    .............................................................

    This is the Cupra Leon! It's effectively a Spanish version of the VW Golf GTI, and Mat's on hand to see if this 'hot' Leon can compete with its German counterpart!

    Well for starters, there’s no denying that it looks the part. With sportier bumpers at both the front and the part, the Cupra Leon looks much more aggressive than the regular Leon (even if the bumper comes fitted with a number of fake vents 😳). It also comes equipped with a number of chassis and brake upgrades, naturally.

    As for performance, well there are three engines available to choose from. Top-of-the-range is the 300 (which we have here in this review) which is a 2-litre turbo petrol that’ll deliver 300hp and 400Nm of torque.

    And of course, given it's a ‘hot’ version of the Leon, you also get a number of interior design updates, along with Cupra badges throughout. The question is, should you really pay upwards of £32,000 for one? You’ll have to keep watching to find out!

The fact he described Bridgestones as grippy, whilst not being ironic, is crazy. Think Bridgestones are the worst tyres for road cars going. Literally anything is better. Even budget Uniroyals are better

I've got 280 version for over 7 years now and I think that this new shape is really bad. Pedals are the same as mine and the engine cover looks so cheap. Maybe in few years I'll start to like it but for now it's not impressive at all. Car without balls. The new ibiza fr looks better than this car.
