Three-door version of new Seat Leon will show an aggressive, sporty stance

Article by Christian A., on July 25, 2012

The styling of the new Seat Leon three-door variant is “definitively coupé,” according to company heads. This car, which will be introduced in 2013, will have a front end that’s lower and wider than that of the five-door, lending a more aggressive, sporty stance. This three-door will be “very close” to the IBE concept seen at the 2010 Geneva show.

It will get a shorter wheelbase and a sweeping roofline, differentiating it from the five-door version. Meanwhile, the estate feature sporty, dramatic looks without compromising functionality. Seat sought to develop a premium-looking model. It used the BMW 3-series Touring mentioned as a reference point.

It’s expected that the three-door version will bear the SC (Sport Coupé) name while the estate version will get the ST (Sport Tourer) suffix applied to the equivalent models in the Ibiza range.

But this has yet to be confirmed. When it comes to upcoming Leon variants, a convertible is not probable. A compact MPV is also unlikely because of the Altea. However, Seat considers a crossover SUV inspired by the IBX concept to be something that would be good fit in its plan. [source: Autocar]
