Our spies have caught the first images of the 2012 Seat Leon. See the pictures inside.

Thanks to spy photographers, we can bring you the first pictures of the 2012 Seat Leon.

While details are limited, the three-door model is shorter than the camouflage suggests. If you take a look at the exhaust pipes, you'll notice they're recessed compared to the body.

Since the Leon will be based on the Golf VII, we can expect a seven-speed DSG gearbox, HCCI petrol engines and possibly a Twin Drive plug-in hybrid powertrain. The latter combines a 1.5-liter diesel engine with three electric motors, resulting in a 48km (30 miles) range on electricity alone.
