2014 SEAT Leon CUPRA Is Coming Soon

Posted: 04 Dec 2012 11:11 AM PST

CUPRA lovers are going to love the news that 2014 SEAT Leon CUPRA is on the way to the market. Though no possible date has been declared yet, the manufacturing company has declared that the model will be available either in late 2013 or in early 2014. Three different versions of the model will be available and they are five-door, three-door and estate. Mathias Rabe, the boss of R&D has revealed some more information regarding the arrival of the new model. According to his words, a Geneva 2013 debut has already booked the usual three-door version of the CUPRA and the estate version will be revealed later in the same year in Frankfurt.

Alejandro Mesonero, the chief designer of the model has declared that the design of the new 2014 SEAT Leon CUPRA has already been finished and he also described the upcoming model as a stunning one. Probably we are going to experience a lowered height along with alloy wheels of 18 inches. Hopefully the body kit will be more attractive and the interior decoration will be more eye-catching and advanced.

The vehicle will get the power from the included 2.0-liter turbo engine that may produce near about 240 HP or 179 kW of energy. The present CUPRA R version is also having the same turbocharged engine. The new 2014 SEAT Leon CUPRA is going to be lighter than the previous ones, which will make it more fuel efficient.

Another amazing feature of the upcoming model is its environmental friendly nature. According to Rabes words, the upcoming model will produce less than 89g of CO2 per kilometer which may have huge influence on preserving the environmental balance. Moreover, he adds that changes in styling will be very few comparing the previous versions and just some modifications will be made.

Posted: 04 Dec 2012 11:04 AM PST

Skoda released the first official teaser for the new generation Octavia.  The image captures the car’s left taillight, which features a new design.

There will soon be a new generation of Skoda Octavia and representatives of the Czech Republic-based company began releasing teasers for the new model. The first picture was published on Skoda’s Facebook page and captures the car’s left taillight. As you can see, the Octavia didn’t suffer any dramatic changes, as it keeps the shape that made it popular, but with a slightly different design, similar to that of the Rapid, its younger sibling. The Octavia’s taillights resemble the letter “C”, a design featured on all Skoda cars. However, the letter has a different outline in this set of optical blocks, with stronger and more angular lines.

The new generation Octavia will have Volkswagen’s MQB platform, being the fourth model to share the new architecture, the other ones being Audi A3, Volkswagen Golf and Seat Leon. This new platforms has allowed the Octavia to increase in size, a mandatory requirement since the Rapid, as well as making new engine options available, which were also taken from the Golf. The new Octavia concept will lead to an increase in price, according to some sources inside the company, but the model will be made from high-quality materials.

All we know so far is that the Octavia will be longer by 250 mm, placing it between the Rapid and the Superb. The entry-level version might have a 1.2-liter TSI engine with 105 hp, with engine options including units that will go up to 200 hp, not taking into account the vRS performance model, which will have the 2.0-liter EA888 engine featured on the future Golf VII GTI.

Posted: 04 Dec 2012 10:57 AM PST

Audi has created a limited edition of only 30 units for the R8 model, which will only be available on the Chinese market.

After Bugatti released the special edition Veyron Grand Sport Wei Long in China to celebrate the Year of the Dragon, Audi has also created a limited edition of 30 R8 models, which will only be available in China.

Although we’re speaking of 30 models, they will be numbered 1 to 33, as numbers 4, 14 and 24 will be excluded. The reason for this is that the number four symbolizes bad luck in Chinese culture.
