Seat has officially unveiled the all-new Leon. The compact model comes with major exterior modifications, improved interior and modern engines.

Developed and built in Martorell, Spain, the new Leon is an exterior evolution of the old car. The compact hachback borrows some exterior lines we already have seen on the Tarraco or Cupra Formentor. The front of the car has a new grille, modified headlights and an improved spoiler. On the back there is continous stop light which connects the two LED classic bulbs.

The car is longer by 86 mm, but narrower by 16 mm. The break variant gains 93 mm.
