Interesting, the hatch is supposed to be twin pipes, and the ST with quads. The lack of roof rails would indicate this is the hatch after all. Either they've changed their minds or this is a mule.

Any updates on release date? The Cupra facebook page indicated end of Oct but now they don't know. Octavia VRS and Golf GTE (why dont they do an estate version?!) have been released so surely this cant be far off? Has covid lockdown held things back?

On another note I'm assuming you can get a Cupra serviced at Seat and dont have to go to a specific Cupra dealer?

Desperate for a new company car but may have to go with the Skoda if the Cupra isnt available.

Good find. CUPRA Leon is missing its side skirts and has a quad exhaust on the hatch - something I discovered on the video on the infotainment unit - originally it was going to have a twin pipe - wondering if the lower powered petrol, hoping the 300 will have the quad as standard. That's also the Formentor with the funny exhaust layout (2.5 engine).
I think the side skirts are only standard on the UK spec cars. Everything seems to be an option on cars sold on the continent, including side skirts. It's nice that you get more standard equipment in the UK but my main concern is I don't want to have to get the car with the one wheel option that trim level comes with if I would rather have another design.

I read something somewhere that suggested the lower bhp petrol will now have a twin exhaust and the 300 will be quad as standard but who knows! That 2.5 in the Formentor does sound nice!

I love the confidence Jordi has at the ring. Remember him showing me all the "not for public" videos of near crashes etc when they were setting the Sub8 record years ago.

I've done about 10 laps of that place and it scares me sh**less.
