New Leon a headline act

SEAT has released the first images and details of the all-new Leon, which will be the Spanish brand’s headline display at this month’s Paris Motor Show.

The Leon, said to be the most advanced car that Seat has ever made, will be the first model of a completely refreshed model line based on much the same chassis.

Thanks to new production processes, the car is 90kg lighter than its predecessor, which in turn helps performance and emissions.

An Ecomotive version emitting 99g/km of CO2 has been confirmed, along with a choice of petrol and diesel engines that make great leaps forward in terms of emissions, while being no less or even more powerful than before.
