The new three-door version will be instrumental in increasing Leon sales since it will broaden SEAT's market coverage in the most popular segment in Europe and will satisfy the needs of new clients wishing for a sportier vehicle with top functionality. Before year's end SEAT will also launch the estate version of the Leon.
This morning SEAT President James Muir defined the Leon SC as a vehicle "designed to be the most beautiful car in its segment", adding that it will "bring a new generation of customers to SEAT". Muir underscored the excellent reception given the five-door Leon, unveiled at the last Paris motor show. "To date we have delivered nearly 10,600 vehicles, and currently have an order-bank of 15,000 units". Muir added that SEAT "is already seeing the first signs of the product offensive launched in 2012 paying off", and that "we face 2013 with the same energy, motivation and optimism to grow with the new products as well as increased presence in developing markets".
