The front is as we all feared, much worse. It seems those leaked bumpers were accurate. I prefer the old one

I like the new cabin, electric handbrake, 8" screen. Carplay looks nice, my 2016 Full Link from Samsung is only okay and I've to use Hangouts to get it to read and reply to text messages.

Rear LEDs are nice, front headlights look different as well, slightly.

Me too. Those creases and whacking great plastic grille make it look like the Xperience model. The new fogs look like an aftermarket add-on.

I also don't want push button start or an electric handbrake. Those new rear clusters are the only real improvement I can see. :shrug:

not too bad.... just don't like the idea of the electronic handbrake, but I suppose its something that is becoming common in cars, so i'll need to get used to it....

Guess the rear looks more Audi than ever with those lights but I like them.

Good to see they've lightened the interior by bringing the colour down around the centre console. So this will probably be gloss black on the Cupra 300.

Bumpers will grow on me as they always do.

Spec changes look to be right on the money. Plenty people on here wanted higher performance engines and specs but not the badges and suspension of the FR when it launched.

Seat are on a roll at the moment.

What does the xcellence actually include? Plenty of flash words about how it's more comfort and luxury but can't seem to find any actual specifics?? Don't like the front, don't like electric handbrakes but the rear and multi coloured interior lights are a nice touch

Don't like the front end changes, the new nav system will be a nice upgrade and the centre console may actually be able to fit a phone in now but apart from that nothing major that stands out as an "ooooh wish I had that in mine" feature.

SEAT are giving some good options in their range though, they've found the niches and moving into them quite shewdly I think.

The impression I get is all that info including prices won't be announced until November when the price list goes out.

The Italian news reports mention an additional €300-500 of value in the various cars. What used to be optional now included but they don't mention what items and which models.
