The front half looks clean and attractive, and I like the glass house. Not a fan of the diverging side crease line and the rear end needed more imagination, particularly the tailights which look like the designers couldn't be bothered.

The interior doesn't look much chop either.

A pleasant and nice looking car, but not very appealing. I guess the reason is that it's just an Ibiza on steroids, hence the feeling of "nothing to see here folks, move on". The only part really new is the interior, but it's not well designed IMO and the quality doesn't seem to be there either.

BUT...are those full LED headlights?!?!?

It looks great and the interior is a massive leap forward for Seat.

as for its dash... well, I like it simply because it's not "usual&dull VW product"! I agree that, if made from "wrong" materials, it might look cheap but, lets wait for more&better pictures to judge that... for now, I'd say just that I'm happy that it carries at least a trace of "romanic flair" in generally "germanic" appearance...
i think it looks like A3... in a good way... so very nice.

But I have to imagine interior without big screen and manual controls... it wont look good... way too simple.

Still, overall pretty good.

Yeah i saw that there is a new logo as well, but nothing too radical. Just a small refresh.

I just read at km77.com that it will be launched with a 2.0TDi with 150hp. As far as i remember, this power output was never offered on the VAG 2.0TDi, am i right? If that's the case, i am very surprised that VAG allows SEAT to debut an engine, traditionally SEAT has been the last brand of the group to abandon the older engines.

EDIT: read here http://www.km77.com/00/seat/leon/201...eon-precio.asp, some nice technical info available (in spanish only)

Itīs funny to see that everytime Seat gets a new logo, itīs just the old one with one less line. It started with 5 lines, not is only had 1.

BTW, are we gonna see a 3 dr version with this new one?

Well, I wouldn't say that the 150hp version must be that much of a new engine. Mostly probably ECU programming, either detuned from the 170hp verison or an updated 140hp engine.

I remember that Seat had more powerfull TDI in the Mk. 1 Leon as well, and VW cold also use the Leon as testbed for an updated TDI (probably Euro6 without ad blue?) before releasing it to the more image concious brands (which, hoenstly, includes every other VAG brand incl. Skoda right now)...
