The very first renderings of the Seat Leon Cabrio have recently hit the web and they might provide us with a first look in what might become a production version.
The Spanish based automaker Seat didn’t announce its plans to develop a convertible version of the new Leon generation but that doesn’t mean that chances of seeing it on the road are 0 percent. Considering the fact that Volkswagen is already offering a convertible version of the Golf, in R trim, we can say that there is a possibility on Seat developing such a model too. The two images posted below are renderings coming from theophiluschin.com.
As a quick reminder, the new generation of the Seat Leon has been officially presented to the public back in September 2012, during the Paris Motor Show. The model is riding on the MQB modular platform and it’s 90 kg lighter than the previous generation. A variety of five engines with outputs ranging between 89 HP and 181 HP (135 kW) for the 2.0 liter TDI diesel are 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 are the five-speed manual, the six-speed manual, the six-speed DSG and the seven-speed DSG.
