Fascinating dynamics, state-of-the-art technology, stunning design matched with compelling efficiency and perfect everyday usability – the new Seat Leon Cupra embodies the SEAT brand values in the best possible way.
With up to 206 kW / 280 PS, the new Cupra is not only the clear top model in the very successful Leon family, it is also the brand’s most powerful series-production car. And the fastest – the drive and the chassis of the Leon Cupra guarantee precision driving fun of the highest order.
With its extensive equipment and excellent quality, the new Cupra offers exceptionally good value-for-money. Right from the start, the Leon Cupra will be offered as a five-door and as the Leon SC Cupra Sport Coupé with three doors.
A concentrated package of hi-tech guarantees the enormous performance of the new Cupra. At the top is the all-new 2.0 TSI engine with dual injection and variable camshaft timing. Depending on the version, it delivers an output of 195 kW / 265 PS or 206 kW / 280 PS. The DCC dynamic chassis control, the front differential lock, the progressive steering, the Cupra Drive Profile and the standard-fit full-LED headlamps are further examples of its state-of-the-art technologies.
Cupra stands for power, performance, dynamics – and the new Leon Cupra fulfills all these promises perfectly. The Cupra 280 with optional DSG transmission, the brand’s top model catapults from zero to 100 km/h in just 5.7 seconds, and in 5.8 seconds with the manual gearbox (Leon SC). The regulated top speed of 250 km/h is a matter of course. The maximum torque of 350 Newton metres across the wide range of 1,750 to 5,300 rpm guarantees impressive pulling power in every situation. And the Cupra with 195 kW / 265 PS and a maximum torque of 350 Newton metres is no more than a fraction slower. Its acceleration time stands at 5.9 seconds with manual transmission and 5.8 seconds with DSG (Leon SC).
Against this, the new Leon Cupra is astonishingly efficient. The average fuel consumption for both power variants is just 6.4 litres with DSG and 6.6 litres with the manual gearbox. This equates to CO2 figures of just 149 and 154 grams. And, compared with its predecessor, it means a reduction in emissions of 41 grams.
