2019 SEAT Leon
We have special renders of the SEAT Leon that’s most likely to be an advancement of the existing car. It is among six new models due within the next 18 months, following the effective launches of the Ateca, Ibiza and Arona.
2019 SEAT Leon Styling
Details about the 2019 SEAT Leon are currently a bit thin on the ground, but it’s likely that the styling will not be too different to the present car. At the front, the new car will still have the sharp styling that sets the Leon apart from its Volkswagen Golf cousin, which shares the same parts. The leading grille is likely to be larger and shallower, while the lower grille gets an angular design with sculpted air vents. Around the back, the wheel arches are anticipated to be larger and the full-LED brakelights slimmer. Sporty FR and Cupra models will feature bigger exhaust pipes and more aggressive bumpers.
2019 SEAT Leon Interior
Like the styling, expect the interior to be extremely much like the existing car. SEAT’s style will make the interior sportier than the Golf, however it must feel a lot more modern-day and interesting than the car on-sale now. That stated, a new and better touchscreen infotainment system will take pride of place to help the control panel look uncluttered and sophisticated.
2019 SEAT Leon Passenger Space and Boot Space
The 2019 Leon will be larger than the present car, suggesting it’ll have more leg and headroom– although the current model isn’t really lacking in these departments. Boot area need to likewise be enhanced over the 380 litres provided at the moment, and must have a more useful shape and less of a load lip to haul heavy items over.
2019 SEAT Leon Engines and Driving
The engine variety will consist of 1.0 and 1.5-litre fuels pinched from the Golf line-up, as well as a 1.6-litre diesel. The existing 2.0-litre diesel is most likely to remain– it has the most power of any Leon omitting the Cupra, and benefits towing. It’s not likely that the 180hp 1.8-litre fuel will be used in 2019 due to the fact that it hasn’t shown to be a popular option to date.
Rather, there’ll be a plug-in hybrid version readily available from launch that’ll use the Golf GTE’s foundations, and in time there might be a mild-hybrid model with a 48V electrical system to enable the engine to switch off when you’re cruising.
2019 SEAT Leon Price and Release Date
The new 2019 SEAT Leon is expected in showrooms before summer 2019, and will not stray too far from the prices of the existing model. Entry-level cars will start from around ₤ 18,000, increasing to around ₤ 32,000 for a scorching Cupra range-topper.
