The “super sports” version of the eponymous Seat, the Cupra Leon is about to receive two new petrol engines. Blocks 150 hp 1.5 TSI and 190 hp 2.0 TSI, available only with DSG automatic transmission, it will take place under the hood, in 5-door saloon and station wagon versions. If the 1.5 TSI is only half new as it is already available in the Seat Leon, the 2.0 TSI will however be new in these bodies.

These two engines will be offered with a standard “V” finish and a new finish that Cupra describes as offering. “more value and sophistication”. With this diversification, the brand strategy is simple: “We aim to achieve the same success with the Cupra Leon as the Cupra Coach” explains Kai Vogler, Cupra’s Vice President of Sales and Marketing. The SUV is definitely the manufacturer’s best seller, including Seat models (2,963 registrations in the first half of 2022). “The Cupra Leon is already the queen of the road, but we are still working to develop the car by increasing the proposition offered to our customers, offering more customization options and increasing its sales targets” concludes Kai Vogler. By providing more accessible installations, the goal should not be difficult to achieve.

Cupra does not yet present the price but specifies some V finishing equipment: full LED headlights, 18 rims, navigation on a 12 ” screen, and Cupra bucket seats in cloth. or skin. Something to add a little spice to the Leon, which remains an attractive proposition in the compact segment.
