The Seat Leon Cupra R is one of Seat’s quickest accelerating model capable of 0-62mph in just 6.2 seconds with a top speed of 155 mph. The 2.0 litre four cylinder turbocharged engine has been modified and a revised high pressure injection pump within the Leon’s six speed manual gearbox are further indications of the re-engineering that has gone into this new model.

Seat has significantly improved the Cupra R trim by adding plenty of extra kit to this fire-breathing, 155 mph 'halo' model for no extra cost. Already loaded with luxury features, the latest Leon Cupra R now offers, as standard, Seat Media System 2.2, Bluetooth connectivity, Bi-xenon headlights with AFS and LED rear-light clusters. This extra equipment is worth £1,665 RRP but despite its inclusion there has been no increase in the 265 PS Cupra R's price. In fact, the price of Seat's most potent production car to date has actually been cut by £10 to £25,995 RRP.

Official CO2 emissions from the Seat’s EU5-compliant engine stand at just 190 g/km which is a surprisingly low figure for a car with such exceptional performance. Combined economy is recorded at 35 mpg.
