NOW the number 12 plate registrations are out Seat has celebrated the period by giving a new look to its Leon FR+.
The Spanish carmaker has given its popular performance model an even sportier look by adding a special edition styling kit.
These alterations to the already sleek looking Leon gives the turbocharged two-litre petrol and diesel FR+ an even sharper look.
It now reflects more closely some of the brand’s recent motorsport successes and that was the plan. The new Supercopa is built by the same engineers at Seat Sport who created Seat’s WTCC title-winning cars of recent years.
Even the name reflects the sporting heritage, Supercopa being the moniker of the company’s successful global one-make race series.
Boasting bespoke ‘Supercopa’ badges the special edition car’s comprehensive styling additions include extensively re-worked front and rear bumpers, smart side skirts, a more pronounced tailgate spoiler, bespoke BBS 18-inch alloy wheels and unique chrome-tipped, twin exhausts.
Seat aficionados will recognise, of course, that the Leon FR+ which forms the basis of the special edition new Supercopa is a generously equipped offering that’s a significant step up from the ‘standard’ FR trim in terms of both performance and equipment.
Equipped with SEAT’s powerful 2.0 TSI 211 PS petrol or 2.0 TDI CR 170 PS turbodiesel engines the Leon FR+ takes the FR trim and adds arch-filling 18-inch alloy wheels; the Seat Media System 2.2 which includes satellite-navigation with five-inch colour touchscreen and dynamic route guidance, DAB radio, Bluetooth audio streaming and SD card slot; Bluetooth phone connection; bi-xenon headlights with AFS (Adaptive Front-lighting System) and rear parking sensors.
Representing great value, the new Supercopa editions feature £3,000-worth of Seat Sport body kit for just £750 more than standard versions of the Leon FR+. Prices therefore start from just £22,530 RRP on-the-road for the 2.0 TDI 170 PS six-speed manual model.
Leon FR+ Supercopa models are available to test drive, and order, at Seat dealers nationwide. For more details on the new model log on to http://www.seat.co.uk/content/uk/brand/en/models/leon/versions/supercopa.html
