Seat Leon Cupra ST: Images And Details For The 280 HP Performance Version
|   Thursday, January 22, 2015
Seat has revealed the new Leon ST Cupra version of its compact performance model. Equipped with a 2.0-liter engine, the model can be delivered in two power versions.

And so SEAT has extended its range of performance models, recognized by the Cupra label. It is the third model of the Cupra range after the three and five door hatchback, introduced in 2014 at the Geneva Motor Show.

Like its brothers, the new Seat Leon ST Cupra's power comes in two versions, both propelled by a 2.
-liter turbocharged petrol engine. The silent Leon ST Cupra develops 265 horsepower, while the extreme version, dubbed Leon ST Cupra 280 delivers, as the name suggests a total of 280 horses.

Equipped with the DSG transmission, the latter being the fastest option in the range, the sprint from 0 to 100 km / h takes just 6 seconds. In the case of the version with only 265 horsepower, the sprint from 0 to 100 km / h may take 6.2 seconds when talking about a manual transmission dropping to 6 seconds with the DSG.
Whatever the choice, the customers should be aware that the maximum speed is electronically limited at 250 km / h.

"The new Leon ST CUPRA is the perfect complement to our high-performance model line-up. The combination of refined performance and expressive dynamics with relaxed long-distance comfort and compelling utility make it utterly unique. The Leon ST CUPRA shows the SEAT brand values at their best. We are proud of the technical excellence and quality it conveys" says President Jürgen Stackmann.

To control that power, the Seat Leon Cupra has a Dynamic Chassis Control system, which adjusts road holding, and other parameters of the chassis to accommodate the road. We also get a locking differential on the front axle.

On the aesthetic level, the two versions of the model are differentiated only by a rim size of 18 inches and 19 inches, and a large rear spoiler located on the tailgate on the Leon Cupra ST 280. The sporty spirit is suggested by the Cupra logos, and many shiny chrome inserts and distinct calipers.

Also included in the equipment list, we have headlights with full LED lighting, taillights with the same technology, and a 6.5 inch touch screen multimedia system. Along with their distinctive design, LED lights have many additional benefits. They illuminate the road in the front at a temperature of 5,300 Kelvin. Because this is very similar to daylight, there is very little bother to eyes.

When it comes to efficiency, LEDs consume minimal power, with the headlamp beam, for example, drawing only 20 watts per unit.
"The new Leon ST CUPRA is pure SEAT – emotion and performance, design and dynamics deliver driving fun mile after mile. It boasts state-of-the-art technology evident in its great precision, but also in its amazing efficiency. We have invested a great deal in the fine details to ensure the Leon CUPRA has the same ride and the same athleticism in its estate form – but with plenty of additional utility" stresses Dr. Matthias Rabe, Vice President for Research and Development.
The official debut will be in March, at the Geneva Motor Show. The first copies of this model will arrive in showrooms in the summer.
