What exactly is this supposed to be? And how big is it because it almost looks like its the size of the Altea.

so it's basically a chop-top altea with a bump in power and some boy-racer touches?

IMO Seat have seriously messed up with the styling of 3 cars the same.

VW is starting to get really silly with all of the cars from each of their branches looking the same.<p>That said, the interior on this guy sure looks really nice. I wonder how much will make production - if this really is a prototype it should be all of it.

It will look exactly the same when it goes into production, a few details excepted (it will look less sporty, as usual with seat concepts)

<B>SEAT presents the Leon Prototype</B><p>The Geneva Motor Show (1 March 2005) was the venue for SEAT to reveal the Prototype of one of its most important cars to come, the new Leon. The Leon Prototype gives a clear indication of the look and image of the future Leon, which will build on the sporty character and reputation of the current car. The Prototype also clearly exhibits some of the features of the SEAT Salsa, the concept car that was presented to great acclaim at this same show in 2000, and heralded the vision of the style and image for all new SEAT cars to come.<p><B>The sportiest car from "new SEAT"</B><p>The new Leon will be the third model in the new generation of SEAT products following on from the Altea and Toledo, both also created in the Salsa mould. The Leon Prototype has the distinctive lines of a modern coupe, but combines this sporty character with the space and comfort normally expected from a bigger saloon car in this class. Its 4,343 mm length, ample track and wheelbase make it ideal for comfortable driving in urban environments and also give it exceptional dynamic driving qualities for swift and safe travel on the open road. <p>Although the Leon Prototype has a four-door body it conveys the image of a beautiful coupe thanks to the profile of the rear windows and the hidden handles on the rear doors. The wide rear hatch also ensures it provides maximum versatility. <p>The SEAT design team has worked meticulously on the interior of the Leon Prototype using leading edge technology and high-quality materials. The result is a spacious cabin configured as a 2+2 with an emotional and sporty ambience achieved by allowing the exterior design to reflect on the interior. <p>The Leon Prototype is powered by a turbo-charged 200PS FSI direct injection petrol engine with maximum power available between 5,100 and 6,000 rpm. All this power is transmitted to the front wheels through an automatic DSG six-speed gearshift and then to the road by an impressive set of 19 inch alloy wheels shod with 265/30 tyres. The performance is excellent: the Leon Prototype reaches a top speed of 236 km/h (145 mph) and accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (0-62 mph) in 6.9 seconds.<p>The Leon Prototype also includes other exclusive features such as new optical technology in the form of bi-function xenon headlights, four video cameras, two monitors and a DVD player. The four cameras transmit images from different viewpoints around the car, three outside and one inside. These images can be watched inside the car on two separate monitors, which can also play DVDs through the player located under the passenger seat.<p>Newspress

The engines will all be shared between the 2 cars. This looks like it has the Golf GTI's engine, and that will also appear in a future Cupra version of the Altea. Maybe this will eventually gat a Cupra R version, and that would seriously resemble the concept.<p>Overall, and i've said it before, it looks like a squached Altea. Could have been a hole lot better.

it doesn't look bad (better than the altea-with-a-bigger-trunk toledo) but IMO seat really needs to differentiate their cars more; this makes all the GM/ford rebadging jobs from the last decade look like extensive restylings in comparison.

Regarding the concept: Altea = Golf PLus ; Leon = Golf.<p>Regarding the style: SEAT always said that the three cars would belong to the same family, meaning same design but different overall proportions. Might be a mistake, might not be.......time will tell.

It's too bad VW can't slap a VW badge on it and send it here as the Golf. Instead the USA will get a nearly 3 year old design when the GTi finally staggers into the show rooms a year from now.

I suppose its nice enough, but the idea behind it is quite frankly - ROTTEN. The third variation on the Altea theme, how very UNoriginal.

This car, in my opinion, is much more stylish. Does SEAT have a Jetta derivative? Because if so, I'd probably prefer it to the new Jetta as well.

No they don't, and i don't think there will be such a car, given that it would have had the 'Toledo' name.

Hey, I like it! The wacky styling of SEAT is really awesome - it might have the same problem as Aston Martin, but still, you can't deny its a looker.

Mazda does it with the Mazda6 (Sedan, Wagon, 5-door), Nissan here in Europe with the Primera (Sedan, Wagon, 5-door) not to mention many others.<br>The only problem: I think the Toledo doesn't fit good enough in this line. Seat understands this model as a modern interpretation of a sedan (the predecessor was a 'true' sedan). <br>But Seat itself is absolutely not convinced by this car: Here in Germany it is on sale for about two months and i didn't see an ad anywhere. No ads in magazines, no posters, no tv-commercials... <br>They had better styled the Toledo as a traditional, sporty sedan, then possible buyers had the choice between three really different body-styles.<br>

Im not a big fan of that design, but I think Seat Altea is quite good seller in here, I dont know the sale figures, but considering that the local VW dealer isnt selling Seat (but audi) and many consider it quite exotic brand. I have seen quite many Alteas and they started to sell it only few moths ago.

They don't try to sell them as separate model lines with different names (the way SEAT appears to do). As separate model lines, the perception is that they could have done much better than to make almost identicaly styled copies of other model lines.
