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.

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.
“With the new Leon Cupra, the SEAT brand is once more taking a major leap forward. The Cupra is a refined, high-performance car that combines its expressive dynamics with relaxed long-distance comfort and a compelling, high-quality feel,” says Jürgen Stackmann, CEO of SEAT S.A. “Driving fun and great design comes with every Leon, but the new Cupra displays SEAT expertise in a whole new dimension. We are proud of this new brand icon and certain of its success.”
The new Seat Leon Cupra will be priced at £26,940 (about $44k at the current exchange rates).
The new Leon Cupra is distinguished by a new front end that features large air intakes and full-LED headlamps. The rear end is updated with a new skirt that houses a diffuser and two oval tailpipes.
Also, when compared to the rest of the Cupra models, the new 280 version gets an Aerodynamic Pack that includes a new spoiler on the rear roof edge, black exterior mirror housing and new 19-inch wheels with a titanium paint finish and Cupra lettering on the brake calipers.
Emotional design is a great strength of the Leon family. For the new Cupra, this has been developed one step further. The new front end with its large air intakes and full-LED headlamps ensures a powerful look, as do the rear skirt with its diffuser effect and the two oval end pipes. The alloy wheels are exclusive to the Cupra, while the red brake callipers and tinted side and rear windshields underscore its individuality.
The focus of the interior is on the Cupra sports steering wheel in its own unique design complete with shifting paddles for the optional DSG transmission, as well as the top sports seats in dark grey Alcantara finished with white stitching. Black full-leather upholstery, likewise with white stitching, is also available. For extreme lateral grip, there are optional bucket seats. The pedals and entry sills are made from aluminium.
The Cupra 280 is visually differentiated by its unique 19-inch wheels with a titanium paint finish, the Aerodynamic Pack with the spoiler on the rear roof edge, Cupra lettering on the brake callipers and black exterior mirror housings. The trim elements in the cockpit of this top sporty variant are a deep glossy black (or, alternatively, classic chrome).
For the interior the Cupra 280 will add sports seats in standard dark grey Alcantara finished with white stitching or optional black full-leather upholstery with the same white stitching.
Other updates include a sport steering wheel with shifter paddles for the optional DSG transmission, plus aluminum pedals and entry sills.
