3-Door Seat Leon SC Discontinued In The UK, 5-Door And Estate Still On Sale

Sales of three-door hatchbacks continue to drop in most markets, as customers prefer to go with the more practical five-door versions instead. The result, of course, is automakers dropping the former from their lineups.

The latest model to get the boot is the Leon SC.

Discovered by Autocar and confirmed after taking a look on the company’s local website, the three-door Leon was dropped from the brand’s UK range, which currently includes the five-door hatchback and ST (nee Estate) versions, as well as the Cupra hot hatch.

The base Seat Leon carries an MSRP of £18,960 ($24,464/€21,079) in the UK, whereas the ST is almost £1,000 ($1,290/€1,112) more expensive. By comparison, the entry-level Renault Megane starts from £17,315 ($22,341/€19,250), and the Megane Sport Tourer wagon can be ordered from £18,515 ($23,890/€20,584).

Seat continues to offer the Leon SC in different markets across the European continent. In Spain, for instance, the car starts from €17,900 ($20,773), carrying a €1,880 ($2,182) premium over the five-door compact hatchback.

Earlier this month, Seat dropped the three-door version of the Mii in Europe and at the same time also revised iys trim levels. The Volkswagen Up! and Skoda Citigo are still being offered in both three- and five-door versions, but probably not for long.
