The new fourth-generation Seat Leon is officially unveiled in Spain. Along with the five-door hatchback, the Leon ST wagon also debuted.
Seat Leon 2020 is built on the same MQB platform as the previous generation model. The hatchback has grown to 4368 mm in length and 1800 mm in width, but has become lower – 1448 mm. The wheelbase remains the same – 2686 mm.
The car retained the familiar silhouette, but its sidewalls became more prominent, and the wheel arches expanded. The front part with slanting diode headlights and a trapezoidal grille is made in the spirit of the Seat Tarraco crossover. Flashlights are stretched across the entire width of the body.
Inside, the Seat Leon 2020 has a virtual tidy and an enlarged touchscreen (its diagonal can be 8.25 or 10 inches). You can also notice the compact DSG robot selector, as on the Volkswagen Golf 8. The luggage compartment volume of the hatchback remained unchanged (380 l), but in the station wagon it grew to 617 l.
At first, the new Seat Leon will receive gasoline turbo engines with a volume of 1.0 liter (90 and 110 hp) and 1.5 liter (130 and 150 hp), as well as 2.0-liter turbodiesels with a capacity of 115 and 150 l from.
Gasoline engines can be supplemented with a 48-volt hybrid installation. There will also be a 204-horsepower rechargeable hybrid Seat Leon with a 1.4-liter turbo four and an electric motor. Until the Cupra version appears, it will be the most powerful in the lineup. In addition, such a Leon will be able to drive 50 km in electric mode.
