German designer ABT, a specialist in VW group models, presented its new creation for the Spanish brand: the ST Cupra 300 Carbon Edition. A SEAT León modified from top to bottom, capable of generating up to 370 hp thanks to a new ECU. It will come as no surprise that after this potentiation the car can face the largest and strongest sports compact segment.The power increase can be requested for any version of the León Cupra, but it is in the four-wheel drive ST that you will notice the increase in performance. At least in the times of 0 to 100 km / h, that all brands so much strive to stand out.It is possible that cars like the BMW M140 xDrive or the Mercedes-AMG A 45 4Matic would see each other in a tightening situation if they had to face the ST Cupra 300 Carbon Edition. Taking into account the specifications of the factories, the Spanish model has nothing to be ashamed of. The AMG has only 11 hp and 15 Nm more than the preparation of the ABT and the BMW delivers 40 Nm more, but is left behind in terms of power with 30 hp less.To this we must add that the SEAT León ST 4drive Cupra is the lightest of the three with 1,545 kg. Both the BMW and the Mercedes-AMG weigh a little more with 1,615 kg and 1,555 kg, respectively.With whom the SEAT maybe has more problems to measure forces is with the Audi RS3. This compact German sports car is the most powerful of the four, with 400 hp and 480 Nm of maximum torque thanks to its five-cylinder 2.5 TFSI engine. In addition, it is the best time announces in the sprint from 0 to 100 km / h, with 4.1 seconds. The BMW has to settle for a 4.4 seconds mark and the Mercedes-AMG 4.2 seconds. ABT has not revealed the official performance of the ST Cupra 300 Carbon Edition.In addition to adding its own ECU, the ABT offers an exhaust system with HJS sport catalytic converter, which makes your sound more sporty and serious. 18- or 20-inch alloy wheels in different colors and designs can also be chosen, which can fit high performance tires. But what is more important, at least in relation to the dynamic behavior of the car, are the sports stabilizer bars developed by the ABT, designed to reduce any possible body balance.As the name suggests, the preparation ST Cupra 300 Carbon Edition is limited to 300 units worldwide. It should not be confused with the special edition that SEAT launched in the UK, which although it also carries the Carbon Edition surname and includes several parts in carbon fiber, does not present modifications to increase its power.

Its launch coincides with the announcement of the first Cupra model as an independent sub-brand of SEAT, the Cupra Ateca.It is curious that the Spanish brand decided to introduce this model with the SEAT emblem and not have made it with the newly-released Cupra.

2018 – SEAT TOLEDO
SEAT continues to reduce the supply of its veteran sedan. The line of the SEAT Toledo again restructured and loses two mechanics that occupied a relevant position. One of the most important changes is that the diesel engine disappears. Toledo is no longer available with the 1.6 liter TDI 115 hp engine. It was the only diesel block he kept hanging on the line and now he finally disappears.Another of the withdrawals was that of the most powerful petrol engine, the 1.4-liter TSI 125-hp block that was associated with a DSG dual-clutch seven-speed automatic transmission. In addition to lowering several steps to the top-of-the-line option, the Spanish model also will not offer an automatic version. All engines will be coupled to a six-speed manual transmission.Therefore, after removing these engines, SEAT will only offer two mechanics to customers interested in purchasing a SEAT Toledo. And as previously reported, both blocks will be gasoline. The Toledo line access version will continue to be fixed by the 1.0 liter TSI 95 hp and 160 Nm engine, while one step up will be the 1.0 liter TSI engine with 110 hp and 200 Nm.What does not change are the finishing levels available.
