To mark the 20th anniversary of its Cupra performance sub-division Seat has refreshed the range-topping Leon hot hatch. The Leon Cupra 290 replaces the 280 and the new name suggests power is up by.
SEAT Leon Cupra ST Review 4.06M 283K 132K 15.2K The Leon Cupra ST is a 300hp performance estate car that rivals the VW Golf R estate, Ford Focus ST Estate and Skoda Octavia vRS estate. If you don’t need the extra boot space the estate version offers then it’s also available as the three-door Leon Cupra SC and the five-door Leon Cupra. Overall, there's not that much colour in the cabin The.
Seat's Leon Cupra is actually more powerful than the stock GTI and a little cheaper. It's a more extreme experience than the Golf - the ride is firmer and overall refinement is a notch lower - but the car should appeal to drivers seeking serious hot hatch performance plus a dash of practicality.
The Leon Cupra 290 claims 42.8mpg economy, while a Peugeot 308 GTi by Peugeot Sport promises 47.1mpg. If you’re prepared to go diesel, VW says its Golf GTD returns 64.2mpg and can still cover 0.
The Leon ST is already among the front runners in this class, which is no mean feat considering it's actually SEAT's first proper stab at such a car (Exeo ST notwithstanding). It has sharper looks than any of its Volkswagen Group siblings and it possesses a lovely, fluid chassis that makes it a genuine pleasure to hustle along, while there's a great range of strong engines to choose from. That.
The Leon CUPRA also states its position as the top model in the SEAT range through the progressive steering, dynamic chassis control, front-axle differential lock, CUPRA Drive Profile and high-performance brake system with 19-inch wheels. The CUPRA 290 runs on 19-inch wheels and is recognisable by its black exterior mirror housings and red brake callipers with CUPRA lettering. Likewise.
The Seat Leon ST Cupra 280 is a lovely car in which to while away the miles, but the price saving over a Golf R estate doesn’t make up for the lack of four-wheel drive, and it’s not so much better to drive than the Focus or Octavia that you’d be pleased you’d spent the extra. By sticking to the middle of the road, this fast estate car feels as though it could end up being passed by.

Overall verdict This is the first time there’s been a SEAT Leon estate, lending an air of additional practicality to SEAT’s family-car offering but without too much of a weight penalty. In essence it’s a cheaper, better-looking Golf estate. The SEAT Leon ST interior borrows much from its VW and Skoda sister cars, but adds that bit of Spanish flare that livens up the otherwise dark and.
Thanks to this Leon ST, nobody, SEAT says, now needs to have to compromise in their choice between a sporty car and a practical one. That may be over-stating things a bit but it's true that this is one of the more dynamic shapes in the compact estate segment. To create it, the Spanish designers have had to compromise a little on ultimate carriage capacity: without the smartly angled rear.
Month 5 running a Seat Leon Cupra 280: fast car, slow sat-nav The Leon Cupra 280 will accelerate from 0-62mph in 5.8sec. That’s very fast for a five-door hatch, and Seat makes much of the stat.
The Seat Leon shares most of its oily bits with the Volkswagen Golf on which it’s based, and in estate form, it also competes with other mid-size family wagons like the Ford Focus Estate and Vauxhall Astra Sports Tourer, to name but a few. It’s praise indeed, then, that even in a class that’s full of seriously impressive cars, the Leon is one of the more appealing options.
The affable SEAT Leon has been part of the UK market for nearly 20 years and, like all VW Group products, has evolved dramatically in that time. Recently, the 3-door SC was discontinued, leaving the five-door Hatch and ST Estate. The upgrades to the 2017 Leon included new exterior lighting units with LED strips, while down below, there’s a wider air dam to go with larger corner air inlets.
