2017 SEAT Leon Facelift Prices Revealed in Spain

We've already talked quite a bit about the mid-life facelift of the SEAT Leon. For the most part, changes are small, but they should help the Spanish compact continue to grow.

It was previously announced that the Leon facelift would become available on in January or February, depending on the market. However, the domestic market of Spain has revealed prices this week. Orders are already being supported by the local dealers, which can sell three body styles, five trim levels, and ten powertrain configurations. Just like Volkswagen, SEAT is getting rid of some trim levels, such as Style Connect Plus, Reference Plus and FR Advanced.

The three body styles are the 3-door SC, the regular 5-door, and the ST wagon. The X-Perience is considered a trim level, but we haven't seen any photos of the 2017 version yet. Oddly, the 5-door and the wagon are cheaper at 19,080 euros or 20,080 euros, respectively, while the SC starts at 21,200 euros. That's because it misses out on the base Reference trim level and the 1.2 TSI, opting to go straight to the 1.4 TSI 125 PS.

SEAT is also placing high emphasis on the 1.4 TGI engine. Sure, every other compact car made by Volkswagen group offers this turbocharged unit that runs on compressed natural gas, but here, it's almost available on every trim, suggesting it's popular in Spain.

If you are interested, you can check out the full price list attached below and draw your own conclusions. Ours are that the 1-liter 3-cylinder turbo still isn't available and that it's worth going for the top FR or the new Xcellence trim levels.

Powertrain changes are minimal. For example, there's a new 1.6 TDI with 115 PS instead of 110 PS, but we can't tell you if it's more efficient yet. You can have that from 21,360 as a hatchback.

The 7-speed DSG gearbox that was supposed to be available with the 2.0 TDI... isn't. But what's strange is that the Leon X-Perience 1.8 TSI 180 PS has switched from DSG6 to DSG7.
