The Cupra R ST version brings new levels of performance at Leon
Cupra stamps its DNA onto the Leon. The new brand brings performance to another dimension with the Leon Cupra R ST, a special edition for those who need an extra boost and think that details matter.
This model is set to stand out bringing together the high performance of its 300PS/400Nm 2.0 litre TSI engine and the dynamic traction from its 4Drive system.
Its highly tuned turbocharged, direct-injection petrol engine linked to a seven-speed DSG transmission means the Leon Cupra R ST can hit 100km/h in just 4.9 seconds and reach a top speed of 250km/h. The performance is matched by the distinctive sound from the quad exhaust pipes at the rear of the vehicle giving drivers a sound as well as a visceral experience from behind the steering wheel. Even at first glance the Leon Cupra R ST distinguishes itself from the competition with a compelling exterior design.
While the Leon Cupra R ST is designed as a high-performance vehicle it also supplies the necessary levels of comfort and convenience that modern life necessitates. Behind the steering wheel, after pressing the start button, the welcome splash screen shows an exclusive Cupra R ST display on the central console’s 8” colour screen. And once in motion the driver is given all the information and driving data they need from the pixel-dense Digital Cockpit, meaning they can remain focused on the art of driving with minimal distraction.
And in a world that requires us to remain connected, the Leon Cupra R ST integrates the latest connectivity suite meaning drivers can link their mobile devices to the car and benefit from selected apps and increased functionality as well as Connectivity Box for wireless charging of smartphone.
Deliveries are beginning in March.
