The fastest ever road car from SEAT (with the £500 ABT option ticked).



The final last hurrah for the MK3 Leon.



The final SEAT CUPRA model to be made, now the reigns are fully in the new CUPRA brand’s hands.



Watch our video review below to find out what we thought of the car compared to the 5 door Leon CUPRA R and the Leon CUPRA 300.









As we like to do in our video reviews, we’ve included close up audio from the quad exhaust from the outside of the car.

The exhaust sounds pretty good from the outside (for me anyway haha) does the R ST have the GPF like the new 290 Cupra?

Great review as always, I don't see the forum show plates on the car after detailing haha

Ta. Plates were in the garage, this was a rush one :headhurt:

Yes it does sound good from the outside, just can't hear much in the cabin. I'm wondering if they don't have the sound actuator fitted much like the CUPRA Ateca. Not sure about GPF, possibly - was originally going to have 370.

Same car as @Syphon had was thrashed around the Proving Track at Silverstone when I was down there. Didn’t get a run in it myself

This car definitely has the sound actuator, turned mine off after a few days.

Can definitely hear the exhaust more now the car has done a few miles, now on 1500miles.

Little error spotted on the tech specs chart, it lists 400nm and should be 440nm.
