We have unique renders of the SEAT Leon that’s likely to be an advancement of the existing car. It is among six brand-new models due within the next 18 months, following the successful launches of the Ateca, Ibiza and Arona.
2019 SEAT Leon Styling
Details about the 2019 SEAT Leon are presently a bit thin on the ground, but it’s likely that the styling will not be too various to the current car. At the front, the brand-new car will still have the sharp styling that sets the Leon apart from its Volkswagen Golf cousin, which shares the exact same parts. The top grille is likely to be broader and shallower, while the lower grille gets an angular design with shaped air vents. Around the back, the wheel arches are anticipated to be wider and the full-LED brakelights slimmer. Sporty FR and Cupra models will feature bigger exhaust pipes and more aggressive bumpers.
2019 SEAT Leon Interior
Like the styling, expect the interior to be really much like the present car. SEAT’s style will make the interior sportier than the Golf, but it should feel a lot more contemporary and interesting than the car on-sale now. That stated, a new and improved touchscreen infotainment system will take pride of location to help the control panel look uncluttered and sophisticated.
2019 SEAT Leon Passenger Space and Boot Space
The 2019 Leon will be bigger than the current car, suggesting it’ll have more leg and headroom– although the existing model isn’t doing not have in these departments. Boot area must likewise be enhanced over the 380 litres used at the minute, and ought to have a more practical shape and less of a load lip to transport heavy items over.
2019 SEAT Leon Engines and Driving
The engine range will consist of 1.0 and 1.5-litre fuels pinched from the Golf line-up, as well as a 1.6-litre diesel. The current 2.0-litre diesel is most likely to stay– it has the most power of any Leon excluding the Cupra, and is good for pulling. It’s unlikely that the 180hp 1.8-litre petrol will be offered in 2019 because it hasn’t proven to be a popular option to date.
Rather, there’ll be a plug-in hybrid version available from launch that’ll utilize the Golf GTE’s underpinnings, and in time there might be a mild-hybrid model with a 48V electrical system to allow the engine to turn off when you’re cruising.
