Seat Leon Cupra prices cut by nearly £2,000

And thanks to PCP, you can own one for £349 a month

2018 Seat Leon Cupra 300Seat has cut up to £1,945 from the list price of its Leon Cupra range, taking the entry-level SC three-door and five-door models below £30,000 – for both manual and DSG automatics.

The reductions comprise £555 off the manual cars, and a heftier £1,905 off the DSG autos. It means manual and automatic Leon Cupras now cost exactly the same: an auto is effectively a no-cost option.

Seat Leon Cupra: 2018 prices

  • Seat Leon SC Cupra 300 manual: £29,600
  • Seat Leon SC Cupra 300 DSG auto: £29,600
  • Seat Leon Cupra 300 5dr manual: £29,900
  • Seat Leon Cupra 300 5dr DSG: £29,900
  • Seat Leon ST Cupra 300 manual: £30,895
  • Seat Leon ST Cupra 300 4Drive DSG: £32,580

There’s been no cut in standard equipment despite the lower prices, either. Indeed, Seat’s now added as standard its Digital Cockpit electronic instrument binnacle as standard, along with 19-inch alloys, Dynamic Chassis Control, and both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity.

Of course, even sub-£30k prices are too much for most of us to stump up outright. So Seat’s pulled together a PCP finance package that offers a five-door Leon Cupra DGS, with metallic paint, for £349 a month.

It requires a £5,099 customer deposit, but the dealer adds £1,500 to this, and the £349 a month finance plan is spread over four years at 5.8 percent APR. the final payment is £11,538 and the total amount payable is £33,050 (compared to the list price of £30,480).

Oh, and if you’ve already ordered a Leon Cupra at the higher prices, don’t worry. So long as it’s not already been registered, Seat will update your order to the better-equipped and cheaper cars. Effectively giving you cashback without lifting a finger!
