At this year’s Frankfurt Motor Show, SEAT unveiled their latest showcar, the SEAT Leon Cross Sport. The crossover concept is based on the Leon CUPRA and breaks convention, bringing sporty dynamic performance off road. The SEAT Leon Cross Sport takes the performance of a compact sports car and adds the versatility of an all-wheel drive, revolutionising the off road driving experience. The SEAT Leon Cross Sport showcar is an all road athlete in every sense.

Incredible performance is at its heart. The two-litre TSI engine is a Nurburgring record breaker and comes from the Leon CUPRA, a car with a reputation as one of the best high-performance models in the compact class. It generates an impressive 221kw of power, delivering acceleration from 0-100km/h in just 4.9s. Its DSG dual-clutch transmission delivers fast and precise gearshifts.
The electronically controlled all-wheel drive, significant ground clearance and impressive power guarantee an unbeatable driving experience no matter how far off the beaten track this car is. This revolutionary all rounder pushes the limits in every way possible.
The Leon Cross Sport’s exterior design befits its athletic and adventurous attitude. Based on the Leon SC CUPRA, this two-door’s evocative shape is perfectly proportioned with clean lines cutting through taut surfaces. Its exceptional dynamics and the emotional design language of the Leon SC CUPRA are enhanced by its robust stance and high ground clearance.
What’s more, the 19inch wheels add to the poised and distinctive look, along with the front and rear CUPRA elements, such as the signature grille mesh, large air intake and four pipe exhaust system. LED headlamps are also a welcome addition, not only bringing a look of determination with them but also the very best on and off-road visibility.
The Leon Cross Sport showcar commands attention and holds it at every possible opportunity. The Ultra Orange body colour can’t be ignored and not just because of its intense hue but also because it’s a colour that first came to light at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show on SEAT’s much talked about 20V20. This however, is not all the two cars have in common; both redefine the combination of dynamic performance and versatility, conveying SEAT’s unmistakable design language and symbolising the brand’s intended design direction.
Inside, colours have been inspired by the Barcelona sun, bringing touches of orange into the cockpit and accenting the intricate stitching on the leather seats. The leather is combined with Alcantara and high gloss black paint, evidence of the high quality materials and attention to detail that has gone into the Leon Cross Sport.
Good looks and impressive power are no substitute for intelligence. That’s why the SEAT Leon Cross sport also comes with the latest generation of connectivity technology from SEAT, allowing a safer and more connected driving experience. With Full link Technology it is possible to connect to a wide range of mobile devices to the car and operate them using the touchscreen infotainment system.
The SEAT Leon Cross Sport is equipped with an extensive array of assistance systems to offer safety in the urban jungle. Progressive, specially adapted steering and an electronic stability system both help improve overall handling. And adaptive cruise control with front assist, traffic sign recognition and lane assistance all add to the all round incredible driving experience.
The SEAT Leon Cross Sport really is a revolutionary urban rebel car that has the potential to offer an all-terrain driving experience like no other.
