Plug-in performance for Cupra Leon
Cupra, the go-hard arm of Seat, has released the clearest image yet of its new plug-in performance hybrid that will go up against the likes of Focus ST. An official reveal is set for the 20th of this month. Both hatchback and estate-bodied Sportstourer versions will be released.
The lone image, a full frontal shot, shows off a dramatic front bumper that houses a massive front air dam. Above it sits a grille similar to that of the current Seat Leon, but with the copper-coloured Cupra logo in its place.
CEO Wayne Griffiths joked that this will become “the King of Leons”, clearly a fan of the indie band Kings of Leon. Or perhaps Disney’s the Lion King. This adds to the Cupra line-up, which is set to expand gradually beyond Ateca and Leon models.
