This is the third generation of SEAT Leon, made in Spain and developed on the Volkswagen Group’s MQB platform, the same as Volkswagen Golf and many other Volkswagen Group vehicles. Leon is one of the few compact cars of its time that still has a 2-litre turbo diesel engine under the hood, many of them having up to 1.6-litre turbo diesel engines. The car featured here is the low power variant of the 2.0 TDI engine (150 hp). The high power version offers 184 hp. This generation of SEAT Leon marked a milestone in automotive world, being the first compact car to feature full LED headlights.
