Seat Leon: That costs the facelift


He is the VW Golf of Seat. Not only technically this applies to the Leon, but also by its importance in sales. No model of Spaniards is more popular in Germany. For this to remain, there is a facelift with a view to the year 2017. Now it is known what the reworked Leon will cost.

Subtle retouching and more technique
Radical changes in the optics, however, remain. Well, because the Leon design still looks handsome. Most changes to the body are recognizable only by the fans, the most noticeable is the larger radiator grille. As an option, Seat now offers LED headlights, but only for the higher equipment lines. The surcharge is between 990 and 1,190 euros. Other new conveniences such as traffic sign detection, a distance control or the new eight-inch touch screen and app integration also require the handle to the purse.

Basic version only one lock offer
The starting price of the Seat Leon remains unchanged: starting at 14,990 euros for the SC three-legged driver. With five doors 15,490 euros are required, for the Kombi ST already 16,640 euros. In return, you get the 1.2 TSI with 86 hp as well as the very bare basic equipment without names. There is neither radio nor air conditioning, these things can not be offered. Only the Leon "Reference" has both inclusive, but then costs as a three-door already 17.760 euro. A plus for the Reference: Several motors are available for selection.

New: The Leon Xcellence
The Variantend jungle is with the lifted Seat Leon very luxuriant. Let's take a look at interesting equipment and engines: "Style" as well as "FR" and "Xcellence" rank above the "Reference". The latter equipment is new and price-compatible with the FR. While FR should provide a sporty touch, the Xcellence shines in the truest sense of the word through more chrome. With the popular 150-hp diesel this means: Start as a five-door at 25.250 euros (style), 26.850 euros for FR respectively Xcellence. There is a change in the 1.6-liter entry-level diesel. It now offers 115 instead of previous 110 hp, which makes Seat with 200 Euro more honorable. So it is now starting at 22,250 euros.

Strong natural gas markup
If you want to save money without diesel, you can use the 1.0 TSI Ecomotive with 115 hp at least 19.990 Euro. Here, various elements are standard, which should reduce the consumption to 4.4 liters on average, such as special spoilers. The three cylinder, however, just as the Leon-Basismodell does not go into production until April 2017. For gas fans, Seat holds the 110 hp 1.4 TGI, but only as a five-door. Its price is at least 23,100 euros. The TSI Ecomotive is worth more than 2.000 Euro cheaper. Also the Leon X-Perience should not be forgotten: The rustic spoiled and 15 millimeters higher Kombi starts as 1.4 TSI with 125 HP at 24.590 euro. Who should miss the super strong Cupra: These variants will be presented in early 2017.

Pre-facelift for price-conscious
You see, the new Leon price list is almost ready for everyone. Our tip: From January 2017 comes the "new" model in the Seat car house. Anyone who has not defined an ultimate wish combination can help dealers to reduce inventories and day approvals. This saves the customer money, but he does not get an outdated car, because Seat has changed visually and especially with the engines not too much at the Leon.
