I recently traded in my 53-plate 1.8V T Cupra for a 55-plate Honda Civic 1.6 sport and I have to say I have mixed feelings.. On the plus side I no longer need to fork out £270 per year for road tax (Civic sport is only £170), plus it would seem that a tank of fuel is now likely to last me almost twice as long as it would've done with the Cupra. Looks-wise they are both good looking cars, even if the Civic is a bit more boy-racer than the understated Cupra.. My Cupra was 10 years old when I… Read Full Review

I've had my Cupra for just over two years. It had 3 previous owners with a full service history. I was attracted to the Leon because it looked better and was less common than the Golfs I'ld been looking at. It was also much better value. The Cupra is a bargain when it comes to performance. It's quicker and cheaper than a Golf GTi which only has 150 bhp. Even though it shares most of the Golf's running gear, it's a sharper drive. The engine is one of VW's best. Smooth, powerful with and a… Read Full Review

I bought my Seat Leon Cupra 180 03 plate, so the face lift version in nov 2006. The car had 35k on the clock and was completley standard. The car itself is sound with no major mechanical faults. After three months i was bored and wanted more power (wishing i'd bought the cupra r) so i took it to jkm and had revo stage one remap(which took the bhp to around 200-205 with 230ish lb/ft. I had an induction kit, short shifter and upper strut brace fiitted (i guess i just got carried away on the seat… Read Full Review

Have owned this car for just over a month. Wanted something a bit more sporty, yet still practical after coming from a Toyota Corolla diesel. The Cupra looks good value compared to the equivalent Golf/A3 alternatives which use the same engine, but mostly have 150bhp with five gears instead of 180 in the Cupra. The Octavia VRS has identical power to the Cupra, but the Cupra uses six gears which is a welcome addition, especially on motorways. The same engine can be found in the Audi TT, S3 and… Read Full Review

I've now had my Leon 1.8 20VT 180 Cupra for 5 months( 2. owner). Comming from a BMW 318ti (E36) I was not expecting the same quality in a Seat, and I was right. But aside from a few poorly fitted interior panels, bad paint job and a few minor rattles it's not too bad at all. You get a LOT of bang for the buck, and overall the quality is as least as good as VW.. but the build quality (paintwork, interior/exterior fitting, materials used in interior) is not as good as Audi or BMW. But then… Read Full Review
