EXTREME: Super-green Seat Leon Ecomotive
Order books are now open for the new Leon Ecomotive, billed by Seat as their ‘most extreme environmental performer ever’.
Priced from £19,360, the 1.6litre diesel vehicle emits a tax-free 87g/km of CO2, while enjoying a consumption figure of 85.6mpg.
Available in all three body styles – SC, five-door and ST – first deliveries of the Leon Ecomotive are set for January 2014.
Steve Mirfin, Leon Product Manager at Seat UK, said: “This Leon Ecomotive really moves the game forward for us.
“Not only is it a lot more efficient than the outgoing car, it’s one of the most efficient medium-sized cars on the market and offers outstanding fuel economy.
“We benchmarked the car against the most popular models in the segment to make sure we’re right at the cutting edge on real-world fuel economy, but also on value, performance and quality.
“And with the Ecomotive available in all three Leon body styles, its appeal extends to a huge customer base – not least the fleet market, where practicality and running costs are paramount.”
Standard equipment on the Leon Ecomotive includes 16inch alloy wheels, front fog lights, cruise control, leather steering wheel and gear knob, air conditioning, electric windows, Bluetooth and Seat Easy Connect.
