Seat has launched its answer to Volkswagen’s hot GTD diesel hatch: the Leon FR 2.0 TDi.

Available to order now, ahead of deliveries starting in September, the Leon FR 2.0 TDI promises to combine hot hatch performance with supermini running costs thanks to its 67.3 mpg combined fuel consumption and CO2 rating of 109 g/km. This ensures owners pay no VED for the first year and company car drivers are subject to a modest 16% BIK charge.

Equipped with a six-speed manual gearbox, the Leon FR 2.0 TDI 184 PS costs from £22,075 for the three-door SC variant complete with a high level of standard equipment including LED tail lights, sports suspension, climate control, front sports seats, MP3 and Bluetooth connectivity.
