New Seat Leon turned out to be worse than its predecessor in the moose test

Specialists of the agency km77 brought the new hatchback Seat Leon to the “moose” test.

The Leon, which is actually the Spanish version of the Mk8 VW Golf, borrows a lot from the German model, including an aggressive yet attractive design. Alas, the model does not have sufficient controllability in sharp turns.

So, initially the Spanish experts decided to pass the test at a speed of 73 km / h in Normal mode, but this attempt failed, a hatchback with a 2.0-liter TSI engine crashed into the cones and did not “obey” the driver. And to successfully pass the test, the model had to be switched to Sport mode and the speed increased to 75 km / h, but even in this case, the hatchback did not show flawless understeer.

Interestingly, the previous generation Seat Leon with a 1.5-liter TSI engine and Bridgestone Potenza 225/40 R18 tires, the same as in the current model, was able to pass the moose test at a speed of 77 km / h, and then the car the same Spanish experts were in charge.

In addition, it was recently noted that Seat has demonstrated an updated Seat Ateca cross. It should be emphasized that the car has got visual changes, a new interior and enhanced personalization options.
