The new Leon 1.0 Litre TSI petrol engine is an economic and compact engine, with the lowest fuel capacity available in the SC, 5 door and ST Estate range of models. Perhaps surprisingly, this smooth and unassuming engine delivers an impressive 110 horsepower, allowing the 5 door hatchback to reach speeds of up to 119 mph in test conditions. When you consider the relative size of the Leon compared with other vehicles with similar engine specifications, it speaks volumes about the power of the innovative TSI technology used in the SEAT Leon petrol engines.
Seat’s TSI (Turbo Stratified Injection) engine technology combines turbochargers with petrol direct injection to provide high torque and smooth acceleration, with little noise on the road. The compact design means that the engine weighs less than other 1.0 Litre petrol engines, which improves the car’s acceleration and reduces fuel consumption. This convenient feature is expected to be particularly useful when overtaking, or when driving up a steep incline.
The fuel economy is good with the 1.0 TSI engine, at around 58mpg, and the lower engine power means that the Leon is the cheapest car to insure in the entire range. The engine is the most affordable of all the engine options in the new 2021 Seat Leon range; a 5 door Leon hatchback in SE trim will cost around £20,000 on-the-road. For a the higher FR spec with the same engine, you can expect to pay around £23,000.
