I was always confident that the Seat Leon ST Cupra will be a killer at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, even from the start, when the model was first caught on shots some time ago. And I am not saying this from a subjective point of view, I just simply knew it will make a good impression.

And so it happened, as the Seat Leon ST Cupra has received a good round of applause, both from the media and the public present at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show.

The first think one might depict from the model, would be the body paintjob, as the model will be seen for now on with the White Line, the Black Line as well as the Orange Line finishes, complemented by the Performance Pack, consisting of the Brembo braking system, the 18-inch alloy wheels with black or orange finish and much more.

More features include the LED headlights and taillights, the roof mounted spoiler in the 280, or the 19-inch alloy wheels available in the 280 version. Inside, the Seat Leon ST Cupra will also come with the Media System Plus infotainment system and a few more.

Apart from the gorgeous look, the Seat Leon ST Cupra is also coming with powerful engines being fitted on different models, and the ST Cupra is no exception, the model coming with the 2.0-liter turborcharged four-cylinder unit, now sporting between 265 horsepower and 280 horsepower, as well as 350 Nm of torque for both power outputs.

The Cupra TSI 260 will need 6.2 seconds from 0 to 100 km/h, while the 2.0-liter TSI 265 with DSG, will need 6.1 seconds. On the other hand, the 2.0-liter TSI 280 PS will go 6.1 seconds and the same TSI 280 DSG goes 6 seconds, at a top speed of 250 km/h.
