Seat has released a new image showing part of the back of the new Leon, the C-segment sedan coming next January 28. “The Leon has been designed by our team with the courage of simplicity and executed with strength and determination. Simplicity because we believe that most things can be said with just a few lines. Determination and strength because those are some of the attributes that make our cars recognisable and seducing at first glance”, said Alejandro Mesonero-Romanos, Seat design director.

The new Leon adds lighting systems that will make the dynamic, sporty and elegant compact car more desirable whether viewed from outside or from the comfort of the cabin. Back in 2012 when the third generation was presented, the Leon was one of the first car in its segment to feature the full LED technology.

Seat’s dedicated design and engineering teams have taken the lighting technology to the next level in the brand’s best-seller, to accentuate the all-new Leon’s bold new interior design language. Externally the next-generation Leon incorporates full LED technology; at the front this means dynamic headlights with a brightness and clarity that will illuminate even the darkest roads. At the rear we find the coast-to-coast lighting, already seen on some of the brand’s cars such as the electric el-Born and the Tarraco SUV, which consists of a single strip of LEDs that runs the entire width of the car.

“Advanced lighting technology is key in enhancing a vehicle’s design. In the new Leon, we have been able to use to great effect to empower its already strong character. Inside, its wraparound ambient light takes the new Leon yet to another level of funcionality and aesthetics”, said Alejandro Mesonero-Romanos, Seat design director.
