Seat Leon Cupra Facelift

The 2009 version of the Seat Leon, the Seat range is the most powerful and spectacular car as it features even more impressive looks because of different elements introduced on the inside and outside. The highlight of the car is its new silhouette, featuring complex, innovative black honeycomb cooling vents at the front beneath the central grille. Two black highlights are being supported by the front bumper, one at each side. At the back we can see a very visible black molding at the bottom of the bumper, a polished steel oval tailpipe and the characteristic model name in the center of the hatch. From the side we can see a lower ground clearance compared to the basic Leon version, making the car look and feel more like a racing unit. To transfer the output to the road, the engineers have provided incredible 18-inch rims. For the interior, the specialists have offered a leather steering wheel with aluminum color inserts and the CUPRA logo at the bottom and a matching gear knob. The new Leon features aluminum pedals and white faced instrument dials. The seats have true racing bucket styling, featuring integrated headrests. These seats offer tremendous side support when dealing with corners and driving comfort. There is also another option available in black leather upholstery with white cross-stitching. Under the hood, the new Leon features a 2.0-liter TSI engine capable of generating 240 horsepower. It provides incredible performance and exceptional fuel consumption. The output enables the car to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 6.4 seconds and to reach a top speed of 247 km/h. The model uses 8.3 liters of fuel per 100 km. in terms of safety the engineers have provided ABS and TCS, ESP with EBA emergency braking, low tire pressure warning, driver and passenger airbag, side airbag and head airbag.
