The car has an entirely new grille separated in the middle by the license plate holder that was positioned further up. The side vents are smaller, and the headlamps are also new and feature revised graphics. Since it is a mid-cycle refresh and not a new-gen, the profile carries over, though it should at least feature new wheels. The back end looks like an evolution of the current car. It features a similar bumper with repositioned reflectors, a sporty diffuser with cutouts for the exhaust trim, and likely new taillights that should still be linked together by a light strip. The tailgate should still host the OEM logo and Cupra lettering in the middle.
We still cannot clearly see the interior, but chances are it won't get significant upgrades. It is possible that the infotainment system will get new software, with potentially new upholstery and trim rounding off the makeover. Some believe the center console and steering wheel might be new, though we have yet to learn if that is indeed the case. Elsewhere, look for the same copper elements that are pretty much synonymous with SEAT's performance and electrified brand because, if you forgot, cupra means copper in Latin. Alleged chassis upgrades and maybe a revised color palette could complete the mid-cycle refresh of the 2024 Cupra Leon, regardless of the body style.
In terms of power, it has been reported that it might retain its predecessor's units. This means the usual gasoline mills and plug-in hybrids. It is yet unknown whether Cupra has improved the fuel consumption and carbon dioxide emissions of certain powertrains, but we wouldn't expect any major changes here. We will find out everything about the facelifted Cupra Leon when the time comes, yet for now, we do not know when the grand unveiling will be hosted. Certain outlets speak of a potential debut in the first half of next year, and it appears our spy photographers believe that too, as they said it could debut roughly six months from now, which would mean in March 2024. As you already know, Cupra doesn't sell its vehicles in our market, and that's not about to change with the facelifted Leon.
