Seat has tweaked its Leon range, introducing a simpler model line-up.
The car maker has dropped SE, Sport and Cupra models, while FR trim has been realigned and a new FR+ trim has been introduced.
The FR models are available with either 1.4 TSI petrol or 138bhp 2.0 TDI diesel engines: the same choice as the previous Sport models. Prices are around £600 more than Sport models, but extra standard equipment has been added.
Standard equipment for FR models includes:
FR front and rear bumpers
twin chrome exhaust tailpipes
silver-painted door mirrors
LED rear light clusters
sports seats and steering wheel
rear parking sensors
automatic headlights and wipers
The new FR+ models are available with either a 208bhp 2.0 TSI petrol engine, or a 168bhp 2.0 TDI diesel engine: the same choice as the previous FR models. There’s a £1070 premium over FR models, but there’s additional standard equipment worth £2465.
Standard equipment for FR+ models includes:
touch-screen media and sat-nav system
Xenon headlights with adaptive lighting system
front parking sensors
There’s no equivalent for the previous Cupra model, which had a 237bhp 2.0-litre turbo petrol engine. The Cupra R – which has a 261bhp engine – continues, but its price has been cut by £10 to £25,995. Prices for the rest of the range are unchanged.
The updated Seat Leon range is on sale now.
