Bold, strong and connected, this model is better than ever and ready to take on the road ahead with style and dynamic. Bringing a sportier look, modern interiors and connectivity for an all-round smoother driving experience, this new car really brings more in every aspect.

6 trims are available on this model starting at SE, then SE Dynamic, FR, FR Sport, Xcellence and the premium Xcellence Lux.

This model is available in a range of colours, including White, Emocion Red, Asphalt Blue, Desire Red, Magnetic Grey, Midnight Black, Nevada White and Urban Silver.

Keyless entry, two USB points, LED headlights with automatic high beam, electric and heated mirrors, SEATConnect and a leather steering wheel comes as standard on all models.

*SEAT Leon Estate versions start from £23,500


The interior of this new model is light and bright, and ensures that space and comfort surround those who enter. The air-vents mimic the design of the front grille, and features characteristically sharp lines throughout.

Minimalistic design fills the cabin, and dominating the front dashboard is a free-standing 8.25” touchscreen (up to 10" on higher spec models) infotainment centre offering all the connectivity you may need.

If you opt for the sportier FR model, there is colourful stitching on the seats which match the exterior paint job, and higher spec FR Sport versions add customisable mood lighting from the dashboard to the doors.

SE Dynamic trim upwards get SEAT’s Digital Cockpit, which means a digital instrument cluster behind the steering wheel. Wraparound ambient lighting illuminates the full width of the dashboard and into the doors, which also acts as a safety system such as blind spot detection. These models also hold online connectivity, 3D connected navigation, gesture control and voice control.

Gone are the days of the three-door Leon option, offering a 5 door hatchback on each of the 6 trims available. For the first time ever, a handwriting-style ‘Leon’ badge script proudly presents itself on the bootlid adding more character to the stylish exterior.

18” alloy wheels guide the new SEAT Leon along the road so you can always arrive in style, and distinctive lines and sporty details bring the new fresh look to life.

Continuous LED headlights light the full length of the rear design, and LED high beam is automatic on this model, so you don’t have to worry about switching off when a car is ahead.

The new SEAT Leon protects you and offers assistance at all times. Side & Exit Assist use advanced sensors to monitor blind spots when changing lanes, or when pulling out of a parking spot or exiting the car.

An attractive front diamond grille is at the forefront of the new Leon, meaning this car is not made to fit in.

Stand bold with SEAT, it’s time to shine.

Engine and other specs

The new SEAT Leon is available in petrol, diesel and hybrid engines. Entry-level model will be equipped with a 1.0 litre three-cylinder petrol engine with 110hp, with the option to upgrade to a more powerful 130hp and 150hp 1.5 litre four-cylinder options and a 2.0 litre model with 190hp.

The 1.0 and 1.5 litre engines come with a six-sped manual gearbox as standard, while the 2.0 litre version gets a seven-speed DSG automatic.

A mild-hybrid is also available, and uses a 48V starter-generator with a 1.0 or 1.5 litre petrol engine, which together helps to reduce fuel consumption and gives a slight boost when you accelerate.

A full plug-in hybrid with a 1.4 litre four-cylinder 204hp engine and a separate electric motor that’ll manage 38 miles between 3.5 hour charges is also available on the new SEAT Leon. This model comes with a six-speed DSG automatic gearbox and a 13kWh battery.
