SUBTLE changes are being made to the SEAT Leon bringing the car up to date for 2017.
Sharper styling is being introduced front and back and some extra technology is coming on board.
There's also a new upmarket XCELLENCE trim and two new engines are joining the line up.
The new model will be on the road early next February and prices are still to be announced.
SEAT will also be releasing a hot new Leon Cupra range in the first few months of 2017.
The Leon XCELLENCE will sit at the top of the five model range and includes leather and alcantara upholstery as an option as well as chrome body highlights, LED interior lighting and keyless operation.
Across the range the style of the car has been tweaked with sharper lines, a wider grille and new look light clusters front and rear.
Two new engines - a 1.0-litre three cylinder turbo petrol and a 1.6-litre diesel - are being added to the range. Both have power outputs of 115ps.
Extra equipment includes a semi-autonomous drive system that controls the car in slow moving traffic, road sign recognition, blind spot monitors and a software upgrade which allows voice and gesture control for the onboard systems.
A wireless phone charger is also being fitted to the new models.
The changes are being made to all three models in the Leon range - the hatch, coupe and the estate - which are currently priced from Â£17,200.
