New Seat Leon confirmed for Paris debut image

The Spanish based automaker Seat has recently announced that the new Leon generation will be officially revealed this week, during the 2012 Paris Motor Show.

After leaking a couple of months ago and with the carmaker releasing a few official images with the model, the new Leon generation is being placed into the spotlights once again, this time with Seat announcing that the model will be officially presented to the public at the 2012 Paris Motor Show this week. According to the car manufacturer, the five-door family hatchback deliveries will begin in March 2013, which means that the model will be known as the 2014 Seat Leon.

The new generation of the Seat Leon is being developed on the MQB platform, just like almost every vehicle made by Volkswagen these days, and the model might get a similar engine lineup as the new Audi A3, including petrol and diesel units, along with a plug-in hybrid which might make its way onto the market in 2014. The 2013 Seat Leon will be officially presented to the public on Thursday, during the 2012 Paris Motor Show. More details on the new Leon will be announced at the French automotive event this week.
