New Seat Leon goes on sale with prices starting at less than £20,000

That money buys you the 10.25-inch digital instrument cluster and satellite navigation, while the touchscreen grows to 10 inches. Parking sensors are fitted in the front and rear bumpers, while the SE’s 16-inch alloys are swapped with larger 17-inch rims. That means there are some sporty bumpers, dual exhaust pipes and suspension that drops the ride height by 15 mm all mark out the top-end model. Inside, there’s a three-zone air conditioning system, not to mention a wireless charging pad and contrast stitching on the upholstery. As with the remainder of the Leon range, the basic £23,185 FR comes with the 113 bhp 1-litre petrol engine and a manual gearbox. “This all-new generation Leon takes the strengths of the previous award winner to new heights, with design, technology, efficient engines and a generous equipment list in addition to the great value for money we’ve maintained.
