The Seat Leon 1.8 TSI engine is included as an option in the sportiest model of 2020 Leon’s range: the FR trim. This powerful 4 cylinder engine really packs a punch, and delivers an astonishing 180 PS and 250Nm of torque, combining perfectly with the lean and agile chassis design of the FR model. When the SC chassis is combined with this engine, it can achieve speeds of up to 139 mph on the test track, justifying its reputation as a high performance Sports Coupe.
The 1.8 Litre TSI engine can be combined with either a six-speed manual or seven-speed DSG-auto gearbox, both of which perform well in the FR trim with SEAT’s Drive Profile system. When the Sports mode is selected on this system, the throttle response is improved and the engine sounds increase, giving an authentic sports car feel.
Despite its forceful torque, the 2020 1.8 Litre petrol engine returns a respectable fuel economy of around 48 combined mpg with a manual gearbox, and slightly higher with the DSG automatic dual-clutch transmission. This ensures that the acceleration feels smooth and powerful, even with a heavy load in the vehicle.
The recommended on the road price for a standard 5 door SEAT Leon in FR trim and 1.8 Litre TSI engine is around £23,000 with a manual gearbox, and £24,400 with the dual clutch DSG-automatic transmission. You can expect to pay slightly more than this if you opt for the larger ST Estate version, and around £500 less for the equivalent 3 door Sport Coupe (SC).
