Seat Leon [UK]
SEAT is in the next phase of its story, bringing new cars, efficient and electrified engines, new standards of connectivity, and greater emphasis on design, with the all-new SEAT Leon the latest model added to the line-up.
Priced from just £19,855, the new Leon is unmistakably part of the family, but takes a huge leap forward in both technology and quality. Customers that purchase a new Leon will also benefit from low insurance group ratings, with the SE models rated as 18E, rising to 22E for the FR (1.5 150PS eTSI (MHEV) DSG) models.
And following purchase, after 36 months years and 60,000 miles, the Leon 1.5-litre TSI 130PS FR will retain 42 per cent of its value, according to CAP HPI, more than ever before.
The Leon has been a cornerstone of the SEAT range since 1999, accumulating more than 2.2 million sales globally (252,416 in the UK) across three generations of the model, transforming the brand into a key competitor in the UK.
The all-new SEAT Leon is the latest vehicle in this lineage, designed, developed and built at SEAT's facilities in Martorell, Barcelona.
The hatch and Estate sector of the market is increasingly competitive, with new entrants and a move towards larger vehicles; however, the all-new SEAT Leon, with a strong design evolution, greater practicality, connectivity and efficient, electrified powertrains, meets the challenge.
"The SEAT Leon has been improving generation after generation being able to conquer new customers. In 2019, the Leon was the best-selling car for SEAT with more than 150,900 vehicles delivered, as well as being the best-selling car in Spain during the past five years," said SEAT's Executive Vice-president for Sales and marketing and CUPRA CEO, Wayne Griffiths. "We have now created the best Leon ever. The new Leon has been designed keeping the "created in Barcelona" spirit and at the same time being the safest, most connected and with the widest range of engines the brand has ever seen. We believe we have all the ingredients to make of the new Leon a great choice not only for private customers but also for corporate fleets."
