Seat has revealed a new styling option for the Leon FR+, its well-equipped rival to the Golf GTI and GTD. The Supercopa pack comes from Seat Sport, and is named for the marque's long-running European race series.

Bumpers are modified front and rear, while special side skirts and a larger rear spoiler complete the bodywork changes that are confirmed by 'Supercopa' badging. The FR+'s 18-inch wheels are replaced with BBS alloys of the same size, and there are chrome finishers to the twin exhaust pipes. The kit is available in a range of paint shades including Speed Blue.

Picked as options, Supercopa specification would cost around £3000, but the pack adds just £750 to Leon FR+ prices, which start at £22,530 for the 168bhp TDI with manual six-speed box. A 208bhp 2.0-litre petrol is also available, and either engine can be paired with VW Group's six-speed DSG.

FR+ kit includes five-inch colour sat nav screen, DAB radio, Bluetooth with streaming audio, adaptive xenon headlamps and rear parking aid.

An attractive car until you see the side profile, then it looks just average,still can't get away from the poor man's GTI label though, which is a shame.

The Leons a bit of a mixed bag, they're definitely way behind now on interior quality, but each version i've driven, i've really liked.

The 265PS Cupra R in particular was brilliant, extremely fast and raw! I preferred it to the Golf R actually.

I'm not sure if it is just the colour of the pictured car, or something to do with the body kit but I think the new BBS wheels make the car look under wheeled, something the old straight spoke design never did.
