SEAT Leon Eurocup Racer – A Seriously Good Looking Race Car!

SEAT’s Leon is on something of a roll at the minute, with the Cupra 280 taking the FWD record at the Nürburging, whilst also picking up various accolades and positive reviews from the motoring press.

Geneva 2014 – SEAT Leon Cupra sets Nürburgring Record

With 280 PS the new SEAT Leon Cupra was always going to have decent performance. But was it enough to set a new lap record for production cars at the infamous Nürburgring Nordschleife circuit?

2014 SEAT Leon Cupra – Something of a bargain

We like the new SEAT Leon Cupra here at EngageSportMode. We like it even more when SEAT UK announces keenly priced finance options, that match the power output of their car’s 2.0 TSI engine.

A Cupra version of the latest Leon was inevitable. Less so was a choice of doors and power outputs which the all-new Leon flagship will offer.
