The new SEAT Leon ST demonstrates that thrilling sporting character and exceptional everyday usability do not have to be mutually exclusive. The third member of the Leon family combines the young, dynamic design and the precise handling of its siblings with an amazing degree of utility. Like every Leon, the ST displays an impressive level of craftsmanship and premium materials.

The luggage space of the 4,535 mm compact estate car offers excellent variability and the very best functionality down to the last detail. It has a load capacity of 587 litres, rising to as much as 1,470 litres with the rear seat backrests folded – meaning that even the big items of everyday life are best accommodated in the Leon ST.

The Leon ST is a strategic model in the enlargement of the Leon family so as to increase SEAT sales in the company fleet and family vehicle channels. In Western Europe the sub-segment of the new Leon ST accounts for some 500,000 vehicles per year and is a key player in markets such as Germany, United Kingdom, Italy, Austria and Switzerland. Within this category, fleets account for an average of 60% of sales, rising to as much as 74% in Germany.

The new Leon ST will initially reach dealerships in Germany, Spain, Austria, Switzerland, Netherlands and Portugal next November, to be followed by other markets later on. With this launch, the Leon family will continue to grow after the presentation of the five- and three-door bodyworks.
