PostHeaderIcon ABT SEAT Leon ST CUPRA Carbon Packs 370 PS

As special as the limited edition Leon ST Cupra Carbon Edition is the way comes out of the factory, there are ways to make this hot little estate car even better. And the most straight forward of those ways is adding power, as shown here by the ABT SEAT Leon ST CUPRA Carbon.

Whereas the standard car packs 300 horsepower from a 2.0 liter TSI engine, corresponding to the fact that it is limited to 300 units, The hotted-up ABT SEAT Leon ST CUPRA Carbon offers an extra 70 PS. That is a remarkable upgrade by any standards, and especially so because it has been achieved through the magic of electronics. It’s the result of ABT Engine Control (AEC) unit, and what’s more, it ups the torque power from 380 to 460 Nm.

Similar upgrades are available for ABT SEAT Leon ST CUPRA Carbon Edition and other CUPRA models with other engines. There is the 1.4 TSI with now 160 HP (118 kW) instead of originally 122 HP (90 kW) and the 2.0 TDI with 210 HP (154 kW) instead of 184 HP (135 kW). Other cool upgrades available include ABT downpipes, sports stabilizers set, DR and ER-C as well as the new SPORT GR 20 inch wheelswith interesting designs, and the ABT integrated entrance light with its logo for all Leons.

This car is now worthy of the title ABT has given it. They call is the “LEON KING!”

PostHeaderIcon SEAT Arona and Ibiza Get Fully Digital Cockpit

Audi thought they had done something amazing when they launched their Virtual Cockpit with a large screen in place of the tradition instruments and binnacles. But now that feature has become the norm for pretty much all segments.I mean, SEAT announced they are adding a Digital Cockpit to the Arona and Ibiza models. So, go figure.

SEAT’s proposition for a Digital Cockpit includes a 10.25” interactive, customisable display, complemented with a main in-dash touchscreen. The digital binnacle comes as standard in XCELLENCE Lux and FR Sport trim for Arona, Ibiza, Leon and Ateca, and it prides itself for being a pixel-dense unit, with a resolution of 1280 x 480. We did predict in an editorial a while back that cars will soon be judged based on the amount of pixels their screen have rather than their power and performance. And here we are.

In any case, SEAT’s Digital Cockpit provides three main provides three main modes of Classic, Digital and Dynamic. The difference in these modes are about the graphics really, as they all give you the vital information you need about navigation, music, phone, driving data and assistance information. As far as the speed and fuel gauge are concerned, we think the traditional dials work better than all these shining lights. But we have to admit we quite like how this digital dash presents the navigation data. It make the map easier to read and less distracting to use on the road.

“We are fully committed to offering our customers the best quality design, bringing in the precision of a classic gauge into the digital world, where each pixel is designed with the same accuracy”, said Alejandro Mesonero-Romanos, Director of Design at SEAT. “Taking advantage of this disruptive digital environment, our interior car design upgrades to the next level.”

PostHeaderIcon Official: SEAT Leon ST CUPRA Carbon Edition

There is a new Spanish armada headed for Britain’s shores, but it’s a friendly one this time. The 2019 SEAT Leon ST CUPRA Carbon Edition is a limited edition of just 50 copies for the UK, and it brings to the table a level of style and sophistication not usually associated with SEAT cars. 

Priced at £35,575, SEAT Leon ST CUPRA Carbon Edition is a pricey little sod, but it is feature-rich. The hot estate car comes with a 2.0 TSI 300PS DSG-auto 4Drive powertrain system that will surely satisfy the needs of every kind of driver in terms of performance. In terms of styling, the car comes with, as the name suggests, carbon fibre side blades and front and rear diffusers. these are complemented with quad exhaust pipes, Monsoon Grey paint job, Brembo brakes, 19-inch black alloy wheels and CUPRA bucket seats. But the real strength of the Leon ST Carbon remains the exclusivity factor, which means it’ll have stronger residual value as well.




Richard Harrison, Managing Director of SEAT UK, said: “Following the success of the special edition CUPRA R, we know that there is demand for limited-run models from customers looking for something truly special. The Leon ST CUPRA Carbon Edition doesn’t only deliver stunning and unique looks, but we believe the enhanced performance and competitive price will be a real draw.

PostHeaderIcon Seat Leon Cupra Evo 17

Although overshadowed by the Volkswagen Golf, its platform sibling, sales-wise, the Seat Leon has been the more powerful race car in various series around the world. The TCR is one of them, having been set up after Seat designed the Leon Cup Racer, also the car that was used as a template for aerodynamic regulations. The increasingly popular series is still dominated by the Leon, which received an update in 2017.

Renamed the Leon Cupra Evo 17, the Spanish race car is more aggressive than ever. The hatchback sports bigger wheel arches, just like the Volkswagen Golf GTI TRC, a massive rear wing, and the copper highlights we’ve seen on recently unveiled Cupra road models. The Leon will continue to race in the TCR International Series, where it will face competition from Audi, Ford, Honda, Hyundai, Opel, Volkswagen, and many more carmakers.

Seat is preparing to launch its third SUV that will go by the name Tarraco and will be the company’s largest SUV yet. Spotted testing on the Nurburgring track in June 2018, the Tarraco shares underpinnings and other components with the midsize Skoda Kodiaq. This means that the Tarraco uses the Volkswagen Group’s ubiquitous MQB platform, which also underpins the Volkswagen Tiguan and Touareg. Much like the Kodiaq, the Tarraco will go against popular SUVs like the Kia Sorento, Hyundai Santa Fe, and even the Volkswagen Tiguan. In case you’re wondering what’s in the Tarraco name, it’s the ancient name of the Spanish city of Tarragona.

PostHeaderIcon CUPRA e-Racer Pops its Tarmac Cherry

Ever since it was unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show earlier this year, SEAT’s CUPRA e-Racer has been teasing us with how awesome it is to look and how superb it is to drive. But we hadn’t actually seen the thing in action, until now. The e-Racer made it track debut recently in Zagreb (Croatia).

To be honest, it wasn’t a full track outing for the CUPRA e-Racer. The purpose of this test was to test the integration of the electric battery pack with the rest of the vehicle, meaning SEAT engineers wanted to make sure whether it worked at all or not. It did, we’re glad to report, and “tests yielded very positive conclusions” as well.

Not that it was particularly surprising. Each individual component was tested and evaluated, and since the whole construction of machines like this is kind of modular, if every building block does what it’s supposed to, then the whole should work flawlessly. The tests showed the the electrical, battery, cooling and propulsion systems have no issues working together and with the mechanical parts of the CUPRA e-Racer.

The e-Racer features a battery pack consisting of 6,072 round cell batteries, which is equivalent 9,000 mobile phone batteries. This car is built for E TCR series, the first ever electric, multi-brand touring car championship. And although in theory the electric motor fitted to it can be immensely powerful – in excess of 600 horsepower – it’ll probably be capped by regulation in the final competition version.

PostHeaderIcon SEAT Apprentice School Students Build a Dope Electric Kart

Well, looks like karting is the next field of motorsport to go electric, at least if the students from the SEAT Apprentice School have their way. These youngsters have built a fully functioning electric kart and it has already seen competitive action where it finished a very respectable second place. 

The team entered their electric kart in the Kart Academy at the Barcelona-Catalunya circuit in Montmeló and performed extremely well for a prototype, beating almost all of the petrol-powered competition. This is a feather in cap not just for the students, but also for their professors and SEAT Apprentice School in general. They have recognized the genius of these kids and provided them with testing facilities prior to the Barcelona race.

The student-built electric kart features a 5.5 kW engine and is equipped with a 48V battery. Apart from the electric power, the 1.74 metres long and 1.36 metres wide go kart performs like a regular kart, having gone through braking, accelerating, endurance and slalom trails with flying colors. The students also scooped the ‘Industry’ award for mid-degree students presented by FP Emprèn, an organisation which rewards vocational training schools in and around Barcelona.

According to Laura Carnicero, the head of training at SEAT and director of the Apprentice School “the success of this electric kart project shows that the School teaches the necessary technological skills for the automotive industry of the future, enabling the students to become entrepreneurial, competitive professionals.”

In case you’re a bit of a shut-in, I’m happy to report that yes, spring has most definitely sprung in a major way, prompting some of those more outdoorsy types out there to break out the ‘ole two-wheeled contraptions known as bicycles. And while bike enthusiasts and car enthusiasts are occasionally at odds with one another, Cupra is offering up a reason for them to come together.

PostHeaderIcon Seat Is Going To Have Its Hands Full Over The Next Few Years With New EVs and The Fourth-Gen Leon On The Table

Everybody’s getting in on electrification these days, and you can add Seat to the growing list of automakers that are making a push for the burgeoning segment. The Volkswagen-owned Spanish automaker is planning to release a plug-in hybrid version of the next-generation Leon as the company begins its push for more all-electric cars in the future. The new Leon isn’t going to be Seat’s first all-electric car, but the model that’s going to come after it will be. The yet-to-be-named model is expected to arrive in 2019 where it will be developed alongside Volkswagen’s ID hatchback.

PostHeaderIcon CUPRA e-Racer to Launch E TCR Racing Series

Building the CUPRA e-Racer electric race car was an unprecedented move by Spanish car maker SEAT. Naturally, they want to milk the thing for all it’s worth, beginning with a new electric racing series called the E TCR, which is a touring car championship for electric machines. 

It would be ideal for SEAT to enter the CUPRA e-Racer in the regular TCR championship to show how much better the electric powertrain in this car is compared with the petrol units in the “old-fashioned” race cars. But that wouldn’t be fair to the other cars, since the e-Racer makes around 680 horsepower, which is nearly double what a petrol-powered touring car makes. So they are considering guest appearances for the e-Racer in in some of the TCR events during the 2018 season in order to make some hype for the E TCR series which kicks off in 2019.

CUPRA e-Racer is a pretty remarkable machine. It weighs 400 kg more than the regular CUPRA TCR, but bests its performance with 0 to 100 km/h acceleration in 3.2 seconds and 0 to 200 km/h in 8.2 seconds.

SEAT Vice-president for R&D, Dr. Matthias Rabe, said that “we are committed to the E TCR because we are convinced that the future of competition is in electric engines. Just as the SEAT Leon Cup Racer laid the technical foundations of the TCR championship, once again we are blazing trails in this new experience.” For this reason, Dr. Rabe encourages “the rest of the car manufacturers to join us in this amazing adventure.”

PostHeaderIcon CUPRA e-Racer

SEAT’s now standalone CUPRA performance brand is making its debut appearance at the Geneva Motor Show, and it’s making history in the process. The world’s first fully electric racing touring car in the world is wearing a CUPRA badge, and it’s called the CUPRA e-Racer. Largely based on the SEAT Leon TCR touring car, the CUPRA e-Racer not only looks like a serious race car, it also has as much as 670 horsepower at its disposal.

CUPRA e-Racer Exterior


2018 CUPRA e-Racer - image 771710
“All the components that were included in the creation of this race car serve one purpose: performance”

The CUPRA e-Racer looks like it’s ready to do some serious racing. While it retains some of the Leon TCR’s aesthetic language, the e-Racer is its own race car. It has a longer hood that slides down to the nose. The dynamic headlamp architecture is there, though it’s plainly obvious that the front section’s most significant features are the bumper, fenders, intakes, and splitter, all of which appear to have been injected with the good stuff. The car sits so close to the ground it’s easy to wonder how much clearance it really has. All the components that were included in the creation of this race car serve one purpose: performance. The arches are wide and massive, the carbon fiber elements are all present, and that massive rear wing puts everything together.

There’s no question that the ground-hugging CUPRA e-Racer is all about. You only need to look at it to know that it’s a menacing full-fledged racer.

CUPRA e-Racer Interior


2018 CUPRA e-Racer - image 771713

There are no shots of the interior, but we can imagine that, given its purpose, the CUPRA e-Racer has a race-spec cabin as well. That means that most of the creature comforts from the production model have been taken out in order to make the car lighter. Race seats, a sports steering wheel, and a roll bar at the back are also a given. In fact, you can see the roll bars already from the press photos we already have.

Beyond these usual inclusions, the interior of the CUPRA e-Racer remains a little bit of a mystery.

CUPRA e-Racer Performance


2018 CUPRA e-Racer - image 771707
“That explains why it has four electric motors that can combine to produce a continuous output of 402 horsepower and a peak output approaching 670 horsepower”

What’s not a mystery is the race car’s power and performance capabilities. The CUPRA e-Racer is born to race. That explains why it has four electric motors that can combine to produce a continuous output of 402 horsepower and a peak output approaching 670 horsepower. As incredible as that is, the CUPRA e-Racer can get to that power number with a single gear with Torque vectoring and rear-wheel traction. The rear-wheel-drive setup of the car is one of the few differences it has compared to the standard Leon TCR, which has a front-wheel-drive setup. It’s also 660 pounds heavier, but it does make up for it with a 65-kWh battery pack that can recover energy under braking. All told, the CUPRA e-Racer is capable of covering 0 to 60 mph in 3.2 seconds and 0 to 124 mph in 8.2 seconds. Its top speed sits at 168 mph.

Conclusion


2018 CUPRA e-Racer - image 771709

I wish CUPRA has more details about the e-Racer, but based on what it’s already revealed, the all-electric race car has the promise to turn some heads. All it needs to do from here is to show that it has the performance capabilities to back up its surprisingly good looks.

  • Leave it
    • * Nothing luxurious about it
    • * When will see it race?
    • * Can’t use it in the streets

PostHeaderIcon Geneva 2018: SEAT to Go Electric Racing with CUPRA e-Racer

A few weeks ago SEAT kind of shocked the whole automotive community when they announced a performance-sub-brand, CUPRA. Now they are doubling down by announcing a new racing venture with an electric car. The CUPRA e-Racer is the Spanish automaker’s ticket to the future, and not just in motorsport. 

CUPRA e-Racer is deigned based on a petrol-powered Cup Racer. But the electric powertrain it features could be used in future production models with powerful effects. The e-Racer is a serious machine, packing 300 kW of continuous power and up to 500 kW (680 PS) at its peak. That means SEAT could make a road-going EV with around 400 PS, like, tomorrow!

They are not going to do that, but it must feel good for them to know that they could. CUPRA e-Racer also benefits from advanced technologies that will eventually make their way to regular production models, such as one single gear with Torque vectoring and with rear wheel traction, new rear vision cameras instead of mirrors, and lightweight materials. Performance-wise, the e-Racer is potentially capable of accelerating from 0 to 100 km/h in only 3.2 secs, and 0 to 200 km/h in only 8.2 secs, on to a top speed of  270 km/h.

CUPRA e-Racer will make its debut at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show along with the other new member of the CUPRA family, the Ateca. The high-performance SUV boasts a 2.0 TSI engine with 300 PS (221 kW), sport-tuned 7-speed DSG gearbox, 4Drive traction system, and adaptive suspension (Dynamic Chassis Control).

PostHeaderIcon The 2020 Seat Leon Will Get Volkswagen Group’s Newest “industry leading” tech

The fourth-generation Seat Leon is getting first dibs on a state-of-the-art infotainment system that’s being developed by the Volkswagen Group. The new infotainment system is reportedly being developed with an eye towards improving its functionality to include certain abilities like updating maps, apps, and other features over-the-air. Once the system is used on the new Leon, it’s expected to filter down across the entire Volkswagen Group range.

“A new infotainment system may not be as important as a car’s wheels and engines, but in today’s world of increased connectivity, it might as well be”

A new infotainment system may not be as important as a car’s wheels and engines, but in today’s world of increased connectivity, it might as well be. It says a lot about the importance of this new system when Seat CEO Luca De Meo admits to Autocar that the company has spent the last two years developing it. In addition to its ability to do over-the-air updates, the new infotainment system will be versatile enough to accommodate a variety of car functions, including air-conditioning and heating. “It will have fewer buttons, more voice control and be much more coherent than (the system) today, Matthias Rabe, Seat research and development boss, said.

Once the new infotainment display hits the market with the fourth-generation Leon, it could end up drawing comparisons to the infotainment system Tesla uses with its own lineup of models. The California-based electric car maker has been at the forefront of infotainment technology, having evolved the system to a point that its models, including the upcoming Model 3, depends almost entirely on its touchscreen, turning it into the brains of the operation with frequent over-the-air updates coming from Tesla itself.

A similar system from the Volkswagen Group would be beneficial for all the brands under the German conglomerate. This includes Seat, which has worked hard to reinvent its image to cater to younger markets. It’s no secret that this is one of the reasons why the new technology is going to debut in the fourth-generation Leon.

In addition to the new infotainment system, the fourth-generation Leon will also receive a number of body styles, including a five-door hatchback that Rabe hinted will “not be a typical hatch.” It will use Volkswagen’s MQB platform, the same platform that models like the Audi A3 and current-generation versions of the Volkswagen Golf, Passat, Polo, and Tiguan, among others. The hatchback will eventually be joined by a wagon version and a crossover that will sit between the hatchback and the Ateca SUV, another Seat model that uses the same MQB underpinnings.

PostHeaderIcon Cupra Could See Electric Drivetrain Tech Before SEAT

The newly minted standalone brand Cupra is shaping up to be much more than just a go-to for performance thrills. According to a recent report from Autocar, SEAT brass have divulged that Cupra could also act as the development workhorse for a number of new technologies, including electric drivetrain tech.

Continue reading for the full story.

The Full Story


Cupra Could See Electric Drivetrain Tech Before SEAT - image 770198
“SEAT research and development head, Matthias Rabe, promised more electrification, including battery electric vehicles.”

Cupra, the once-upon-a-time performance division for Spanish automaker SEAT, detached itself from the mothership earlier this month to become its own standalone brand. Now it’s looking like Cupra will act as the technological pioneer as well, developing electric vehicle technology that will eventually trickle down to the rest of SEAT’s lineup as the automaker leverages the premium pricing attached to the Cupra models.

“We’re in a phase where we will have to integrate a lot of technologies into the product because they are available, from engine technology to connectivity, driver assistance systems, everything,” said SEAT head honcho Luca de Meo, according to a recent report from Autocar. “When you do it in a car supposed to be sold at, say, £11,000, it’s something, but to do it in a car two to three times the price you have some space to integrate that technology. We will use Cupra as a gate to bring technology that will cascade to the rest of the SEAT range.”

SEAT research and development head Matthias Rabe was more specific, saying that “there will be more electrification in Cupra, and we’re thinking about battery electric vehicles. We’re also looking at the digital world, both inside the car and how it connects outside it.”

Financially, it makes sense, but from a marketing perspective, the new role could raise a few issues. For example, would Cupra, a brand that’s best known for its hardcore performance machines, be the right fit for electric vehicles and upgraded connectivity tech, both of which aren’t part of the traditional stripped-down go-faster formula?


Cupra Could See Electric Drivetrain Tech Before SEAT - image 770233
“Rabe said that hybrids and plug-in hybrids will likely be part of the Cupra lineup. Customers could see the Cupra version of certain upcoming vehicles first.”

According to Rabe, newfound battery power would actually make for a pretty good fit. “We will continue with the internal combustion engine, but we have ideas of how to get more power as well,” he said. “We’re looking at the idea of electrification in a sporty way, not in a limited way like with a PHEV today.”

Rabe also added that hybrids and plug-in hybrids will likely be part of the Cupra lineup in the near future. What’s more, customers could very well see the Cupra version of certain upcoming vehicles prior to the SEAT version, which would be a bit of a role reversal between the two brands.

Either way, look for new hybrid and all-electrics heading down the line soon, as Cupra has plans to offer seven individual models by 2020. Cupra’s only confirmed production model thus far is the Ateca SUV, but it’s possible we’ll see a new hot hatch Ibiza as well. Both models are slated to appear at the 2018 Geneva International Motor Show next month with gas power only.

PostHeaderIcon Cupra Ibiza

The Ibiza nameplate has been around since 1984, when Spanish automaker SEAT introduced it as a replacement for the outgoing Fura. Framed as an affordable and fun B-segment supermini, the Ibiza has seen five generations over the years, the most recent of which dropped in 2017 at the Geneva International Motor Show. A variety of body styles have been used as well, including a five-door hatchback, a sedan, a coupe, and a wagon, but the most interesting of the lot is the hot-to-trot Cupra model. These high-performance iterations (“Cupra” is an amalgamation of “cup” and “racing”) are aimed squarely at the enthusiast market, bringing more power, aggressive styling, stiff suspension, big brakes, and an interior-spec upgrade to match. These days, Cupra fancies itself a standalone brand, much in the same way Polestar detached itself from Volvo. And while the first effort for the sub-brand-turned-automaker is the 300-horsepower Ateca SUV, you can bet a freshly Cupra-tized Ibiza is on the way too. That much was revealed in a slew of images posted to social media prior to an expected debut at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show. In response to the leak, Cupra dropped a selection of official pics, given us a clearer view of the pumped-up five-door.

While Cupra is saying the Ibiza isn’t considered an official part of the range just yet (this latest model is
designated as no more than a design exercise), we think it’s highly likely the hot hatch is production-ready. The brand will show the new Ateca in Geneva, which is all well and good, but in all honesty, the Ibiza is the the one we really want. Read on to find out why.

Continue reading to learn more about the 2018 Cupra Ibiza.

Cupra Ibiza Exterior

  • Copper-colored details
  • New badge
  • Geometric patters
  • Carbon fiber aero bits
  • 18-inch wheels
  • Triangular headlight and taillight graphics

2018 Cupra Ibiza - image 770180
“The Ibiza stands out thanks to its sporty body kit, which is replete with sharp angles and copious bulging muscle lines. The copper-colored details also look great.”

From the off, you’re likely to notice the Ibiza’s new Cupra badge, which, in our opinion looks a bit like the Decepticon logo from the Transformers franchise. That’s meant as a complement, by the way. The badge is finished in a rich bronze color, which is the same hue first seen on the Leon Cupra R, and it’s continued elsewhere on the car to help individualize the Cupra brand.

Also helping the Ibiza stand out is its sporty body kit, which is replete with sharp angles and copious bulging muscle lines. In front, we find an updated front bumper, which is framed by triangular headlights and C-shaped fog light housings. Further triangular shapes are seen in the intakes, with both the upper and lower sections getting their own unique geometric inserts, plus a bronze surround on certain models, as seen in the leaked images. The hood gets a number of extra sinews as well. There are also the requisite carbon fiber aero elements, including a composite front lip spoiler that juts out far from the body in defiance of all those speed bumps and steeply angled driveways out in the wild.

Moving around to the side of the car, the Cupra Ibiza gets a forward-leaning profile, enhanced thanks to a raked window line that pushes the proportions rearwards. The window line is heavily slanted, and is complemented by lower character lines that enhance the hatchback’s natural wedge-like shape. Dark finishes are used for the surrounds and the side-view mirrors, while the leaked images show that some of the models will get the mirror caps in bronze. Further bronze touches are found in the corners, where the 2018 Cupra Ibiza receives large alloy wheels measured at 18 inches in diameter and come complete with copper accents on the spokes. Carbon fiber embellishments were added to the side skirts as well.

Further composites are used with the carbon fiber spoiler, which we find perched out back on the roof’s trailing edge. There’s also a carbon fiber diffuser below that houses a pair of polished exhaust pipes tucked off to one side. Finally, there are angular taillights with triangular graphics that match the daytime running lights seen in front.

Cupra Ibiza Interior

  • Loads of carbon fiber tirm
  • Alcantara upholstery for the steering wheel
  • Digital instrumentation measures at 10 inches
  • Cupra logo embroidered into the sport seats

2018 Cupra Ibiza - image 770182
“The first thing you'll notice about the interior of the 2018 Cupra Ibiza is that it gets a lot of carbon fiber trim. The material is usually a go-to in the world of enthusiast-focused models, and its inclusion isn't all that surprising here.”

The first thing you’ll notice about the interior of the 2018 Cupra Ibiza is that it gets a lot of carbon fiber trim. The material is usually a go-to in the world of enthusiast-focused models, and its inclusion isn’t all that surprising here. The material is used everywhere, covering the dash, the center section of the steering wheel, and even the side bolsters in the seats.

We see lots of that copper coloring from the exterior inside the cabin as well, including in the stitching for the upholstery, the shifter surround, the door panels, and more. Alcantara covers the rim of the steering wheel and the hand brake lever to finish.

The steering wheel gets a flat-bottom design and multi-function controls at thumb’s length for the infotainment system and various convenience features. The front seats get a buckety, sporty kinda feel, as well as stitching along the lower section that shows off that new Cupra logo. A quartet of square air vents are seen along the dash. Further angular designs are added along the doors for the grab handle and door lever, once again matching the theme started on the exterior. Polished pedals are in the foot wells.

The center console uses the middle section for HVAC purposes, above which sits a big infotainment touchscreen with a familiar smartphone-esque tile-style layout. Behind the wheel is a digital instrument cluster measuring in at an impressive 10 inches. No word on exact infotainment features yet, but we’re guessing the usual smartphone support, Bluetooth, voice control, and the like.

Cupra Ibiza Drivetrain

  • Powertrain from the VW Polo GTI
  • 197 horsepower, 236 pound-feet of torque
  • DSG six-speed automatic
  • Six-speed manual also quite likely
  • 0 to 62 mph in 6.7 seconds
  • Top speed of 147 mph
  • Michelin performance tires
  • Drilled brake rotors in front

2018 Cupra Ibiza - image 769782
“Properly motivated, this set-up will propel the Cupra Ibiza to 62 mph in approximately 6.7 seconds, with a top speed of 147 mph – both of which are figures that match the VW Polo GTI.”

While we have yet to get the full rundown on what’s happening under the hood of the 2018 Cupra Ibiza, it’s more than likely the hatchback will use the same oily bits as its Volkswagen Auto Group sibling, the Polo GTI. That means we’re expecting the same turbo 2.0-liter four-cylinder, which produces upwards of 197 horsepower at 4,400 rpm and 236 pound-feet at 1,500 rpm.

Sending all that muscle to the front axle will be DSG six-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, as confirmed by the shifter seen in the interior shots featured above. While the automatic is an obvious choice, it’s also possible the Cupra Ibiza will offer a manual version, most likely some time after the initial model makes its debut.

Properly motivated, this set-up will propel the Cupra Ibiza to 62 mph in approximately 6.7 seconds, with a top speed of 147 mph – both of which are figures that match the VW Polo GTI.

To compliment the stout engine package, the Ibiza will also come with a solid performance suspension setup that’s tuned for cornering rather than comfort. And that’s a very good thing. Given the fact the Ibiza shares the same platform as the Volkswagen Polo GTI, we can look to that model for expectations here – for example, it’ll get a lowered ride height and a rather firm ride. In the corners, it also looks like there are Michelin performance tires wrapping the alloy wheels, plus drilled performance brakes complete with “Cupra” branded calipers in front.

Cupra Ibiza Prices


2018 Cupra Ibiza - image 770234

Exact pricing for the 2018 Cupra Ibiza is still on the way, but we expect it to slot in at roughly the same spot as the current model. And while we won’t get it here in the U.S., buyers in the U.K. should expect to pony up around £18,500 to get into one of these. Optional equipment (for example, a performance package) will add a few grand to the bottom line.

Cupra Ibiza Competition

Ford Fiesta ST


2018 Ford Fiesta ST - image 706946

Ford’s answer to the fun little hatchback formula is the Fiesta, which is offered in a wide variety of configurations and trim levels to suit the buyer’s needs, but the one you wanna get is the go-faster ST model. Carrying a price tag under the £20,000 mark, this Blue Oval challenges the Ibiza thanks to a turbocharged 1.5-liter three-cylinder engine making a Cupra-matching 197 horsepower. It’ll also do the 0-to-62 mph shimmy in 6.7 seconds, which is exactly what we’re predicting for the Ibiza. A new Liquid Blue paint option and 18-inch alloy wheels help it look sporty, while an 8.0-inch touchscreen and flat-bottom steering wheel round out the interior spec.

Volkswagen Polo GTI


2018 Volkswagen Polo GTI - image 731370

If you prefer your hot hatch with an extra dash of German refinement, the Polo GTI is right there in the running. It’s essentially the same car as the Cupra Ibiza, albeit with new badges and interior equipment. The engine and platform and transmission, however, are all likely to match the Spanish five-door. Making the difference is the sleek, more involved styling seen outside, while the interior gets different trim bits. Pricing is the same as well, starting at just under the £20,000 mark. Going for this one over the Ibiza is more or less an aesthetics choice, although we wouldn’t be surprised if the suspension tuning was a little different between the two.

Conclusion


2018 Cupra Ibiza - image 770181

There’s a lot to like about the Cupra Ibiza. It’s sporty, it’s fun, and with five doors and a big hatch, it’s surprisingly practical for such a small vehicle. We’re also digging the unique touches Cupra added to help it standout as a non-SEAT vehicle, especially the copper-colored bits.

Of course, we have to ask – is it too similar to the VW Polo GTI? While we’re still waiting on confirmation of details for the Ibiza’s engine and drivetrain, it certainly looks quite similar, and accusations of badge engineering on Volkswagen’s part aren’t totally unfounded.

Stay tuned, as we’ll post details when they drop in Geneva.

PostHeaderIcon Cupra Ateca

Fresh from the bowels of the SEAT – Cupra split comes the Cupra Ateca, a rebadged model with the typical tuner enhancements. Highlights include a considerable horsepower increase, mild revisions to the exterior, plenty of Alcantara inside, and a swath of standard features suited for what would have been the range-topping model of the SEAT Ateca range. Of Course, there’s a lot of ground for the Cupra Ateca to cover when you consider the sheer size of the compact SUV Market. Sure, there aren’t a lot of performance compacts out there, but the Cupra Ateca will be fighting for dominance against vehicles like the Porsche Macan, BMW X3, and Jaguar F-Pace, all heavy hitters that could make things for the new kid on the block a little more difficult. So, let’s see what the new Ateca brings to the table and just how well it stacks up against the competition.

2019 Cupra Ateca Exterior


2019 Cupra Ateca - image 770168
“The Cupra Ateca is clearly a rebadged model, but Cupra has managed to walk a fine line between doing too much and too little with its first model.”

The Cupra Ateca is clearly a rebadged model, but Cupra has managed to walk a fine line between doing too much and too little with its first model. To put it simply, exterior enhancements are found in all the right spots. Compared to the model it is based on, you’ll recognize that nose, and the Cupra even features the same grille mesh, but that mesh is carried over in the corner intakes. Those, of course, look a little larger not because of the redesign but because the Cupra Ateca lacks the fog lamps found on the SEAT models. The low lip has also been revised, featuring a sportier air dam with secondary air intakes in the corners. The side profile doesn’t change at all, but you should take note of those exclusive 19-inch diamond cut alloy wheels. Around back, most of the usual SEAT DNA remains, but there is an all-new diffuser to offer up a fresh look along with those rather strange openings between the rear deflectors. By the way, the Cupra Ateca also gets twin, dual exhaust outlets – a hint at the extra power made possible by the engine stashed under the hood, but we’ll talk more about that later.

2019 Cupra Ateca Interior


2019 Cupra Ateca - image 770172
“The seats and door panels get healthy doses of Alcantara, while the steering wheel is wrapped in perforated leather.”

You wouldn’t be judged if you looked at the inside and said: “that’s just a SEAT Ateca.” In fact, we did the same, but when you actually look, there’s a lot of fresh going on here. For instance, the seats and door panels get healthy doses of Alcantara, while the steering wheel is wrapped in perforated leather. The seats, trim panels, gear shifter, and steering wheel are all held together by grey contrast stitching to add a little extra pizzazz to the interior. Of course, you’ll find Cupra branding here and there, including on the steering wheel, floor mats, and infotainment display. The door sills even get an illuminated Cupra logo to remind those who enter just what they are getting into.

The eight-inch infotainment screen carries over from the SEAT Ateca, but it gets custom software that includes a Cupra logo upon entering the vehicle, and there’s a performance page as well. The instrument cluster is all digital, featuring a central tachometer and digital speedometer. All other relevant data shows up on either side of the display. Things like keyless entry and keyless start round out the interior package.

2019 Cupra Ateca Performance


2019 Cupra Ateca - image 770186
“According to Cupra, it can hit the 62-mph sprint in all of 5.4 seconds and will top out at 152 mph if you keep on it.”

Under the hood of the Cupra Ateca lurks the EA888 2.0-liter mill straight from the Volkswagen Group. This powertrain is a turbocharged unit that delivers 296 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque, a hair more than the torque delivered by the SEAT Leon Cupra 300. Power is delivered to all four wheels via a refined, seven-speed DSG gearbox a SEAT’s 4Drive system. This system, provides a number of selectable drive modes, with the most important being “CUPRA” mode, which, of course, opens up engine response and revises the adaptive suspension for sportier handling. Unfortunately, there are no plan for the Ateca to receive a manual transmission, and the 4Drive system is biased to the front with torque being sent to the rear only when needed. According to Cupra, it can hit the 62-mph sprint in all of 5.4 seconds and will top out at 152 mph if you keep on it.

The adaptive suspension is top notch and is actually a bit lower than that found on the SEAT model, but not by much – just 20 mm. The spring rates, however, have been considerably revised and the suspension is firmer overall. The adaptive suspension is standard equipment, while the electronic sound synthesizer that’s typically offered on MQB-based models has been dropped. The standard brake setup comes with 17-inches on all corners, but if you go for the performance pack option, you can get Brembo calipers and 18-inch discs for extra stopping power.

2019 Cupra Ateca Prices


2019 Cupra Ateca - image 770169

There is no word on pricing for the Cupra Ateca, but you can expect it to start out around the $50,000 to $55,000 range. This would put it somewhere around $8,000 higher than the range-topping SEAT Xcellence, a fair price when you consider the 90+ horsepower upgrade and extra niceties inside.

2019 Cupra Ateca Competition

As luck would have it, there isn’t really a lot the Cupra Ateca will compete directly with, so we really have to look in slightly unconventional places. With its level of performance and the goodies it sports inside, it can easily compete with models like the Porsche Macan, BMW X3, and Jaguar F-Pace, at least on one front or another.

With things like an Alcantara-trimmed interior, backlit logos, and the digital instrument cluster, there’s no denying that the Ateca has what it takes to compete inside. And, it’s not exactly an ugly duckling on the outside either. We don’t have specific interior and exterior specs, so we need to focus on price point and performance for an accurate comparison. With that said, we’ll start out with the Jaguar F-Pace.

Cupra Ateca vs Jaguar F-Pace


2017 Jaguar F-Pace - image 645923

In base form, the F-Pace doesn’t stand a chance against the Ateca. From Base to R-Sport trim, the F-pace delivers just 247 ponies from its 2.0-liter four-banger. The R-Sport is the best looker, so it’s the one that would go against the Ateca. With subpar horsepower and a $54,175 price point, the F-Pace R-Sport doesn’t really tickle our ribs as the one to go with. If you really want to compete, you have to go with the more luxurious and more powerful Portfolio trim. Coming in at a stout $62,000 – at least $4,000 more than the Ateca base price – you will get the same amount of horsepower, 296 ponies, and 295 pound-feet of torque. Not a bad choice but slightly more expensive. And, in a race, it’s going to lose as it takes the F-Pace Portfolio 5.7 seconds to get to 60 mph and it tops out at 145 mph. In this case, the Cupra Ateca may be the way to go – plus, you get in on an all-new model, so there’s that.

Read our full review on the 2017 Jaguar F-Pace.

Cupra Ateca vs Porsche Macan


2015 - 2017 Porsche Macan - image 533189

While the base model Macan really isn’t available here in the states, there is a lesser model available in other markets, and it’s right on par when you look at luxury. Outside of that, you might find yourself swaying more and more toward the Cupra. For instance, the Porsche Macan, in base form, comes in at $64,118 (based on exchange rates against £45,915 at the time of this writing) and only delivers an inferior 252 horsepower. That’s enough for a 6.7-second sprint to 62.1 mph and a top speed of just 142 mph. Of course, going with the Cupra will leave you on the sidelines when it comes to awesome Porsche design. If you’re a loyal Porsche customer, you couldn’t be blamed for sticking to your brand, but you should give the Cupra a test drive to see what you think.

Read our full review on the 2017 Porsche Macan.

Cupra Ateca vs BMW X3


2018 BMW X3 - image 721390

The BMW X3 is the only model of the three discussed here that really makes sense in terms of favoritism. It’s available in the states in just two forms – one with 248 horsepower and one with 355 ponies. The base model, the xDrive30i, doesn’t offer as much power but it also comes in at just $42,650 – a significantly lower price. It may not have matching Alcantara inside or all of those M-specific goodies, but it’s still a better deal than the Cupra if you don’t need anything extra nice or more power. You could, of course, go for the X3 M40i, which will net you a twin-turbo inline-six that’s good for 355 horsepower. It has a price tag of $54,000 – a figure that’s right in the range the Cupra Ateca should fall in. By the way, that M40i will get you to 60 mph in 4.6 seconds on the way to a top speed of 155 mph. All told, unless you really want a rebadged SEAT with a Cupra badge and loads of Alcantara, you may want to go with that X3 M40i, but we’ll let you do the test drives and figure it out for yourself.

Conlcusion


2019 Cupra Ateca - image 770171

While we normally don’t go for all of the rebadged, performance brand makeovers, this one actually seems to hit all the right keys. It’s got the luxury features to put it ahead of its class, it’s got enough power to stand up to the big boys, and it’s got the looks too. With the price point still unknown, however, it’s really hard to place a definite answer on how well it will really be taken on the market – after all, if Cupra positions it too high, it will be quite easy to turn eyes to another big brand with as much power and a lower price. For now, we’ll just have to wait and see but, so far, things are looking good for the new Cupra brand.

PostHeaderIcon CUPRA Ateca Is SEAT’s Sub-Brand’s First Product

As you may know from our previous articles on the subject, SEAT recently made their high-performance CUPRA models into a separate brand. The first outcome of this move, which is supposed to give these models a cooler image and enhance their appeal, is the CUPRA Ateca SUV. 

Of course you may not notice the identity of this car looking at the badge, because it sports CUPRA’s unique emblem. CUPRA Ateca also boasts a really cool body kit with front spoiler, custom bumpers, rear diffuser, side skirts and rear wing, plus large wheels and sport tires. There is even an optional performance pack with 18” Brembo performance brakes in black, carbon aero kit and carbon interior trim. The SUV looks very dynamic and sporty, so it’s a good job it also has a decently powerful engine to cash the checks its appearance writes.

You have to realize though, CUPRA Ateca is still an affordable performance car, so you can’t expect a V6 under the bonnet. What it has is a 2.0 liter turbo petrol engine with 300 PS, which gives the car a 0 to 100 km/h time of 5.4 seconds and a top speed of 245 km/h. The Ateca is a naturally capable SUV though, and in this trim is get 7-speed DSG gearbox, and  4Drive traction system for various driving modes. CUPRA Ateca is also very well-equipped, with standard kit including keyless entry and start system, wireless charger, GSM signal booster, 360º top view camera, 8” touchscreen navigation system plus, dynamic chassis control -adaptive suspension-, digital cockpit, and park assist.






 “CUPRA Ateca offers versatility like no other brand. It’s about a unique model in its segment, with 300 PS, 4Drive and a new 7-speed DSG gearbox. It is the best example of balance between sportsmanship, fun at the wheel and ease of use in everyday life.” said SEAT Executive Vice-President for Research and Development, Dr Matthias Rabe.
