All new Seat Leon ST Estate
First ever Leon Estate Car
Seat have unveiled the all new Seat Leon ST Estate, it is based on the third generation Leon and boasts stunning looks and outstanding practicality.
Jürgen Stackmann, President and CEO of SEAT S.A said “nobody has to choose anymore between sporty and practical. The new Leon ST offers both. With its sporty look, its surprisingly high utility and its state-of-the-art technology, the Leon ST defines a new standard in the compact estate car class at a very fair price. Like the already highly successful Leon and Leon SC, the new ST is the perfect representative of SEAT’s brand values.”
This new estate car also offers a range of highly efficient engines that all have start/stop and energy recovery systems. An impressive choice of engine is the 1.2 TSI 105 PS engine returning 57.6 mpg, while the state-of-the-art 1.4 TSI 140 PS runs it very close, with a 53.3 mpg average figure. At the top of the petrol line-up is the 1.8 TSI engine, available in FR trim only, delivering 180 PS and 250 Nm of torque. The entry level diesel model is the 1.6 TDI it manages to emit just 106 g/km CO2 and returns 68.9 mpg and the sporty 2.0 TDI achieves a fantastic 65.7mpg so there quite a choice to think over.
The estate Leon ST features the same sharp and precise edges that feature across the Leon range, the elegance of the Leon ST is further accentuated by the optional full-LED headlights in combination with LED rear lights. It is approximately 4.54 metres long and boasts generous load space. The rear seat backrests are extremely easy to fold down from the luggage compartment, while the double floor makes the boot very easy to load and unload.
State-of-the-art assistance and infotainment systems
When it comes to driver assistance and infotainment solutions, the new Seat Leon ST is fully up-to-the-minute. Safety technology includes Multi-Collision Brake, Tiredness Recognition and Lane Assist, while the Seat Easy Connect infotainment operating system is an intuitive way of controlling entertainment and communication. Easy Connect includes a standard colour touch-screen and full Bluetooth phone and music connectivity.
Other hi-tech options will be available including Adaptive Cruise Control, Adaptive Chassis Control damper adjustment and progressive steering; the optional Dynamic Pack includes DCC and Progressive Steering, which reduces steering effort when parking, while at the same time improving handling with more direct steering characteristics on winding roads.
