Lower price entry

for Cupra Leon

Cupra Leon, front static

YOU can now save more than £5,000 by ordering a version of the Cupra Leon that cuts power compared to the existing car - but ought to still feel plenty fast enough.

The new 242bhp version of the Cupra Leon costs £31,460 in VZ1 trim compared to the £36,760 asked for the 295bhp VZ3 model. There's also a new £32,695 VZ2 version with the lower power output but a higher standard specification.

Available exclusively with the DSG-auto transmission, the latest version powers the CUPRA Leon from 0-62mph in 6.4 seconds, with a limited top speed of 155mph (the more powerful Cupra takes 5.7 seconds).

The range kicks off with the VZ1 trim, which features 18-inch machined black and silver alloy wheels, sports bumpers, black brake calipers, the Cupra's unique chrome and copper interior detailing, a flat-bottomed perforated leather steering wheel with gearshift paddles, sports bucket seats and a rear diffuser with oval quad (two either side) exhaust pipes.

A comprehensive selection of technology comes as standard too, with highlights including a digital cockpit, a 10-inch infotainment system with navigation and Full Link smartphone integration (compatible with Mirror Link, wireless Apple CarPlay and wired Google Android Auto), four USB-C charging ports, wraparound ambient interior lighting, illuminated door sills, three-zone climate control, cruise control with speed limiter, keyless entry and start and a rear view reversing camera.

VZ2 trim upgrades the wheels to 19-inch machined black and silver alloys and enhance the aggressive aesthetic of the CUPRA Leon, while adding dynamic chassis control that enhances the hatchback's driving dynamics and ride.
