The SEAT Leon ST – or Sports Tourer – is an estate car that is designed for comfort, capacity and flexibility. With a large boot and expandable cargo space, it’s the perfect car for taking the family on holiday. The Leon ST is available in six trim levels – S, SE TECHNOLOGY, SE DYNAMIC TECHNOLOGY, FR TECHNOLOGY, XCELLENCE TECHNOLOGY and CUPRA 300.
With the SEAT Leon ST, it’s not just about functionality and space. The streamlined body features smooth contours, and lines that give it a sophisticated and very modern look.
Two black grilles appear above and below a body-coloured bumper; the upper grille and full LED headlights are chrome-trimmed. The profile of the SEAT Leon ST benefits from 15-inch urban steel wheels – with different options available as you go up through the trims.
There is a pleasing consistency to the cabin with grey-scale upholstery that is subtle and stylish. Aluminium trim brings a sheen, while sports-style dials really stand out on the simple yet elegant dashboard. There’s an appealing slickness to the instrument panel with controls laid out clearly and intuitively. While new SEAT Leon ST has ample space to comfortably seat five people, it also has one of the biggest boots available to a family estate car. A roomy 577-litre capacity is large enough for a big shopping trip or lots of luggage. However, by simply pulling a handle, seats fold forward to create a voluminous 1,407 litres.
A five-inch touchscreen provides a range of functions, including radio and navigation. You can observe the output from a rear-view camera which allows you to back into spaces with ease. With ultrasonic sensors positioned on the rear bumper, an alert sounds if an otherwise undetected obstacle appears. Bluetooth® audio streaming enables you to play your favourite tunes on board from any compatible media device.
The SEAT Leon ST comes with a five-star Euro NCAP safety rating, the highest possible award from an independent body. ISOFIX child seat anchors feature in the second row and help keep the little ones safe and secure.
A Tiredness Recognition System monitors hand-to-steering wheel activity in order to detect drowsiness. If you begin to lose focus, an alert will sound. Multi-Collision Braking is a system that monitors the road ahead and warns you of an imminent collision. In such a case, the system will automatically apply the brakes if you are unable to.
A 1.6-litre 108bhp engine with five-speed manual transmission is capable of a maximum torque of 250Nm. A top speed of 121mph is achievable too and, despite the potency of the SEAT Leon ST, emissions are as low as 102g/km of CO2. Furthermore, it’s an economic car to run; the ST can deliver as much as 72.4mpg.
