  • The Leon X-PERIENCE helps ring in the New Year 2015 from the plains of New Zealand
  • On paved or dirt roads, this model adapts perfectly to all types of terrain and weather conditions

The Leon X-PERIENCE rang in the New Year more than 19,300 kilometres away from Martorell by exploring New Zealand, a country with the world’s most spectacular scenery. Driving over broad plains, on mountain roads, along the coast and through volcanic landscape dotted with natural hot springs, the model proved it is a match for any terrain. Located in the south west of the Pacific Ocean, the Leon X-PERIENCE successfully adapted to one of the planet’s most extreme and demanding environments, on the other side of the world.
