Seat officially presented the Leon Cross Sport Concept, the pre-production version of the real car. The compact crossover of the Spanish company, will be one of the four new models that will be added to the range of the company over the next two years and it is part of the investment of €3.3 billion for the period between 2015 and 2019.

Visually, the three-door model combines features from the Leon Cupra, with some details from the X-Perience, creating a compact urban crossover, while it is raised by 41 millimeters compared to the Leon SC. The model will go on sale in the first half of 2016 and it will be based on the MQB platform.
It is equipped with the same drivetrain, as the VW Golf R, which consists of a two-liter, turbocharged, four-cylinder engine producing 300 hp with 380 Nm of torque and an all-wheel drive system.
