SEAT’S dynamic Leon FR – the 200 PS and 170 PS petrol and diesel hot hatches that sit just below the fire-breathing 240 PS Leon Cupra in the Spanish firm’s exciting five-door family hatch line-up – is now available with a smart new optional extra in the shape of bespoke leather seats.
The upgrade, available to order both on new cars and current-shape used Leons, includes a complete set (front and rear) of high quality, Italian leather-clad sports seats with colour panels on the seatback and squab, and contrasting stitching throughout.
The luxury accessory, supplied in association with aftermarket experts Auto-kit, also includes prominent FR badging. The effect leaves no one in any doubt that this is a seriously stylish, sporty machine. Colour choices include yellow – an ideal match with SEAT’s trademark Crono Yellow paint hue – red, light silver grey and classy, carbon fibre-esque black.
The seats, which naturally include side airbags identical to the standard-fit versions, have undergone rigorous testing and are safety certified by MIRA, the Motor Industry Research Association, having been assessed by VCA (the Vehicle Certification Agency).
Priced at £1,350 RRP, which includes full expert fitting at your local SEAT Dealer – or £1,500 RRP, to also add leather door panel inserts front and rear – the grippy, supportive and comfortable perches are part of a range of fashionable and exciting aftermarket accessories across the range of Spanish models.
Jim O’Donnell, SEAT UK’s Aftersales Marketing and Planning Manager, said of the new accessory choice: ‘We’re really pleased to be able to offer these new seats. They are of the highest quality, are backed by a full three-year warranty and, above all, they look and feel superb!’
