There are near to endless reasons why both us here at Swindon SEAT and petrol heads love the SEAT Leon CUPRA 290.

The CUPRA 280 was a big hit back in 2015 and it was reflected when Auto Express crowned it the Best Hot Hatch of The Year 2015 at the New Car Awards. This didn’t stop SEAT from upgrading an already stunning car with a few subtle design tweaks including upgraded sports exhaust and even more impressive power. You will also be surprised to learn that even with the increased performance on tap that the emissions and fuel economy are unchanged from the CUPRA 280 to the CUPRA 290 remaining at a possible 43.5 MPG (combined.)

One year on and the latest version of SEAT’s hot hatch comes with an incredible 286 brake horse power and accelerates from 0-62 MPH in 5.9 seconds and reaching 155 MPH flat out. The Leon Sport Coupe CUPRA 290 with DSG transmission is even quicker reaching 62 MPH in just 5.6 seconds.

Here at Swindon SEAT we think that the SEAT Leon CUPRA is hugely entertaining to drive and guarantees to put a smile on your face. It has ability to throw you back into your seat when you floor the throttle and the ride quality adds a level of sophistication that you simply don’t get from its lairier rivals such as the Honda Civic Type R & Renaultsport Megane RS. The SEAT Leon CUPRA has SEAT Drive Profile model selection which includes CUPRA mode to add a thrill to your ride and Individual mode which enables you to configure your drive including suspension, steering and differential settings.

The SEAT Leon CUPRA is a  highly desirable and fast car that packs plenty of punch. It is also extremely responsive that can put shame to some of the other sports cars in the market with its sharp responses and finely tuned chassis.

The SEAT Leon CUPRA is available in all 3 size variations straight from Swindon SEAT; The Sport Coupe 3 Door, Hot Hatchback 5 Door & Sport Tourer Estate. You can view our headline SEAT Leon CUPRA offers on our website today.

The Hot Hatchback 5 Door SEAT Leon CUPRA has a 380-litre boot which out-shines the space in a Golf R boot which suffers in size due to its bulky 4 wheel drive system. If you’re looking for further space all of the new upgrades carried over to the CUPRA 290 are also highlighted in the Sport Tourer Estate model.

Aesthetics & power aren’t the only virtues that SEAT have ensured the CUPRA posses. In true SEAT style, the SEAT Leon CUPRA is packed with ‘Technology to Enjoy.’ Just one example is that the CUPRA 290 is the only model in the Leon range to offer MirrorLink as a standard feature. MirrorLink enables its user to connect with their car directly from their smartphone. Satellite Navigation is also on board but an upgraded system is also available which includes dynamic route guidance and voice control functionality.

The Leon CUPRA 290 as standard is finished with 19″ alloy wheels and Top Sport Alcantara upholstery. However, our personal favourite is the Leon CUPRA 290 Black Edition that is a real head turner with 19″ multi spoke black alloy wheels & CUPRA sport bucket seats. When it comes to picking the exterior paint finish we choose the Metallic Dynamic Grey option which adds only £575 to the basic on the road price.The final touch for us is intensifying the audio experience with the SEAT Sound System for only £260 which upgrades the CUPRA to 10 speakers plus a subwoofer mounted in the boot.

The SEAT Leon CUPRA 280 finished in Metallic Dynamic Grey with 19″ CUPRA multi spoke alloy wheels & red Brembo brake calipers took centre stage in our showroom back in 2015
