Seat Leon Cupra 2017
The Seat Leon Cupra is the most powerful road-going Seat ever.
There are two body styles (three and five door) with two different power outputs – either 261bhp or 276bhp. Both use the VW Group’s 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine – the same one you’ll find in the Golf GTI – but Seat’s engineers have tweaked the boost pressure, altered the cylinder head and generally fiddled around under the bonnet to give all the extra power.
There will be a four-wheel drive option but only on the ST estate model to begin with, though the Spanish carmaker hasn’t ruled out the possibility of bringing out a four-wheel drive hatch version.
Alongside the technical changes, the refreshed Cupra gets more driver assistance systems as standard, with the tally now including Traffic Jam Assist, Lane Assist, Adaptive Cruise Control and Pedestrian Protection.
The car’s Media System Plus infotainment system, displayed via an 8in touchscreen screen, is now joined by smartphone wireless charging and a phone signal-boosting GSM antenna.
UK sales will commence in March 2017. Pricing will be revealed/confirmed closer to this time, but a slight increase on the current Leon Cupra 290’s £28,680 starting price is expected.
