Cupra Leon 2024 Review Release Date And Price

Cupra Leon 2024. The new SEAT Leon Cupra is not in fact a SEAT. It is a Cupra Leon, identical to the Cupra Ateca. So don’t go calling it a SEAT, Okay? Along with its new moniker, it receives copper accents and a large tribal emblem on the front bumper. Indeed, regarding that… It resembles a stag party tattoo, but at least it allows you to distinguish between the Cupra and the new Leon.

Cupra Leon 2024 Drivetrains

Each of the four variations of the Cupra Leon has a unique powerplant.

The standard V is powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that generates 140kW of power and 320Nm of torque. This is equipped with a wet dual-clutch seven-speed transmission. The VZ likewise employs a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine and a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission, but its powerplant is rated at 180kW and 370Nm.

The VZe combines a 1.4-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine with an electric motor to produce a system output of 180kW and 400Nm. It employs a wet dual-clutch transmission with six speeds. The VZx is powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine producing 221kW and 400Nm of torque.

Except for the flagship VZx, which requires 98 RON premium unleaded, other Leon models require a minimum of 95 RON premium unleaded. The plug-in hybrid (PHEV) Leon VZe reportedly offers an electric-only range of up to 60 kilometers.

Cupra Leon 2024 News

In 2023, Cupra’s most economical and smallest vehicle, the Leon hatchback, will receive a new entry-level variant. The initial drive-away price for the Leon V in 2023 has been set at $47,990. The 2.0-liter turbocharged engine produces 140 kW of power.

The Leon V is priced at $43,990 before on-road fees, while the Leon VZx is priced at $61,490 before on-road fees. The price of all existing Cupra Leon models has increased by between $400 and $500 over the pre-update models, except for the entry-level V, which is not yet available for purchase.

Models of the 2023 Cupra Leon have replaced their 10-inch touchscreens with 12-inch units. Additionally, scrolling indications have been replaced with static indicators in the taillights.


The Cupra Leon features the same aggressive appearance as the new SEAT Leon. So, it appears somewhat sportier than the previous model, but it doesn’t go as far as the Honda Civic Type R. There are large air intakes and a low splitter, along with revised side skirts, a lowered suspension, and 19-inch aluminum wheels.

Depending on the engine, either two or four exhaust pipes are provided. In addition, there is a diffuser and a roof-mounted spoiler, which are not merely for show. They contribute to the new Cupra Leon being 8% more aerodynamic than its predecessor.

Big air intakes, large wheels, and copper accents characterize the appearance of the new Cupra Leon.


The interior of the new Cupra Leon is virtually identical to that of the SEAT Leon. Thus, everything is quite simple and minimalist. There is a large 10-inch infotainment display, a computerized driver’s display, and few buttons cluttering the interior. Similar to the Cupra Ateca, there is a redesigned sports steering wheel with a flat bottom, copper stitching, and more buttons.

Copper accents are also present on the air vents. In case you had forgotten what the front grille looks like, these have the same shape. Also included are various sport seats.

The Cupra Leon features a 10-inch infotainment display and a digital instrument cluster.

New Cupra Leon estate

The Cupra Leon will not be available as a cool-looking three-door like the original Leon SC. However, it is available as an estate. From the front, this cargo hauler appears identical to a conventional five-door. However, it is impossible to conceal its Kardashian-sized boot from the rear.

At least the brake lights are as cool as those on the hatchback. Overall, there is 30 litres more room in the trunk than in the five-door model, and the trunk’s wider, lower opening should make loading easier.

The Cupra Leon estate features 30 liters additional trunk space, as well as 310 horsepower and all-wheel drive.


The new Cupra Leon will be available with three gasoline engines. All are 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engines. However, you can choose between 245hp, 300hp, and 310hp models. The entry-level 245hp variant will compete with the next Volkswagen Golf GTI. But, unlike the VW, it will be available with five doors and an estate.

The same applies to the variant with 300 horsepower. However, the range-topping 310 horsepower engine is exclusive to the Cupra Leon ST estate. Ideal for performing rapid pit stops as opposed to pit stops.

Almost every other 300 horsepower hot hatch comes equipped with four-wheel drive. Ultimately, it assists to maximize grip when the accelerator is floored. Not the Leon Cupra. Choose a 245-horsepower or 300-horsepower model, and all of that power is sent only to the front wheels, just like the dated Honda Civic Type R.

You do receive an automated limited-slip differential to prevent the front wheels from wasting all that power. In addition, there are a number of electronic stability programs to keep you headed in the right way. If you desire the security of four-wheel drive, there is still the 310-horsepower estate with standard four-wheel drive.

The Cupra Leon eHybrid has a top speed of 245 mph and an electric-only range of 37 miles.


The Cupra Leon is among the first hot hatchbacks to feature hybrid propulsion. This version, dubbed eHybrid, is equipped with a 150hp 1.4-liter gasoline engine and a 114hp electric motor. Together, they produce 245 horsepower, the same as the entry-level 2.0-liter gasoline automobile.

It may not sound like much, but the electric motor in this hybrid vehicle contributes to its massive 400Nm of torque. This is equivalent to the range-topping 310 horsepower. Who said hybrids had to be dull, Leon? In addition to being speedy, the electric motor allows for up to 37 miles of petrol-free driving. A full charge requires 3.5 hours from a wall box and 6 hours from a three-pin socket.

Regardless of the engine combination you choose, an automatic transmission is standard. It is a dual-clutch transmission, just like the older Leon Cupra, Golf R, and Audi S3 models.
