The 2013 SEAT Leon arrived at the Paris Motor Show last year as the Spanish take in the VW Golf. And now the SEAT take on the Golf GTD is in the UK – the SEAT Leon FR 2.0 TDI 184 PS.

With a dose of Spanish flair making the SEAT a more flamboyant, and appealing, car than the Golf, it comes with the same 181bhp 2.0 litre diesel as the GTD, offering 0-62mph in 7.5 seconds and 67.3mpg.

Specification is good too, with LED tail lights, 17″ alloys, butch bumpers, tinted glass, twin chrome exhausts, sports suspension, Climate, Sports seats, SEAT Easy Connect Media and SEAT Driver Profile.

The new Leon FR also gets a multi-link suspension setup – instead of the normal torsion beam on more prosaic Leons – promising to sharper handling and the ability to better use the decent performance on offer.

The SEAT Leon FR 2.0 TDI 194 PS costs from £22,075 for the three-door SC and £22,375 for the five-door – both with a six-speed manual ‘box – and SEAT say the first UK deliveries will be in September.
