Martorell, 31/1/2014. -The new SEAT Leon has been voted “Best Car of the Year in Catalonia 2014” by the Associació Premsa Motor de Catalunya (APMC) after an in-depth review of all market launches last year.

More than thirty professionals from different Catalan media outlets made up the voting panel for a prize that has just held its first edition. They awarded top scores to significant aspects of the new Leon such as design, active and passive safety, technological innovation, user-friendliness, after-sales service and maintenance, value-for-money, environmental benefits and recyclable component content. After careful consideration, the Leon outscored the second and third place contenders Peugeot 308 and BMW i3, an outstanding result that underscores its leading position within the segment.
