SEAT Leon Technology to enjoy
In this respect, JE Design offers an extension for the front bumper made of three pieces by 833 euros, by way of lower spoiler, as well as side skirts (322 euros) and a new rear diffuser (572 euros). This last piece is exclusive for the León ST, while the front and skirts can adapt equally to León FR and Cupra's three and five doors.
The ST Leon Cupra chassis can emphasize its sporty character for 191 euros through some springs that reduce its height 20 mm, compatible with series damping. JE Design also offers a suspension full DCC type coilover signed by KW, which lowers its height up to 45 additional mm, at a cost of 2,299 euros - these prices do not include taxes or installation.
If you want to take advantage of the sound of the engine 2.0 TSI, JE Design offers a sport exhaust in stainless steel quad output, which emphasizes its sound in mode 'Cupra' within driving profiles: 2.499 euros it costs. There is also a site for (274 euros each) alloy wheels, without modifying measures of series (19-inch diameter tyres 235/45), black or matte black finish bright.
Finally, we could not miss more power, thanks to a modified electronic management, engine 2.0 TSI reaches the 350 HP with a maximum torque of 440 Nm. With a price of 2,299 euros, includes warranty by two years with engine and transmission problems stemming from its installation.
What is better, the Renault Megane 2016 or Seat Leon? French is the newcomer, with just one weeks on the market, in its fourth generation, the Renault Megane 2016 is planted as a tough opponent with aspirations to the top of the best selling Spanish. For its part, the Seat León 2013, in its third generation, is a fully seated model in the market of the powerful Volkswagen Group.
In this comparison we will put aside the bumper range versions, since the León Seat Cupra is a fact, but Renault Megane RS 2017 has not yet reached and would not be fair to confront a model that does not yet exist, technically. Let's know what are the best tricks of the Megane and the lion.
From the mighty Volkswagen Group we have the Seat Leon 2013, a model that, in its third generation, is already causing havoc in the Spanish market thanks to its high sales volume. It was presented at the Salon of Paris 2012 and features a fresh design that makes it to be very present between the purchase options. I venture to highlight the headlights with LED technology integrated as one of the best components of the lion.
Let's talk about dimensions. Seat Leon has a length, in its variant of five doors, 4.263 mm, a width of 1,816 mm and a height of 1,459 mm, while the wheelbase is 2,636 mm. This allows you to have a trunk of 380 liters which can be extended up to the 1,210 litres if the rear seats fold.
Available in the compact seat mechanics are four gasoline and four diesel engines, as well as an alternative to LPG. We have a 1.2 TSI with 110 HP, a 1.4 TSI with 125 and 150 HP, and a powerful 1.8 TSI with 180 HP to FR. finish in terms of diesel, we can find a 1.6 TDI with 90 and 110 HP and a 2.0 TDI with 150 and 184 HP for the LPG option BRO is a 1.4 TGI GNC 110 HP. These propellers are also linked to a six relations manual transmission or an automatic dual-clutch DSG, while all are front-wheel drive.
The interior is driver-oriented and finishes improved over its predecessor. New Seat Leon multimedia systems are another of their bets. The Basic includes the operating system 'Easy Connect' touchscreen. From here it evolves to 'Average System Touch', 'Average System Colour' and 'Average System Plus' systems. Prices start at EUR 18.980 without discounts or promotions and reach the 28.720 euros in the FR TDI 184 HP Variant.
And from France comes the Renault Megane 2016, the fourth generation of the popular compact of the signing of the diamond which was presented at the last show of Frankfurt 2015. It carries just a few weeks on the market, but already it is postulated as one of the opponents harder to beat. Despite this, still not have been submitted other variants of body or potent Mégane RS 2017, even though we know that there will be three doors or Cabrio version.
In size, we can see that the new Renault Mégane is slightly longer than the lion, specifically recorded 4.359 length mm, width is 1.814 mm and height is lower, with 1.447 mm. For its part, the wheelbase is 2,669 mm, given the dimensions of his body. In terms of capabilities, it has a capacity of 384 litres which is expandable to 1,247 litres when the rear seats fold.
In the section on engines, new Megane 2016 options are slightly limited compared to the lion, although this is justifiable given the age of this generation. It features three petrol and three diesel engines while next year will be a diesel hybrid variant which data we don't know at the moment. We find Motors TCe 100, 130 to 205 HP GT finishing, and turbo diesel dCi 90, 110 and 130 HP. The advanced system FourControl, a steering rear axle, with the GT variant will only be available and for the moment.
And in terms of technology, the Renault Megane 2016 launches a large display of 8.7 inches in the center console, the Multusense system that allows to control the Steering response and the accelerator pedal, among other functions, as well as four driving modes. Prices are another advantage for the Megane, since they depart from 16,600 euros and will not exceed the 26.900 EUR 205 HP GT Variant.
Time to draw conclusions and, at this point, that I decide that victory in this face-to-face Renault Megane 2016 takes her. Not by their property
