Seat updates Leon range

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.

FR trim
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

FR+ trim
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. Theres a 1070 premium over FR models, but theres additional standard equipment worth 2465.

Standard equipment for FR+ models includes:
• 18-inch alloys
• touch-screen media and sat-nav system
• DAB radio
• Bluetooth
• Xenon headlights with adaptive lighting system
• front parking sensors

Theres 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.
