The new León FR 2.0 TFSI with DSG gearshift is now available across the SEAT sales network. This transmission set-up includes steering wheel mounted shift paddles for the first time on a SEAT model, adding a sporty feel to manual speed changes, as well as the comfort and safety of not having to release the steering wheel.
The sportiest model in the new generation line-up
The new León is here. The arrival of the second generation León sees SEAT launch the third model in its all-new product line-up following on from the Altea and Toledo. The characteristic traits of the brand’s new model image are plain to see in both the Altea and Toledo and now the new Leon. The SEAT Salsa concept car unveiled in 2000 has been the inspiration for the Spanish manufacturer in terms of styling ever since, turning it into automotive reality.
The London Motor Show, being held from 18 to 30 July, is the backdrop chosen by SEAT to unveil its most powerful car to date – the León Cupra. Its 240 hp signals a landmark in the history of the Spanish maker, and the presentation of this model also coincides with the celebration of the SEAT León’s sporting success, not only at the World Touring Car Championship, but also at the British Touring Car Championship, where SEAT leads both classifications.
