All New Seat Leon ST Estate

All New Seat Leon ST Estate

An estate body style has been added to the Seat Leon line-up for the first time.

Seat’s NEW Leon ST will hit the showrooms in January 2014 after it has its world premiere at the September Frankfurt Motor Show.

This will be the 3rd vehicle in the Seat Leon ST line-up after its 3 & 5 models were launched. These 3 versions replace what was just ONE model from the old line-up with Seat aiming their ST pricing arrow to be a an increased cost of not more than approx. £1000 over and above the same model in a 5 door version.

Sharing its wheel base with the 5 door hatch model but having a slightly longer overhang of an additional 27cm gives the ST an increased boot space of 587 litres (1470 litres with rear seats folded flat)

These capacities are slightly less than the VW Golf Estate with which the ST shares its chassis but the actual reasoning for the decreased space is that the Seat St comes in a much sleeker sportier look which causes that small difference. Also the ST has a twin floor boot with quick folding rear seats, if you were to fold the front passenger seat down the load length is overall increased now to 2621mm.

Engine wise the Seat ST’s most worthy version will likely be its 1.6TDi 108bhp model, with CO2 levels of just 88 g/km and an extra urban fuel consumption of up to a massive 85.6 mpg this car will be considered economical by even the most frugal of engines. The other diesel versions will be the 1.6TDi 89bhp or the 2.0TDi which comes in both 148bhp and 181bhp engines.

One extra you might consider is the addition of the Adaptive suspension with its DCC (Dynamic Chassis Control) which will be introduced across the whole range along with the Progressive Steering that Seat has already revealed will be available.

If your preference is for petrol then you will have the choice for either the 1.2TFSi (84bhp or 104bhp versions) a 1.4TFSi (120bhp or 138bhp) or the top of the range 1.8TFSi engine packing 178bhp which comes in the FR model.
