Special edition Cupra estate is limited to fewer than 50 models in Britain, with carbon fibre styling additions and a £35,575 price tag
27 July 2018

Seat has released a new, limited-run Carbon Edition of the Leon ST Cupra. The four-wheel drive hot estate is available to order now priced from £35,575.

The Carbon Edition follows in the footsteps of the super-exclusive Leon Cupra R hatch launched earlier this year. Only 24 examples of that car were offered here, while the UK allocation of the Carbon Edition is said to be “fewer than 50”.

Based on the existing Leon ST Cupra 300, the Carbon Edition retains the same 296bhp 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol engine mated to a six-speed DSG gearbox. It adds new exterior touches such as carbon fibre side blades, carbon front and rear diffusers, and 19-inch black alloy wheels.

It’s only available with Monsoon Grey paintwork, while other exterior tweaks include new Cupra logos for the quad exhaust tips.

The only performance upgrade is standard-fit Brembo brakes, although the hot estate is still capable of 0-62mph in 4.9 seconds. Inside, Cupra bucket seats liven up an otherwise unchanged cabin.

Our Verdict

Seat Leon 5dr hatch

Seat's third-generation Leon is attractive and capable, but it can't quite reach the benchmark set by the imperious Volkswagen Golf

 As a Seat Ibiza owner with similar style Alloys might I warn against Wheel hub noise, in dry Weather like just now little Stones and dust can make them sound like there something wrong, I’ve found you need to wash them more often, preferably with a jet wash, just be careful with the jet Wash, these ones on this Cupra will be a Nightmare...!

 Being the Devils advocate here, won’t it mean cheaper faster than you mate transport?, my Wife’s on her second Seat in ten years and nothing went wrong or fell off her first one, can you say that about your Car?
