We have unique 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 successful launches of the Ateca, Ibiza and Arona.
2019 SEAT Leon Styling
Information about the 2019 SEAT Leon are presently a bit thin on the ground, however it’s most likely that the styling will not be too different to the existing 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 very same parts. The leading grille is likely to be larger and shallower, while the lower grille gets an angular style with shaped 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 larger exhaust pipes and more aggressive bumpers.
2019 SEAT Leon Interior
Like the styling, anticipate the interior to be extremely just like the present car. SEAT’s design will make the interior sportier than the Golf, but it should feel a lot more modern and interesting than the car on-sale now. That said, a new and enhanced touchscreen infotainment system will take pride of place to help the dashboard appearance uncluttered and sophisticated.
2019 SEAT Leon Passenger Space and Boot Space
The 2019 Leon will be larger than the existing car, recommending it’ll have more leg and headroom– although the current model isn’t lacking in these departments. Boot area should likewise be enhanced over the 380 litres provided at the moment, and should have a more practical shape and less of a load lip to haul heavy products over.
2019 SEAT Leon Engines and Driving
The engine range will consist of 1.0 and 1.5-litre gases pinched from the Golf line-up, along with a 1.6-litre diesel. The existing 2.0-litre diesel is most likely to remain– it has the most power of any Leon excluding the Cupra, and is good for hauling. It’s not likely that the 180hp 1.8-litre petrol will be provided in 2019 due to the fact that it hasn’t shown to be a popular choice to this day.
Rather, there’ll be a plug-in hybrid version readily available from launch that’ll utilize the Golf GTE’s underpinnings, and in time there could be a mild-hybrid model with a 48V electrical system to make it possible for the engine to switch off when you’re coasting.
2019 SEAT Leon Price and Release Date
The brand-new 2019 SEAT Leon is anticipated in showrooms prior to summer season 2019, and will not stray too far from the costs of the present model. Entry-level cars will start from around ₤ 18,000, rising to around ₤ 32,000 for a scorching Cupra range-topper.
