CUPRA has introduced a new powertrain to its Leon range, with order books open from today.

The brand’s iconic hatchback has received a new 245PS output of the 2.0 TSI DSG-auto powertrain, increasing the affordability of the CUPRA Leon. Now available to order, prices start from £31,460 RRP for the VZ1 trim and rise to £32,695 for the VZ2 trim.

Available exclusively with the DSG-auto transmission, the latest iteration delivers 245PS and 370Nm of torque. The efficient turbocharged petrol engine powers the CUPRA Leon from 0-62mph in just 6.4 seconds, with a limited top speed of 155mph.

The 245PS 2.0 TSI promises to offer a perfect balance between performance, efficiency and comfort, with all CUPRA Leon variants including a host of performance design features and technology as standard.

The range kicks off with the VZ1 trim, which features 18-inch machined black and silver alloy wheels, sports bumpers, black brake calipers, 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.
