2021 SEAT Leon e-HYBRID FR 204PS DSG review

Following on from last month’s review of the MK4 Leon Estate FR 1.5 eTSI 150PS DSG we’ve had the more powerful e-Hybrid in which Jimbobcook has been testing.

As usual we go super in depth for the review aiming to tell you what it’s like to live with and more information than you’ll find elsewhere.

Sponsors latest deals and offers

We couldn’t afford to run the community if it weren’t for the generosity of our sponsors and after we reported last month three new sponsors joined us there have been several updates you may not want to miss.

Used SEAT of the month (Sponsored by Letchworth SEAT & CUPRA)

Leon CUPRA Lux Estate – less than 100 miles!

Packed with all the features the Lux Estate is an excellent example of sport meets practicality – with everything from heated buckets seats to a spacious boot it’s got enough room for the kitchen sink!

  • APAutostyling are asking for your thoughts on what products you would like to see made
    They are looking at induction filters and panel filters initially, and they would love to hear what you’d be interested in over on the forum
  • Would you be interested in an upgrading your Leon/Cupra Formentor steering wheel?
    East Yorkshire Retrofits are looking at upgrading your steering wheel with new DSG paddles with a built in drive mode button and even the option of a heated steering wheel. They have shared a picture of the development prototype and further details in their forum.

We’ve got another new sponsor on the way that didn’t quite make it into this month’s newsletter. Of course, we have many more sponsors offering discounts and more in the sponsor’s trading forum.

Media spotlight

This month’s been quite quiet in the members media gallery – where are your pictures people?!

Thankfully, member 300bhpdaily has saved the day with their self-titled photo “Old Bangers on my Drive”! Check out the other photos.

Registered members can upload their own photos to the media easily to share with others.
