Powerful Cupra Leon 2021 seen on testsJune 7, 2019
Next year, the Spanish company SEAT and its high-performance division Cupra, will present a powerful version of the model Leon. Standard Leon will go on sale next year.
A couple of minutes ago, journalists published a fresh batch of “spyware” photos, which show a Spanish novelty – the high-performance wagon Cupra Leon ST. Looking much more interesting than ever before, the new Cupra Leon had low ground clearance and Brembo red brake calipers on the front axle. We think that the prototype lacked a serial body, as it looked about the same as the regular version of the model, seen earlier this year.
There is another important hint indicating the high-performance nature of the encountered prototype Spanish car, in addition to low ground clearance and Brembo brakes. We’re talking about double rear exhausts, located right below the terrible fake linings that you will find on a regular model.
SEAT Cupra used the rear bumper of a standard car, but it goes without saying that in the production version they will be neatly integrated into a more interesting looking bumper.
A few months ago, SEAT CEO Luca de Meo announced plans to electrify the next Cupra Leon by introducing a hybrid propulsion system with a plug-in module. The motor will get at least 242 hp power. At the same time, we will not see an additional cap for the charging port on this prototype, unless camouflage does not hide it. There is a possibility that we will see two variants of the Cupra Leon, one with the PHEV installation and the basic model without electrified installation.
Not so long ago, our publication wrote that Cupra arranged the first photo shoot for its Formentor crossover in Mallorca.
