For a newly-founded brand, Cupra has been quite productive so far.
Now it’s time for a second design study from Cupra and this is our first official look at it courtesy of a 15-second video teaser. Titled “Cupra Concept Teaser,” the footage reveals the sleek silhouette of what could be a preview of the next-generation Cupra Leon hot hatch.
The video is not accompanied by any text but giving the timing of its release we can safely assume that the concept vehicle will debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September. The low-slung front end and the steeply raked windscreen lead us to believe this is not an SUV which only leaves us with the Leon, Seat’s next big launch.
Camouflaged prototypes of the next-generation Seat Leon have already been spotted around Europe and while this concept seems sharper and more aggressive it could preview the upcoming Cupra Leon hot hatch.
The video allows us to see the familiar LED lighting, the illuminated Cupra badge on the bumper, the lower roofline, and an intricate alloy wheel design. For now we can only speculate regarding the study’s powertrain but the 245 PS (242 hp) plug-in hybrid system from the Cupra Formentor should not be ruled out.
Still, the market would definitely welcome a more powerful power plant and the top dog Cupra Leon should get something in the region of 300 horsepower or more.
