Seat Leon FR

2008 Seat Leon FR – Available With Bespoke Leather Seats


SEAT’S dynamic Leon FR – the 200 PS and 170 PS petrol and diesel hot hatches that sit just below the fire-breathing 240 PS Leon Cupra in the Spanish firm’s exciting five-door family hatch line-up – is available with a smart new optional extra in the shape of bespoke leather seats.

The upgrade, available to order both on new cars and current-shape used Leons, includes a complete set (front and rear) of high quality, Italian leather-clad sports seats with color panels on the seat back and squab, and contrasting stitching throughout.

The luxury accessory, supplied in association with aftermarket experts Auto-kit, also includes prominent FR badging. The effect leaves no one in any doubt that this is a seriously stylish, sporty machine.Seat Leon FR leather seats

Color choices include yellow – an ideal match with SEAT’s trademark Crono Yellow paint hue – red, light silver grey and classy, carbon fibre-esque black.

The seats, which naturally include side airbags identical to the standard-fit versions, have undergone rigorous testing and are safety certified by MIRA, the Motor Industry Research Association, having been assessed by VCA (the Vehicle Certification Agency).

Priced at $1,790 RRP, which includes full expert fitting at your local SEAT Dealer – or $1,980 RRP, to also add leather door panel inserts front and rear – the grippy, supportive and comfortable perches are part of a range of fashionable and exciting aftermarket accessories across the range of Spanish models.

Jim O’Donnell, SEAT UK’s Aftersales Marketing and Planning Manager, said of the new accessory choice: ‘We’re really pleased to be able to offer these new seats.

They are of the highest quality, are backed by a full three-year warranty and, above all, they look and feel superb!’
