The next generation SEAT Leon returns to the Nurburgring for the final round of trials before its soon debut is likely to take place in November or December this year.

Although this is not the same prototype that we saw in August of this year (judging by the registration numbers), it is very similar and has identical camouflage. The Spanish company does not want to reveal any new details of the external design, and we are still dealing with a strongly masked prototype.

Of course, fake body panels are long gone, and the test car proudly shows off its production body, headlights and taillights. The fourth-generation Leon will be much sharper than the previous model, and will be the most athletic of the Golf / Octavia / Leon trio, which is scheduled for release this fall. All three use the same MQB platform.

Photos from the inside of the cab show that a fully digital instrument cluster with a card between the sensors will replace the traditional cluster (at least in more expensive trim levels), while a new center field design with a large infotainment display will be present on the dashboard.

At the moment, it is not clear when we will see the car, but we expect to enter the market in 12 months. Speaking of the premiere venue, the new Leon was supposed to debut in Frankfurt last month, but it turned out that the SEAT will follow Volkswagen and Skoda, presenting their compact car at a special event at the end of this year.
