Speaking about the Cupra 290 Auto Express commented “Another gem from SEAT, the Leon Cupra 290 is not just faster and more powerful than before but also better to driver. Despite costing less than all the top line hot hatchbacks of the moment, it can level with most of the where it counts: on the road”.

Powered by a turbo charged 2.0l engine that produces more torque than ever before, the SEAT Leon Cupra takes on and beats the Honda Civic Type R and Ford Focus ST. Select Cupra mode and benefit from elevated dampers, steering, throttle response and added exhaust noise.
