CUPRA Leon

Introduction

Martorell, 06 October 2020

The new CUPRA Leon is a vehicle developed to revamp the high-performance compact segment, building on the generations of vehicles that came before it.

Using the MQB Evo platform and a suite of technologies as the starting point, the design and development team was able to create a vehicle that specifically delivers all of the attributes a CUPRA must have.

And with two body styles available – 5-door and Sportstourer – the CUPRA Leon expands its appeal, allowing customers to choose the vehicle that best fits their lifestyle, without needing to compromise on performance, comfort or practicality.

High levels of standard equipment including full LED, bucket seats, Dynamic Chassis Control (DCC), digital cockpit, 10’’ infotainment and Climatronic three-zone to name just a few, make it a vehicle that offers great value in a highly competitive segment.

This latest iteration strengthens yet further the CUPRA brand, offering a unique driving experience thanks to its highly advanced range of powertrains, its dynamic chassis technologies, and its elegant mix of sportiness and sophistication in its exterior and interior design. Add to this a highly connected, digitalised user experience and the integration of some of the most advanced driver assistance systems available, the new CUPRA Leon becomes one of the most appealing vehicles the brand has ever offered.

The range of powertrains includes 245PS, 300PS (and exclusively available for the Sportstourer, 310PS 4Drive) 2.0 litre TSI petrol engines that provide enough breadth of performance to suit anyone’s taste. And in a world that is constantly aiming to reduce its impact on the environment, the all-new CUPRA Leon also brings electrification to the high-performance segment in the form of a 245PS plug-in hybrid system, which will be available from the launch, meaning the ultimate expression of performance isn’t burdened by remorse.

Power and torque are only part of the new CUPRA Leon’s attributes though, it’s also one of the safest vehicles the brand has ever developed, integrating some of the most advanced driver assistance systems to keep occupants away from accidents whether on the highway, in the city or simple moving away from a parking space.

And in an increasingly digitalised world, the CUPRA Leon not only offers on-road performance but also provides a high level of connectivity. So, whether it’s bringing your smart device into the vehicle cabin, or accessing vehicle specific online services, the CUPRA Leon is the intersection between the road and connectivity.

The new CUPRA Leon is the ultimate expression of the brand’s values and destined to strengthen CUPRA’s position in the market while at the same time opening it up to new customers and expanding the allure.
