Although badged as the Leon Prototype, the carmaker says little will change when it is launched this winter.
While remaining a five-door, the second generation Leon has coupe-like lines and takes styling cues from Altea and Toledo. Seat has designed the interior configuration as a 2+2, combining quality and comfort with a sporty ambience.
Seat loaded the concept Leon with four on-board video cameras, two monitors and a DVD player, although such technology will be not standard on production models. This version hints at a Leon Cupra, as it is powered by a 200bhp 2.0-litre turbo FSI direct injection petrol, coupled to six-speed DSG paddle-shift transmission.
In 2004, Seat sold 9,846 Leons in the UK, almost a third of its total sales.
