More ‘Sombrero time’ for the Seat Leon

Seat Leon now on sale in Mexico

The new Seat Leon will be basking in more sunshine as it has now been officially launched in Mexico. The five-door Leon will go on sale in Mexico in June, with the SC following towards the end of 2013. Both models will be built at the Barcelona Martorell production plant. In Mexico, Seat currently exports the three- and five-door versions of the Ibiza, the Altea XL and Altea Freetrack, the new Toledo and, to date, the second-generation Leon. The success of the Ibiza in Mexico is unprecedented, and Seat wants to repeat that success with the new Leon, more than 25,000 units of which have been sold in Europe in less than six months.

Edgar Estrada, head of Seat in Mexico said “we are delighted at the way the brand has been moving, we are confident that the strength of the new Leon will help us continue to grow in Mexico. Our commercial offer is renewed with the Leon, which enables enjoyment of the latest technology and offers great value for money.”

The new Seat Leon arrived in the UK earlier this year; this new model is a welcome boost to the market as it boasts a co2 rating of just 99g/km making it exempt from the annual vehicle excise duty plus the impressive 74.3mpg means there will be fewer trips to the fuel station. This third generation Seat Leon is stunning; it has been completely redesigned from the ground up and is packed with full high end technology.

Specification available for Seat Leon

The exterior of the new Seat Leon has been brought up to date with full LED headlamps and boasts a 380 litre boot which is approximately forty litres more than its predecessor, there is also increased legroom due to the wheelbase being slightly longer which really does make a difference. Every Leon has a colour touchscreen which incorporates radio controls, Bluetooth connectivity plus a driver drowsiness detection function and an automatic lane keeping assistant. The interior has a clear light and uncluttered look with an unconventional and elegant dashboard with a two tone design that makes it appear to float in mid-air.

Seat has offers on until the end of June and if you get your order in before the deadline you pay only £500 for the technology pack which is worth £1915 so you can enjoy the full LED headlights, DAB radio and a navigation system.
