THE all-new SEAT Leon is almost here. The brand’s latest vehicle arrives with a strong design evolution that keeps the soul that any Leon generation stands for. Its design philosophy connects perfectly with the values of the SEAT brand. The next-generation SEAT Leon stands out thanks to its improved overall dimensions, its more determined face, smoother lines and more sculpted rear end.
The basis for the vehicle’s strong design language is its advanced MQB Evo platform, which provided the flexibility and adaptability the design team required, while the all-new Leon’s increased dimensions for both the five-door and Sportstourer brought an improved sense of proportions to the next generation vehicle’s design.
“The all-new SEAT Leon has been designed by our team with the courage of simplicity and executed with strength and determination. Simplicity because at SEAT, we believe that most things can be said with just a few lines. Determination and strength because those are some of the attributes that make our cars recognisable and seducing at first glance”, said Alejandro Mesonero-Romanos, Director of Design at SEAT.
The surfaces of the model have evolved, with stronger shapes, giving a more elegant design treatment, with more changes and nuances in the colour and tone of the vehicle as the light hits the paintwork and shifts across the body. It means a vehicle with a greater three-dimensional approach and a layered, shifting aesthetic.
The rear character of all-new SEAT Leon is emphasised by the coast-to-coast LED lights. Both the lighting system and spoiler create lines that generate the notion of speed, even when not moving at all.
The design has been forged by the relationship between evolution and revolution, adding a new boldness, stronger character when on the road and refined when viewed from near or far.
The eagerly anticipated all-new Leon is already creating a buzz; it’ll be the brand’s safest, most connected vehicle and will benefit from electrified powertrains and an enticing, evolving design, but for now, you’ll have to keep your gaze on the rear design until the fourth-generation vehicle is unveiled in its entirety.
