Seat Leon China

The Seat Leon will be listed on the China car market on March 22, price will range from 250.000 to 300.000 yuan. Ridiculously expensive indeed, the Seat Leon is imported and will therefore cost more than a full-spec China-made Audi A4L. Volkswagen wants to position Seat as a ‘sporty’ brand in China and hopes buyers will therefore happily pay far too much money for a crappy Golf. Engines: 1.8T/160hp, 2.0T/211hp or 265hp. Via: Autohome.
