After a launch yesterday and a rush to get the all the New 2020 SEAT Leon details published, now the excitement has settled and our members have had time to digest, we thought we’d look at some of the reactions to the car as well as go in close with some of the photos.
The car had a fairly mixed reaction as do all-new car launches. The MK3 Leon saw Leon sales overtake the Ibiza as SEAT’s biggest selling car, however, there were similarly mixed reactions to that launch.
We’ve looked back at some of the initial reactions from community members when they first saw each generation of the Leon.
Reactions from MK1 Leon to MK2 Leon
“That is one fuugly car”Forum Member discussing the MK2 LEON
“WOW – looks like my next new car could be another SEAT after all..”Forum Member discussing the MK2 LEON
Reactions from MK2 Leon to MK3 Leon
“Makes my mk2 look refreshing and extends it’s shelf life for a further 5 years. No change for me in the next few years. “Forum Member discussing the MK3 LEON
“It looks lovely imo so much better than the fugly mk2 and they have really pulled the interior up in standards. “Forum Member Discussing the MK3 LEON
Reactions from MK3 Leon to MK4 Leon
“I Sorry to have to say it, but SEAT have ruined the LEON with the MK4. I thought the new Golf was horribly ugly, but this new Leon takes the crown.”Forum Member Discussing the MK4 LEON
“It looks quite attractive to me. I’ll admit my very first impression at the official presentation wasn’t great but after seeing several mini reviews I had a better look at it. I now find it quite striking. ”Forum Member Discussing the MK4 LEON
Let’s enjoy some pictures and video…
New cars will always prove divisive and SEAT and CUPRA fans are a passionate bunch in our experience. The proof will be in the pudding as they say when sales numbers start to rack up.
It is always good to see cars in the flesh, and of course, drive it to get a good idea of how you really feel about it. We will be test driving the new Leon and giving one of our in-depth reviews as soon as we can.
For now, let’s just look at the car again…
