SEAT updates entire range for 2019

Extra features and new trim levels are now available across the SEAT range

SEAT has announced a host of new trim level changes and upgrades for its entire UK range. The Spanish brand says the changes are to ‘improve the attractiveness and usability’ of its cars, while providing extra choice to customers. All of the new specifications are available to order now, with prices unchanged over the current models.

The biggest upgrades are for the popular SEAT Leon hatchback, despite the arrival of the next-generation model in 2020. There’s a new Sport Black Matt special edition, adding black wing mirrors, grilles, a black roof headliner and microsuede fabric seats, plus 18-inch black alloy wheels and SEAT’s Convenience Pack (auto lights, wipers and a dimming rear-view mirror). The renamed SEAT Leon Estate gets black roof rails in this trim, while a new Emocion Red colour is available.

Both the SEAT Arona and the SEAT Ibiza can also be chosen in the new paint colour, and the Arona now features DAB radio across the range. Arona FR Sport and Xcellence trims now benefit from heated seats, too.

One of our favourite family SUVs, the SEAT Ateca, gains a host of upgrades to keep it fresh for 2019. An upgraded eight-inch touchscreen is now standard, replacing the 6.5-inch screen, as is black interior trim finishers and two extra USB ports in the rear - provided you choose SE, FR or Xcellence trims. A frameless rear-view mirror is now fitted on the latter two of those trims, while Xcellence also gets SEAT’s Dynamic Chassis Control (DCC) system for the first time. There’s a new Crystal Black paint choice too.

The company’s long-lasting seven-seat MPV, the SEAT Alhambra, also gets a couple of extras. Its 6.5-inch touchscreen is now standard and includes sat nav. Traffic sign recognition and blind-spot monitoring are fitted across the range to make the car safer, and a new Reflex Silver colour is offered.

SEAT has also revealed that production of the upcoming Mii electric will start in the last three months of the year, so we expect first deliveries to happen in the first few months of 2020. When it goes on sale, the Mii electric will replace the petrol-powered SEAT Mii.
