Seat has officially announced the introduction of two brand new engines for its Leon X-Perience.
The newest model to be signed by Seat is also its first so-called “crossover”. We’re talking about the Leon X-Perience which was launched a few months back. According to the car manufacturer, the vehicle has now received two new engines, in the shape of the 1.4 liter TSI and the 1.6 liter TDI. According to the company, the 1.4 liter TSI turbo petrol burner is capable of putting down 125 HP (92 kW) and 200 Nm (147 lb-ft) of torque. This is only getting the 6-speed manual transmission and it is “eating” 5.3 liters of fuel every 100 km, while emitting 122 g/km of CO2. Prices for it start from 19,260 euros in Spain but in Germany it is available from 24,420 euros.
Besides the 1.4 liter TSI petrol burner, the Seat Leon X-Perience is now also coming with the 1.6 liter TDI diesel unit. This is producing a total of 110 HP (81 kW) and 250 Nm (184 lb-ft) of torque. There is nothing new here because the model was already available with this unit but the good part is that this can now be ordered with the 4DRIVE all-wheel drive system. The 6-speed manual transmission has been replaced by the 5-speed manual and the fuel consumption stands at 3.9 liters / 100 km, while the CO2 emissions stop at 103 g/km. This is now 2,000 euros cheaper. Seat will continue to offer the model with the 1.8 liter TSI with 180 HP (132 kW) , along with the 2.0 liter TDI with 150 HP (110 kW) or 184 HP (135 kW).
