The Spanish SEAT Leon, like its predecessor, comes from the Volkswagen Group family, and its closest relatives are the Golf 8 and Octavia. At the same time, it is much larger than the new Golf: the difference in body length is 84 mm. Its centre-to-centre distance is 2,686 mm, as that of the Octavia. A standard trunk capacity of the Leon station wagon is 617 liters.

The SEAT Leon and Leon Sportstourer have received LED headlights with a memorable light “pattern”. It is included in the basic configuration of the models. However, matrix headlights will be available for an additional fee.

An engine range of the Leon is also borrowed from the eighth-generation Volkswagen Golf. The choice is presented by three — and four-cylinder turbo engines with a power output from 90 hp to 190 hp. There are petrol and diesel units with a volume of 1.0, 1.5 or 2.0 liters. They come with a seven-speed DSG or a new six-speed manual transmission. 4 Drive is only available for 150-hp 2.0 TDI versions. Petrol engines are available with a 48-volt motor.

The interior is identical to that of the Volkswagen Golf and Skoda Octavia. A 10.25-inch dashboard and an 8.25-inch infotainment center are standard. A 10-inch system is available as an option. An automatic transmission selector gave way to an electronic pad.

Besides, there are two special powertrains: a 1.5-liter 130-hp petrol TGI, and a 1.4-liter petrol engine with an electric motor (a total power output is 204 hp) for the Leon eHybrid. According to the manufacturer, the hybrid allows you to drive up to 60 km (WLTP) on a single charge.

The 2020 SEAT Leon will be available in the FR performance version for both body types. These hatchbacks and station wagons will have different bumpers, a redesigned radiator grille, 17-inch wheels and a sportier suspension. Later, the company should present the top-end Leon Cupra with a 245-hp powertrain. It is also possible that the high-end Leon X-Perience station wagon, like the VW Golf Alltrack and the Skoda Octavia Scout, will appear in the line-up. Prices for the new Leon have not yet been announced.
