Leon Lai isn’t the only good-looking figure sporting the name ‘Leon’. Presenting the all-new 2013 Seat Leon, a stylish five-door hatchback that is set to make its world premiere at the 2012 Paris Motor Show. The new Leon is the second vehicle from the Volkswagen Group that is built upon the new modular transverse matrix (MBQ) platform after the Audi A3.

The styling of the car was previewed by the IBE coupe concept that was displayed at the Paris Motor Show two years ago. The sportier FR trim is distinguished by modified front and rear bumpers, alloy wheels and FR badging on both the exterior and interior.

The Spanish hatchback has a sharp looking front fascia that comes with a pair Audi-inspired LED head lights. The rear brake lights benefit from LED technology as well and they certainly would not look out of place on a more expensive Audi. The “Leon” name is proudly displayed at the centre of the boot. Overall, the new car features an edgier design than the softer and more rounded outgoing model.

On the inside, the Mk3 Leon borrowed some parts from its higher end cousin, the Audi A3, with the most prominent part being the instrument panel. The dashboard has a clear and uncluttered layout that would not confuse a new driver. The FR model comes with a flat-bottomed steering wheel plus red trimmings all around.

No information has been released on the available power trains, but one can assume that they will be similar to those offered on the new A3 and the upcoming VW Golf Mk7.

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.
