4th generation Leon is completely connected, includes high spec safety features along with improved comfort and practicality

SEAT has come along way in the past decade and an indication of the progress made can be seen with the all-new SEAT Leon, which remains a core model for the brand in the Irish market. The all-new fourth generation Leon is available with traditional TSI and TDI engines as well as the new addition of a mild hybrid electric vehicle engine (eTSI), a first for the brand.

This latest Leon comes with a host of features as standard, such as 16” alloy wheels, an 8” media system and SEAT Connect. As well as this a number of safety items will also come as standard on the Leon range including adaptive cruise control, light assist (headbeam assist) and fatigue detection.

The all-new SEAT Leon uses the advanced MQB Evo platform as its foundation to maximise the key elements that make it one of the most practical options in the market. Inside, thanks to increased overall vehicle dimensions, all aspects have been designed to be ergonomically precise, increasing interior space for rear occupants, while load space is improved (for the Sportstourer version) over the previous generation, making it an even more practical choice.

Giving the design team greater flexibility, the Leon is now 4,368mm long (+86mm) and 1,456mm high (-3mm) in 5-door form and it has an increased wheelbase of 2,686mm, 50mm more than the previous generation vehicle- the latter increase has meant more room has been added to the interior of the car. The all-new SEAT Leon’s rear space has improved by 49mm, meaning occupants remain comfortable whether the journey is a short local hop or an adventure further afield.

The fourth generation of the SEAT Leon is the safest vehicle the brand has ever developed, thanks in particular, to the integration of a state-of-the-art suite of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), which includes, for example, predictive Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), Emergency Assist, and Side and Exit Assist, which combine to protect the vehicle and its occupants when driving or stationary.

The all-new SEAT Leon is the brand’s first fully connected car and will now offer connectivity with Full Link – Android Auto and also wireless access to Apple’s CarPlay and online infotainment and soon this new model will offer in car apps that expand and improve the customer’s driving experience. With the optional Connectivity Box with inductive charging that meets Qi standard protocols, users needn’t worry about losing power at crucial moments.

The all-new Leon boasts five engine options, providing plenty of choice for the SEAT customer. These options include two petrol engine choices in the 1.0 TSI 110hp and a 1.5 TSI 150hp; the two Diesel options include a 2.0 TDI 115hp and a 2.0 TDI 150hp DSG; and new to the range, the mild hybrid electric vehicle engine (eTSI) available in a 1.5 eTSI 150 DSG.
