The past month of October was relieved of the SEAT León 2017, the renewal of the popular compact. The essence was the same and had an outside with a few light touch-ups. On the inside we would find further developments, as it is updated at a technological level. Although today we come to talk about the sport variant of this model, the SEAT Leon Cupra. As we have already mentioned a few days ago, it will be more powerful than ever.
The new Leon Cupra is to become the vehicle of series most powerful in the history of the brand. The petrol engine 2.0 TSI comes with some improvements and now develops round number of 300 HP (before it was at 290 HP). The engine torque also increases from 350 Nm up to 380 Nm it now delivers between about 1,800 and 5,500 rpm. We still do not know their benefits, but with these figures improve considerably.
Another of the important novelties of the SEAT Leon Cupra is that it will have all-wheel-drive 4Drive. The penalty is that it will be optional only in the family version ST and it does not currently expect its adoption in the bodywork of 5 doors. Is traction will be linked to the change automatic DSG dual-clutch. This is not the first time it happens, as the first generation of Leon Cupra already had four-wheel drive back in the year 2000.
To get the most out of this mechanic, it will bring series some elements such as chassis control adaptive, system progressive steering and a limited-slip differential VAQ. There will also be modes of driving thanks to the Cupra Drive Profile that lets you choose between Comfort, Sport, Eco, Individual and Cupra. The SEAT Leon Cupra accept orders in our country from the next month of January and the first units will arrive in march 2017.
