It’s the first time we’ve seen a three-door Leon, with all previous generations being sold with an extra pair of doors. The sleek body and defined lines suit the car well, without eating into the 380-litre boot on offer in the five-door model.
The engine line-up is identical, while prices should start at around £500 less. Buyers will be able to choose from S, SE and FR specs when the car arrives later this year, with top-spec cars offering 17-inch alloys and parking sensors as standard.
