Review

Canny fleet buyers are making the most of an innovative showroom offer that adds almost £2,000 of equipment to a best-selling Seat model at no extra cost.

Almost every SE and FR version of the Leon sold is being specified with a technology pack option that features full-LED headlights, a breakthrough development making high-end illumination available for the first time in the C-segment.

I’ve already discovered the benefits of the new lamps on our long-term test car and the spread of light they produce is set to be an increasingly significant road safety factor as the nights grow longer.

Significantly superior to halogen bulbs and appreciably closer to natural daylight than xenon lamps, the LED units take much of the strain out of driving at night.

Along with the advanced lighting system comes satellite navigation and DAB digital radio – options adding up to £1,915 if bought separately – and Seat’s marketing men deserve a pat on the back for coming up with one of the best manufacturer promotions for some time.

Apart from adding value, the pack allows the fleet-specific SE to tick even more boxes for drivers who spend need to cope with multiple destinations.

Thanks to a big, high-resolution colour touchscreen, entering guidance details is quick and easy and clear route detailing responds to traffic conditions to come up with alternatives.

As a bonus, the system keeps watch on speed limits keeps and routing even includes supermarket, fuel station and hotel information.
