We have special renders of the SEAT Leon that’s likely to be an advancement of the existing car. It’s one of 6 brand-new models due within the next 18 months, following the successful 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 most likely that the styling will not be too different to the existing car. At the front, the brand-new car will still have the sharp styling that sets the Leon apart from its Volkswagen Golf cousin, which shares the exact same parts. The leading grille is most likely to be broader and shallower, while the lower grille gets an angular design with sculpted air vents. Around the back, the wheel arches are anticipated to be broader and the full-LED brakelights slimmer. Stylish FR and Cupra models will feature bigger exhaust pipelines and more aggressive bumpers.
2019 SEAT Leon Interior
Like the styling, expect the interior to be really just like the present car. SEAT’s design will make the interior sportier than the Golf, but it ought to feel a lot more modern and intriguing than the car on-sale now. That stated, a new and improved touchscreen infotainment system will take pride of place to help the dashboard look uncluttered and stylish.
2019 SEAT Leon Passenger Space and Boot Space
The 2019 Leon will be larger than the existing car, suggesting it’ll have more leg and headroom– although the current model isn’t really lacking in these departments. Boot space must likewise be enhanced over the 380 litres provided at the moment, and must have a more practical shape and less of a load lip to transport heavy products 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, in addition to a 1.6-litre diesel. The present 2.0-litre diesel is likely to remain– it has the most power of any Leon omitting the Cupra, and is good for towing. It’s unlikely that the 180hp 1.8-litre gas will be provided in 2019 since it hasn’t shown to be a popular choice to date.
Instead, there’ll be a plug-in hybrid version readily available from launch that’ll use the Golf GTE’s foundations, and in time there could be a mild-hybrid model with a 48V electrical system to make it possible for the engine to turn off when you’re drifting.
2019 SEAT Leon Price and Release Date
The new 2019 SEAT Leon is expected in showrooms prior to summertime 2019, and won’t wander off too far from the costs of the present model. Entry-level cars will start from around ₤ 18,000, increasing to around ₤ 32,000 for a scorching Cupra range-topper.
