SEAT UK has launched a special edition Leon – the SEAT Leon FR+ Supercopa - with a new sporty look and extra features.
Last year we got the SEAT Leon FR+ bolted on to the Leon range in the UK as a top of the range Leon aimed at extracting a bit more from Leon customers, 25 per cent of whom were already opting for the previous range topper, the Leon FR.
That plan obviously worked as SEAT has now added yet another model above the FR+ in the guise of the FR+ Supercopa which offer a special edition styling kit for a sportier look.
The Supercopa name comes from SEAT’s one-make race series and offers new bumpers front and back, side skirts, a bigger spoiler at the back, chrome-tipped exhausts and a set of 18″ BBS alloys. Colour options include Nevada White, Emocion Red and Speed Blue.
Just like the regular FR+ the Supercopa can be had with either the 168bhp 2.0 litre turbo diesel or the 208bhp 2.0 litre TSI petrol, and as it’s based on the FR+ it also gets the same extra goodies like SEAT’s Media System, Bluetooth, Bi-xenons, adaptive lights and parking sensors.
SEAT are keen for you to know that despite £3k of body kit on the Supercopa it will cost just £750 more than the standard FR+. That means £22,530 for the 2.0- litre TDI and £22,690 for the 2.0 litre TSI (with an extra £1k+ if you want the DSG ‘box).
