GENEVA SHOW: Seat confirms 99g/km Leon
03 March 2009
Seat has unveiled a concept of its Leon hatchback in Geneva that is capable of emissions of just 99g/km and economy of 74.3mpg.
Although it is only in concept from, it is anticipated that the car on display is very similar to the one that will head to showrooms, offering the same economy and emissions figures when it does.
It achieves the feat through a 1.6-litre commonrail diesel engine, and will be the first Seat to offer a stop-start system when it is released in 2010.
It will match the Volkswagen Golf Bluemotion, coming late this year, as the lowest-emitting car in the lower medium class, apart from Toyota's hybrid Prius at 89k/km.
