The latest marque to enter the Australian new car competition kicks off at under $44,000 with the promise of European style and serious performance.
The Volkswagen Group’s newest Australian affiliate, Cupra, will launch in Australia from June with a three-model range starting at $43,990 plus on-roads for the Leon hatchback.
The brand is part of the VW Group umbrella and is based in the Czech Republic. It is the performance-oriented offshoot of the popular Seat stable.
A large part of the appeal of the Cupra brand is the combination of on-road competence and in-car connectivity.
The fact the cars will be sold with a three-year free servicing package won’t hurt to get buyers to cast an eye over the range. The warranty period will be five years and unlimited kilometres.
For some, the biggest issue may be the fact the Cupra’s least expensive model, the Leon V hatch, won’t be available until the third quarter of this year. Yes, you have to wait for the (relatively) cheap seats.
