PLUG-IN HY­BRID AND CUT­TING-EDGE TECH NEXT FOR THE LEON

Autocar - - NEWS -

Seat’s next-gen­er­a­tion Leon will take the big­gest step for­ward in the model’s his­tory, thanks to an ul­tra-high-tech cabin and the in­tro­duc­tion of a new elec­tri­fied vari­ant.

Due for launch in 2019, the Leon will get a more ad­vanced in­fo­tain­ment sys­tem, which can up­date maps, apps and func­tion­al­ity over the air, be­fore any of its Volk­swa­gen Group sta­ble­mates. A plug-in hy­brid ver­sion is aimed at kick-start­ing Seat’s elec­tri­fi­ca­tion am­bi­tions, which will gain pace when a stand-alone EV is launched in 2020.
