The highly regarded automobile reviewing site open the article with a bullet point labeling the 17-plate "the most powerful road-going Seat ever" and with its 2.0-litre petrol-powered engine that produces 296bhp this is most certainly the case.
The review continues to discuss the Leon Cupra and how the newest version model of the car has been adapted to cope with the dramatically increased power compared to the previous model. The new model of the car comes with Dynamic Chassis Control to suit the driver’s personal preference on how the car is different and can be altered to the ever-changing environment.
The review highlights that the driver is able to choose between four different modes:
The Cupra mode is described as the ultimate in hot hatch performance. This performance is formed through a combination of ruthless power stemming from the high-performance engine alongside the comfort and elegance that is ever-present throughout the 17-plate Leon Cupra.
The review re-emphasizes SEATS statement that the Cupra is far more than just a high-performance car, as the updated model will include a range of the latest driving assistance features such as:
Finally, Andy Pringle states that the new Cupra will 'rival the likes of the Volkswagen Golf R and Ford Focus RS which really amplifies the quality of the new Leon Cupra, putting the new model in the same bracket as two of the highest selling hatchback cars in Europe.
The review then reiterates that the newest SEAT models are available in showrooms from the 1st of March. The Autotrader review has increased the anticipation for SEAT's 17-plate collection dramatically, especially for the already highly regarded - Leon Cupra.
