SEAT announces improved specification for Leon


SEAT has introduced a range of updates to its latest Leon for the 2022 model year. 

Applied to both hatchback and estate models, the changes introduce a new colour and engine while improving the standard specification.

Upgrades for the SE Dynamic trim level include a new centre armrest and three-zone climate control, as well as the inclusion of two USB-C sockets in the rear of the cabin. Across the Leon range, buyers of manual gearbox cars will be able to choose a new vegan leather for the shifter knob, while a new Asphalt Blue exterior colour has also been included. 

Buyers of Leon models in FR trim and above will now be able to choose a 2.0-litre petrol engine with 187bhp and an automatic gearbox. Seat has also lowered the entry price for this engine in the estate model to £29,890. 

All Leon plug-in hybrid models will also be accompanied by mode three charging cables as standard for both public and home chargers. 

Prices for the SEAT Leon hatch start from £20,405 with the 109bhp 1.0-litre engine, or £21,555 for the estate version. 

SEAT's sister firm CUPRA has also introduced a range of updates for its version of the Leon, bringing two new matte paint colours and a heated steering wheel for automatic gearbox cars. 

Prices for the CUPRA Leon start at £31,555 for a hatchback in VZ1 trim fitted with a 242bhp 2.0-litre petrol engine with an automatic gearbox. This rises to £40,535 for the VZ3 estate with the more powerful 306bhp engine.
