SEAT announced the official pricing of the new three-door SC, revealed last month at Geneva, in the British market. The handsome looking SC starts at £15,370 for the base 1.2 liter model, and goes up to £22,335 for the FR version equipped with a 2.0 liter TDI and a DSG transmission.
The Leon SC is sportier than the five-door model, but it just as practical. The car also benefits from generous standard equipment, as even the base ‘S’ model comes with air conditioning, Bluetooth phone preparation and audio streaming, a six-speaker mp3-compatible stereo including colour touchscreen display, seven airbags, anti-lock braking, traction control and, exclusively to the SC, sports-shaped front seats.
The mid-range ‘SE’ trim level adds more luxury with leather wrapped steering wheel and gear knob, ambient interior lighting, chrome dashboard detailing, front fog lights with cornering function, cruise control, 16-inch alloy wheels, SEAT’s XDS electronic differential lock system, hill hold control and again, sports-shaped front seats.
Finally, the range-topping FR offers 17-inch alloy wheels, redesigned front and rear bumpers, twin chrome exhaust pipes, dark tinted windows, unique FR sports seats, a flat-bottomed leather steering wheel, dual-zone climate control, LED tail lights, and sports suspension, lowered by 15 mm.
SEAT Leon SC can be obtained with a range of diesel and petrol engines, including a 1.6 liter and a 2.0 liter TDi both capable of returning nearly 70 mpg, and a 1.2, a 1.4 and a 1.8 TSI petrol engines.
