SEAT Leon gets bigger

SEAT Leon ST main

We’re big fans here at The Engine Room Show of the SEAT Leon, mainly because it looks great and doesn’t cost anywhere near to what a Golf costs. Now there’s another model to get to choose from – the ST. Normally we’d laugh at calling an estate car a ‘Sports Tourer’, but those stylish people at SEAT have made even this muy practical car looks pretty darn good.

The sensible choice is the 105hp 1.6-litre TDI engine which is frugal and clean – it emits just 99g/km of CO2 meaning it’s cheap to tax too. It comes in a choice of five-speed manual of the rather excellent DSG automatic gearbox. You can pick from three different trim levels; S, SE and FR – the latter being the best and sportiest looking one to go for.

And if you’re feeling very flush, a 184hp 2.0-litre TDI in FR trim (aka mega) is available at a price of €29,930. SEAT is also now offering the Leon ST with a four-wheel drive system called 4Drive, which can be ordered on diesel-engined cars.
