Description

The first generation of the SEAT León was a C-Segment car that launched in 1999 with a 5 door hatchback bodystyle, based on the VW Group A4 (PQ34) platform (like the VW Golf IV and the Audi A3).

The Seat Leon Cupra 4, launched in 2001, was the first performance version of the model fitted with VW sourced, naturally aspirated, 2.8 liter VR6 engine that produced 204 hp (150 kw) of power and 270 Nm of torque, mated to a 6 speed manual gearbox. The car was equipped with 4WD system based on Haldex Traction multi plate clutch. The car accelerated from 0-100 km/h in 7,3 seconds and could reach a top speed of 237 km/h (147 mph). It also featured firmer suspension to improve handling and larger brakes.

Visually, the Leon Cupra 4 featured restyled and fully body-coloured front and rear bumpers (the front bumper is different from the other Cupra versions), extended side sills, rear spoiler, unique five spoke 17 inch wheels and twin exhaust pipes. Inside, the cabin was largely carried over from the fist generation Audi A3, featuring a sporty instrument cluster with white background and red lighting, three spoke steering wheel and aluminium pedals.
