SEAT has released details of its new Leon hatchback, which sees a revamped version of the Spanish car hitting the UK market in early 2017.
Now into its fourth generation, the new model is a progression of the Leon brand and keeps many key markers of the previous look, but updates it for a fresher design. Coming in the five-door, sports coupe and sports tourer models, the new Leon will also be coming with a Cupra version later in 2017.
For the new version, Seat has added technological updates such as traffic jam assist, lane assist and pedestrian protection system, which all ensure safety in the urban environment. Other systems that are available for the Leon include traffic sign recognition, blind spot detection, emergency assist and high beam assist.
Coming with plenty of technological additions, such as the latest Easy Connect infotainment system, Seat Full Link and ConnectApp, the Leon will also come with Media System Plus and an eight-inch touchscreen. Another innovation is the Connectivity Box, which will facilitate wireless phone charging.
The Leon will come in S, SE Dynamic, SE Technology, FR and the new XCELLENCE trims, with the top end XCELLENCE adding an upmarket feel to the hatchback with Alcantara material inside and chrome detailing on the exterior.
Seat has also updated the range of engines on offer that all comply with the Euro 6 regulations, with both diesel and petrol engines on offer that can be paired with an automatic or manual gearbox.
More details for the 2017 Leon will be announced in the near future. To stay up to date with the new model, contact your nearest JCT600 SEAT dealer or register your interest today.
