Seat Leon Cupra R ST


Aside from introducing its new Cupra sub-brand, also took the time to add another member to the estate family. Set to go on display at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show, this is the new Leon R ST, which will look to take on the latest Volkswagen Golf R estate.

In many ways, the estate shares a lot in common with the limited-number Leon Cupra R hatchback that made its debut last year. Under the bonnet, there’s a 2.0 litre TSI engine that churns out 300 PS, with power going to all four wheels via a six-speed DSG transmission and 4Speed all-wheel drive system.

Official performance figures aren’t out yet, but you can expect a 0-100 km/h time close to the hatchback’s 5.7 seconds, along with a top speed of 249 km/h. The Spanish carmaker also stated the car will have an “emotive exhaust sound” and performance brakes, so upgrades in these areas will be very likely.

Design-wise, the performance estate is again, similar to the hatchback, with various parts of the car receiving a copper-coloured finish. There’s also a carbon-fibre front splitter and some 19-inch wheels, but the flared arches seen on the hatchback are absent here.
