The SEAT Leon ST (Sports Tourer) is the first estate vehicle in the Leon line, and as such, shows a remarkable amount of innovation. Building on the success of the other vehicles in the SEAT Leon family, the Leon ST adds higher levels of interior space to the mix.
The strong and sturdy look of the Leon ST is the visual signature of the Leon line, with its streamlined angles forming a greater sense of aerodynamics, enabling more precise levels of handling. Black roof rails are unique to the Leon ST in the line; other features include the 15-inch steel wheels, the halogen daytime running lights, and the door mirrors that feature integrated LED indicators.
Inside, the primary focus of the Leon ST is the space available. Initially, the boot contains 587 litres; using SEAT's Easy Rear Seat-back Release mechanism, this expands to an impressive 1,470 litres. A chrome loading sill is also available, contributing to ease of use alongside the double boot floor design. The boot has a wide opening aperture, making it even easier to move objects and equipment in and out of the space.
The front passenger seat is also able to be folded down, allowing for transport of particularly long items as well. Technological features include air conditioning, audio and phone controls mounted on the steering wheel, and an MP3-compatible CD Player with FM/AM radio for on-board entertainment.
Motorists can choose between petrol or diesel engines for the Leon ST, all available as four-cylinder models with further choice for five, six or seven-speed gearboxes in manual or automatic. Overall, the Leon ST can reach a top speed of 142mph, with 0-60mph acceleration speed of approximately seven seconds. Combined fuel consumption is 85.6mpg, and CO2 emissions are at just 87g/km.
The Leon ST has been awarded the five-star Euro NCAP safety award, providing it with appropriate recognition for its level of safety features. Airbags are situated throughout the cabin to protect the driver and all passengers, and Electronic Stability Control (ESC) with Emergency Brake Assist (EBA) is also installed. The driver's seat is height-adjustable, and the steering wheel is height and reach-adjustable.
Families will appreciate the ISOFIX tether points on the outer rear seats, allowing for the simple installation of child safety seats.
