Seat has now expanded this with four new grades – including an entry-level SE model, an aggressive-looking FR Sport grade and two top-spec trims, Xcellence and Xcellence Lux.
Despite being the lowest spec model, the SE still comes with keyless start, LED headlights, cruise control and an 8.25-inch media screen with smartphone mirroring capability.
SE Dynamic (already available) then adds a digital cockpit, front and rear parking sensors and a larger 10.25-inch media system, with FR bringing sportier looks thanks to 17-inch alloy wheels, a revised bodykit and lowered suspension.
The new FR Sport grade features 18-inch alloy wheels, a black roof lining and heated front seats. Xcellence takes a more comfortable stance with its 17-inch wheels and microsuede upholstery, with flagship ‘Lux’ models coming with leather upholstery and adaptive cruise control.
A new 108bhp 1.0-litre petrol engine joins the range as the cheapest and most efficient non-diesel option (returning up to 52.3mpg, with CO2 emissions of 123g/km), while mild-hybrid technology has been introduced on the 148bhp 1.5-litre petrol engine as well.
The addition of lower trims means the Seat Leon now starts from £19,855 – undercutting all its VW Group stablemates. Order books for the revised range are now open.
