The Leon has been a constant in the dynamic compact class since the first generation, which appeared in 1999. So far under the SEAT banner, the current and now fourth edition bears the bronze-colored CUPRA emblem in the sporty versions. And this can certainly be understood as an obligation, after all, the still relatively young brand has also dedicated itself to racing - which is demonstrated not least by the joint ABT CUPRA XE team in the Extreme E series. But back to the road: the 2.0 TSI of the Leon VZ in the form of the sedan already delivers strong 300 PS (221 kW) and 400 Nm, as the all-wheel drive VZ sports tourer 310 PS (228 kW) and 400 Nm.
Rims: ABT Sport GR in 20 inches
The engineers at ABT Sportsline take this good basis as an opportunity to give the Spaniard even more strength. With the ABT Power performance upgrade *, the sedan now has a remarkable 360 PS (265 kW) and for the sports tourer even 370 PS (272 kW) and 450 Nm each. Of course, the world's largest tuner for vehicles from the VW and Audi group does not stop at a pure performance upgrade for the ambitious compact. For an even sportier road holding, the Allgäu company offers ABT suspension springs that lower the vehicle by up to 30 mm all round. For a more individual look, ABT Sport GR wheels in 20 inches are also available, which are optionally available in matt or glossy black. These are also included in an attractive package that the Kempten company is currently putting together for the Leon.
360 or 370 PS and suspension springs
In addition, there is the aforementioned ABT Power increase in performance to 360 or 370 PS as well as the suspension springs described. The total price for this package is 5.990,00 euros including VAT plus costs for assembly and TÜV. The ABT configurator shows which additional options are available for the CUPRA Leon.
