It’s never been about going faster or getting there sooner. Whether long or short, we think journeys should be enjoyable. That’s why we focus not only on the driving pleasure of the one behind the wheel, but also the comfort of those along for the ride.
SEAT is a brand with a clear sporty spirit. Proof of this is in SEAT Sport, a division that works hand in hand with the Technical Centre and tests on the racetrack to bring out the best results in our sportiest models.
SEAT LEON CUP RACER
With its origins in the Leon 5 door and developed by passionate perfectionists, the CUP Racer was born to tear up the racetrack. Its punchy performance comes from its 330PS 4-cylinder engine, 6-speed DSG gearshift and double clutch.
Delivering the exceptional performance/power ratio in their class, the Eco TSI engines offer more control without any loss of sportiness. And the ACT technology deactivates cylinders when they’re not needed, ensuring frugal fuel consumption.
4Drive technology incorporates a permanent 4x4 integral traction system, with a fifth generation Haldex clutch that responds immediately to any driving situation.
SEAT EXTREME TESTS
Whether you’re doing the school run or a rocky road trip, you can always drive with confidence. We test our cars in every imaginable environment to ensure they can handle anything they may come up against. That means travelling over 12,400 miles to a multitude of places, with temperatures ranging from minus 40 to plus 45.
With racing driver Jordi Gené behind the wheel, the Leon CUPRA made history with its 280PS engine. It lapped the Green Hell in a time of 7m58.4s, smashing the previous record for front-wheel-drive production cars.
