Review: the Seat Leon Cupra 290, a hot hatch ace (2015.
Month 5 running a Seat Leon Cupra 280: fast car, slow sat-nav The Leon Cupra 280 will accelerate from 0-62mph in 5.8sec. That’s very fast for a five-door hatch, and Seat makes much of the stat.
On the sporty side of things, Seat launched two new limited-edition Cupra models. The first of these was the 306bhp Cupra R, of which just 24 were brought over to the UK—making it an elusive model over here. The second was the Leon ST Cupra Carbon Edition, an estate version trimmed in various bits of carbon. Just 50 of these were released to.
SEAT weren't expecting their Cupra versions of the Leon to sell quite as well as they did and while they were overjoyed at the contribution the Cupras made to their bottom line, it soon became apparent that few people were buying any other sort of Leon. With over 60 per cent of UK Leon sales accounted for by the sports models, there's no shortage of choice for used buyers looking to get a deal.

The Seat Leon typically does well in customer satisfaction surveys and we wouldn’t expect a used Leon to show up many reliability issues. Safety is also well taken care of. The Leon scored a full five-star Euro NCAP rating when new, with excellent scores for adult and child crash protection. The latest post-2017 models also feature autonomous.
The Seat Leon ST 1.6 Ecomotive is a joy to drive and is responsive and economical to drive. The only draw back is if using a child seat in the rear middle seat then the car body is not really wide enough for two adults to sit either side in comfort. Reaching to buckle up the seat belts is a bit of a strain. Much preferred my old Citroen Cases Picasso in this respect.
