The new SEAT Leon has received five-star reviews and endless praise, and it's clear to see why. This third generation model has truly come into its own, with a host of new developments which place it top of its class.
With a finely-tuned mechanical structure, classic, striking good looks and crammed full of the latest motoring technology, this exceptional car effortlessly achieves top ranking. Available in three different versions - the five-door, the Sports Coupé and the Sports Tourer - there is plenty of choice in the range.
Precision is the best way to describe the form of the Leon. With distinguished, dynamic lines and a specially designed lightweight structure, the Leon is ready for anything. Sporty alloy wheels, which range from 16 to 18 inches, and precision tyres offer a strong connection to the road. Striking, angular LED headlamps ensure maximum visibility and with the SE version upwards the powered panoramic glass sunroof gives an open-air option. The three-door design of the Sports Coupé gives it a unique presence, whilst the extended Tourer has sleek roof rails to give you additional storage options.
Inside the Leon, the master-craftsmanship continues, with exceptional comfort to allow a first-class driving experience. Seating is adjustable to allow you to set an ergonomic driving position, whilst the sporty seating, which comes as standard with the SC, provides extra support with firm shaping and comfortable spring-back cushioning. High-quality materials are used throughout; choose from soft cloth, leather or the specially developed Alcantara fibre, ideal for sporty drivers. The Sports Tourer offers copious interior space with flexible foldable seating, allowing a maximum of 1,470 litres of boot space. Added extras available with the Family Pack include rear sun-blinds and fold-down tables, ideal for games and drawing.
With an incredible range of petrol and diesel powertrains to choose from, you can customise your vehicle to suit your driving style. The diesel 110bhp 1.6-litre Ecomotive unit offers incredible fuel economy with just 87g/km of CO2 emissions. For increased power whilst retaining maximum efficiency the diesel 184bhp 2.0-litre unit is the way to go, still with only 119g/km emissions. Petrol options include 1.2, 1.4 and 1.8-litre manual and automatic units. With selected engines SEAT's fuel-saving Stop and Go technology is also available to help you reduce costs even further.
SEAT is dedicated to including maximum safety in its design and the Leon consequently achieved a five-star Euro NCAP rating. The Lane Assist function provides steering assistance by analysing road markings, keeping you safely inside your lane. The intuitive Tiredness Recognition System detects drowsiness by studying steering wheel movement and provides a helpful suggestion for you to take a break. The High Beam Assist feature for night driving automatically drops your headlamps if there is oncoming traffic, whilst the Front Assist function alerts you to help avoid a possible collision.
