SEAT Leon X-PERIENCE

You probably didn't know that SEAT sells an Allroad-style go-almost-anywhere estate. What's it like? Jonathan Crouch reports.

Ten Second Review

The SEAT Leon X-PERIENCE sounds like a tacky dealer fun day with balloons and face painting but is in fact a very credible ruggedised all-wheel drive version of the Leon ST estate. Choose between 150 or 184PS versions of the 2.0-litre turbodiesel, both returning better than 55mpg.

Background

SEAT's place in the hierarchy of brands within the Volkswagen empire hasn't always been easy to pin down. At one point, it was positioned as the 'Spanish Alfa Romeo', the next it appeared to be just a different flavoured Skoda. With the Leon X-PERIENCE, the Spanish manufacturer appears to be the recipient of trickle-down concepts from Audi. You're probably familiar with the allroad series of Audi estates. The first appeared in 1999, with the smaller A4 allroad appearing a decade later. Skoda got their Octavia Scout at the same time, these ruggedised estate models appealing to buyers who generally did no off-roading but wanted something that looked as if they did. The Leon X-PERIENCE is cut from the same cloth; more capable than you'll probably require but not as expensive as you might expect.

Driving Experience

The X-PERIENCE takes the standard Leon ST estate, adds all-wheel drive and gives you the choice of two powerplants, 150 or 184PS versions of the 2.0-litre TDI diesel. The key difference between the two versions, aside from the obvious power output, is that the 150PS gets a six-speed manual transmission as standard while the 184PS car runs with a twin-clutch DSG 'box. This helps it to some pretty crisp acceleration, the 380Nm of torque deployed seamlessly to zip the car to 62mph in 7.1 seconds and on to 139mph. The all-wheel drive system utilises a fifth-generation Haldex clutch positioned at the end of the prop shaft in front of the rear-axle differential. In normal operation, the clutch transmits most of the engine power to the front wheels. Should their traction decrease, the torque is diverted smoothly and in a matter of a few milliseconds to the rear. This latest generation clutch no longer requires a pressure accumulator, making it considerably more compact and 1.4 kg lighter than similar parts in older applications. Compared with the Leon ST, the X-PERIENCE stands around 15 millimetres higher, giving it a little more ground clearance. You get MacPherson struts up front and a multilink rear suspension, while shock absorbers and coil springs are mounted separately. SEAT Drive Profile enables the driver to vary the characteristics of the power steering, throttle control and the DSG transmission in three modes - eco, comfort and sport. There is also an individual setting. In addition, SEAT Drive Profile incorporates a sound actuator close to the engine to provide an even more refined engine tone.

Design and Build

The Leon X-PERIENCE doesn't plaster the off-road cues on too thickly. There is some protection moulding on the door sills and wheel arches but the car does without hefty plastic bolsters on the flanks. At the back, you'll find a bash-plate but it looks more cosmetic than functional, SEAT instead calling it an 'aluminium-look insert'. The chunky wheel arches can accommodate 17-inch or optional 18-inch wheels in a dedicated five-twin-spoke design. The roof rails are finished in black. Visual tweaks made to this improved version include revised bumpers and bodywork with sharper, more assertive lines, plus there's a smarter front grille. Inside, the ambient lighting LEDs' intensity can be regulated as the driver wishes from the newly redesigned eight-inch central infotainment screen. This monitor eliminates the need for many of the buttons and dials that were scattered around the fascia on the previous model. From this monitor, the LED ambient lighting of the cabin can be dimmed or intensified, giving the interior a classy feel. Otherwise, things are much as they were before. The luggage compartment offers a carrying capacity of 587-litres, which extends to as much as 1,470-litres with the rear-seats folded down.

Market and Model

Prices start at around £28,000 for the 150PS TDI 4Drive version, rising to around £32,000 for the 184PS TDI DSG-auto variant. The interior of the Leon X-PERIENCE may make you think twice about importing a whole load of mud and sand into it, offering some tidy black and grey fabric upholstery, as well as the option of brown Alcantara or all-black leather seats. You're also reminded that you're not just at the wheel of a normal Leon ST, thanks to the 'X-PERIENCE' logos on the door sills and steering wheel, while orange stitching adds a welcome lift to an otherwise fairly sombre cabin. Customers can also specify a 'Connectivity Box' in the central console that enables wireless smartphone charging. And there's the brand's 'Full Link' system, which enables you to use apps from your smartphone on the fascia screen via either the 'Apple CarPlay' or 'Android Auto' media systems. This improved Leon also features many more options when it comes to electronic safety systems. Examples of this include 'Traffic Jam Assist', which virtually drives the car for you in stop/start traffic. And a 'Pedestrian Protection System' which scans the road ahead not only for other vehicles that might pose accident hazards but also people too.

Cost of Ownership

With a pair of modern common-rail four-cylinder turbodiesel engines to choose from, it's not surprising that the Leon X-PERIENCE records some very competitive fuel consumption figures. Standard fit Start/Stop and Energy Recover systems are key elements of the efficiency package. Even the top 184PS unit manages a combined economy figure of 57.6mpg and emissions of 139 grammes per kilometre. Go for the 2.0 TDI with 150PS and you'll be looking at a fuel consumption figure of 58.9mpg with emissions of 125g/km. The Leon has always been a vehicle that has carried an extremely reasonable asking price that is in turn backed up by solid residual values. Thanks to advanced construction techniques and the use of lightweight materials in the body's manufacture, around 90kg has been taken out of the chassis and body compared to the previous generation Leon.

Summary

The Leon X-PERIENCE adds another dimension to SEAT's increasingly strong product portfolio and offers a well-built all-wheel drive turbodiesel estate that won't cost much to run. It's a sad fact but this car will probably mop up a good number of sales of people who'd secretly hankered after an Audi A4 allroad but couldn't afford the asking price and couldn't countenance walking into a Skoda dealer for an Octavia Scout. A go (almost) anywhere diesel estate is the perfect solution for many families and this sector may well come back into vogue with the backlash against suburban soft-roaders. The X-PERIENCE doesn't over-egg things in this regard. Look carefully and you'll see that it's a bit beefier than a standard Leon ST estate but it's certainly doesn't come equipped like something from the Dakar rally. In that regard, it's a car that seems finely tuned to the current demands of family car buyers.
