Seat has unveiled two new performance models – the Leon Cupra and Ibiza FR.
The Cupra badge is reserved for the fastest versions of any Seat model, and the Leon will be powered by a 237bhp version of the 2.0-litre TSI engine.
Top speed is 153mph, while 0-62 mph takes 6.4sec. Despite this, average fuel consumption is an impressive 34mpg.
Visually the Leon Cupra follows the standard hot Seat formula, with a large central honeycomb grille in the front bumper, with the word 'Cupra' in white lettering.
The rear bumper features a large matt black section and there is a large oval tailpipe.
The car sits lower than other Leons, on 18-inch five-spoke alloy wheels.
Inside there is a leather-covered flat bottom steering wheel with aluminium colour inserts, deep bucket seats, and aluminium pedals.
The new Leon Cupra features standard equipment such as the new XDS system (an electronic system which mimics the function of a mechanical limited slip differential), anti-lock brakes and traction control, and stability control with electronic brake assist emergency braking.
