Paris Motor Show LIVE: 2013 Seat Leon gets presented image

The Spanish based automaker Seat has brought the new generation of the Leon to this edition of the 2012 Paris Motor Show.

The 2013 Seat Leon is entering our news once again and after it has leaked just a few days ago, the model has been officially presented to the public during the 2012 Paris Motor Show. Seat says that the new Leon will be the first car in its segment to get the full LED headlamps. The all-new Seat Leon is riding on the same MQB platform as the 2013 Audi A3 and the Volkswagen Golf VII, and it’s about 90 kg (198 lbs) lighter than the outgoing model, translating into an improved fuel efficiency.

A variety of five engines with outputs ranging between 89 HP and 181 HP (135 kW) for the 2.0 liter TDI diesel will be available for the new Seat Leon and the most powerful petrol unit will be the 1.8 liter TSI with its 178 HP (132 kW). The transmissions available for the model will be the five-speed manual, the six-speed manual, the six-speed DSG and the seven-speed DSG. The new Leon is promising to burn an average of 3.8 liters of fuel every 100 km (61.8 mpg US / 74.3 mpg UK) and emit just 99 g/km of CO2.
