Seat has been finalizing development of the next-generation Seat Leon. The model is an European best-seller. The latest spy shots demonstrate a prototype on the Nurburgring race track.
The 2020 Seat Leon’s camouflage begins to gradually shank off, revealing the design. We can see the exterior differs from that of the sibling VW Golf 8 and is closer to the Tarraco SUV.
The vehicle features a smaller hood, less geometric headlamps, a ‘mouth’ lengthwise the front bumper instead of previous separate 3 grilles; a sloping roof, a sporty sloped trunk lid, wraparound 3D taillights, door mirrors like on the Cupra Formentor.
The new Seat Leon is built on the improved MQB platform and has a bit longer wheelbase. Inside we’ll find and a fully new dashboard layout, a tablet-style infotainment system and a sharp steering wheel.
The motor range will likely include 1.0-, 1.5- and 2.0-liter TSIs and TDIs producing 115,150 and 190hp. A hybrid version can come too, less powerful than the 245 HP Cupra.
