SEAT Leon Cupra R available to order from April

The SEAT Leon Cupra R becomes SEAT’s quickest accelerating model to date

The new SEAT Leon Cupra R will be available to order from 1st April and the price for the Leon Cupra R has been confirmed at £25,505.

The SEAT Leon Cupra R also becomes SEAT’s quickest accelerating model to date with a 0-62mph time of just 6.2 seconds with a top speed of 155 mph. The 2.0 litre four cylinder turbocharged engine has been modified and a revised high pressure injection pump within the Leon’s six speed manual gearbox are further indications of the re-engineering that has gone into this new model. Official CO2 emissions from the SEAT’s EU5-compliant engine stand at just 190 g/km which is a surprisingly low figure for a car with such exceptional performance. Combined economy is recorded at 35 mpg.

The SEAT Leon Cupra R now has the addition of sporty twin central exit exhaust pipes with a customised rear diffuser, discreet extended high level rear spoiler and subtle ‘R’ badging. This prominent ‘R’ badging is on the back of the quilted leather bucket style front sports seats.
