Spanish carmakers Seat have been giving masses of the olé treatment to the arrival of their most potent model to date.
They’re calling the Leon Cupra R ‘awesome’, an overworked adjective at the best of times and a frequent tool of the copywriters in the motoring world.
Nonetheless, the new boy does look a pretty snazzy motor, for those who like that sort of thing – a 2-litre turbocharged engine, a 0-62mph time of 6.1 seconds and a maximum speed of 155mph.
Seat say it will return a touch under 35mpg, too, and with all the usual sporty badges, bells and whistles, it should find itself a niche.
MM verdict: a lot of oomph for your money.
