Seat extends its Cupra range with the introduction of the new Leon ST Cupra model, based on the estate version of the compact car. As the three- and five-door hatchback, the new Leon ST Cupra will be available in two power versions, both fueled by the same 2.0-liter supercharged unit.

Drivetrain 

As we said, depending on the version, it delivers an output of 265 hp or 280 hp.The Cupra 280 with optional DSG transmission, the brand’s top model, goes from zero to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 6.0 seconds, and in 6.1 seconds with the manual gearbox.

The maximum torque of 350 NM across the wide range of 1,700 to 5,600 rpm guarantees pulling power in every situation. Same for the basic Leon ST Cupra with 265 hp. Its acceleration time stands at 6.2 seconds with manual transmission and 6.1 seconds with DSG. For both versions, the regulated top speed is 250 km/h (155 mph).

The average fuel consumption for both power variants is just 6.6 litres (35.6 mpg) with DSG and 6.7 litres (35.1 mpg) with the manual gearbox. This equates to CO2 figures of just 154 and 157 grams.

Sub8 Performance Pack 

The Leon ST Cupra performance can go even further with the Sub8 Performance Pack that comprises larger Brembo brake calipers, specific wheels and special tyres.

Dynamic Chassis Control and Drive Profile

The new generation of the Dynamic Chassis Control (DCC) developed specifically for the Cupra is even more sensitive and responsive, adapting the chassis characteristics to the prevailing conditions in a matter of milliseconds. The same applies to the driver’s preferences: the Cupra Drive Profile permits extensive individualisation of the ride.
