CUPRA Leon expands engine options

  • CUPRA is boosting the Leon’s range of engines to deliver even more choice and value for customers
  • The new line-up of petrol engines will include 150PS and 190PS units, aligning Leon with the CUPRA Formentor range
  • New powertrain options will be available to order in the UK from early October

CUPRA is boosting the Leon line-up by broadening the range of engines available, delivering greater value and sophistication for customers.

Both the Leon 5-door hatchback and Estate will be available with a 1.5-litre TSI 150PS petrol engine and a 2.0-litre TSI 190PS petrol engine. The 150PS unit will be available with both manual and DSG-auto gearboxes, while the 190PS unit will be available exclusively with a DSG-auto gearbox.

“The CUPRA Leon is already a king on the road, but we’re always developing the vehicle to maximise the offering for our customers, making it more customisable and grow its sales targets,” said Kai Vogler, Vice-president for Sales and Marketing at CUPRA. “With the introduction of these engines, our ambition is to achieve a big success with the CUPRA Leon, as we have done with the Formentor.”

The newest additions to the CUPRA Leon will also introduce a generously equipped V1 trim level, further enhancing the value of the Leon family.

Standard equipment will include 18” Machined sport black and silver alloy wheels, LED headlight and taillights, a 12” infotainment system with navigation and Full Link smartphone integration, CUPRA drive profile selection, KESSY Advanced keyless entry and start, Predictive and Adaptive Cruise Control and a rear diffuser with twin exhaust pipes.

UK orders for the new variants of the Leon range will open from early October, starting with the Leon 5-door 1.5-litre 150PS DSG-auto V1, with the other variants to follow soon after.
