Of course, the design from Seat is taken over and the angular mirrors we may not criticize if they do not jeopardize a low air resistance. Furthermore five ventilation slits front shall bring more air to the Cupra engine, probably more of a styling gimmick. Even otherwise, it is relatively eye-catching, for example, with white bordered seats. Who the maximum output of 206 kW (280 HP) like to call up is probably to enthuse for such a thing.

To that also belongs a special noise scenario in the interior, not caused by the engine itself, but from the sound system. By the way, the end is at 250 km/h. The family estate car with nearly 1,500 liters of luggage space may not be faster. However, there is a package for the race track for up to 4,000 euros. Whether the speed brake is released then, otherwise you feel actually like at a truck competition?

Responsible parents might perhaps save the 11 kW (15 hp) and thus 1,300 euros. Responsible parents could save perhaps the 11 kW (15 hp) and thus 1,300 euros. However, the manufacturer expects mostly buyers for the stronger version. Incidentally, the Leon family has overtaken at the moment of its completion the of the cheaper Ibiza. On that and because of the recently presented 20V20 (third video) one recognizes, where the brand is looking for its future place. At least, not necessarily in the low-price segment.

Whether an estate car is appropriate for the race track as a second car, we will see at the sales figures. Naturally, the Cupra is available also as SC and five-door, but the we have hidden in the picture below. 03/15               Top of page               Index
