Look past the silly grammar and the Seat Leon X-Perience makes lots of sense. The a standard standard Leon ST wagon is great value, roomy, practical, decent to drive and cheap to run, so it's easy to see why somebody might want all those attributes teamed with four-wheel drive.
In the Leon, a new, fifth-generation Haldex clutch sends drive entirely to the front wheels in steady-state use, but up to 50 percent of it is diverted to the rear axle when necessary.
This, combined with a ride height raised by 15mm and a 28mm improvement in ground clearance, gives the X-Perience moderately useful off-road ability and a towing capacity of up to 2000kg (on the manual car). The boot remains unaffected and still offers a healthy 587 litres of space.
The Leon X-Perience comes in two trim levels, SE and SE Technology, and a choice of a 2.0 TDI in two outputs. The entry-level version is an SE 2.0 TDI 150 equipped with a six-speed manual gearbox. It is priced at £24,920 and produces 148bhp and 236lb ft.
Above that sits the SE Technology variant. Equipped with the same engine, it costs £26,905. The range-topper is a more powerful 2.0 TDI 184 – which produces 182bhp and 280lb ft – with dual-clutch DSG transmission. It costs £30,010.
Both engine variants offer identical fuel consumption and CO2 emissions at a claimed 57.6mpg (combined) and 129g/km. The four-wheel-drive system and beefed-up bodywork adds more than 120kg to the kerb weight.
