The power is transmitted to the front wheels using a 6 speed dual-clutch semi-manual DSG gearbox. The front suspension features MacPherson style geometry, while the at the rear the car has a Multi-link suspension.
As from 2014 the SEAT León Eurocup weekend is made up of two sprint races of between 50–60 km. Before these there are two 30 minute free-practice sessions and a 30-minute qualifying session which determines the grid for the first race. The grid for the second race is determined by the results of the first race.
The format features standing starts for both races. The drivers are only allowed to use 8 marked tires per event (Q+R1+R2).
