Cupra, the ‘performance’ sub-brand from Seat, are now providing two new engine choices for its Volkswagen Golf alternative.
The options include a 1.5-litre petrol engine making 148bhp, as well as a 2.0-litre making up to 187bhp.
Currently, only the Cupra Leon comes with a 2.0-litre engine making up to 296bhp, while the estate offers up to 306bhp.
Kai Vogler, Vice-presidant for Sales and Marketing at Cupra said: “We’re always developing the vehicle to maximise the offering for our customers, making it more customisable.
“With the introduction of these engines, our ambition is to achieve a big success with the Cupra Leon, as we have done with the Formentor.”
There will be two transmission types available for the 1.5 litre model - a manual or a DSG automatic, while the larger engine will come with just the DSG automatic.
The newest additions to the CUPRA Leon will also introduce a new V1 trim level.
Equipment includes 18-inch black and silver alloy wheels, LED headlight and taillights, a 12-inch infotainment system supporting nav and smartphone integration, keyless entry, predictive and adaptive cruise control, and a rear diffuser with twin exhaust pipes.
Pricing for the two powertrains has yet to be released, but will go on sale early October, available in hatchback and estate variants.
