What happens when you put the Golf R engine with the GTi Performance chassis, then clothe it in some Spanish flair? You get the Seat Leon Cupra, that’s what!
Another mid-sized hatchback from the VW Group that includes the Golf, Skoda Octavia and Audi A3, the Leon Cupra aims to combine the sportiest bits of the various offerings into one. So you have the FWD chassis with electronic differential, the 2.0 litre turbo engine with 286bhp (10bhp down on last year thanks to WLTP emissions regs) and the excellent DSG gearbox.
The styling is understated as ever, but with a little more aggression than the Golf while inside you get every bit of kit you could ever want on this Lux model like LED headlights, keyless entry, 19-inch wheels, wireless charging, leather seats and full phone connectivity.
We know it must be good, as our very own resident car geek Tim has just bought one to replace his Octavia vRS!
You could win this hot hatch in the BOTB dream car competition!
