Spy Video: 2014 SEAT Leon Cupra with 260 HP [Video]
text size: A- A+
This is the new Leon Cupra, the third generation of this car, and the fourth hot model in the VW family to be built on this platform, after the Golf GTI/GTD, Audi S3 and Skoda Octavia vRS.
The new Leon Cupra has been spotted testing hard, like a hot hatch is supposed to. It appears to have the same electronic traction control system as the Golf GTI. We believe the Cupra will have exactly 260 PS and match the 350 Nm of both the 220 hp Golf and 300 hp Audi that have similar engines.
We also believe it will be quietly refined in style, unlike Cupra of old that looked like they'd been tuned. This one will be at home at a country club or taking your mother-in-law to the airport.
