Seat Leon SC

This year, at the 2013 edition of the Geneva Motor Show, Spanish carmaker Seat will officially reveal the new Seat Leon SC. Until then, wee had the opportunity to see the model as the manufacturer has decided to present the 3-door SC ahead in a few photos. The decision came rapidly as just two days ago we were shown a teaser photo of what the Seat Leon SC would be. To make a better idea, know that in comparison with the stock model, the SC variant has a 35 mm shorter wheelbase, measuring only 2600 mm and a 4.23 meter overall length. The model has incredible looks and a very functional interior, the perfect combination for an excellent workmanship. The specialists have also used premium materials and all occupants have a lot of room feeling like in the 5-door variant of the Seat Leon.

When it comes to technology, know that the engineers have provided state-of-the-art infotainment, intelligent driver assistance systems, the latest generation of engines, systematic weight reduction measures and a chassis that provided the perfect balance between comfortable day-to-day uses. In terms of power trains, know that all feature direct injection with turbocharging offering a lot of efficiency. For example the TSI and TDI units range from 1.2-liter and 2.0-liter and are capable of generating from 100 PS to 184 PS. The cleanest of them all is the 16-liter TDI that can emit less than 100 g/km of CO2.

For the British market the Spanish manufacturer Seat has offered the model in S, SE and FR specifications. This SC variant is actually the sportiest and most emotional member of the Leon family, declared the Vice President of Research and Development, Dr. Matthias Rabe. If you see it from the side, the model displays a balance relationship between metal and glass surfaces - vertically, this is around one-third glass to two-thirds body surface. Depending on the engine, power transmission is handled by a manual 5- or 6-speed transmission, or by the compact and lightweight DSG dual-clutch automatic gearbox.
