Starting this month the León ranges has been extended with the 125 hp 1.4 TSI engine. This engine fills the gap between the 102 hp 1.6 and the 160 hp 1.8 TSI versions in the petrol range.
The arrival of the 1.4 TSI engine increases the León range, which offers 14 different versions – 8 equipped with a petrol engine and 6 with a diesel engine – some of which feature a DSG gearbox.
Available with the Stylance and Sport-up trim levels, the 1.4 TSI makes the León range more uniform. Despite its smaller displacement, it can be found between the 1.6 and the 1.8 TSI in terms of performance and consumption levels.
This León delivers excellent performance, with a top speed of 197 km/h, 0 to 100 km/h acceleration of 9.8 seconds and amazing 80 to 120 km/h acceleration in fifth gear of only 10.9 seconds. Also noteworthy are its moderate fuel consumption of 6.4 litres and its 154 g/km of emissions.
Thanks to its manual six-speed gearbox and excellent 200 Nm at 1,500 rpm engine torque, driving is made comfortable and fuel efficient. The body has undergone no modifications and remains the same throughout the range.
The 125 hp León 1.4 TSI offers an excellent trade-off with suitable performance, high engine torque and moderate fuel consumption thanks to its direct injection engine.
The 1.4 TSI featuring the Stylance trim includes volumetric alarm, ESP with Driving Steering Recommendation, EBA emergency brake assistance, tyre pressure warning, 16 inch 7-spoke alloy wheels, CD MP3 radio with aux-in connection and 8 speakers, foglamps, dual zone climatiser, rear power windows, door mirrors with electric parking position, leather steering wheel with audio controls, leather gear knob, cruise control, trip computer and coming and leaving home function, among others.
Additional features on the Sport-up trim version include 225/45 tyres on 17 inch wheels, sports suspension, sports seats and a specific interior finish.
