The Seat Leon X-PERIENCE will be available from a starting price of £24,385 on-the-road. This four-wheel-drive off-roader compact SUV will be rolled out in 2016 and can be ordered starting September 1. It boasts of being capable in all road situations and poor weather conditions.
The Seat Leon X-PERIENCE still bears all the ST’s style and versatility, like its 587-liter boot, which increase to 1,470 liters when the rear seats are folded. The vehicle also features protection moldings on the door sills and wheel arches as well as aluminum look touches on the rear bumper and lower front spoiler.
Other features that make the Seat Leon X-PERIENCE as the ultimate Leon ST are integrated fog lamps and twin chrome tailpipes as well as substantial air intakes at the front.
Already blessed with an all-road suspension with extra ground clearance, the Leon X-PERIENCE boasts of the 4Drive all-wheel-drive system with intelligent EDS dynamic control that accurately distributes weight between all four wheels, hiking traction to improve handling and stability.
The compact SUV also features an extended electronic differential lock (XDS) for better traction while cornering. Leon X-PERIENCE is available in two trim levels -- SE and SE Technology.
The Leon X-PERIENCE range starts at £24,385 for the SE 2.0 TDI 150 manual with SE Technology 2.0 TDI 150 version priced at £26,370. The SE Technology 2.0 TDI 184 version with DSG transmission tops the range at £28,870.
SE version comes with 17-inch twin-spoke alloy wheels, black roof rails and dark tinted rear windows as well as with rear parking sensors and twin exhaust tailpipes.
This trim exudes a premium feel inside, thanks to dual zone climate control, leather steering wheel with orange stitching and X-PERIENCE logo, and cloth upholstered front sports seats with simil leather bolsters. It also features Hill Hold Control and a chrome loading sill.
While an upgrade to SE Technology would mean an additional cost of £1,985, a buyer would benefit from £3,500 worth of extras like the SEAT Media System Plus with 5.8-inch color touchscreen, DAB and satellite navigation, plus auto headlights, wipers and dimming rear view mirror. [source: SEAT]
