Cupra Leon Performance

The performance for the excellent contract hire Cupra Leon comes from a 2.0-litre petrol TSI engine producing either 245 HP or 300 HP. The engine produces torque of 370Nm, or 400Nm. That is a lot of power for a hatchback, and this is delivered via the front-wheels using a seven-speed automatic dual-clutch transmission.

For those wanting to enjoy grip and performance, the all-wheel drive version, the Cupra Leon 4Drive is probably the best bet. The engine delivers 310 HP for a 0 to 62 mph sprint time of 4.8 seconds, while fuel economy is around 35mpg.

    Car lease background


And for those who want better economy, the Cupra Leon car lease is available as a plug-in hybrid, the e-Hybrid. Drivers get a 1.4-litre petrol TSI engine producing 150 HP and an electric motor delivering 115 HP for a combined output of 245 HP. The torque is 400Nm.

The attraction for the hybrid is that drivers get to enjoy economy of 217 mpg with emissions of 30g/km - which makes it a sound choice for company car drivers with a low Benefit-in-Kind rate. Plus, there's an electric range of 32 miles to make the commute attractive. The 0 to 62 mph sprint time is 6.7 seconds with a top speed of 140 mph.



The interior has been well put together, and there's a plusher look and feel than some rivals, including the Ford Focus ST, for example. The cabin itself is spacious, even for tall adults.


There's a nice 10.0-inch digital display and various driving modes to sharpen the throttle or firm up the suspension, though never to an uncomfortable extent. The steering wheel has a flat bottom, and drivers also get smartphone compatibility, and the infotainment system is easy to use - it has voice control.

The Cupra is also a safe car with adaptive cruise control, blind spot monitoring, lane-keeping assist and traffic sign recognition.
