Seat Leon Cupra 280
Seat’s appearance does not make a proper impression. No, Leon is beautiful and sophisticated, but the aggression in him is given out only by the letters “Cupra 280” and two exhaust pipes. So you will not understand right away that this is one of the fastest front-wheel drive cars. Although, maybe someone such European minimalism will like.
The interior is typical of VAG vehicles. Solid interior materials, perfectly fitted panels with smooth joints, neat firmware on the controls and interior. Everything is very high quality, noble, but. boring. Of the sporting attributes here – only the steering wheel and bucket seats, though you can’t find fault with the latter. They perfectly fix the driver and do not let go of their arms even at the sharpest turns.
But, all this is just a prelude. The main thing that is in this car is a powerful two-liter turbocharged engine. Its power is 280 horsepower. It works in tandem with a dual-clutch robotic transmission that has six gears.
Passport data reports 5.8 seconds to the first hundred and 250 kilometers per hour, which the fastest Leon can develop.
To say that this hatchback is fast means to say nothing. Good traction appears already from 1200 rpm and grows avalanche up to 5500 rpm. In this speed range, the car is endowed with a truly violent, and sometimes indomitable, disposition. Starting from a traffic light, or accelerating immediately – easy exercises for the “Spanish athlete.” To be at least half the wing ahead of him, you need to have a very impressive herd under the hood. And then, if they manage to overtake, then only until the first turn.
The Seat Leon is one of the fastest front-wheel drive cars that has ever conquered the Nurburgring. Only Renault Megane R.S. is faster. Trophy and the new Civic Type-R with a 310 horsepower engine. It’s no secret that the Nordschleife North Loop has a complex configuration, which means that you can only show good time with a well-tuned chassis.
Sharp steering and the lack of banks allow you to take turns on the verge of possible. The understeer is neutral, so you can’t be afraid of drifts. The stiff suspension will not let you relax and constantly keeps the driver and passengers in good shape.
Summing up, I would like to note that the Seat Leon with Cupra 280 is one of the most charismatic cars with a front axle drive. In the city, and indeed everyday movements can cause discomfort due to the stiffer suspension and explosive nature of the motor. However, Leon will bring true pleasure as a car for driving..
