Seat Leon Ecomotive in Frankfurt

Spanish carmaker SEAT is trying to expand its Leon family and it is doing it very well. They have developed two new models that have great efficiency, low emissions and great modest running costs. The Leon 1.6-liter TDI Ecomotive needs 3.2 liters of fuel per 100 km. These figures are available for three body styles: Leon, Leon ST and Leon SC. The other new model is a Seat Leon 1.4-liter TGI which has been engineered to work with compressed natural gas. The CO2 emission level reaches 94 g/km which go perfectly with the low fuel consumption.

Both models will be able to develop 119 PS. The new Leon Ecomotive is in fact one of the most fuel-efficient car available. The fuel consumption reaches 3.2 liters per 100 km and the CO2 emission level reaches 85 g/km. The Spanish specialists have offered a start-stop system, an energy regeneration system and a specially made 6-speed transmission. The tires provided have also low rolling resistance. The Ecomotive versions offered in all body styles. Under the hood we ca find a 1.4-liter direct injection, turbocharged engine that can only work on petrol or compressed natural gas which is quite impressive.

The TGI delivers 110 PS and 200 Nm of torque which enables the car to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 10.9 seconds. So that you know, in petrol mode, it provides an additional range of more than 900 km. In case you are interest to maybe purchase one, know that the Leon TGI is offered in the 5-door and in the estate version ST. Each will be available with Style or Reference equipment lines.
