DF Automotive Enhances The Plain Seat Leon ST With 207 HP

The bridge between the FR and the Cupra has widened once Seat introduced the 280 and 290 variants, but DF Automotive decided to narrow the gap.

Unless we’re talking about the Cupra variant, the Seat Leon ST is an ordinary family station wagon, with its most potent petrol variant (the FR) boasting 179 PS (177 hp) and 250 Nm (184 lbf-ft) from a 1.8 TSI engine. Admirable, but far away from the standards imposed by its more powerful siblings.

DF Automotive, however, made the FR a little bit more competitive by upping its power output to 210 PS (207 hp) and an impressive 310 Nm (227 lb-ft) of torque. The German aftermarket specialists also installed a set of humongous 8,5 x 20-inch OZ Superturismo rims, wrapped in 235/30/R20 tires, and a Variant 1 KW coil-over suspension system that only lowers the vehicle between 30 to 70 mm in the front and 50 to 90 mm in the back.

This Leon ST FR is undoubtedly the cheap, cheerful and sporty alternative to the overpowered estates available nowadays, especially as it would make the perfect balanced B-road grocery getter.
