Seat has officially pulled the wraps off the new Leon ST Cupra Wagon, the top of the line version of the model.
The new Seat Leon ST Cupra Wagon has been officially unveiled over the web after the Cupra and the Cupra 280, with their 3- and 5-door hatchback body styles, have been introduced at the Geneva Motor Show, last year, in March. The carmaker says that the new model is riding on 18-inch alloy wheels, as standard, while the 19-inch rims are available on the “280 version”.
The DDC (Dynamic Chassis Control) has been equipped to the Leon ST Cupra, according to the company, which is capable of modifying its chassis characteristics in just milliseconds, helping it match the raod conditions. The front axle differential lock is also found on the hot model, improving the traction and diminishing the torque steer, without affecting the standard progressive steering.
Standard items found on both the Cupra and the Cupra 280 include the LED taillights, the LED headlights, the LED ambient lighting in the cabin, the Alcantara wrapped sports seats, the Media System Plus infotainment system with its 6.5-inch touch screen color display and several other goodies which should make the two more appealing into the eyes of their future customers.
Under the hood, the Seat Leon ST Cupra Wagon is packing a 2.0 liter four-cylinder turbocharged gasoline burner, which is producing a total of 265 HP (195 kW), while the Leon ST Cupra 280 has 280 HP (206 kW). Both vehicles have the same peak torque, 350 Nm (258 lb-ft). When equipped with the DSG, the regular version can reach 100 km/h (62 mph) in 6.1s while the Cupra 280 can do it in 6 seconds. Both have a limited top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph). No pricing details have been announced yet as the two models will be introduced at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show.
