2019 SEAT Leon Styling
Details about the 2019 SEAT Leon are presently a bit thin on the ground, but it’s likely that the styling will not be too various to the existing car. At the front, the brand-new car will still have the sharp styling that sets the Leon apart from its Volkswagen Golf cousin, which shares the same parts. The top grille is most likely to be larger and shallower, while the lower grille gets an angular design with shaped air vents. Around the back, the wheel arches are expected to be wider and the full-LED brakelights slimmer. Stylish FR and Cupra models will feature larger exhaust pipes and more aggressive bumpers.

Like the styling, expect the interior to be really just like the present car. SEAT’s design will make the interior sportier than the Golf, however it must feel a lot more contemporary and interesting than the car on-sale now.

2019 SEAT Leon Passenger Space and Boot Space
The 2019 Leon will be larger than the present car, suggesting it’ll have more leg and headroom– although the present model isn’t really lacking in these departments. Boot space should likewise be enhanced over the 380 litres offered at the minute, and must have a more practical shape and less of a load lip to haul heavy products over.
2019 SEAT Leon Engines and Driving
The engine range will include 1.0 and 1.5-litre fuels pinched from the Golf line-up, along with a 1.6-litre diesel. The current 2.0-litre diesel is likely to remain– it has the most power of any Leon excluding the Cupra, and is good for hauling. It’s unlikely that the 180hp 1.8-litre petrol will be offered in 2019 due to the fact that it hasn’t proven to be a popular option to date.
Rather, there’ll be a plug-in hybrid version offered from launch that’ll utilize the Golf GTE’s underpinnings, and in time there might be a mild-hybrid model with a 48V electrical system to make it possible for the engine to turn off when you’re drifting.
