AN uprated plug-in hybrid powertrain with a zero emission range of more than 60 miles is coming to the SEAT Leon as the Spanish car maker changes its popular medium-sized hatchback.

The new generation of eHybrid engines deliver 204ps and use a 1.5-litre 150ps petrol engine mated to an electric motor. It can be recharged at up to 50kW on DC fast-chargers or at 11kW at home on an AC wallbox.

The new powertrain is one of a number of changes being made to the Leon range which also sees 1.5-litre TSI engines being fitted to all petrol models.

There are now seven different powertrain options, with outputs ranging from 115ps to 204ps including a 2.0 TDI diesel.

The entry point for the SEAT Leon is now the new 1.5 TSI engine (previously it was a 1.0 TSI), delivering 115ps with a six-speed manual transmission. CO2emissions are 120-132g/km while officially it is rated at up to 44mpg.

It's also available with two mild hybrid options (eTSI) - 1.5 litre 115ps and 150ps available with seven-speed DSG transmissions.

The SEAT Leon also receives technological upgrades in the exterior, with new optional matrix LED headlamps available for the first time in SEAT's hatchback.

Inside the Leon has a new and improved human-machine interface in a digital cockpit with a 10.25-inch display behind the steering wheel as well as in a larger 10.4-inch standard infotainment system or an optional 12.9-inch infotainment system.

SEAT says the latest Leon will enter production later in May 2024. Prices and UK specifications will be announced later.
