Fuel Type

The Seat Leon is the Spanish maker’s answer to the VW Golf. In fact, because Seat is owned by Volkswagen, the Leon basically is a Golf in Mediterranean clothing, so you get the same great range of engines and brilliant German build quality, but outside and inside the Leon has a younger, more stylish vibe. Leons are also generally more affordable than their German cousins, or offer more equipment for similar money. Bagging five out of five stars from none other than What Car? magazine isn’t too shabby either. 

You’ll find two generations of nearly new Seat Leon available for sale at Motorpoint – later versions of the model that launched in 2012 (and was usefully facelifted in 2017), and the all-new car that arrived in 2020.

What Engine Is In A Seat Leon?

The 2012-2020 Seat Leon is available with a 1.0-litre three-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine, while four-cylinder petrols come in 1.2, 1.4, 1.5 and 1.8-litre flavours. Later examples are more likely to be fitted with the 1.0 or 1.5-litre engine, however, and the 1.5 in particular strikes a great balance between performance and frugality. 

The Cupra hot hatch is fitted with a punchy 2.0-litre turbo engine, making it a great alternative to the Golf GTI. If you prefer maximising mpg to minimising your 0-62mph time, try either of the turbodiesels, which are available in either 1.6 or 2.0-litre capacities. 

For the 2020-onwards Leon, Seat slimmed down the core petrol line-up to either the 1.0-litre or 1.5-litre petrol, both of which can also be had with the eTSI mild hybrid system for a useful mpg boost. However, there’s also a 1.4-litre plug-in hybrid that can run on pure electric power alone for short periods, making it a good alternative to the 2.0-litre TDI diesel. The Cupra continues with a high-performance 2.0-litre petrol engine. 

For both generations, either manual or DSG dual-clutch gearboxes are available. 

Seat Leon Bodystyles 

The 2012-2020 Seat Leon is offered with a choice of three- or five-door or estate bodystyles – the three-door was discontinued in 2018 because most buyers want the extra practicality of five doors, but its stylish looks and rarity mean it’s well worth snapping up if you rarely use the rear seats. 

The latest model is offered as a five-door hatchback or estate, with the estate also offered in X-perience trim – it gets the full crossover look with rugged black body cladding and raised suspension that’s bang on-trend. 

What Are The Seat Leon Trim Levels? 

You can buy a used Seat Leon in one of six different trim levels:

  • SE
  • SE Dynamic
  • FR
  • FR Sport
  • Xcellence
  • Xcellence Lux

SE gets the ball rolling with 16-inch alloys, LED front and rear lights, FR models introduce a sportier look (17-inch alloys for FR, 18s for the FR Sport, which also gets awesomely tactile microsuede trim), while Xcellence models take the Leon in a more luxurious direction, particularly the top-spec Xcellence Lux, which tops out with massive 20-inch alloys and supple leather trim. Meanwhile, the X-perience is a standalone crossover-like model available with the estate body, bringing black cladding, raised suspension and upgraded infotainment. 

Later examples of the first-generation Leon offered essentially the same line-up, if with a few differences in trim – particularly the FR Technology model outlined in the Technology section below.  

Seat Leon Technology

The 2012-2020 Seat Leon was offered with a minimum of a 5.0-inch infotainment screen, but look out for the upgraded 8.0-inch touchscreen fitted to higher-spec models. FR Technology models are a popular choice, with highlights including sat-nav, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto, rear parking sensors, cruise control and full LED headlights. 

The latest Leon is fitted with at least an 8.25-inch screen with DAB, Bluetooth, and Apple CarPlay/Android Auto, but go just one step up the ladder to SE Dynamic trim and you’ll be treated to a 10-inch touchscreen with navigation, plus a digital instrument display that replaces traditional analogue dials with a digital screen ahead of the steering wheel. It adds a handy multifunction steering wheel too.
