Seat’s high-riding three-door combines Cupra as well as X-perience cues, as well as could hint at a future hot hatch
Images of the Seat Leon Cross Sport Show Car have leaked to the web ahead of your vehicle’s official unveiling at the Frankfurt motor show.
These pictures, which were first published on a Czech automotive website, show the Leon Cross Sport’s design remains true to the official design sketches published by Seat a few days ago.
Few official details have been released beyond a statement saying the concept car “matches the Seat brand perfectly with its performance, dynamic design as well as crossover attitude as well as the urban lifestyle of our young spirited customers.”
However, reports suggest which power comes via the same 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine which powers the Golf R, tuned to produce 286bhp as well as 280lb ft of torque. The concept will be raised up by 41mm compared to the standard Leon SC, as well as offers four-wheel drive as standard.
Visually, the three-door car appears to blend cues via the firm’s hot hatch Cupra range as well as mildly rugged, high riding X-Perience line. This particular ties in with an emerging trend inside car industry, with mild off-roaders as well as SUVs becoming halo products which attract customers. The addition of performance variants will be intended to accentuate which trend, as well as with Seat’s first SUV not set to launch until next year the Leon Cross Sport Show Car gives Seat an opportunity to explore customer reaction to the theme.
