The Seat Leon ST CUPRA has been introduced this week and will be shown in the flesh at the Geneva Motor Show set for early March. It’s basically a wagon version of the Leon CUPRA hatchback and is offered with the same 4-cylinder, 2.0-liter turbo engine offered in two states of tune: 265 HP and 280 HP, with both of them having a 350 Nm torque. The quickest version is the Leon ST CUPRA 280 equipped with the optional DSG transmission which will complete the 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) run in just 6 seconds, making it 0.1s faster than the manual variant.
It comes with standard 18-inch alloy wheels but if you get the “280” model this one has 19-inch titanium-look rims. The more powerful model also gets a spoiler on the roof, black side mirrors, “CUPRA” lettering on the brake calipers while inside the cabin it has a classic chrome or deep glossy black trim.
Regardless of the version, the Seat Leon ST CUPRA is fitted as standard with full LED headlights, LED taillights, LED ambient lighting, Alcantara-covered sport seats and a 6.5-inch color touchscreen part of the Media System Plus infotainment system.
