New Leon's in the driving SEAT
S EAT gave potential customers a quick preview of the new Leon hatchback before deliveries begin next month and customers were putting down deposits even before they have driven the car.
Dave Barlow, managing director of Stoke SEAT, says he is delighted with the amount of interest it generated when a left hand drive five-door version was on static display for one day at its Trentham Lakes dealership on Monday.
He says: "We had a fantastic response, better than we had hoped for. The car was only here for a day and could not be driven but we have had lots of people already placing orders and I know more will follow when the UK-spec cars get here next month. Given that it was only a showroom taster rather than a full launch I could not be happier with the response.''
The first cars arriving in March will be the five-door versions with the three door one due in early summer and an estate by the end of the year.

SEAT has spent around £650 million on its development and it is the latest model in an extraordinary wave of new products which has seen SEAT unveil a new car every three months last year with the Mii city car, the revised Ibiza, the new Toledo, and now the third generation of the Leon.
It showcases SEAT's latest styling and will have ground-breaking technology for improved safety and enhanced connectivity and it is the first in its class to offer full LED headlights as an option.
The Leon is 90 kilograms lighter and 52 millimetres shorter than its predecessor, improving fuel consumption and handling, yet it has more interior passenger space and luggage capacity. Every new Leon from launch will have Start/Stop technology for greater efficiency and on average it drinks 15 per cent less fuel than the previous generation.
Dave adds: "This is a very important car for us and judging from the response on Monday it's going to be a great success. SEAT has a fresh, young model range and this addition will boost its image.''
