SEAT announces prices for Leon SC

SEAT has announced that its three-door Leon SC model will be priced from £15,370 – £300 less than the five-door equivalent. Buyers can place an order from April 15, with first deliveries due in the UK from early July.

Trim levels echo those of the five-door model – the range kicks off with the ‘S’ 1.2 TSI with 105PS and is topped by a 2.0-litre TDI diesel with 150PS in FR trim, priced at £22,335 before any options boxes are ticked. Mid-spec SE models are priced from £16,490.

Specifications are similar to the five-door, too, and so all models get Bluetooth for phone and audio connectivity, touchscreen display and hill-hold control, but with the addition of sports front seats which are unique to SC models.

Moving up from S to SE trim adds a leather wrapped wheel and gear knob, front fog lights with cornering function, cruise control and 16-inch alloy wheels. The range-topping FR trim level is only available with the more powerful engines and adds selectable driving modes, sportier exterior and interior styling, dual-zone climate control, LED tail lights and sports suspension.
