You can now order the new SEAT Leon Ecomotive which has gone on sale priced from £19,360, with first deliveries during January 2014.
The Leon Ecomotive is available in all three body formats, the ‘SC’, ‘five-door’ and ‘ST’ (estate).
On the combined cycle (NEDC figures) it is capable of 85.6 mpg with CO2 emissions of 87 g/km, putting it in VED (car tax) band ‘A’ - which qualifies -0 road tax.SEAT Leon Ecomotive Engine
The Leon Ecomotive is powered by an 110PS 1.6-litre TDI diesel engine, linked to a six-speed manual gearbox. The gearbox ratios have been tweaked to reduced emission and improve fuel consumption, over the standard 1.6-litre TDI model fitted with a 5-speed manual gearbox plus you gain an extra 5PS thanks to rolling resistance tyres. There is body styling package comprising rear and side spoilers, and the suspension is lowered by 15 mm, while the radiator grille is unique to the Ecomotive. These changes help the Leon Ecomotive travel 11.3 miles further per gallon of fuel than the standard Leon 1.6 TDI, according to their respective combined consumption ratings.
As with the rest of the range it comes with an Energy Recovery System and a Start/Stop System, the former to capture and store brake energy otherwise lost as heat, which can be used to power electrical systems, and the latter to shut down the engine when the car is at a standstill, preserving fuel.SEAT Leon Ecomotive Equipment
