the gas compact in five points

Completely renewed in 2020, the Seat Leon is now available in petrol, diesel, plug-in hybrid and CNG versions. Of course, we are interested in the latter: the Seat Leon TGI, as a 5-seater sedan or as a station wagon. Deciphering its main characteristics.

Leon TGI engine: 130 hp under the hood

Whether sedan or sports tourer (pause), the Seat Leon TGI shows 130 hp. Powered by a 7-speed DSG automatic gearbox, it offers a maximum torque of 200 Nm and a top speed of 203 km/h. The manufacturer states that the 5-door Leon TGI accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 9.6 seconds. The slightly slower pause version TGI ST performs the same exercise in 9.9 seconds.

Autonomy Leon TGI: 3 CNG tanks

With its three compressed natural gas (CNG) tanks, the Seat Leon TGI can transport 17.3 kg of natural gas stored at 200 bar.

On the consumption side, the compact petrol engine from Seat claims 3.9 to 4.3 kg per 100 km or a comfortable range of 440 km. Already noticeable for long trips, this is complemented by a small additional 9-liter tank, which provides 150 km of additional autonomy.

Two bodies: sedan or station wagon

Like the other engines in the range, the CNG version of the Seat Leon is available in two body styles: sedan or station wagon.

In addition to the additional length of 27 centimeters, the station wagon version is characterized above all by the loading capacity in the trunk. While the sedan is limited to 300 liters, the Leon SportTourer TGI climbs to 480 liters. A big argument for some professionals, especially taxis and VTC.
