SEAT Invests £650m In New Leon Production

The platform also offers greater flexibility, enabling production of the three versions of the Leon as well as Altea variants all on the same line. SEAT has also adapted its manufacturing processes to ensure the highest levels of precision and quality, by the use of latest-generation technologies such as laser welding and measurement, as well as hot stamping.

The new Leon is the first all-new production vehicle to display SEAT's latest design language, and signals an enormous step forward for the brand, equipped with a host of ground-breaking technology for improved safety and enhanced connectivity; it is the first in its class to offer full LED headlights as an option.

It is 90 kilograms lighter and 52 millimetres shorter than its predecessor, improving fuel consumption and handling, yet it has more interior passenger space and luggage capacity. Every new Leon from launch is equipped with Start/Stop technology for greater efficiency - on average it consumes 15% less fuel than the previous generation.
