Seat to launch brand new Leon in Paris

Seat has unveiled the initial images and details of its all-new Leon, which is set to be the star attraction at the firm's Paris Motor Show stand.

The new Leon has a similar chassis to its predecessors but is 90kg lighter, which helps to improve both performance and emissions, and it is set to become Seat's most technologically advanced car yet.

All models will be fitted with a colour touch-screen interface and benefit from an extremely advanced driver drowsiness-detection function and an automatic lane-keeping assistant, as well as full-LED headlights.

The Spanish car maker wants the all-new Leon to suit "every taste and requirement", so the initial five-door Leon will be followed by a three-door 'SC' and an estate 'ST' version.

SE and FR specifications will also be offered, with more reserved and sportier styling respectively. An Ecomotive version emitting just 99g/km of CO2 has been confirmed as well.

Seat is providing a choice of petrol and diesel engines, which apparently offer much-improved emission levels but do not do so at the expense of power. The all-important prices are yet to be confirmed but car finance options are sure to be available.
