Overall verdict

The Top Gear car review: Seat Leon Cupra



Running costs and reliability

With claimed economy figures ranging from 47.9mpg and 158g/km to 39.8mpg and 164g/km, the Leon Cupra sits in the centre of the hot hatch field for daily running costs – don’t expect much more than mid-30s mpg in the real-world.

And you need to be careful how you spec the car, there’s plenty on the options list to tempt those pounds from your pocket, like the 19-inch wheels and rear spoiler. All versions come with LED headlights, and also come with the aforementioned Dynamic Chassis Control and the mechanical front diff – both crucial parts of the Cupra’s repertoire.
