Spanish company Seat are set to unveil the brand new, five-door Leon at the 2012 Mondial de lAutomobile.

This is the worlds first chance to catch a look at the new generation of spacious Leons, which will ultimately include a five-door hatchback, three-door SC and ST estate. Also on show will be the specifications for both the FR and SE models.

Seat will be keen to parade the extra space their new car offers. The latest Leon now has better luggage capacity and more legroom, a result of the wheelbase being six centimeters longer than the previous models. It also boasts 74.3mpg and no annual Vehicle Excise Duty thanks to co2 emissions from only 99g/km.

For those looking for something a bit sportier, the Seat Drive Profile allows the user to change the gearing, throttle and power steering characteristics in the FR models.

If you're interested in getting your hands on one you will have to wait till 2013. The UK order book opens in February for delivery in March. Until then view the full Seat range of cars to lease here.
