A next-generation Cupra Leon will be launched in two years. SEAT engineers have begun testing pre-production prototypes on public roads.
A true highlight of the future eco-friendly Cupra Leon will be a 245-hp hybrid powertrain. The automaker promises acceleration from 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h) in 6.0 seconds. CO2 emissions will be around 50 g/km.
The current SEAT Leon Cupra is considered a ‘hot’ family hatchback due to its practicality. The next-generation car will be also a good choice for families allowing save on fuel and taxes.
The vehicle can be charged from an external power grid, and its electric-only driving range is 31 miles (50 km).
By the way, SEAT readies to produce not only a hot hatchback, but also a more practical sports wagon – the Cupra Leon ST.
Like the current model, the new Cupra Leon will come only with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.
Not so long ago, SEAT separated the Cupra brand to manufacture and sell high-performance models under it. Previously, Cupra was just a prefix to the name of conventional models.
The new Cupra Leon is due to arrive in 2021.
