I test drove a non FR and ended up getting an FR, I can’t honestly say I found them any different.
Additionally, my previous car was a Fabia estate with normal suspension, once again I haven’t really noticed any difference.
But obviously you have to make your own mind up.

Next to no difference from FR to SE Technology in real world driving. I'd say the FR was a slightly sharper drive too, with less body roll.

Hi
Any other issues with the FR at all .seating and ride as these are the issues that worried me as been Old
I may have to bite the bullet and change I except I will loose money but circumstance's have changed and money not a issue
I feel the 95 engine struggles and I am fed up of folding the mirrors in and out to get into the Garage
Looked at Excellence Lux e don't like the keyless
Cant stand the dash on the Excellence
Looking at the Audi Q2 but has a blind spot issue plus slightly lower height and all the Seat kit extra plus a smaller screen

I have found my FR seating fine despite being old and large. Like you I was a bit worried before I got mine as I hadn’t sat in one, but have not regretted it at all. I just think the FR or FR sport is the best bang for your buck.
