SEAT Leon Estate crowned Towcar of the Year by the Caravan and Motorhome Club

The Leon Estate has been named the overall Towcar of the Year at the Caravan and Motorhome Club Towcar of the Year Awards 2022.

This SEAT model, the SEAT Leon FR fitted with a 1.5-litre TSI petrol engine and seven-speed DSG gearbox, also took home a victory in the 1,100kg-1,200kg caravan weight category.

Each entrant was put through its paces in a variety of driving environments at Millbrook Proving Ground while hitched to a caravan ballasted to 85% of the car’s kerb weight to determine the winner of each category.

Capable of towing up to 1,700kg (max braked trailer weight), the SEAT Leon Estate can be specified with a retractable towing hook. The judges complimented the car’s powertrain, boot space and comfortable interior.

SEAT also claimed golf at the WhatCar? towcar awards 2021, where Leon and Ateca models came out on top in the sub-1,400kg and 1,500kg – 1,699kg weight categories respectively.
