LEON ST CUPRA: Owners love the design.
THE new Leon ST CUPRA is a unique combination of top performance, style and utility, claim the Spanish manufacturers.
Acceleration from zero to 100 km/h being just 6.0 seconds combined with 1,470 litres of load space in the estate car go some way to back that claim up.
Among journalists and customers alike, the SEAT Leon CUPRA is much admired as a Sport Coupé and as a five-door. In the trade media across Europe, the CUPRA immediately became a consistent winner in comparison tests with owners said to love its design.
Jürgen Stackmann, President of SEAT SA said: “The new Leon ST CUPRA is the perfect complement to our high-performance model line-up. The combination of refined performance and expressive dynamics with relaxed long-distance comfort and compelling utility make it utterly unique.
“The Leon ST CUPRA shows the SEAT brand values at their best. We are proud of the technical excellence and quality it conveys.”
A concentrated package of hi-tech guarantees the performance of the car. At the top is the 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.
The sportiness of the Leon ST CUPRA can be further enhanced with the optional Performance Pack. It includes a high-performance four piston Brembo brake system with 370 x 32 mm perforated front discs, exclusive 19” rims (with a choice of Black or Orange) with Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tyres and side trim strips.
Dr Matthias Rabe, Vice President for Research and Development said: “We have invested a great deal in the fine details to ensure the Leon CUPRA has the same ride and the same athleticism in its estate form – but with plenty of additional utility.”
