Fully expect to get some hefty discounts but that high list price is pushing it into the premium car tax bracket. I also can’t believe that on the £40k cupra you’ve got to pay £500 for metallic paint yet the £23k Leon se gets it at no cost 🤷‍♂️
 

Seriously?

Haha, in Sweden I have to pay roughly 1000-1100 gbp in roadtax per year the first 3 Years. So you guys have it quite good, despite premium car tax :)
And yeah, the paint thing is weird, but metallic paint is usally not included by manufacturers unless its some limited time special.

What planet are they on? Golf r is less than £40k (for the hatch).
Agree the Cupra Leons are priced far too high, certainly compared to the Mk3 Cupra's but also against competitors. Not seen a road test yet of the Petrol300 model, will be interesting to see how it's rated.

The Golf R is only under £40k rrp if you stick with the free white paint and maybe 1 cheap option or black and no options. The colour choices are pathetic, limited to white, black (£625) or blue (£755).

I specced a Golf R as I would want one: Blue, DCC, Heated Front seats, 19in Estorils, Carpet mats = £41980

Looking at the pricing you guys are posting is shocking.
Didn’t think they were going to be that kind of money.
The trim levels seem a joke for the Brits.
Can’t see them making the sales they need.
Not sure the Brits are that stupid.

My old Civic Type R was 16k brand spanking new in 2008.

i wish we were still in 2008 prices.

funnily enough since 2008 my wages haven’t more than doubled.... unlike car prices!

Be interesting to see how many SEAT & Cupra cars are sold in Spain, apart from the bog standard spec cars they have always been to expensive for the Spanish to buy. Especially Cupra models.
