The most powerful model that SEAT has ever made for the road, the new SEAT Leon 5DR CUPRA 300 sets the benchmark for performance, style and driving pleasure. Its sharp lines and athletic proportions are as stunning as ever, yet now they conceal technology that makes the 2017 CUPRA 300 even more exciting to drive. Boasting no less than 300PS and 380Nm, the new model has performance like never before, yet it is now both safer and easier to drive and to live with as well, thanks to technology including Traffic Jam Assist, Pedestrian Protection, SEAT Full Link and wireless smartphone charging. With the Leon CUPRA 300’s release date being March 2017, there’s not long to wait before you can get behind the wheel. In the meantime take a look at the Leon Cupra SC and the Leon Cupra ST.

The CUPRA 300’s bold styling sets it apart from everything else on the road. Redesigned front and rear bumpers give the CUPRA a more athletic look, and other touches to raise the styling bar of this model include full LED headlights, dual chrome exhaust pipes, 19" alloy wheels with titanium finish and eye-catching red brake calipers. Just looking at it, you’re left in no doubt about the 5DR CUPRA’s potential. Heightening the sense of occasion you feel when entering the cabin are front Sports seats in alcantara with simil leather side bolsters and white accents, aluminium finishes for the pedals and sill protectors and a flat-bottom three-spoke steering wheel finished in perforated leather and white stitching.
Now with an extraordinary 300PS, the uprated 2.0 TSI engine is the most powerful SEAT has ever made. And with torque increasing from 350Nm to 380Nm, produced from 1800rpm to 5500rpm, a new level of performance is achieved across the entire range rev, with incredible acceleration almost from tick-over to the red line. Combined with the ultra-fast direct-shift gearbox, power deliver is seamlessly smooth yet electrifying fast. The automatic gearbox combines the comfort of an automatic with the response and control of a manual, so you get fast, silky-smooth gearshifts with no loss of power.
Progressive Steering System
Adapts the feel of the steering to the speed of your CUPRA. The higher the speed, the greater the steering feedback, yet at lower speeds, when manoeuvring into a tight parking space for example, the steering is made lighter so that less effort is required.
Electronic self-locking differential
This feature gives the CUPRA sharper yet safer handling and performance. By transferring power to the outer front wheel when accelerating out of curves, it improves traction and avoids power loss. The result is better handling, prevention of understeer and a more exciting experience when you’re making the most of the car’s agility.
Dynamic Chassis Control
Comfort and manoeuvrability are at the heart of this system, where the car’s suspension instantly reacts to the road conditions to ensure you get the best drive no matter what’s happening beneath you. The damping can be made firmer or softer as well, for sharper cornering responses or for a more comfortable ride.
CUPRA Drive Profile
The driving experience of the CUPRA 300 can be adjusted to suit the driver’s tastes, with the responsiveness of the steering, the stiffness of the suspension, the sound of the engine and the feel of the accelerator pedal are all adjustable. By switching between Comfort, Sport and CUPRA modes, or even adjusting each area separately for an Individual setting, the CUPRA 300’s drive can be as exciting or relaxing as you like.
The new Leon 5DR is always looking out for you, with a host of safety systems now more extensive than ever.
A highlight of the new Leon 5DR CUPRA 300 is its integrated Media System Plus infotainment system, now with an eight-inch colour touchscreen. It’s the heart of the Leon’s infotainment technology, where the driver can control – through the touchscreen or voice recognition – and access all the other features. These can include SEAT Full Link, for complete smartphone connectivity (via Apple CarPlay, Google Android Auto and Mirror Link compatibility), 3D navigation, a 10GB jukebox and DAB radio tuner. And for the first time the Leon has a Connectivity Hub, that comprises a smartphone wireless charger and GSM antenna amplifier for areas with low signal coverage.
LED lights are smarter and more efficient than halogen lights, and bring daylight visibility to the night. Making use of LED technology both in the main and dipped beams, pure white light from the headlights results in improved vision and therefore less strain on the driver’s eyes. At the rear means, LED lights are faster responding which gives following drivers more time to react.
