Engines are powerful as well as efficient so you enjoy them
Seat Leon a well-known family hatch has got a number of changes after many years. All the upgrades are to appeal to buyers and to compete in a tougher segment of vehicles. Now there is new 1.6 litre diesel engine and turbocharged petrol motor of 1.0 litre.
Apart from these inductions of new fuel burners, there are reliable safety features and latest technology specifications inside the cabin. That is why you can call it a complete overhaul. Two different body styles have been offered five-door and three-door.
In fact, it is the third generation of the automobile and you will find great changes when put it in comparison with the predecessor. Particularly engines are not only more powerful but also efficient so you would find another hot hatch getting to list of top rivals.
This would also provide the required underpinning for the carmaker to introduce a range of super-mini with four-by-four drive opportunity.
Ride quality and handling areas also get improved
Cabins of both body styles have become spacious due to smarter bonnet section and other measures taken for providing more space for passengers. Ride quality and handling get improved with these tweaks.
Front row area is roomy for adults as plenty of legroom and headroom is available for the occupants of seats. They also find good small pockets to hold different items. Under armrest, there is also a place to put things.
Front door bins, cup holders, and glove box are also evidence of practicality of space. Wireless phone charging is also present in the list of optional features that will also hold mobile intact even if you drive it hard.
Rear seats are for three but they have to squeeze and not good when you are going on a long route. For two adults rear row is also comfortable though one of the rivals offer more than this.
1.6 litre diesel Seat Leon could be the best choice for UK buyers
In UK market 1.6 litre diesel Seat Leon is expected to be the most sold of the range. Its fuel average is remarkable and you will find it good for persistent use but it lacks the punch that excites most young buyers.
The entry-level 1.2 litre petrol is also good for daily short routes and on motorways. Furthermore, it is more affordable than any other. If you go for turbo petrol 1.0 litre then you will have even quicker and frugal one.
However, among petrol engines, 1.4 litre TSI is the best with two power variants 123bhp or 148bhp. It is intelligent to save fuel when cruising along.
Engines are good and suspension ensures ride comfort
Suspension of a vehicle is very much responsible for the comfort of riders and as you move up in this range, suspension setup gets altered. Other than standard buyers can have SE and FR technology trims.
With powerful engines, the sophisticated rear suspension has been offered to enjoy ride alike. Body control and handling levels are also good throughout this range of the car. Steering precision allows you to enjoy driving this elegant family car.
