It’s sporty…..It’s sexy……and it’s the fastest model to be manufactured in the history of SEAT – and it’s available at Jennings.

The new Leon CUPRA R, powered by a 2.0-litre TSi engine that produces a maximum output of 265 bhp and can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in just 6.2 seconds, has arrived at Jennings SEAT’s Cargo Fleet Lane dealership in Middlesbrough.

The latest model to be launched by the Spanish arm of the Volkswagen family, has been turning heads and generating a lot of interest from customers since it was unveiled on the forecourt of the Middlesbrough dealership.

The focal point on the new Leon CUPRA R is its 2-litre TSi engine, which also features a new high pressure fuel pump injector to satisfy its greater performance demands, while fully complying with strict EU5 emissions standards.

Its main characteristics are its tremendous power, easy torque transmission and elasticity.

The high level of exclusivity of SEAT’s new model is easily identifiable on both the outside and inside by the distinctive letter ‘R’ readily visible on the central grille and at the lower right of the hatch, the right instrument dial and the remote control key. While the CUPRA logo is on the front bumper on the lower left, the centre of the hatch, the steering wheel and the seat backrests.

Further distinctive detailing includes the spectacular 19”, five double-spoke wheels.

Standard equipment on the CUPRA R model includes dual zone climate control, cruise control, ABS, electric front and rear windows, leather interior, MP3 compatible CD player with 8 speakers, steering column mounted audio controls, sports suspension, dark tinted rear windows, rear parking sensors, rain and light sensors, remote central locking and ESP with EBA.

Commenting on the latest addition to the SEAT range, Craig Johnson, franchise manager at Jennings SEAT in Middlesbrough, said;

“The new CUPRA R is an absolutely fantastic car which is equipped with a turbo-charged 265 bhp 2.0-litre TSi engine, making this car the most potent production SEAT has produced to date.

“The engine settings have been carefully calculated to deliver its 265bhp output, brilliant performance, moderate fuel consumption and EU-5 emissions compliance.

“So far, it has generated an extremely positive response from customers and is destined to be a huge success.”
