Review Summary
Breathtaking pace and everyday practicality make the SEAT Leon Cupra a formidable, if low-key, hot hatch.

Review Summary
The SEAT Leon Cupra is a sharp performance hatchback that's equally at home on a track or outside a supermarket.

Review Summary
It's easy to criticise the lack of imagination here, but at least it should mean that there is little cause to get bored of it. The Cupra is a job well done.

Review Summary
The latest Leon Cupra is a superb effort from SEAT. It has successfully produced a model that not only gives class-leading performance figures, but also manages to evoke the raw thrill of driving.

Review Summary
It’s uncanny just how much grip the SEAT Leon Cupra has; you’d be forgiven for wondering whether there was some drive being sent across the rear axle such is the level of composure and balance.

Review Summary
The 280's a better choice than a GTI thanks to its more purposeful manners and outright pace.

Not as cheap as you’d expect, but still one of the best hot hatches on sale.

Review Summary
Nicely judged hot hatch, with excellent power delivery, great handling and surprisingly good ride. Could use more communicative steering, but it’s good value in this market.

Review Summary
The Seat Leon Cupra 300 is a very rapid hatchback, but it's not quite as much fun to drive as its best rivals.
