A smaller engine is also available for the FR, with the 1.4 liter TSI, developing 125 PS, which can be connected only to a manual transmission, while the 2.0 liter TDI diesel is also available with DSG, besides the manual gearbox.
The new FR has redesigned front and rear bumpers, a twin chrome exhaust pipe, silver door mirrors, LED rear light clusters, rear parking sensors, rain-sensing wipers, automatic headlights, auto-dimming rear-view mirror and FR sports seats and steering wheel.
While the FR hot-hatch is available with all these “goodies”, the FR+ comes with 18 inch Ibera alloys, the Seat Media System 2.2 with sat-nav, five-inch color touch screen and dynamic route guidance, Bluetooth audio streaming and SD card slot, Bluetooth phone connection, DAB radio, bi-xenon headlights with Adaptive Front-lightning System and front parking sensors.
According to the British Division of Seat, the extra equipment ordered separately will get 2.465 pounds out of your pocket, while on the new Leon FR+ this costs just 1.070 pounds.
The Leon FR can be ordered at 18.205 pounds for the 1.4 TSI version, and the price goes up to 22.615 pounds for the FR+ variant powered by the 2.0 TDI CR DSG engine. The improved Cupra R is also available for 25.995 pounds.
