The new Seat Leon Cupra R

The new Seat Leon Cupra RUtilising a subtly upgraded version of the standard Cupra’s 2-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine, power has been raised from 296bhp to 306bhp. Oddly, SEAT has confirmed that the raised power output will only apply to models equipped with the 6-speed manual; DSG cars will do without the modest power upgrade. As a result, the manual Cupra R is officially SEAT’s most powerful car ever.

Carbon fibre makes an appearance, as you’d expect, with trinkets on the front and rear spoilers, side skirts and rear diffuser as well as copper wing mirrors and rims. Inside, the Cupra has also had the copper and carbon-fibre treatment, and a steering wheel specially upholstered in Alcantara, of which there are three colours to choose from; black, grey and the exclusive matte grey.

Seat will also demonstrate the potential of CNG cars by presenting a compressed natural gas-powered Ibiza. It follows the Leon and Mii in the market, and it uses a 1.0-liter engine, with two tanks: one for petrol and one for CNG, which give it a combined fuel range of almost 1,200km (746miles), out of which 390km (242miles) on CNG.

Seat also announced that the new compressed natural gas-powered Ibiza hatchback will go on display in Frankfurt. It says that is “strong proof” of its trust in the alternative fuel, which it claims emits 85 per cent less nitrogen oxide than diesel engines and 25 per cent less CO2 than petrol.
