Seat Leon ST 4Drive unveiled

The Leon with all-wheel drive comes to market with two TDI engines generating 77 kW / 105 PS and 110 kW / 150 PS. Besides powerful performance, these gutsy engines also demonstrate exceptional efficiency: The average fuel consumption of 4.5 and 4.8 litres per 100 kilometres are outstanding figures for vehicles of this configuration (all data preliminary).

The Leon ST 4Drive makes its public debut at the Vienna Autoshow in January, market introduction will start with the 77 kW / 105 PS version in April 2014 and with the 110 kW / 150 PS version in summer.

“With its new all-wheel drive, the Leon ST 4Drive proves that expressive design, thrilling sporting character and exceptional everyday usability do not have to be mutually exclusive. The 4Drive will build on the success of the new Leon family,” says Jürgen Stackmann, President of SEAT S.A. “With its dynamic look, impressively high level of functionality and state-of-the-art technology, the Leon ST 4Drive defines the new standard among compact estate cars – and at a very fair price.”

Alongside the latest-generation TDI engines and permanent all-wheel drive with intelligent, electronic control, the Leon ST 4Drive boasts a wide array of ultra-modern technologies. The four-wheel EDS dynamic control system (electronic differential locks on both axles), the extended electronic differential lock for better traction while cornering (XDS), the electronic stability programme and the multi-collision brake deliver maximum safety. Further optional hi-tech features include full-LED headlamps, ACC adaptive cruise control with city emergency brake function, drowsiness detection and the Heading Control lane-keeping assistant.

“Dynamism and versatility – the Leon ST is the perfect combination,” says Dr. Matthias Rabe, SEAT Vice President of Research and Development. “As a 4Drive with permanent all-wheel drive, it not only offers reliable traction and optimum safety, it also guarantees driving fun in every situation and under all conditions.”

4Drive has a long tradition at SEAT: In the Leon 1,8 20VT 180PS 4x4 from 1999, a torquey engine and the superior traction of all-wheel drive formed a perfect combination.
