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.

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.

This same model has received the largest residual value uplift versus the previous model, increasing by £1,700. Across the whole range, the SEAT Leon will, on average, retain 40 per cent of its value over this same period of time.

Customers can choose from three distinct trims (SE, SE Dynamic and FR) and five power outputs (115PS 1.0 3-cylinder TSI manual; 130PS and 150PS 1.5 TSI manual; 150PS 1.5 eTSI MHEV DSG; and 115PS 2.0 TDI manual) available to order from today.

The new SEAT Leon eTSI, featuring mild hybrid technology, mates 48-volt mild-hybrid technology to the combustion engine allowing engine-shut off coasting as well as transient torque assistance.

Richard Harrison, Managing Director, SEAT UK, commented: “The Leon has been a huge success for SEAT both globally and in the UK. This all-new generation Leon takes the strengths of the previous award winner to new heights, with design, technology, efficient engines and a generous equipment list in addition to the great value for money we’ve maintained. This combination makes new Leon both an emotional and rational purchase, whether it’s a private or fleet buyer.”

As part of SEAT’s easymove strategy, customers need only choose the trim level, engine and colour on the online configurator – each has its own unique equipment to make it stand out and each comes with metallic paint as standard.

The new SEAT Leon mixes an abundance of standard technology and options so no matter which of the trims is picked, the vehicle will offer everything the driver and passengers need.

All vehicles in the range (SE) benefit from ‘Kessy Go’ keyless start, 2 x USB points in the front, LED headlight technology with automatic high beam, electric and heated side mirrors, electronic parking brake, an eight-inch infotainment system, cloth upholstery, leather steering wheel and gear stick, and SEAT Connect technology as standard. The vehicle rides on Design 16-inch alloy wheels.

SE Dynamic upgrades the infotainment to the SEAT Digital Cockpit with Navi, complete with 10-inch infotainment screen and 10.25-inch digital driver binnacle, Park Assist (front and rear sensors), tinted rear side windows, as well as larger Dynamic 17-inch alloy wheels.

The sportier FR trim level adds a host of additional elements both inside and out, on top of the SE Dynamic trim.

Sporty front and rear bumpers, Dynamic 17-inch alloy wheels, dual exhaust pipes and a unique suspension set-up (15mm lower ride height than other trims) ensure FR models stand out from the crowd visually and acoustically.

Inside the cabin, FR includes contrast stitching, a leather multifunction steering wheel, three-zone air conditioning, wireless charging tray in the front and two additional USB points in the rear.

The FR trim also brings full-LED technology to the rear of the vehicle including the coast-to-coast light and LED dynamic indicators (front and rear), and illuminated front aluminium door plates.

Customers can option an electric panoramic sunroof and either a fixed or electric towing hook on all trims.

Seven colours are available on Leon: two solid (Candy White and Pure Red) and five metallic (Nevada White, Midnight Black, Desire Red, Mystery Blue and Magnetic Grey).

The all-new SEAT Leon is the latest vehicle in this lineage – adding connectivity, electrified powertrains, automated safety systems – designed, developed and built at SEAT’s facilities in Martorell, Barcelona.
