The New SEAT Leon – everything you need to know

The new SEAT Leon is now open for orders and available to test drive at Pulman SEAT. The all-new SEAT Leon brings with it a strong design evolution with a more determined face and smoother lines.


The all-new Leon lights the way in the segment with a range of innovative lighting technologies, including wraparound interior ambient light, rear coast-to-coast light, dynamic blinkers, full LED highlights and welcome lights.

The full LED technology used in the headlights improves vision, making even the darkest road visible to the driver. Incorporating the SEAT’s signature LED lighting design. The side mirrors include integrated LED indicators, and on vehicles with the full LED option including welcome lights you will see “Hola! Projected onto the ground as you activate the vehicle.

Inside the new Leon enhances the cabin experience with a full LED wraparound ambient lighting system. The lighting sweeps around the front of the cabin, from the front doors and across the top of the dashboard.


The all-new SEAT Leon is even more connected to the world giving the consumer greater opportunity to take their digital lives with them into the car. At the heart of the Leon’s system is its SEAT Digital Cockpit, which offers a 10” infotainment system with voice and gesture control.  

The Full Link Technology – Android Auto and wireless access to Apple’s CarPlay, allows users to connect their mobile devices to the vehicle’s infotainment system. The online connectivity unit also has an embedded SIM meaning that the all-new Leon will never lose its connection to the digital world. Offering additional digital products and services such as eCall service, which directly contacts the emergency services should an incident occur, sending invaluable data to the emergency services such as car location, engine type and number of passengers.

Downloading the SEAT Connect app, allows users to remotely access their vehicles data: driving data, parking position, vehicles status, including doors and lights. Set up speed and anti-theft alters.


There is a fantastic suite of engines available; petrol (TSI), diesel (TDI), mild-hybrid (eTSI) and Plug-in Hybrids (PHEV) which are coming soon.

The new Leon’s petrol engines offer direct-injection, turbocharged units and power outputs between 90PS and 190PS. The 1.0 litre TSI three-cylinder units produced 90PS and 110PS, the larger 1.5 litre TSI offers 130PS and 150PS. The 2.0 litre TSI linked to the dual-clutch transmission produces 190PS.

The diesel engines have two diesel options both with 2.0 litre TDI units. 115PS is available with a manual transmission only, while the 150PS is offered with the DSG as well. The Sportstourer is also available with 150PS unit for a DSG gearbox and 4Drive system. The TDI units introduce a new twin dosing SCR system that includes dual AdBlue injection to reduce significantly NOx emissions compared to previous Leon diesel engines.

The mild hybrid (mHEV) eTSI allows the car to provide even greater efficiency levels. This system is available with the 1.0 TSI 110PS and the 1.5 litre 150PS both in combination with the DSG transmission and a 48v mild-hybrid technology.

Plug-in hybrid expands SEATs electric car option. Joining a 1.4 litre TSI petrol engine electric motor, offering six-speed DSG transmission and producing 204PS of power. It will also allow drivers to use electric only mode which gives a range of up to 60km (WLTP) using just the energy stored in the vehicles battery.

Safety is also at the heart of all-new SEAT Leon. Integrating some of the most advanced driver assistance systems available, including predictive adaptive cruise control, emergency assist and travel assist, to make it the safest car the brand has ever made!

AutoCar – ‘2020 SEAT Leon launched with major tech gains and hybrid power. Leon offers more rear space, new infotainment and electrified petrol engines.’

Auto Express – ‘SEAT’s engineers have also worked hard to make the Leon’s ambient lighting more than just a personalisation gimmick.’

What Car? – ‘The SEAT Leon has steadily risen to be considered among the top tier of the family hatchback class.’

The Times – ‘unsurprisingly it shares a lot of the new technology and powertrains with its best-selling sister car, the VW Golf. But while the new Golf features subtle exterior design changes, the new Leon has a much bolder look when compared to the previous model.’
