Cupra Leon buying guide

What Cupra Leon trim levels are there?

If you want the sporty styling at the lowest cost, you want V1 trim. This still includes sculpted bumpers and 18-inch alloy wheels, along with sports seats, front and rear parking sensors, a reversing camera, LED headlights, a digital instrument display and a large touchscreen.

VZ2 trim is next, and only comes with the more powerful engines – including the hybrid. You also get 19-inch alloys and a range of additional driver assistance aids such as high-beam assist and lane-change assist.

Top-end VZ3 models get different wheels, Matrix LED headlights, wireless phone charging, leather upholstery with heated front seats and a heated steering wheel.

Cupra Leon interior and technology

Unsurprisingly, the interior hardware is the same as the SEAT version, with a flat-bottomed multifunction steering wheel in front of a crisp digital dial cluster. The 12-inch touchscreen faces the driver and includes DAB radio, sat nav, Android Auto and wireless Apple CarPlay. But the Cupra gets exclusive graphics for the screens, plus copper trim on the steering wheel and air vent surrounds.

Cupra Leon boot space and dimensions

The Cupra Leon gets a 380-litre boot, or 270 litres in the plug-in hybrid. This matches the Volkswagen Golf GTI and the Ford Focus ST, while the estate version swells to a whopping 620 litres (470 for the e-Hybrid). The hatchback is a whisker under 4.4 metres long and two metres wide.

Cupra Leon engine range explained

Cupra Leon 1.5 TSI EVO 150 petrol

The entry-level engine, a 1.5-litre petrol engine with 150hp, is shared with the SEAT Leon, which will likely be more affordable than a Cupra version with the same age and mileage. With a 0-62mph time of nearly nine seconds, the 1.5-litre engine also isn’t particularly quick for a Cupra, but it is the most efficient petrol engine with up to 48mpg possible. This engine is available with a manual or automatic gearbox, with the latter adding mild-hybrid technology.

Cupra Leon 2.0 TSI 190 petrol

Like the 1.5-litre engine, this engine is limited to the V1 trim level. It’s a 2.0-litre petrol with 190hp, which knocks the 0-62mph time down to a brisk 7.2 seconds. Only available with an automatic gearbox, this engine returns up to 41mpg.

Cupra Leon 2.0 TSI 245 petrol

This is the same engine as the 190 but with power turned up to 245hp, which further reduces the 0-62mph time to 6.4 seconds. It’s capable of up to 39mpg and is offered on the top two trim levels.

Cupra Leon 2.0 TSI 300 petrol

The range-topping petrol engine produces a nice round 300hp and slashes the acceleration time down to 5.7 seconds – matching the fastest front-wheel-drive hot hatchbacks. Drive at a more relaxed pace and you’ll see up to 37mpg.

Cupra Leon 1.4 e-Hybrid 245

For some drivers, especially those who drive a lot around town, the plug-in hybrid Cupra Leon offers the best of both worlds. A potential 37-mile electric-only driving range is impressive, as is its 6.7-second 0-62mph time. A full charge of the battery takes five hours from a standard household plug socket.

FAQs

Despite being a new model, the Cupra Leon shares nearly all its parts with other VW Group cars. Problems with modern VW Group cars aren’t too common, so we have every confidence that the Leon will be reliable.

The only four-wheel-drive Cupra Leon is the estate with the most powerful petrol engine – all other models are front-wheel drive. Also check out the Cupra Formentor and Cupra Ateca if you want four-wheel drive.

The Cupra Leon is made alongside the SEAT Leon in SEAT’s Spanish factory. Both brands are owned by the Volkswagen Group.

The Cupra Leon is based on the SEAT Leon – it’s one of Cupra’s rebadged SEAT cars and is made in the same factory.

The entry-level 1.5-litre petrol engine is the most economical option, capable of 47mpg. Other petrol engines return between 37mpg and 41mpg, while the Cupra Leon e-Hybrid officially returns up to 217mpg – although you’ll have to drive predominantly on battery power to achieve anywhere near that figure.

All are except the entry-level 1.5-litre petrol engine, which is available with a six-speed manual gearbox as well as a seven-speed automatic. Every petrol engine has this seven-speed auto, while the plug-in hybrid uses a six-speed automatic gearbox.
