Seat unveiled the Leon Ecomotive, a model powered by a 1.9 TDI engine that has a fuel consumption of 3.7 litres per 100 kilometers and a CO2 emission of 119 g/km.
The 1.9 TDI engine delivers 105 hp and a peak torque of 250 Nm at 1,900 rpm. The new model’s dynamic capability has even been improved, giving 1 km/h faster top speed, while 0 to 100 km/h acceleration is 0.4 seconds and 0 to 1,000 metre acceleration is 0.6 seconds faster - or 186 km/h, 10.9 seconds and 32.6 seconds respectively.
The new Leon has been fitted with a DPF particulate filter as standard equipment, filtering the typical (but small amount of) soot particles that most diesel engines produce. When left unfiltered, these particles remain in suspension and attract other harmful elements. Approximately 0.3% of diesel engine emissions are made up of gases such as carbon monoxide, hydrocarbons, sulphur dioxide, and nitric acids as well as soot.
The Leon Ecomotive comes standard with 195/65 tyres on 15 inch wheels or 205/55 tyres on 16 inch wheels.
It is available in two different trim levels: Reference and Stylance. A sport version will also be available: Sport Limited version builds on Reference with sport seats, leather steering wheel, 16 inch alloy wheels, foglamps and black door handles.
