Seat introduced the Leon ST X-Perience, a rugged AWD version of its popular estate that will arrive on the market as a 2015MY. As you can see from the photos, the off-road capabilities of the 2015 Seat Leon ST X-Perience are underlined by the new front and rear bumper with protective skid plates as well as by the black plastic design elements that adorn the wheelarches.
In addition, the side sills are also covered in black plastic in order to complete the design. Furthermore, thanks to the improved ground clearance (15 mm) the Leon ST X-Perience offers improved off-road capability.
Under the hood, we will find a choice of three four-cylinder engines: a turbocharged 1.8-liter petrol that delivers 180 PS (132 kW) and 280 Nm (206 lb-ft) of torque; a 2.0-liter TDI diesel engine that delivers 150 PS (110 kW) and 320 Nm (236 lb-ft) of torque or 184 PS (135 kW) and 380 Nm (280 lb-ft) of torque; a 1.6-liter TDI diesel with 110 PS (81 kW) and 250 Nm (184 lb-ft) of torque.
These engines are offered with a standard six-speed manual or an optional six-speed dual clutch automatic (DGS) transmission. Both gearbox options are offered with automatic stop/start and brake energy recuperation functions.
Power is delivered to all four wheels through the latest Haldex multi-plate clutch four-wheel drive system. The 2015 Seat Leon ST X-Perience will make its public debut in October at the 2014 Paris Motor Show.
