The brand new Seat Leon Cupra, and the Cupra 280, have been officially presented to the public, in a premiere, during the 2014 Geneva Motor Show.
The new Seat Leon Cupra is basically a sexier version of the Golf and it’s currently available in two body styles, three- and five-door hatchback. The Cupra has an aggressive design, with large air intakes into the front bumper, the honeycomb mesh grille inserts, the tinted rear windows, LED headlights, dual exhaust system, red brake calipers and others.
The Seat Leon Cupra 280 is also getting an aerodynamic body kit, which will help it differentiate from its “bold” brother. The vehicle will also get a titanium two-tone finish for the 19-inch wheels, the Cupra branded brake calipers, the black mirror casing and more. The cabin of the car is getting sport seats, flat bottomed steering wheel, aluminum pedals, LED ambient lighting, gloss black or classic chrome trim, 5.8-inch display for the infotainment system and more.
Power to this Leon Cupra 280 is being provided by a 2.0 liter TSI four-cylinder engine, which is producing a total output of 280 HP (206 kW) and 350 Nm (258 lb-ft) of torque. The 0 to 100 km/h sprint takes 5.7 seconds in the Leon SC. The regular Cupra is coming with the same engine, which is rated at 265 HP (195 kW) and 350 Nm (258 lb-ft), enough for a 0 to 100 km/h acceleration made in 5.8 seconds.
