SEAT has taken the wraps off the Leon ST; it's the first time it has ever produced an estate version of the model. The ST will go on sale in January 2014, priced from £16,999.

It becomes the third member of the SEAT Leon family, following the five-door hatchback and three-door SC, which have both hit showrooms in the past 12 months.

The new Leon ST estate promises plenty of load space and to major on flexibility. The boot is 587 litres with the seats up and this can be increased to 1,470 litres with the seats folded. The twin-level boot floor makes loading bulky items much easier; the rear seats can be folded flat using easy-to-reach handles on the sidewalls of the boot. It measures 4,535 mm long (264 mm longer than the five-door Leon) and is said to have useful touches to make it easy to live. The rear seat backrests, for instance, can be folded very easily from the boot using integrated release handles.
