SEAT has announced a couple of modifications to its Leon line-up. This mainly involves higher FR+ trim levels and updates to the racy FR models.
Two of the most popular models in the range ± the 2-litre TSI 208bhp and the 2-liter 168 bhp TDI - will from now on only be available with FR+ trim levels. The standard FR models will in future only be available with two engines: a 2-litre TDI pushing out 138 bhp and a 1.4 TSI petrol engine delivering 124bhp.
Although performance may be down for these models, they will still feature sporty styling. Visually there are a couple of differences when compared to the standard Leon models: more aggressive rear and front bumpers, LED rear lights and silver-painted door mirrors. They also come with sports seats as standard equipment, as well as automatic wipers and lights and rear-parking sensors.
On top of the new 18-inch alloy wheels, the FR+ range has even higher specifications: Front parking sensors, bi-xenon headlights, Bluetooth audio streaming, DAB radio and satellite navigation are all part of the deal. According to seat all these extra equipment cost the company £2€ 465, while the price of the car has only increased with £1€ 070.
This means that after these modifications the entry level FR 1.4 TSI model will now cost around of £18€ 205. The 2-litre 168 bhp TDI with its DSG gearbox will set you back a little more - £22€ 615 to be precise.
