The all-new Leon, the third model of SEAT's iconic hatchback, has had its most recent redesign by the SEAT engineers.
At 4.26 metres long, the new Leon is around five centimetres shorter than its predecessor, yet the wheelbase has increased by almost six centimetres. This enables short overhangs and enhances the strong visual presence of the wheels, while giving practical benefits such as improved interior space, particularly for rear seat passengers and the luggage compartment.
The angular line of the headlamps is a typical feature of the new SEAT design, while also being perfectly integrated into the Leon's sculptural form. The new headlamps give an unmistakable look to the front of the Leon. Additionally, the new Leon now has a distinctive signature appearance thanks to the fitment of LED daytime running lights.
The rear end of the new SEAT Leon has been intensively modelled; the large logo serves as an opener for the rear hatch. The slightly wedge-shaped rear light clusters underscore the breadth and are available in LED technology.
From the side, the new SEAT Leon looks like a precisely executed sculpture on wheels. The characteristic, unbroken Linea Dinamica' (Dynamic Line) runs rearwards over the wheel arches, reminiscent of the tension of a well-trained muscle.
A team of approximately 100 designers has been working tirelessly during the development phase of the new Leon to produce a striking exterior design and an interior which sets a benchmark for its functionality, as well as its quality of materials, fit and finish. The result is a car whose exterior design will attract the eye of the customer while the interior ambience will satisfy their rational needs.
