The current generation of the SEAT Leon is still seen as one of the finest passenger cars on the market – in 2017, 5 years after being its release, it was recognized by WhatCar? with the “Best Family Car” award in the £18,000 to £20,000 category. Widely regarded as a greatly economical choice that offers both performance and advanced technology, the SEAT Leon is a perfect option.
Design and Performance
Having just received a facelift in 2017, the new Leon is looking better than ever. The redesigned front bumper and grille, as well as the now-LED headlights and taillights lend it a confident and modern look that can compete with any car out on the road. The same type of overhaul can be found at the rear of the Leon, with more defined lines and a fresher tailgate.
Step inside and you will instantly appreciate the quality upholstery, as well as the enhanced spaciousness. The redesigned Leon 5-door allows for a dashboard that is more driver-oriented than ever, with the controls now being easier to reach and more intuitive than ever, perfectly supplementing the LED driver console.
Drive quality has been improved across the board with the new facelift – one turn of the key and you will notice the improved suspension, handling, performance and fuel economy. In addition to a 1.6-litre and 2.0 TDI diesel that offers 115bhp or 150bhp, you have a choice of 4 petrol engines.
The most noteworthy petrol engine, the 1.4-litre TSI, is available in either 125 or 150bhp and delivers as much as 64 mpg, with emissions as low as 102 g/km. If you would like even better handling, the XCELLENCE trim offers a softer suspension in addition to 17’’ alloy wheels.
Technology and Safety
Forgetting your charger will no longer be an issue, thanks to the integrated wireless charger placed right at the heart of the console. Journeys will also never be boring again, thanks to the 8-inch infotainment system with Full Link Technology that is compatible with Apple and Android phones alike, allowing you to stream your favourite music and stay up-to-date with your social life.
In addition to a host of airbags as standard, the new SEAT Leon makes life easier for you thanks to its innovative technology. Prevention and damage minimizing features such as Pedestrian Protect, Emergency Assist and the intelligent Traffic Jam Assist allow your SEAT Leon 5-door to be as safe as possible.
