The main claim of SEAT for him Frankfurt Motor Show 2015 They are not the renewed SEAT León Cupra or SEAT Ibiza Cupra. It is an SUV, derived from SEAT Leon, is called SEAT Leon Cross Sport and brings together, under the label of conceptual model, the performance arguments of the Cupra and the offroad approach of the X-perience.

SEAT does not hide its intentions: in its immediate future there are SUVs.

This duality is more than evident when we first come across a 3-door body that not only enjoys a greater height, 41 mm more to be exact, but also sports a number of fenders on bumpers and side sills that demonstrate its offroad approach.

Its mechanical section also shows off those two faces. Under his hood the mechanics beats 4-cylinder 2-liter TSI of cubic capacity beats with 300 horses, 10 horses more than the latest evolution of the SEAT León Cupra, but also these 300 horses are not only delivered to the front axle, but for the occasion are distributed among the four wheels, as other alternatives of the group do, the Volkswagen golf r and the Audi S3, with the difference of the raised body of this SEAT León Cross Sport.

Beyond the 300 horses we find a couple of 380 Nm available from 1,800 rpm and a transmission that falls into the hands of a 6-speed DSG gearbox. The management of the aforementioned all-wheel drive falls into the hands of a clutch type Haldex fifth generation.

Concept yes, but with solutions and a design more typical of a production car:

Although SEAT has presented this model as a conceptual one, we find that its design and its mechanical framework are more typical of a production car, but also solutions such as the adaptive cruise control, he signal recognition, he lane keeping system or a touch-screen multimedia system, with voice recognition and online services.
