New SEAT Leon SE Technology Business trim to appeal to fleet drivers
Dubbed SE Technology Business, the new model brings equipment aimed at fleet drivers, including a Technology Pack – comprising integrated satellite navigation, DAB audio system and LED headlights plus adaptive cruise control, rear parking sensors. It also brings the Convenience Pack consisting of automatic headlights, rain sensor and auto dimming rear view mirror.
The model also brings a BIK tax burden said to be among lowest of any business-specific models available. The entry-level five-door 1.6 TDI 108bhp version emits 99g/km of CO2 and achieves 74.3mpg on the combined cycle, giving it a BiK rating of 17% in five-door guise and 18% in ST format.
Meanwhile there’s also a 147bhp 2.0-litre turbo diesel version, which brings official combined fuel consumption of 68.9mpg and CO2 emissions of 106g/km (five-door and ST). In the five-door variant this model can reach 62 mph in 8.4 seconds.
And SEAT also says the model offers impressive predicted residual values.
SEAT UK head of fleet and business sales, Peter McDonald said: “The Leon has spearheaded our fleet sales drive over the last 18 months, but the SE Technology Business takes the model on to the next level when it comes to business use. An already remarkable package has been made even more compelling, especially when value is such a key part of the equation, which it inevitably is whether the choice is down to the user chooser or fleet manager.”
Initially available in estate form, the SEAT Leon ST SE Technology Business is priced from £20,650 OTR for the 1.6 TDI 108bhp. The order book for the five-door version will open in early 2016.
