New SEAT Leon prices


SEAT Leon, 2020, front

SEAT has announced pricing for its new Leon hatchback and estate car which sees the two ranges start from £19,855 and £22,455.

That is for a 1.0-litre 110ps TSI hatch and a more powerful 1.5-litre estate which develops 130ps, both in entry level SE trim.

The initial line ups will top out from £26,865 for a FR trim hatch with a 1.5-litre TSI petrol engine developing 150ps and £27,895 for a similar grade estate.

Overall, the new Leon will be available in three trims - SE, SE Dynamic and FR - and with five power choices with outputs of 115ps from a 1.0 three-cylinder TSI manual, 130ps and 150ps for a 1.5 TSI manual; 150ps 1.5 eTSI MHEV DSG and a 115ps 2.0 TDI manual diesel.

The eTSI variant uses mild hybrid technology, with a 48-volt system mated to the combustion engine allowing engine-shut off coasting as well as general engine assistance.

As such it is rated at 48.7mpg at best under the new WLTP testing procedure with emissions of 133g/km.

The 2.0-litre diesel - available only on the hatch - remains the most economical at 67.3mpg with emissions of 111g/km.

All vehicles in the range have keyless start, LED headlights with automatic high beam, electric and heated side mirrors, electronic parking brake, an eight-inch infotainment system and SEAT's Connect technology as standard.

SE Dynamic upgrades the infotainment to the SEAT Digital Cockpit with Navi, complete with 10-inch infotainment screen and 10.25-inch digital driver binnacle, front and rear parking sensors, tinted rear side windows, as well as larger 17-inch alloy wheels as opposed to the 16-inch rims on the SE model.

The sportier FR trim level adds additional elements both inside and out, on top of the SE Dynamic trim which include different front and rear bumpers, dual exhaust pipes and a special suspension set-up which reduces ride height by 15mm.

Inside, the FR cabin includes contrast stitching, a leather multifunction steering wheel, three-zone air conditioning, a wireless charging tray in the front while the cars also have LED dynamic indicators and illuminated front aluminium door plates.

Pricing and data for FR Sport, Xcellence and Xcellence Lux trims, as well as the 2.0-litre 150ps TDI engines, will follow later in 2020.

Since it first arrived in 1999 the Leon has notched up more than 2.2 million sales globally with 252,416 in the UK over its three previous generations.
