The Seat Leon has an impressive range the total includes 19 different versions with nine different engines, five petrol and four Diesel, four different gearboxes (five and six-speed manual, and six and seven-speed DSG), and three trim levels, Reference, Style and Sport, in addition to a new entry version and the sportiest FR model and the Seat Leon Cupra 237bhp version.
The non-turbo 1.4 and 1.6 petrol engines reportedly have to be worked hard and become noisy as a result, the diesels also tend to be loud. The Seat Leon 2.0 engine is impressively smooth and quiet.
The sportiest versions of the new Seat León 2009 feature the Sport and FR trim levels. Sport adds dark glass, sport seats with specific upholstery, sport suspension, 17" 'Aroa' alloy rims and 225/45 tyres to the already complete equipment line-up of the Style version, while the new Seat León FR builds on Sport with XDS, three-spoke leather multi-function steering wheel with the FR logo, leather gear knob with the FR logo, 2 additional speakers, volumetric alarm with back-up battery, 17" 'Albea' alloy rims, 225/45 tyres and silver colour door mirrors. However this car is well-equipped car even in its most basic form.
The Seat Leon is priced at entry level from £12,990 reaching approximately £19,990 and insurance groups range from five to seventeen.
