Seat Leon optional Technology Pack adds extra appeal

In return for this sum of money, Seat will add a collection of new technological luxuries to the exterior and interior of the hatchback model.

Together all the equipment is worth over £1,900, yet Seat have chosen to sell the Technology Pack for considerably less than it’s worth to make it more accessible to customers.

Potential customers will have to act swiftly though as the Technology Pack is only available on Leon models ordered in the SE and FR specification up until 31 March 2013.

For the exterior the new Technology pack will introduce full LED headlamps to the face of the latest Seat Leon hatchback.

The Leon full-LED light unit comprises six LED modules for the main low beam headlamp and a further three for the high beam function. The Seat’s daytime running light uses two LEDs plus a light guide to achieve its distinctive strip effect, while the turn indicators use nine.

With the Technology Pack the rear taillights of the Seat Leon are also updated with new LED brake lights which react quicker than the standard bulbs linked to the brake pedal.

Not only should the new LED lights give the Seat Leon a more premium look, they’ll also benefit the car in terms of fuel efficiency and CO2 emissions in the long run.

Inside the updated Leon the Technology Pack adds the Media System Plus infotainment system as standard for the hatchback. This feature adds a 5.8-inch colour touch screen inside the Ford Focus-rival, which can be used to control the system’s various features.

These features include a satellite navigation system which can be operated with either the touchscreen or through voice control.

This piece of kit joins alongside a DAB digital radio to make the Technology Pack an even more appealing add-on for 2013 Seat Leon customers.

The Seat Leon is available right now starting from £15,670 at Perrys Seat Dealership in Aylesbury.

First deliveries of the Seat Leon begin in March 2013, with the five-door hatchback arriving in three different trim levels in total, with the basic S trim joining the SE and FR models.

The 2013 Seat Leon shares the same platform with the new Volkswagen Golf. Not only is it lighter and more agile than the previous Leon, but the hatchback also boasts a maximum five-star safety rating from Euro NCAP.
