Why Cupra gives the SEAT Leon a sporty edge

One of SEAT’s finest vehicles, the Leon, is even better in Cupra form. If you’re looking for a hatchback that gives you more, take a look at what Cupra can offer. A SEAT Cupra is a performance road car that offers all the practicality of its regular counterpart, and turns it into a hot hatch.

The SEAT Leon Cupra is installed with a 2.0-litre 296hp petrol engine. When paired with six-speed dual-clutch transmission, this delivers a peak torque of 380Nm, 0-60mph in roughly 5.4 seconds and a maximum speed of 155mph. It also produces a combined 42.2mpg figure.

The newest SEAT performance edition is the Leon Cupra R, which comes with revamped suspension and aerodynamic enhancements. It also has an increased power output – 10bhp greater than is offered by the Leon Cupra.

Furthermore, the Cupra R is fitted with larger wheel arches and side skirts – and a more expansive bumper. It also features a conspicuous tailgate spoiler, an impressive-looking diffuser and two circular tailpipes, each helping to really mark this particular model out.
