With all the big changes in styling in the auto industry today, every carmakers is trying to build its models with the latest technology starting with the exterior and interior, and finishing with the engines under the hood.
Seat has also reconfigured its entire Leon lineup, especially since the model used to become old-fashioned. We are looking here at a mid-cycle facelift with a lot of new styling elements and fresh mills under the hood.
There are three versions to consider when talking about the Leon, the Reference, Style and FR trim versions, followed by a fourth, the new Xcellence.
The first three trims are now coming with full LED headlights and taillights, turn signals or fog lights, adding a host of features inside, including ambient lighting, new eight-inch touchscreen display for the infotainment system and so on. The technology comprises semi-autonomous driving with Adaptive Cruise Control, Traffic Jam Assist or Lane Assist.
On the other hand, the newly-introduced Xcellence trim is standing out from the crowd with new front and rear bumpers with different chromes, LED multi-color ambient colour inside, standard keyless entry and so on.
In the engine department, all versions received three additional engines, such as the 1.0-liter three-cylinder gasoline mill in the entry-level, with 115 horsepower, closely followed by a 1.6-liter turbodiesel with 115 horsepower. The top of the line version is also equipped with a 2.0-liter TDI with a freshly introduced seven-speed DSG and all-wheel drive setup.
