Seat Leon to be listed in China in February

Published on December 22, 2011 by W.E. Ning

The Seat Leon hatchback/cross-over/mpv/thing will be listed in China in February. The Leon will be imported, there are no plans yet for local production. Engines for China: 1.8 turbo and 2.0 turbo.

The Seat Ibiza hatchback will follow in June, as an import as well. Engines: 1.2 turbo and 1.4 turbo.

A hopeless case this Seat-plan is. All competition is made locally and therefore much cheaper. Chinese car buyers won’t pay a ‘premium’ for Seats because they don’t know the brand and because the cars ain’t premium at all.

    Seat isn’t volkswagens budget brand, technically there supposed to be sports brand. I think this is what volkswagen is trying to emphasise as the 2.0 turbo in the leon is probably the Golf GTI engine and the 1.4 turbo in the ibiza is the engine from the polo gti. Also the leon is just a hatchback, about the size of the golf.
