The new CUPRA Leon 1.5-litre TSI 150PS is now on order from just £29,515 OTR at Cupra UK.
The new engine option introduces greater affordability and choice to the brand’s iconic sporty hatchback. The 150PS turbo petrol direct injection TSI units are available with either a six-speed manual gearbox – a first for the CUPRA Leon range – or a seven-speed DSG-auto gearbox which is priced from £31,655 OTR.
Peak power of 150PS is produced between 5,000-6,000 rpm, with peak torque of 250Nm arriving between 1,500-3,500 rpm. Both gearbox options deliver 44.8-47.9mpg on the combined WLTP cycle and a top speed of 133mph. The DSG-auto delivers a marginally quicker 0-62mph time of 8.7 seconds compared to the manual’s time of 8.9 seconds.
Initially, the 150PS engine is available to order on just the Leon 5dr Hatch, with pricing for the Leon Estate to follow in due course. The CUPRA Leon 190PS TSI DSG-auto will also be available to order later this year.
CUPRA Leon is available with a choice of eight exterior paint options: non-metallic White; metallic Magnetic Tech Grey, Midnight Black and Nevada White; special metallic Desire Red and Graphene Grey; matte Magnetic Tech Grey and Petrol Blue.
