Interior Design: Refinement reimagined

Martorell, 06 October 2020

Before you even step into the cabin, the welcome light projects the CUPRA logo down on the floor to set the scene and highlight that the new CUPRA Leon is a special vehicle.

As the driver nestles into their standard bucket seat, takes hold of the CUPRA leather steering wheel, which houses the engine start and CUPRA mode select button, and sees the Digital Cockpit, they will instantly understand they are taking control of a different type of vehicle. And the inclusion of a “ESP off” button in the middle console reinforces even more this spirit.

The CUPRA steering wheel, a nod to the Racing bloodline, will make drivers feel more connected to the vehicle, with its tactile, solid feel. Larger shift paddles make changing gear simpler and more natural, and the multifunction buttons add to the hi-tech feel.

The CUPRA button gives access to the different drive modes: a short press scrolls through Comfort, Sport, CUPRA and individual, while long press takes you directly to CUPRA mode.

The driver focus is further heightened by the inclusion of the large 10” infotainment system, which shifts controls to the touchscreen, reducing the button count, giving a sleeker, more modern look. The decluttered feel to the interior is amplified by the vehicle’s shift-by-wire technology, which reduces the gear shifter size and improves the console ergonomics.

Throughout the interior copper details and the dark chrome details bring a subtle sense of drama, with highlights including the leather dashboard with copper stitching and door mouldings brushed in dark aluminium, with a sophisticated tone effect, illuminated CUPRA doorstep in the front doors and colour coded door panels and seats.

The interior ambience is further defined by the seating option customers chose. Four different bucket seat choices are available: the standard one, offers a textile finish with PVC lateral coverings. A black leather finish with an electric memory system for the driver’s seat is also available, while this option is also offered in Petrol Blue, and takes the colour to the dashboard to extend the feel inside the cabin.

The interior of the new CUPRA Leon is very generous, giving a lot of space to driver, front and rear passengers thanks to the vehicle’s dimensions. In the Sportstourer, luggage space reaches 620litres (470l in the plug-in hybrid version) while the 5-door version offers 380litres (270l in the plug-in hybrid version). The result is a cabin that is driver focused for whenever you want to enjoy the performance the Leon offers, but comfortable and practical enough to take on life’s adventures without compromise.

Finally, the CUPRA Leon enhances the cabin experience with a full-LED wraparound ambient lighting system bringing increased personality to the interior. It’s not only an ambient decorative light, but it also provides several key functions such as exit assist (flashing in orange) or when the door is opened (red).

The CUPRA Leon can also be configured with BeatsAudio sound system, including 10 premium loudspeakers with a 340W power amplifier, and a 10l bass box located in the boot.
