Seat has launched the stylish new Leon ST, an advance on the popular hatchback SC model. What makes it so unique? The upright rear door and loner chassis  mean that the new ST is stylish yet even more practical than its predecessor. The fantastic adjustable floor in the boot means that the floor can be lifted to a higher position to give a flat space running from the tailgate to the front seats for a double boot capacity. For an additional £75 the front passenger seat can have a ‘fold flat’ facility to help with challenging loads. This unique feature will make the lives of many easier but also functions well on a daily basis with 55% more boot space than the hatchback SC.

There are a wide range of design choices and features which includes a variety of colours, wheel options, a panoramic sunroof and full LED headlights. These features come as standard but upgrading can include Adaptive Cruise Control to enable the driver to remain a safe distance from the car in front whilst maintaining a good speed. A sophisticated navigation system is also available with voice control and an easy connect feature for modern mobile phones to allow you to make phone calls with ease or listen to your favourite playlist.

Not only is the new Seat Leon ST bigger and more spacious than ever, a wide range of petrol and diesel options are also available. Seat have seemingly thought of everything and the ST is environmentally friendly with an average fuel consumption of 57.6mpg in the 1.2L and just 114g/km of CO2. If you’re after something a little more nippy the 1.6L claims an average of 72.4mpg and 102g/km of CO2. The great news is that the Ecomotive version of the 1.6 diesel will soon be available.

The new ST is available now with prices starting from £16,675. If you are looking for new car but are struggling to get car finance, Moneybarn may be the solution.
