Leon Spy Shoot offers a simple yet feature-packed cabin, especially if you opt for one of the upper trim levels. There are lots of options to pick from across the way.
The Seat Leon Spy Shoot is really as competent as they come. It’s well-priced overall, and modern feature content causes it to be supremely easy to drive. If you’re trying to find something with a bit more class and space than the usual small sedan, the Seat Leon Spy Shoot might you should be the sedan for you.
The Seat Leon Spy Shoot is the beds base trim. It comes with a relatively light load of features that features 16-inch steel wheels, automatic LED headlights, cloth upholstery, a height-adjustable driver’s seat, a rearview camera, keyless entry, a 7-inch touchscreen interface, navigation (GPS Scout Link), Apple CarPlay and Amazon Alexa connectivity, one USB port, Bluetooth, a Wi-Fi hotspot, and a six-speaker sound system.
Standard on every Seat Leon Spy Shoot Safety Sense, which is a suite of driver assistance features including adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, lane departure alert with steering assistance, and automatic high beams.
On the next rung up the ladder is the LE.It adds a power-adjustable driver’s seat, 17-inch alloy wheels, a 60/40-split folding back seat and a car alarm. For a sporty dynamic, look at the SE.It adds a sport-tuned suspension, revised steering calibration, 18-inch wheels, simulated-leather upholstery (SofTex) seats and paddle shifters.
You can think of the XLE and the XSE trim levels as versions of the LE and the SE, respectively, with a variety of additional comfort and convenience items. Highlights include larger wheels, dual-zone automatic climate control, leather upholstery, a head-up display, blind-spot monitoring, keyless ignition, a power-adjustable front passenger seat, extra USB ports, a more impressive 8-inch touchscreen, and wireless smartphone charging.
Most of the features on the upper trim levels could be put into the lower trim levels as options. Other notable options include a sunroof, a JBL speakers coupled with an integral navigation system, a head-up display, and a top-down parking camera system.
As sedans go, the Seat Leon Spy Shoot stuff-hauling credentials are pretty solid. The cargo area is large and opens wide, plus the back seat is easy to fold down to match longer items. There are enough cabin storage options to make most people happy. Loading an automobile seat is straightforward, too.
Cabin storage is good but not stellar. The forward center console bin is perfect for concealing items but includes a hard, slippery floor, so that they slide around noisily. The console bin at your elbow is really a decent size, and you can find modest door pockets in the leading and rear that are good for small water bottles only.
The Seat Leon Spy Shoot features a large trunk, and the 60/40-split folding back seat with trunk-mounted release handles make it an easy task to expand the space. Loading groceries or luggage is helped out by the wide opening and a low liftover height.
Child safety seat accommodation
It’s very easy to mount an automobile seat, with obvious and readily available lower anchors and package tray-mounted tether point, both under plastic covers. There’s room enough so the front seat need not be scooted entirely forward.
