SEAT Leon ST 1.6 TDI SE 105PS company car review
What is it?
The SEAT Leon ST is the third model in the smart Leon range. There’s the Leon five-door hatch, the Leon SC three-door, and now this – the ST estate model – which goes on sale this month (January 2014).
The Leon ST is available in three trims – S, SE and FR – and with a range of petrol and diesel engines, including the SEAT Leon ST car under review here – the 1.6 diesel SE model.
This has 105PS power and just 99g/km CO2 emissions for a company car tax banding of 15% in the 2014/15 tax year.
The car is a five-speed manual, although you can opt for the smooth-shifting DSG auto box. The latter means you don’t have to shift a stick to change gear but the penalty is slightly higher CO2 emissions (102g/km) and a 16% company car tax band.
P11D prices for the SEAT Leon ST range start at £16,620 for the 1.2 TSI S rising to £24,575 for the 2.0 TDI FR DSG auto. The Leon ST SE 1.6 TDI costs £19,440 –£825 more than the equivalent five door hatch.
