2019 제네바 모터쇼를 통해 정식으로 선보이게 될 2019 세아트 쿠프라 포멘토르(CUPRA FORMENTOR) 좋은 사진들만 정리해봅니다.
쿠프라의 고성능 플러그인 하이브리드 모델입니다. 245마력짜리 추력을 듀얼 클러치 변속기로 다룹니다. 디퍼렌셜 록 기능과 DCC 섀시 컨트롤 기능까지 갖췄네요. 전기로만 50km를 주행할 수 있는 것도 장점입니다. 앞으로는 이런 형태의 플러그인 하이브리드가 보편화될 듯합니다.
CUPRA is marking its first anniversary by taking the covers off its most stunning, dynamic and eye-catching vehicle yet, the CUPRA Formentor concept car.
CUPRA’s first year of operations has proved its potential in the market, as sales in 2018 increased by 40% compared to last year, with up to 14,400 units sold. After releasing its first model, the CUPRA Ateca, the brand’s plan to double sales within the next three to five years will gain momentum with the unveiling of the CUPRA Formentor.
Wayne Griffiths, CEO and member of the Board of CUPRA, highlighted that “CUPRA’s current success is a clear reflection of the brand’s popularity in the market. CUPRA’s response is exceeding all of our expectations and we want to continue consolidating this special brand, which is winning over the most demanding car enthusiasts. Now is the time to go full throttle with CUPRA.”
With a dazzling exterior design that instantly captures the attention, an interior that cocoons the driver and passengers whilst integrating the latest technologies and a powertrain that provides inimitable performance, the CUPRA Formentor is a window into the future of the high-performance brand.
The vehicle brings together the benefits of a performance car with the qualities of an SUV, at a time when the CUV segment is destined to see incredible growth. It demonstrates the ambition, expressiveness and inspiration that the brand inherently holds and underlines the CUPRA’s position as a technology brand with one eye on the future.
Designed to be noticed The CUPRA Formentor is a concept car full of character, one sculpted to emphasise its varied attributes and the last word in sophistication, which exudes emotion.
The CUPRA Formentor is closer to the ground to highlight its sportiness, with a visual emphasis placed towards the rear of the vehicle while at the same time accentuating the length of the bonnet, underscoring its dynamic proportions.
“The CUPRA Formentor’s strong design points are the beauty of its proportions, the strength of its lines, the refinement of its surfaces and the sublime colour concept. I truly believe that CUPRA Formentor inspires pure desire,” said Alejandro Mesonero-Romanos, Director of Design.
The two-tone body is reminiscent of a robust all-terrain vehicle, but the CUPRA Formentor’s design uses the aesthetic technique to lighten the vehicle’s silhouette. But unlike the toughened, rough finish on a traditional SUV, the CUPRA Formentor uses a seamless design, greatly amplifying the vehicle’s exterior quality. The feeling of high quality is strengthened with the integration of the rear infinite light concept that magnifies the distinctive look of the rear of the vehicle, while the overall design is heightened by the matt petrol blue exclusive exterior colour.
Interior sophistication The CUPRA Formentor’s expressive exterior design is matched by its high quality interior. The vehicle’s cabin provides a sense of modernity and sportiness with a unique take on the feel of the CUPRA brand.
From the moment the door is opened and the unique welcome light is projected, to the CUPRA steering wheel and leather-clad bucket seats, the CUPRA Formentor’s occupants are cocooned in a high-end interior that wraps around the driver and their passengers.
The dashboard seemingly floats, providing a horizontal line from each door across the front of the cabin, helping maximise the vehicle’s expressiveness. The use of dark chrome and black high gloss accents throughout the interior aid the cabin’s premium feel. The carbon-backed sports bucket seats give a sense of lightness while also highlighting the performance credentials of the CUPRA Formentor as the driver sits lower, in a more ergonomic position.
Technology is at the forefront inside the vehicle with the integration of the digital cockpit putting all the necessary driving information right in front of the driver, and a 10” panoramic floating navigation system providing a near endless source of functionality and connectivity to the occupants.
Engineered for the future The CUPRA Formentor is engineered to take the brand into the future, incorporating one of the most advanced propulsion systems and providing the performance the CUPRA badge demands, but in a sustainable manner. Powering the CUPRA Formentor is the high-performance plug-in hybrid engine, a powertrain designed to meet today’s requirements for performance and efficiency and begin the electrification of the brand.
Mixing the technology of an advanced high-performance plug-in hybrid petrol engine with a high power output and the high-torque characteristics of an electric motor allows the CUPRA Formentor to surpass the performance expectations of the driver.
Linked to a dual-clutch DSG transmission the total output of 180kW/245PS is delivered seamlessly to the wheels. The intelligent DCC chassis setup and differential lock mean that the vehicle performs majestically no matter what the driving conditions or driving style as the driver directs the car with its progressive steering.
But while the CUPRA Formentor is developed to offer the highest levels of dynamics, the combination of electric and combustion energy also allows the car to reduce the overall fuel consumption of the vehicle, and significantly lowers carbon emissions. And with the advantage of a large integrated battery pack, the CUPRA Formentor can drive in pure electric mode for up to 50km in the new WLTP cycle (equivalent to a range of around 70km in the NEDC cycle).
The CUPRA Formentor will make its world debut at this year’s Geneva Motor Show, where the public will be able to see the concept car for the first time, giving a taste of the high-performance brand’s future.

Martorell, 18/09/18 –The future design direction of new SEAT models has been unveiled tonight as the wraps have come off the all-new Tarraco. The large SUV – named after the Mediterranean city of Tarragona, a historic cultural centre with a spirit that is young and adventurous – completes the Barcelona-based manufacturer’s SUV range.
The latest vehicle designed and developed at the facilities of SEAT in Martorell (Barcelona) and produced in Wolfsburg (Germany), marks the third instalment in the company’s SUV product offensive and shows a glimpse of the future design language of new SEAT models. Tarraco is the new flagship model of the brand and will bring the company new customers, boost brand image and have an important effect on profits, as this is a model with high contribution margins.
Tarraco sits at the top of SEAT’s SUV family, as the bigger brother to both the Ateca and Arona, and mixes state-of-the-art technology, dynamic and agile handling, practicality and functionality with elegant, progressive design. The Tarraco combines the many advantages of its larger dimensions to offer a vehicle that can take on all elements of modern life.
The new SUV blends the key attributes of every vehicle in the SEAT range – design and functionality, sportiness and comfort, accessibility and quality, technology and emotion –but in a form that suits a wider variety of lifestyles. The new Tarraco is designed for drivers who need the usefulness of a five or seven-seater and the practicality of a higher driving position, but are conscious of a vehicle’s aesthetics and appreciate the Tarraco’s balance between self-confidence and elegance. That balance is maintained across both available trim levels, SE and Xcellence.
As the SUV market continues to expand, the Tarraco will play a key role for SEAT when it is introduced at the very beginning of 2019, strengthening the brand and aiding further growth at a time when the company’s sales are rising steadily already. Between January and August, SEAT delivered 383,900 vehicles worldwide, an increase of 21.9% over the same period in 2017.
“SEAT is experiencing its biggest product offensive in recent times. The introduction of the SEAT Tarraco, our very first large SUV, forms part of our €3.3 billion investment between 2015 and 2019 in the company’s future and the range of vehicles we offer,” said President of SEAT, Luca de Meo, “It completes our family of SUVs, to suit every customer’s need”.
The SEAT Tarraco has been engineered for drivers looking for excitement and functionality in a single vehicle. People who need the practicality of up to seven seats and the space to transport family and friends, but appreciate a vehicle that reacts to the driver’s inputs and offers dynamic performance.
The key to its nuanced approach to practicality and dynamic behaviour is the latest technology from Volkswagen Group and the MQB-A long wheelbase architecture that underpins the large SUV.
The vehicle’s Dynamic Chassis Control (DCC) setup gives the perfect balance between a sporty feeling when you are behind the wheel, and a more comfortable ride when you need to cover longer distances, on different types of roads. The driver can select which setting they prefer, but the system can also adapt automatically, modifying the ride depending on the road surface and driving style.
The smoothness of the ride quality is matched by the performance, efficiency and reliability of the powertrain options. All engines benefit from direct-injection, turbocharging and start-stop technology and offer power outputs of between 150PS and 190PS.
Two petrol variants will be available: a four-cylinder 1.5 litre TSI unit that produces 150PS and is linked to a six-speed manual transmission powering the front wheels, and a 2.0 litre, 190PS offering mated to a seven-speed DSG gearbox and 4Drive total traction system. There are two diesel options, both 2.0 litre TDIs, with power outputs of 150PS and 190PS respectively. The 150PS variant can be connected to either a front-wheel drive, six-speed manual or seven-speed DSG with 4Drive system. The higher powered version is solely available in 4Drive/seven-speed DSG gearbox. Later, the SEAT Tarraco will also benefit from alternative powertrain technologies.
“The SEAT Tarraco is a masterpiece of functionality and flexibility, as it offers the space and flexibility customers expect from a large SUV. It is the sportiest vehicle in the segment from a design point of view and also thanks to the dynamic chassis control, which allows you to tune it to meet your driving needs,”said SEAT Executive Vice-President for Research and Development, Dr. Matthias Rabe.
The new SEAT Tarraco has all the driving assistance systems needed to make driving more comfortable and secure, even in more demanding driving environments. Well known systems such as Lane Assist and Front Assist including bicycle and pedestrian detection are standard in Europe, while systems such as Blind Spot Detection, Traffic Sign Recognition, Traffic Jam Assist, ACC (Adaptive Cruise Control), Light Assist and Emergency Assist are available as options.
Taking safety to the next level for SEAT, the Tarraco SUV also includes Emergency Call, Pre-crash Assist and Rollover Detection, meaning no matter what the situation, the vehicle is designed to meet the most demanding safety standards in order to make the large SUV the benchmark model in the segment.
Designed for life
Bigger dimensions inspired the design team to find a greater balance between aesthetic integrity and purposeful proportions. And even though the Tarraco SUV is 4,735mm long and 1,658mm tall, creating a huge interior space and an imposing exterior, the overall design implies a lightness and agility as well as a robustness and perception of space.
The front design gives a hint to SEAT’s new design language, with a more prominent grille, giving greater presence and character, and while the sharp Full LED headlights retain the company’s triangular signature they are set further into the body, giving a more focused appearance.
Lighting technology forms an important aspect of the Tarraco. The SUV uses 100% LED technology for both the exterior and interior as standard on both the Xcellence and Style trims, giving designers greater creative freedom and the customer cleaner, crisper lighting.
“I believe the new Tarraco gives a first strong impression when you see it for the first time because of its excellent proportions and elegant, yet sporty design. It delivers a feeling of proudness thanks to its assertive front end, a front end that gives you a hint to what future SEAT’s will look like,” said Alejandro Mesonero, Director of Design at SEAT, “And as we do in every vehicle we develop, we put a huge amount of our love and passion into the Tarraco’s detailing, following our philosophy: If it looks right, it is right.”
At the rear, where functionality is of immense importance, the emphasis is on a low loading area, but with a lighting concept to express the width and practicality of the SUV. The LED lighting also allows for dynamic rear indicators.
The SEAT Tarraco will be available with eight different colours : Dark Camouflage, Oryx White, Reflex Silver, Atlantic Blue, Indium Grey, Titanium Beige, Deep Black and Urano Grey.
Inside, designers have worked hard to create an interior that cocoons the occupants, using a horizontal line that spans the dashboard but also emphasises the width of the Tarraco, increasing the feeling of space in the cabin while at the same time inspiring confidence, safety and a level of quality normally found in the premium sector.
And as our world becomes increasingly digitised the Tarraco’s interior benefits from SEAT’s 10.25’’ Digital Cockpit, streamlining the delivery of important information to the driver, and an 8’’ large, floating HMI screen where occupants can access SEAT’s suite of connectivity options. Finally, when it comes to infotainment systems, The Tarraco will be the first SEAT to feature gesture control functions (when equipped with 8’’ Navigation Plus).
Pre-sales of the SEAT Tarraco will start in December.
SEAT is the only company that designs, develops, manufactures and markets cars in Spain. A member of the Volkswagen Group, the multinational has its headquarters in Martorell (Barcelona), exporting 80% of its vehicles, and is present in over 80 countries on all five continents. In 2017, SEAT obtained an after tax profit of 281 million euros, sold close to 470,000 cars and achieved a record turnover of more than 9.5 billion euros.
The SEAT Group employs more than 15,000 professionals and has three production centres – Barcelona, El Prat de Llobregat and Martorell, where it manufactures the highly successful Ibiza, Arona and Leon. Additionally, the company produces the Ateca and the Toledo in the Czech Republic, the Alhambra in Portugal and the Mii in Slovakia.
The multinational has a Technical Centre, which operates as a knowledge hub that brings together 1,000 engineers who are focussed on developing innovation for Spain’s largest industrial investor in R&D. SEAT already features the latest connectivity technology in its vehicle range and is currently engaged in the company’s global digitalisation process to promote the mobility of the future.
폭스바겐 소속의 스페인 메이커 세아트(SEAT)가 신형 레온(Leon)을 공개했다. 2012년 등장한 3세대 레온의 페이스리프트 모델로 세아트 모델 중 가장 높은 인기를 누리는 베스트셀러다.
폭스바겐 디자인 흐름에 맞춰 세아트 레온도 이전보다 날카롭게 바뀌었다. 범퍼와 헤드램프에 힘을 주어 스포티한 분위기이며 그릴의 너비를 40mm 확대해 존재감을 부각했다.
감성을 자극하는 실내도 새로운 변화다. 8인치 모니터를 통해 조작할 수 있는 새로운 LED 무드등을 장착했고 터치 형태를 채택해 센터페시아의 조작 스위치를 줄였다. 무난함이 싫다면 옵션으로 마련한 풀 디지털 클러스터도 좋은 선택이 될 것이다. 기술적으론 새롭게 추가된 2개의 엔진이 눈에 띈다. 1.0L 3기통 터보와 1.6L 디젤 터보가 그 주인공인데 모두 113마력의 출력을 낸다.
이 밖에, 시속 60km까지 주행 중 스스로 멈추거나 가속하는 트래픽 잼 어시스트 기능을 비롯해 능동형 크루즈 컨트롤 시스템, 평행과 직각 주차를 지원하는 최신 주차 보조 시스템 등 첨단 장비도 꼼꼼하게 챙겼다.
SEAT is continuing its relentless product offensive with the unveiling of the New Leon, ahead of its launch in early 2017. The latest incarnation of the Barcelona-based brand’s best-selling model already has a multi-award-winning recipe , blending key ingredients of comfort, technology and quality, with emotional design and driving pleasure. The successful “Leon formula” Is now having a drop of extra technology and design added to the mix.
“With the New SEAT Leon, we want to continue the success story of one of SEAT’s most emblematic models, including further technologies in terms of driving assistance systems, safety systems and, of course, connectivity” added the Vice-President for R&D, Dr. Matthias Rabe.
A sharper, even more harmonious design
Without a doubt, one of the main reasons for the current Leon’s success has been its striking and high quality design, so, for 2017, some subtle changes have been added. SEAT Design Director, Alejandro Mesonero Romanos, affirmed, “The Leon is a very attractive model and it isn’t necessary to change its image, only reinforce it, refresh it. The objective is to harmonise all parts of it, in particular the front and the rear, with the sides of the car.”
For that reason, the front and rear have sharper, more assertive lines than the current model, with incisive lateral lines that are less distinct at the front and rear. The intention has been to emphasise this sharp image, achieving it with a more coherent look. It is noticeable especially in the new bumper design. Another goal was to increase the perceived size of the car, stretching the grille an extra 40mm in a richer chrome, like that more traditionally found on more expensive, larger cars. The character has also been reinforced as much inside as outside in terms of quality. It is worth noting too, that the new Leon is also even quieter than before. Inside the car, the ambient lighting LEDs’ intensity can be regulated as the driver wishes from the newly designed eight-inch screen, which eliminates the need for many of the buttons and dials on the current model.
The new, improved exterior lights are particularly noteworthy thanks to new rear lights and headlights complete with Full-LED technology. LED technology has also been used in the indicators and fog lights.
The latest in driver assistance and connectivity technology
Following the launch of the Ateca with such a vast range of driver assistance systems, it’s now the Leon’s turn to take onboard the latest technological developments. For example, Traffic Jam Assist, a function that offers great comfort in traffic with frequent and intermittent stops. Thanks to the combination of Lane Assist and ACC, in traffic jams the car manoeuvres, accelerates and brakes automatically within the limits of the system. Up to 37 mph, the system provides assistance with speed while keeping the car in the correct lane. Another added feature is the Pedestrian Protection System which recognises vehicles, as well as pedestrians, ensuring that safety is paramount both in the city and on the motorway.
Further new systems include Traffic Sign Recognition, Blind Spot Detection, and the most advanced parking assist technology with both bay and parallel parking, Emergency Assist and High Beam Assist. The camera and navigation systems have been improved too, to now recognise a higher number of traffic signs. The New SEAT Leon also includes a new centre console with an Electric Parking Brake.
The New SEAT Leon offers the very highest level of connectivity. Its myriad systems include the latest generation of Easy Connect infotainment systems, SEAT Full Link and the exclusive SEAT ConnectApp that comes with voice recognition and gesture control technology, allowing functions to be activated with just a finger swipe on the touchscreen. The Media System Plus, with its eight-inch screen, is the highlight of the former. The New SEAT Leon has, for the very first time, a Connectivity Box in the central console that enables wireless smartphone charging. Not forgetting SEAT Full Link, which opens up the world of connectivity for users of virtually all smartphones. Alongside MirrorLink, Full Link also incorporates the functions of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. For areas with low satellite reception, the system also comes equipped with a GSM signal booster.
New engines and the new XCELLENCE trim
The new SEAT Leon will be offered with five trim levels at UK launch: S, SE Dynamic, SE Technology, FR and the new XCELLENCE. The new highlight is the latter with its distinctive upmarket feel, including luxurious upholstery (Alcantara and leather as an optional), extensive trim elements and multi-colour ambient interior lighting. On the outside, it gleams with a chrome design front grille, new front and rear bumpers, and also comes with rear LED indicators. On the inside, it benefits from an aluminium XCELLENCE kickplate, LED interior illumination pack and KESSY (Keyless Enter and Go).
The New SEAT Leon’s range of Euro 6 compliant engines satisfies a wide range of needs. The TDI engine range begins with a 1.6 115 PS and goes up to the 2.0 184 PS. In terms of petrol power, the New Leon’s options range from 110 to 180 PS, with a new 1.0 litre TSI three-cylinder 115 PS for the UK being the latest addition.
When it comes to gearboxes, the range includes five- or six-speed manual units, all well as double-clutch DSG with six- or seven-speeds.
The New SEAT Leon will be available in the three existing body types; five-door, SC (Sports Coupé) and ST (Sports Tourer).
In summary, the New Leon boasts an updated design, an even broader range of efficient engines, plus, a raft of advanced technology, to keep it at the top of the class.
A new Leon CUPRA will be available in the near future, complete with its own surprises. But that’s a story for another day.

스페인 자동차 메이커 세아트가 현대 투싼하고 비슷한 크기의 소형 SUV 아테카(Ateca)를 공개했다. 정식 데뷔는 3월에 열리는 2016 제네바 모터쇼로 예정되어 있고 투싼 이외에 기아 스포티지, 포드 쿠가, 마쓰다 CX-5 등과 경쟁한다.
모기업인 폭스바겐의 전폭적인 지원으로 태어난 아테가의 플랫폼은 폭스바겐 2세대 티구안과 같은 MQB 플랫폼이다. 파워트레인 역시 티구안과 비슷해 1.0리터 3기통 가솔린 터보(115마력), 1.4리터 4기통 가솔린 터보(150마력), 1.6리터 디젤 터보 115마력), 2.0리터 디젤 터보(150마력, 190마력) 엔진과 6단 수동 또는 7단 듀얼클러치 변속기를 사용한다. 굴림방식은 FF가 기본으로 옵션으로 AWD도 가능한다.
플랫폼은 공유했지만 디자인은 티구안과 큰 차이를 보인다. 각진 헤드램프와 테일램프와 역동적인 사이드 라인에서 세아트 특유의 스포티한 디자인이 느껴진다.
안전과 편의장비도 폭스바겐 그룹의 것을 대대적으로 받아들였다. 복잡한 도심에서 저속주행할 때 자동으로 속도를 줄이고 스티어링 동작을 이루는 트래픽 잼 어시스트 기능과 후측방 추돌 경고 시스템, 차선이탈 경고 시스템, 교통표지판 인식 기능 등을 트림별로 기본 혹은 옵션으로 제공한다.
Tonight, SEAT unveiled its first SUV in Barcelona. The new Ateca is a unique combination of distinctive design, dynamic driving fun, urban versatility and compelling utility. First-class connectivity, innovative assistance systems and highly efficient engines are among its technology highlights ensuring Ateca will be one of the most innovative SUVs in the segment. Outstanding quality, precision production and attractive value-for-money combine to make it a true SEAT. Key to its appeal however, is its agile and precise handling – the Ateca makes every day and every mile that little bit more rewarding.
“The SEAT Ateca is perfect for an urban lifestyle. It possesses stunning design and dynamics, and boasts compelling quality and utility. But above all, the Ateca exudes unmistakable character,” says Luca de Meo, President of SEAT, S.A. “Our first SUV marks the start of a new era for SEAT. The Ateca is a clear development of the Leon DNA and will drive forward the success of the range. SEAT is a brand on the move.”
At UK launch this September, Ateca will be available in a wide range of variants. The choice of powerful turbocharged TSI petrol and TDI diesel engines spans from 115 PS to 190 PS, with either front-wheel or all-wheel-drive, mated to manual or dual-clutch DSG transmissions. The extensive array of technology options extends from full-LED headlights through a broad portfolio of assistance systems, including some of the very latest Group technology, such as Traffic Jam Assist and Emergency Assist, right through to a package of high-end infotainment systems with eight-inch touchscreens and Full Link connectivity. Three trim levels will offer colours and top-quality materials to suit every taste, with the top-of-the-range being the Ateca XCELLENCE.
“We have put together an amazing package of technologies and innovations for the Ateca – delivering more safety and utility but, above all, the most dynamic driving experience possible. We will set a whole new standard within the segment with its light-footed, precise handling,” says Dr. Matthias Rabe, Vice President of SEAT, S.A. responsible for Research and Development. “It is incredibly fun to drive. And we have combined this driving experience with compelling utility, making the Ateca a hugely versatile companion for an active urban life.”
In keeping with SEAT tradition, the Ateca derives its name from Spanish geography, this time taking inspiration from the village of the same name which lies in the west of Zaragoza, right in the heart of the brand’s homeland.
Design – 100 per cent SEAT and yet 100 per cent SUV
The Ateca’s design is utterly unmistakable. As an SUV, too, the typical SEAT design language is a striking combination of dynamism and functionality. Many elements, like the trapezoidal grille, the side blisters with their sharp creases and the triangular light signatures, are typical of sister models such as the Leon. Yet every single detail has been carefully developed to the next level for the Ateca.
The front end of the Ateca is 100 per cent SEAT and yet 100 per cent SUV. The large, high grille brims with confidence, while the sharply defined lights and substantial air intakes leave no doubt as to the Ateca’s dynamic credentials. At the same time, it maintains a muscular stance that exudes solidity and reliability.
Full-LED headlamps with a clear signature
Typical SEAT features include the optional full-LED headlights with their upmarket light colour and excellent luminance. Combined with the triangular signature of the daytime running lights, the overall impact is utterly unmistakable. In the Ateca, the indicator lamps are also an integral part of this signature.
State-of-the-art technology and an emotional experience go hand-in-hand with the SEAT Ateca. One example is the “welcome light”. As soon as you unlock the doors, LEDs in the door mirrors illuminate the area below the doors, like so-called “puddle lighting”, projecting the Ateca’s name onto the ground.
Interior conveys refined sporting character
The interior harmonises perfectly with the exterior design, combining a refined and elegant, yet still dynamic character, with that unique feeling of solidity and safety which is so highly prized by SUV drivers.
The cockpit has a horizontal line with a clear driver focus. The controls are grouped closely together, while the read outs, such as the infotainment display measuring up to eight inches, are just a brief glance away. The high centre console is a further example of how well the Ateca combines the SUV sense of solidity with the sporty feeling of a shortened gearstick.
Excellent use of space, with plenty of room
At 4.36 metres in length, the Ateca offers some of the best use of space in the segment, with a boot that holds 510 litres in its standard configuration, or, 485 litres in versions with all-wheel-drive.
Technology – innovative highlights in the Ateca
Once the driver is in the car, a ring of light surrounding the illuminated start button pulsates like a heartbeat, indicating the Ateca is all set for its next adventure. SEAT Drive Profile too, is on-hand for adapting the car to the current driving situation, road conditions and personal tastes.
The range of innovative driver assistance systems is extensive. One example is Traffic Jam Assist: This assistance function makes progress in heavy stop-start traffic far more bearable. At traffic jam speeds, the Ateca steers, accelerates and brakes automatically within the system boundaries. At higher speeds of up to 37 mph, the system provides support with speed control and lane keeping. A new safety function is Emergency Assist: if the driver remains inactive beyond a certain period, the vehicle issues first a visual then an acoustic warning, followed finally by a brief pulse of the brakes. If there is still no reaction, the Ateca slows down to a standstill, while staying in lane. Rounding off its array of additional support technologies are ACC with Front Assist, Traffic Sign Recognition, Blind Spot Detection, Rear Cross Traffic Alert and Top View Camera.
The highest level of connectivity
Connectivity, the constant connection with the digital world, is a major part of a modern, urban lifestyle for many people. The SEAT Ateca offers the very highest level in this crucial area – with the latest generation of Easy Connect infotainment systems, SEAT Full Link and the exclusive SEAT ConnectApp: Media System Plus, with its eight-inch screen, is the highlight, the Connectivity Box in the centre console of the Ateca enabling wireless smartphone charging for the first time in a SEAT. SEAT Full Link is the connectivity world for users of virtually all smartphones. Alongside MirrorLink®, Full Link also incorporates the functions of Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto®.
Dynamics – Unique driving fun
Impressive driving fun is at the core of the SEAT brand. The Leon in particular is a unique combination of precision and agility, comfort and safety, as confirmed by enthusiastic customer reactions and numerous comparison tests carried out by journalists across Europe. The Ateca is no less impressive when it comes to fulfilling this promising combination. With its compact character, powerful engines and perfectly tuned suspension, it offers performance and handling that sets a new benchmark among its SUV competitors. And it fits an urban and versatile lifestyle perfectly.
The Ateca’s dynamic driving experience comes courtesy of a suite of state-of-the-art engines – all of them turbocharged. Ranging from 115 PS to 190 PS with outstanding torque figures across the board, they meet every possible performance need. The array of diesel engines starts with the 1.6 TDI 115 PS. The 2.0 TDI is available with 150 and 190 PS. Fuel consumption figures range from 56 to 66 mpg, its CO2 figures from 112 to 131 g/km. The entry level petrol engine is the 1.0 TSI with 115 PS. The 1.4 TSI comes with cylinder deactivation under partial load and produces 150 PS. The consumption and emissions figures for these engines are between 46 and 53 mpg and CO2 figures of 112 to 131 grams.
The bodyshell is outstanding not only for its wide-ranging versatility, but also for its intelligent lightweight design. Incredibly stiff, the Ateca is also among the lightest vehicles in its segment, which secures an agile driving experience not only for urban traffic conditions.
세아트는 국내팬들에겐 다소 낯선 메이커죠. 하지만 홈그라운드인 스페인과 서유럽에선 꽤 인기 좋은 메이커입니다. 게다가 폭스바겐 식구가 되면서 내실까지 갖추게 되어 앞으로의 전망이 긍정적입니다. 이런 세아트에서 최근 레온 쿠프라 280 울티메이트(SEAT Leon SC CUPRA 280 Ultimate) 모델을 선보였습니다. 골프와 같은 MQB 플랫폼으로 태어났고 크기도 골프와 비슷합니다. 이번에 나온 레온 쿠프라 280은 세아트판 골프 R이라고 불러도 손색없는 모델입니다.
이름에서 알 수 있듯이 2.0 터보로 최고출력 280마력을 냅니다. 골프 R도 같죠. 하지만 AWD 형태인 골프 R과 달리 레온 쿠프라 280은 전륜구동입니다. 그리고 최근 독일 뉘르부르크링 노르트슐라이페 랩타임 7:58.12 라는 초유의 기록을 남겼습니다. 양산 앞바퀴굴림 중 최고의 기록이죠. 참고로 BMW M3는 8분 5초입니다.
With a record-breaking time of 7:58.12 minutes, the SEAT Leon ST CUPRA 280 is the fastest estate car around the Nürburgring Nordschleife. Making its world debut at this year's Wörthersee Treffen in Austria, the latest addition to the CUPRA stable is set to make the hearts of the expected 200,000 car fans and tuners from a host of different countries beat that little bit faster. Showcasing a total of five impressive variants from the Leon range, SEAT will travel from Martorell in Spain to Reifnitz, some 1,515 kilometres away.
An approachable star – the SEAT Leon ST Cupra
On 13th May, there will be 280 PS rolling through the small town, where the SEAT Leon ST CUPRA 280 will celebrate its debut at the legendary meeting. Speaking about the record which he set, using the standard front-wheel-drive production estate with manual transmission and Performance Pack, Spanish racing driver and SEAT brand ambassador Jordi Gené, said, “It was an indescribable feeling to get the best out of this car and to be the first to achieve this record,” said Jordi Gené. The sports tourer benefits significantly from the Limited Front Slip Differential (VAQ) of the SEAT Leon CUPRA 280 and the six-speed manual gearbox – systems that enable it to ensure a secure grip on the road, even under difficult conditions. “The Leon ST CUPRA reinforces that an estate car doesn’t have to be a compromise. This record time is not only another symbol of our claim ‘Technology to Enjoy’, but also sets new standards. The SEAT Leon ST CUPRA is a sports car for the whole family,” said Dr. Matthias Rabe, SEAT Vice President for Research and Development.
At this year’s cult event, the the Leon ST CUPRA 280 will also be showcased with the “Black” Performance Pack. Painted in Dynamic Grey, it is sure to cut a sleek figure with its 19-inch alloy wheels, BREMBO high-performance braking system and body-colour side skirts. Through its sublime blend of power and comfort, the SEAT Leon ST CUPRA 280 achieves a perfect balance which appeals to both the heart and the head. Not only is there space for the whole family, the powerful 280 PS engine also delivers thrilling performance.
Traditionally, SEAT shows something extreme at the Wörthersee Treffen and this year is no exception. Austrian racing driver Mario Dablander, who is a touring car racing driver in the 2015 SEAT Leon Eurocup, will bring his SEAT Leon CUP RACER to the event after the race in Portugal.
The extraordinary in the ordinary – SEAT Leon SC Cupra and SEAT Leon Cupra
This year, SEAT is presenting two particularly attention-grabbing models in Dynamic Grey and Blanco Nevada paintwork. The SEAT Leon SC CUPRA 280 provides visual impact with an “Orange” Performance Pack. The three-door sets sporty accents with the orange front grille, colour-coordinated mirrors and orange rims against the flat grey paintwork. In addition, the high-performance brake system, along with the 19-inch high-performance tyres and side skirts likewise deliver a strong presence. The Leon five-door CUPRA 280 is no less impressive. The Blanco Nevada colour concept, in combination with the Black Line package, gives the model a mean look. Particularly eye-catching are the entry sills at the front, rear side spoilers and the 19-inch alloy wheels painted in high-gloss black. Beyond their sporty design and 280 PS performance, both model variants are also optionally equipped with the well-known highly innovative assistance systems.
폭스바겐 소속의 스페인 브랜드 세아트가 2015 제네바 모터쇼에 20V20 컨셉을 내놓았습니다. 내부적으로 '비전 2020'을 뜻하는 모델인데 군더더기 없이 매끈한 보디가 돋보입니다.
4도어 스포츠 쿠페와 SUV의 특징을 버무렸다고 하는데 요약하면 좀 더 스포티한 SUV로 볼 수 있네요. 길이 4,659mm에 20인치 휠을 달았고 헤드램프는 최신 LED 기술을 접목했습니다. 이와는 별개지만 세아트는 내년에 콤팩트 SUV를 양산할 계획입니다. 디자인 참고 정도는 되겠네요.
Geneva, 03/03/2015. - SEAT has its eyes firmly set on the year 2020. The Spanish carmaker revealed its strategic vision for the future in Geneva today with the 20V20 showcar (meaning Vision 2020), an SUV that sets the stage for the brand’s future and puts forward the new design language. “The 20V20 shows our ambition”, said SEAT President Jürgen Stackmann today during the company’s presentation at the Geneva Motor Show. “It is our guiding star and the lighthouse for our development for the coming five-year period”.
Stackmann emphasised that “SEAT will be applying the winning Leon product formula to the entire range. We’ve taken all product decisions to consolidate the successful path started with LEON and we have finalised our product plan for the coming years. SEAT will shift focus from the small car to the compact car category. The centre of gravity shifts upwards entering big, fast growing and more profitable segments”. In addition, Stackmann reaffirmed the brand’s commitment to enhancing connectivity, which is backed by the agreement announced yesterday with SAMSUNG.
The President of SEAT also announced that the brand continues having a positive momentum in the first two months of the year compared to the same period in 2014: “To date, our global sales have grown 7.5%”. Stackmann underscored that in 2014 SEAT sales improved by more than 10% for the second consecutive year and placed emphasis on the big EU markets, including Germany, Spain, the United Kingdom and Italy, where the brand displayed double-digit growth.
The success of the Leon family explains the brand’s surge in sales. “For the first time in our history we have sold more Leon than Ibiza. The Leon family is now complete”, summarised Stackmann, who announced the world premiere of SEAT’s first compact SUV at next year’s Geneva Motor Show.
20V20, SEAT’s strategic vision
The SEAT 20V20 combines the dynamic silhouette of a four-door sports coupé with the refinement of an SUV and the versatility and utility of a mid-size estate car. At a length of 4,659 metres and with its 20-inch wheels and the determined expression conveyed by its adaptive full-LED headlamps, this sports utility has a robust stance that is in no way aggressive, while the interior offers a generous amount of space and premium ambience for five. In addition, a comprenhensive package of driver assistance systems raises the levels of comfort and safety even further. The array of drive options is multi-faceted, ranging from the high-performance TSI and TDI motors to plug-in hybrids. The power is delivered to the wheels via the DSG transmission and electronically controlled all-wheel drive.
