The new SEAT Leon 2020 model year is preparing for the world debut on January 28 with artistic camouflage.

Just a few days before the world premiere, the fourth generation SEAT Leon will be shown in camouflage film, the design of which is inspired by modernism and the city of Barcelona. For an area of ​​20 square meters of special molded vinyl, SEAT designers used broken tile techniques (trencadís in Catalan).

“The new SEAT Leon has a great personality and is very difficult to disguise because it is a sculpture on wheels that expresses the emotional nature of SEAT. Leon was born here, and because of the special relationship that we have with Barcelona, ​​we were looking for a city for inspiration, ”says Jordy Font, head of SEAT Color & Trim Development.

As the new film is being used by SEAT for the first time, implementing the idea has become quite a challenge. After all, the main goal of camouflage is still the distortion of the shape of the car. Before the final version, the team tried several options to blur the boundaries, but the result was quite meaningful and convincing – Barcelona and the Mediterranean are the most colorful.

According to the designer, the most difficult sections for vinyl are mirrors and uneven parts and spoilers. In addition, the most important areas to hide are the headlights, the shape of the taillights and the tension line.

Judging by the photographs, the specialists did a rather capacious job to hide the design of the new crossover. However, you can notice some details, including the outer part of the rear lights, part of the sports rear bumper with flat tailpipes, side mirrors and the inscription in italics Leon on the tailgate.
