New 2021 Cupra Leon Estate on sale now priced from £38,475

Cupra has launched an estate version of its Leon hot hatchback, with 306bhp and four-wheel drive

Cupra Leon

This is the new Cupra Leon Estate. It’s a more practical (and more powerful) version of the sporty Spanish brand’s hot hatchback, which is available to order now, priced from £38,475.

Unlike the Cupra Leon hatchback, which shares its 296bhp front-wheel drive underpinnings with the Volkswagen Golf GTI Clubsport, this new estate utilises the 2.0 TSI engine and four-wheel drive running gear from the Volkswagen Golf R.

The turbocharged 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol engine is a little less powerful in the Cupra than it is in the Golf, but it still has enough grunt to propel the hot Leon Estate from 0-62mph in 4.9 seconds, before reaching an electronically top speed of 155mph.

Cupra also says that the Leon Estate will return up to 34.4mpg on the WLTP combined cycle, with CO2 emissions as low as 186g/km.

Buyers have their choice of two trim-levels. The more affordable Cupra Leon Estate VZ2 comes as standard with 19-inch alloy wheels, LED headlamps, gloss black roof rails, adaptive dampers, a quad-exit exhaust system and the same aggressive body kit as the hatchback. 

Inside, there’s a flat-bottomed steering wheel, bucket seats, three-zone climate control, an ambient interior lighting system and the company’s trademark copper trim pieces. A digital instrument cluster also comes as standard, along with a 10-inch infotainment system.

There’s plenty of safety equipment, too, including a dynamic road sign display, high-beam assist, predictive adaptive cruise control, lane assist and a blind spot monitoring system, which can even warn passengers of approaching traffic when they exit the vehicle.

The VZ3 model is priced from £40,535 and adds a set of aerodynamic 19-inch alloy wheels, a wireless smartphone charger, heated front seats, leather upholstery and a powered tailgate.

Cupra also offers a couple of optional extras for the Leon Estate, such as panoramic roof, a towbar and a choice of seven paint finishes. VZ3 models can also be optioned with petrol blue nappa leather seat upholstery.
