Seat's new addition to the Leon range adds 18-inch Ibera alloys and front parking sensors

Seat has added to its Leon hatchback range with the announcement of the Seat Leon FR+.

The new model adds a layer of trim above that of the FR model, including 18-inch Ibera alloys, a five inch colour touch-screen sat-nav, DAB radio, Bluetooth, adaptive headlights and front parking sensors.

Powering the FR+ is either a 2.0-litre TSI unit with 208bhp or 2.0-litre TDI engine, which delivers 168bhp.

Standard trim consists of twin-chrome exhaust pipes, LED rear-lights, sports seats, rear parking sensors, rain-sensing wipers and automatic headlights.

Seat UK’s head of marketing Steve Robertson said: “The Leon FR has been an important mainstay of the Seat line-up for some time, so it clearly makes sense to maximise its appeal.”

As well as the Leon FR+, Seat has also upgraded the Leon Cupra R with Seat’s new Media System 2.2, Bluetooth, bi-xenon adaptive headlights and LED rear-light clusters.

Prices for the top-spec Seat Leon FR+ 2.0 TDI start from £22,615 – a £1070 premium over standard FR versions – with the improved Cupra R reduced by £10 over the outgoing car to £25,995.
