Compact sports car with more power and a new look

Both in the compact version or as the Sportstourer: the CUPRA Leon VZ has truly sporty qualities. ABT Sportsline uses this promising basis to significantly increase the power. Up to 370 HP (272 kW) are possible. In addition, there are cool 20-inch alloy wheels and lowering springs.


Since the first generation appeared in 1999, the Leon has enjoyed ongoing success in the dynamic compact class. Hitherto under the banner of SEAT, sporty models of the fourth and latest edition bear the bronze-coloured CUPRA emblem. And this can be interpreted as a sign of commitment. After all, the still relatively young brand has also dedicated itself to racing – as shown not least by the recent performance of the joint ABT CUPRA XE team in the Extreme E series. But back to the road: From the factory, the 2.0 TSI Leon VZ hatchback delivers a hefty 300 HP (221 kW) and 400 Nm. The all-wheel drive VZ Sportstourer delivers 310 HP (228 kW) and 400 Nm.  This provides a good platform from which the engineers at ABT Sportsline have been able to give the Spaniard even more fuego. With the ABT Power performance upgrade*, the data sheet now boasts a substantial 360 HP (265 kW) for the hatchback and 370 HP (272 kW) for the ST, each with 450 Nm.

Of course, the world’s largest automotive aftermarket and performance parts specialist for Audi and VW offers more for the aspiring compact car than a pure performance upgrade. For even sportier road holding, the Bavarian company also offers ABT suspension springs, which facilitate lowering of up to 30 mm all round. To create a more individual look, 20-inch ABT Sport GR wheels are available in matt or glossy black. These also feature in an attractive package that the Bavarians have compiled for the Leon:It also includes the aforementioned ABT Power performance upgrade to 360 or 370 HP and the suspension springs. The total price for this package amounts to EUR 5,990 including VAT, plus costs for installation and TÜV. For the latest additional options for the CUPRA Leon, please visit the ABT Configurator.
