2017 SEAT Leon Cupra 300

By Chris Taylor

The SEAT Leon Cupra 300

“Cupra” is the performance range of SEAT’s Leon marque. Cupra models boast more performance than the standard Leons, with the latest addition to the range being the Leon Cupra 300, aptly named after its power output of 300 horsepower. You may have seen the Cupra compared to the Volkswagen Golf GTI time and time again; in terms of performance the models are very closely aligned. The Cupra 300’s design is a tad sportier looking than the Golf GTI, with the 2017 facelift featuring a new front grille and updated lights.

SEAT Leon Cupra Styling


The Leon Cupra is one of the sportiest looking among its class; it shares similar styling to the SEAT Ibiza in that it’s small with aggressive creasing around the body. As standard the Cupra comes with 19” machined alloy wheels, red brake callipers and multi-coloured LED door panel illumination. As for colour options, the model comes in Mediterranean Blue as standard, with multitude of other options such as Mystery Blue, Monsoon Grey, Midnight Black, Nevada White and Urban Silver – each costing £575 respectively, or a step further Desire Red, which costs £650.


Seating options include Black Alcantara sport seats with Grey stitching as standard, with an optional choice of Black leather with White stitching or Black bucket seats. The 8 inch touchscreen infotainment system comes with satellite navigation as standard on the Cupra trim and has 8 speakers placed around the interior. Whats more, is that SEAT have placed LED mood lighting around the cabin which changes colour with each driving mode you select.
