0:00:05.040,0:00:09.120
what is up guys

0:00:06.080,0:00:09.679
Syed here and today i am in the 2018 seat

0:00:09.120,0:00:12.000
leon

0:00:09.679,0:00:13.679
cupra so some of you when you watch the

0:00:12.000,0:00:15.120
cupra ateca review

0:00:13.679,0:00:17.279
i mentioned that cupra is like a

0:00:15.120,0:00:18.720
standalone brand different from seat

0:00:17.279,0:00:20.480
and when you look at this car you might

0:00:18.720,0:00:23.199
be wondering why it’s called the seat

0:00:20.480,0:00:24.560
leon cupra not just the cupra leon so

0:00:23.199,0:00:26.400
let me explain this car came out in like

0:00:24.560,0:00:29.519
2017 2018.

0:00:26.400,0:00:30.000
at that time cupra wasn’t a standalone

0:00:29.519,0:00:31.760
brand

0:00:30.000,0:00:34.239
yet so that’s why this is called the

0:00:31.760,0:00:34.880
seiyad leon cupra but uh moving forward

0:00:34.239,0:00:37.200
the

0:00:34.880,0:00:38.800
successor to this car will be the cupra

0:00:37.200,0:00:41.760
leon and then you have all the

0:00:38.800,0:00:42.640
cupra tikka you know the cupra fermenter

0:00:41.760,0:00:44.559
and all the other

0:00:42.640,0:00:46.160
cupras so yeah i hope that explains it

0:00:44.559,0:00:47.680
so some quick specs for this car this

0:00:46.160,0:00:49.920
has the two liter four-cylinder

0:00:47.680,0:00:51.440
turbocharged engine it’s the ea triple

0:00:49.920,0:00:52.879
eight which is used in a lot of

0:00:51.440,0:00:55.920
volkswagen group cars

0:00:52.879,0:00:59.440
so in your audis like your a4 a5

0:00:55.920,0:01:01.760
a6 your volkswagen golf gti

0:00:59.440,0:01:03.760
your skodas even so it’s an engine

0:01:01.760,0:01:06.080
that’s used in a lot of different cars

0:01:03.760,0:01:07.840
just that it’s tuned to give different

0:01:06.080,0:01:10.960
power outputs so for this car it

0:01:07.840,0:01:12.479
produces 290 horsepower 350 newton

0:01:10.960,0:01:14.080
meters of top and if you look at the

0:01:12.479,0:01:15.759
size of the car you’ll be like okay

0:01:14.080,0:01:18.080
that’s a lot of power for

0:01:15.759,0:01:20.320
such a small car so this car is a hot

0:01:18.080,0:01:22.159
hatch and some of you were asking

0:01:20.320,0:01:24.080
for comparison between this and the golf

0:01:22.159,0:01:25.759
gti but i think

0:01:24.080,0:01:27.680
in terms of pricing wise right the golf

0:01:25.759,0:01:29.439
gti is higher than this and in terms of

0:01:27.680,0:01:31.040
power so the golf gti is

0:01:29.439,0:01:33.280
way down on power compared to this this

0:01:31.040,0:01:35.600
is 290 horsepower the gold gti has like

0:01:33.280,0:01:36.880
220 something two to six horsepower if

0:01:35.600,0:01:38.799
i’m correct so i think a

0:01:36.880,0:01:40.720
more fair comparison would be this and

0:01:38.799,0:01:42.720
the golf r and we’ll talk about

0:01:40.720,0:01:45.159
comparisons uh later on in the video

0:01:42.720,0:01:46.320
acceleration for this car 0 to 100 in

0:01:45.159,0:01:49.040
5.7

0:01:46.320,0:01:51.119
seconds on paper so that is quite fast

0:01:49.040,0:01:51.759
transmission wise this has a six-speed

0:01:51.119,0:01:53.520
dsg

0:01:51.759,0:01:55.840
transmission sending power to the front

0:01:53.520,0:01:57.360
wheels yes this car is front wheel drive

0:01:55.840,0:01:58.960
so in essence when you look at the

0:01:57.360,0:02:01.280
performance figures of this car

0:01:58.960,0:02:02.079
this is actually faster than a gti

0:02:01.280,0:02:05.600
faster than

0:02:02.079,0:02:06.320
an rs245 faster than a mini john cooper

0:02:05.600,0:02:08.879
works even

0:02:06.320,0:02:10.080
because all those cars do zero to 100 in

0:02:08.879,0:02:12.239
above six seconds

0:02:10.080,0:02:14.160
but this car takes less than six it’s

0:02:12.239,0:02:16.800
5.7 5.8 seconds

0:02:14.160,0:02:18.480
only a focus rs and a golf r is faster

0:02:16.800,0:02:19.840
than this car but those cars are like

0:02:18.480,0:02:21.200
closer to 200k

0:02:19.840,0:02:22.800
and i’m gonna talk about pricing and all

0:02:21.200,0:02:23.599
that later on also so i think the

0:02:22.800,0:02:25.520
closest cars

0:02:23.599,0:02:26.720
that can compete with this car in the

0:02:25.520,0:02:28.720
same price category

0:02:26.720,0:02:31.200
and the same kind of like performance

0:02:28.720,0:02:32.879
figures would be the mcgann rs280 which

0:02:31.200,0:02:36.080
i just drove i think two weeks back

0:02:32.879,0:02:36.879
and the hyundai i30n the regular hyundai

0:02:36.080,0:02:39.200
i30n

0:02:36.879,0:02:40.959
and the hyundai i30n performance pack so

0:02:39.200,0:02:42.319
yeah this car has two very strong

0:02:40.959,0:02:44.080
competitors in the

0:02:42.319,0:02:46.400
same price segment and performance

0:02:44.080,0:02:46.400
segment

0:02:46.560,0:02:50.239
alright next let’s talk about the

0:02:48.400,0:02:52.319
exterior of this car so first of all i

0:02:50.239,0:02:54.160
think this is a fantastic looking car

0:02:52.319,0:02:55.360
it looks like the cupra tikka just

0:02:54.160,0:02:57.680
smaller and

0:02:55.360,0:02:59.360
shorter version of it there’s not much

0:02:57.680,0:03:00.640
options that you have to pay for on this

0:02:59.360,0:03:02.560
car i think a lot of things come

0:03:00.640,0:03:03.120
extended so you get the honeycomb grille

0:03:02.560,0:03:06.159
in front

0:03:03.120,0:03:07.599
the led headlights you get the 19 inch

0:03:06.159,0:03:10.319
alloy wheels four port

0:03:07.599,0:03:12.319
calipers adaptive suspension as well and

0:03:10.319,0:03:13.920
uh one thing i want to point out is that

0:03:12.319,0:03:16.080
i think this car would have looked

0:03:13.920,0:03:17.680
better with a quad exhaust instead of

0:03:16.080,0:03:19.200
just the dual exhaust in the back

0:03:17.680,0:03:21.360
dimensions wise this car is about the

0:03:19.200,0:03:23.920
same size as a mach 7 golf but

0:03:21.360,0:03:26.000
this car is a bit longer lower and wider

0:03:23.920,0:03:28.000
than the golf

0:03:26.000,0:03:29.519
interior wise like i mentioned a lot of

0:03:28.000,0:03:31.360
things come as standard already with the

0:03:29.519,0:03:32.560
car so inside you get you know your

0:03:31.360,0:03:34.959
ambient lighting

0:03:32.560,0:03:35.599
keyless access rear view camera parking

0:03:34.959,0:03:37.360
sensors

0:03:35.599,0:03:38.959
but this car doesn’t have a 360 camera

0:03:37.360,0:03:40.959
by the way just a regular

0:03:38.959,0:03:43.120
reverse camera and interior design wise

0:03:40.959,0:03:45.440
i think it’s very similar to the

0:03:43.120,0:03:48.000
interior of the cupra techa so

0:03:45.440,0:03:48.640
you get cheaper filling materials

0:03:48.000,0:03:51.200
throughout

0:03:48.640,0:03:51.680
like you see here this part can flex

0:03:51.200,0:03:53.760
actually

0:03:51.680,0:03:54.879
look at that it’s not a luxurious kind

0:03:53.760,0:03:56.560
of interior so

0:03:54.879,0:03:58.560
you you get like this carbon fiber

0:03:56.560,0:04:00.000
looking trim at the side this you know

0:03:58.560,0:04:01.840
leather here

0:04:00.000,0:04:03.760
which is you know quite nice to look at

0:04:01.840,0:04:06.959
quite nice to touch as well but you know

0:04:03.760,0:04:10.400
you see this very hollow

0:04:06.959,0:04:12.080
very just regular black plastic that you

0:04:10.400,0:04:13.519
can find in

0:04:12.080,0:04:15.519
cheap cars basically but you know

0:04:13.519,0:04:17.759
everything else in the car kind of feels

0:04:15.519,0:04:19.600
yeah it’s decent quality i would say the

0:04:17.759,0:04:21.600
steering wheel feels really good this

0:04:19.600,0:04:23.520
leather you get a white stitching on the

0:04:21.600,0:04:24.880
steering wheel as well very volkswagen

0:04:23.520,0:04:27.360
looking kind of buttons

0:04:24.880,0:04:29.360
also again looking gear shifter the

0:04:27.360,0:04:29.680
leather on the seats also it’s uh you

0:04:29.360,0:04:31.919
know

0:04:29.680,0:04:33.120
not the same kind of leather you get on

0:04:31.919,0:04:35.520
your

0:04:33.120,0:04:37.600
german cars like a bm mercedes this kind

0:04:35.520,0:04:38.880
it’s just a different grade of leather

0:04:37.600,0:04:40.960
but it’s nice to look at okay

0:04:38.880,0:04:42.240
infotainment wise right i have to point

0:04:40.960,0:04:44.880
out that it works

0:04:42.240,0:04:46.240
but it’s not very sensitive so what

0:04:44.880,0:04:48.080
happens is a lot of times

0:04:46.240,0:04:50.400
um if you you know when you want to like

0:04:48.080,0:04:51.360
scroll through like menu options and

0:04:50.400,0:04:54.400
stuff but

0:04:51.360,0:04:55.520
the infotainment things you want to tap

0:04:54.400,0:04:56.000
on it so what happens is you’re

0:04:55.520,0:04:57.919
scrolling

0:04:56.000,0:04:59.440
but it accidentally goes into one of the

0:04:57.919,0:05:02.639
menu items which is

0:04:59.440,0:05:04.400
quite annoying but i think that’s a not

0:05:02.639,0:05:06.400
too big an issue i guess

0:05:04.400,0:05:08.240
because most of the time i’m using apple

0:05:06.400,0:05:10.479
carplay anyway in apple carplay

0:05:08.240,0:05:12.080
the icons are quite big and there’s not

0:05:10.479,0:05:12.479
much menu items for you to scroll

0:05:12.080,0:05:14.000
through

0:05:12.479,0:05:15.520
so it’s only when you want to use like

0:05:14.000,0:05:17.680
your radio for example

0:05:15.520,0:05:19.360
then uh you may have this problem or

0:05:17.680,0:05:19.919
when you want to go to your car settings

0:05:19.360,0:05:23.520
to

0:05:19.919,0:05:25.120
reset your trip computer stuff like that

0:05:23.520,0:05:27.199
practicality-wise actually it’s quite

0:05:25.120,0:05:29.120
good i have to say so for example you

0:05:27.199,0:05:31.520
see your door beans here you can fit

0:05:29.120,0:05:32.800
quite a few small bottles basically over

0:05:31.520,0:05:34.880
here your center console

0:05:32.800,0:05:35.840
it’s not that big but you get like a few

0:05:34.880,0:05:38.320
storage areas

0:05:35.840,0:05:39.680
one here one here two cup holders and if

0:05:38.320,0:05:41.120
you’re not charging your phone this car

0:05:39.680,0:05:42.160
comes with wireless charging by the way

0:05:41.120,0:05:43.600
so if you’re not using the wireless

0:05:42.160,0:05:44.560
charging tray you can put your stuff

0:05:43.600,0:05:47.120
there as well

0:05:44.560,0:05:47.759
glove compartment also yeah decently

0:05:47.120,0:05:49.360
sized

0:05:47.759,0:05:50.800
over in the back with this seat in my

0:05:49.360,0:05:53.440
original driver’s position

0:05:50.800,0:05:55.199
i do get a bit of leg room i do get

0:05:53.440,0:05:58.240
quite a bit of head room as well

0:05:55.199,0:06:00.319
transmission tunnel is a bit tall so in

0:05:58.240,0:06:02.880
the back i think you can just about

0:06:00.319,0:06:03.680
fit three average size adults boot space

0:06:02.880,0:06:06.240
it’s about

0:06:03.680,0:06:07.520
380 liters which is about the same size

0:06:06.240,0:06:09.680
you get in a golf

0:06:07.520,0:06:12.960
and you can fold all the seats all the

0:06:09.680,0:06:15.440
way down to make more room

0:06:12.960,0:06:17.440
all right features this car is not like

0:06:15.440,0:06:18.000
feature rich or anything but it does

0:06:17.440,0:06:20.560
come with

0:06:18.000,0:06:21.840
some nicer features so first is this

0:06:20.560,0:06:24.000
instrument cluster which

0:06:21.840,0:06:25.120
is very similar to your audi virtual

0:06:24.000,0:06:28.319
cockpit and

0:06:25.120,0:06:29.280
it just works brilliantly okay it’s easy

0:06:28.319,0:06:31.280
to use

0:06:29.280,0:06:33.759
your dials gauges and everything is very

0:06:31.280,0:06:34.000
clear your infotainment system over here

0:06:33.759,0:06:36.160
like

0:06:34.000,0:06:38.720
i mentioned it’s not intuitive basically

0:06:36.160,0:06:39.199
but you do get apple carplay and android

0:06:38.720,0:06:41.600
auto

0:06:39.199,0:06:43.440
park pilot i have to say it works really

0:06:41.600,0:06:44.240
well so sometimes like when i’m just

0:06:43.440,0:06:46.000
driving

0:06:44.240,0:06:47.680
and i’m not even putting i’m not even

0:06:46.000,0:06:50.639
putting the kind to reverse gear but

0:06:47.680,0:06:52.479
it detects uh something in front and

0:06:50.639,0:06:54.880
automatically it will turn on

0:06:52.479,0:06:56.400
and start to you know like gauge the

0:06:54.880,0:06:58.080
distance between you and the obstacle in

0:06:56.400,0:07:00.319
front so it’s quite smart

0:06:58.080,0:07:01.360
and another thing also there was once

0:07:00.319,0:07:03.840
where i

0:07:01.360,0:07:04.639
think i was too close to like the curb

0:07:03.840,0:07:06.960
or something

0:07:04.639,0:07:08.960
and it automatically break for me so you

0:07:06.960,0:07:10.560
get a reverse parking camera but you

0:07:08.960,0:07:12.240
don’t get 360

0:07:10.560,0:07:13.919
surround camera you get wireless

0:07:12.240,0:07:16.639
charging for your phone you get

0:07:13.919,0:07:17.919
a brake auto hole you get engine start

0:07:16.639,0:07:19.020
stop yeah i think

0:07:17.919,0:07:21.120
that’s about it

0:07:19.020,0:07:23.840
[Music]

0:07:21.120,0:07:24.960
all right so how does this car feel on

0:07:23.840,0:07:27.919
the road

0:07:24.960,0:07:29.120
um first of all right you get four

0:07:27.919,0:07:31.360
different driving modes

0:07:29.120,0:07:32.639
so there’s comfort there’s sport there’s

0:07:31.360,0:07:34.240
cupra and individual

0:07:32.639,0:07:36.400
and one thing i want to point out about

0:07:34.240,0:07:38.080
this mode is that the individual mode

0:07:36.400,0:07:39.919
i know this is a feature you get in a

0:07:38.080,0:07:42.160
lot of other cars but

0:07:39.919,0:07:43.120
what happens is individual mode you can

0:07:42.160,0:07:45.120
change the cars

0:07:43.120,0:07:47.039
settings to suit your preferences

0:07:45.120,0:07:47.680
basically so for example you can leave

0:07:47.039,0:07:50.479
your

0:07:47.680,0:07:52.319
adaptive suspension in comfort mode you

0:07:50.479,0:07:54.960
can leave your steering in

0:07:52.319,0:07:56.080
normal or comfort mode as well but leave

0:07:54.960,0:07:59.360
your engine

0:07:56.080,0:08:01.120
in cupra mode so you get a

0:07:59.360,0:08:03.120
light steering you get comfortable

0:08:01.120,0:08:04.639
suspension but the engine

0:08:03.120,0:08:06.400
is in cupra mode meaning you can hear

0:08:04.639,0:08:07.680
the exhaust so right now i’m driving in

0:08:06.400,0:08:09.520
a comfort mode

0:08:07.680,0:08:12.240
let me just change it to cupra you can

0:08:09.520,0:08:16.319
see the difference almost immediately

0:08:12.240,0:08:16.319
so this is a comfort

0:08:17.360,0:08:22.519
this is cupra

0:08:18.390,0:08:22.519
[Music]

0:08:24.479,0:08:27.680
when you are driving in comfort mode

0:08:26.319,0:08:30.960
this car is like you know

0:08:27.680,0:08:32.479
at home chilling drinking tetare wearing

0:08:30.960,0:08:33.680
t-shirts wearing shorts not wearing a

0:08:32.479,0:08:35.279
t-shirt even

0:08:33.680,0:08:37.839
and you put it into cupra mode it’s like

0:08:35.279,0:08:40.479
suddenly just wakes up and then puts on

0:08:37.839,0:08:41.120
like its gym attire and then it’s ready

0:08:40.479,0:08:43.519
to go

0:08:41.120,0:08:45.200
and in comfort mode right the car feels

0:08:43.519,0:08:48.000
very sedated very

0:08:45.200,0:08:49.360
civilized it’s like you can lend this

0:08:48.000,0:08:51.360
car to your family member

0:08:49.360,0:08:53.440
and they won’t even know that it’s a

0:08:51.360,0:08:55.279
performance car until

0:08:53.440,0:08:57.440
they put it into cupra mode really it’s

0:08:55.279,0:08:58.959
very sedated very civilized i don’t hear

0:08:57.440,0:09:01.200
the exhaust

0:08:58.959,0:09:03.680
i don’t yeah it feels like a regular car

0:09:01.200,0:09:04.160
doesn’t feel like a 300 horsepower hot

0:09:03.680,0:09:06.399
hatch

0:09:04.160,0:09:08.800
sports mode is i don’t even bother with

0:09:06.399,0:09:11.519
sports mode sports mode is like

0:09:08.800,0:09:13.360
ordering make spicy without the spicy i

0:09:11.519,0:09:15.600
don’t see the point of it i either drive

0:09:13.360,0:09:17.070
in comfort or cupra okay now when we put

0:09:15.600,0:09:19.519
it into kukra mode right

0:09:17.070,0:09:23.279
[Music]

0:09:19.519,0:09:24.880
i hope the camera can pick up the sound

0:09:23.279,0:09:26.640
because it sounds amazing it’s the

0:09:24.880,0:09:27.680
exhaust sounds louder than the one in

0:09:26.640,0:09:29.600
the cupra article

0:09:27.680,0:09:31.970
the steering becomes sharper the

0:09:29.600,0:09:35.360
suspension supposedly becomes stiffer

0:09:31.970,0:09:37.519
[Music]

0:09:35.360,0:09:39.600
and i did a fuel consumption test while

0:09:37.519,0:09:41.760
driving around in opera mode

0:09:39.600,0:09:43.920
and it’s quite atrocious the fuel

0:09:41.760,0:09:50.160
consumption i think it was like

0:09:43.920,0:09:52.080
13 or 14 liters per 100 kilometers

0:09:50.160,0:09:54.640
but yeah just driving this car around

0:09:52.080,0:09:56.800
right you are constantly reminded of how

0:09:54.640,0:09:58.800
low this car is it’s not like super low

0:09:56.800,0:10:01.839
or anything but you do

0:09:58.800,0:10:03.440
feel lower than most drivers

0:10:01.839,0:10:05.040
out there another thing about this

0:10:03.440,0:10:08.160
driving this car is that the c

0:10:05.040,0:10:08.959
pillars are actually quite big so that’s

0:10:08.160,0:10:10.959
a

0:10:08.959,0:10:12.720
blind spot there i tried pushing this

0:10:10.959,0:10:15.920
car fast in the corners

0:10:12.720,0:10:18.320
and it grips for the most part but right

0:10:15.920,0:10:20.079
when i did launch control and i’ve tried

0:10:18.320,0:10:22.800
launch control i think

0:10:20.079,0:10:24.079
a good five six times already and every

0:10:22.800,0:10:26.959
single time i do it

0:10:24.079,0:10:28.320
there’s a lot of wheel spin there’s you

0:10:26.959,0:10:29.440
know just too much stock going to the

0:10:28.320,0:10:33.200
front wheels

0:10:29.440,0:10:35.360
so with that i know that there’s a

0:10:33.200,0:10:37.519
you know i shouldn’t push this car too

0:10:35.360,0:10:39.600
hard in the corners because

0:10:37.519,0:10:41.120
you’ll never know when you’re gonna just

0:10:39.600,0:10:43.760
lose that grip

0:10:41.120,0:10:44.240
and the car will just understeer and

0:10:43.760,0:10:46.880
boom

0:10:44.240,0:10:47.839
you plow head on into the curve also

0:10:46.880,0:10:49.760
another thing

0:10:47.839,0:10:51.360
you know how a lot of small cars right

0:10:49.760,0:10:53.839
when you drive them

0:10:51.360,0:10:56.000
you feel like you’re going fast but

0:10:53.839,0:10:56.320
you’re actually not going that fast at

0:10:56.000,0:10:58.000
all

0:10:56.320,0:11:00.240
it just feels fast because the car is

0:10:58.000,0:11:01.360
small with this car it’s the opposite

0:11:00.240,0:11:02.880
so there were a lot of times where i

0:11:01.360,0:11:04.640
didn’t realize how fast i was going

0:11:02.880,0:11:07.600
until i looked at the meter but yeah

0:11:04.640,0:11:08.959
overall um you know like what i said

0:11:07.600,0:11:12.560
it’s just a pleasant car

0:11:08.959,0:11:13.040
to drive and it’s small so fucking it is

0:11:12.560,0:11:15.519
easy

0:11:13.040,0:11:16.240
maneuvering it is easy steering is a bit

0:11:15.519,0:11:19.760
more on the

0:11:16.240,0:11:21.040
um it’s not exactly light but it is very

0:11:19.760,0:11:22.320
direct i think if you get this car

0:11:21.040,0:11:23.600
you’re not gonna be complaining about

0:11:22.320,0:11:25.040
the way it drives you’re not gonna

0:11:23.600,0:11:26.959
complain about the power there’s

0:11:25.040,0:11:28.320
more than enough power there’s more than

0:11:26.959,0:11:30.480
enough power

0:11:28.320,0:11:32.320
for the car to know what to do with it

0:11:30.480,0:11:33.279
so overall what i like about this seat

0:11:32.320,0:11:35.120
leon cupra

0:11:33.279,0:11:37.519
is number one i like the looks number

0:11:35.120,0:11:39.680
two the performance is fantastic uh

0:11:37.519,0:11:41.760
number three i think it’s quite

0:11:39.680,0:11:44.560
practical as well for the size

0:11:41.760,0:11:46.320
what i dislike about this car is

0:11:44.560,0:11:49.360
probably number one the infotainment

0:11:46.320,0:11:51.680
is not as intuitive as i

0:11:49.360,0:11:52.959
like it to be number two probably you

0:11:51.680,0:11:56.150
know if i’m nitpicking

0:11:52.959,0:11:56.690
just the interior materials

0:11:56.150,0:11:59.440
[Applause]

0:11:56.690,0:12:01.600
[Music]

0:11:59.440,0:12:03.200
the problem with this car is that it’s

0:12:01.600,0:12:05.360
not exactly this car’s

0:12:03.200,0:12:07.200
problem it’s more like the competition

0:12:05.360,0:12:09.279
for this car okay so like i mentioned at

0:12:07.200,0:12:11.680
this roughly the same price you have the

0:12:09.279,0:12:12.560
again rs 280 and you have the hyundai

0:12:11.680,0:12:14.480
i30n

0:12:12.560,0:12:16.639
now on facebook some of you wanted a

0:12:14.480,0:12:17.040
comparison between this and the golf gti

0:12:16.639,0:12:19.600
but

0:12:17.040,0:12:21.120
i think a fair comparison will be

0:12:19.600,0:12:23.440
between this and the golf r

0:12:21.120,0:12:25.360
because the golf gti is more expensive

0:12:23.440,0:12:28.720
than this yet it’s still

0:12:25.360,0:12:31.600
down uh on power the golf gti has like

0:12:28.720,0:12:33.040
226 horsepower this is 290. so the power

0:12:31.600,0:12:34.480
difference is quite big

0:12:33.040,0:12:36.800
but when you compare this with the golf

0:12:34.480,0:12:40.480
r the golf r is way more expensive than

0:12:36.800,0:12:42.560
this okay so this car costs about 161k

0:12:40.480,0:12:44.720
somewhere around there and at that price

0:12:42.560,0:12:47.120
point right you have very strong

0:12:44.720,0:12:48.079
competitors like the renault again rs

0:12:47.120,0:12:51.680
280

0:12:48.079,0:12:53.279
and the hyundai i30n so this car is

0:12:51.680,0:12:56.800
priced at 161k

0:12:53.279,0:12:59.120
the renault mcgann rs is priced at 166k

0:12:56.800,0:13:01.680
slightly higher whereas the hyundai i30n

0:12:59.120,0:13:04.839
starts at 138k for the regular one

0:13:01.680,0:13:07.760
and the i30n performance pack costs

0:13:04.839,0:13:09.519
158k so the i30n both variants are

0:13:07.760,0:13:11.200
cheaper than this car and the i30n

0:13:09.519,0:13:12.000
performance pack comes with 276

0:13:11.200,0:13:14.399
horsepower

0:13:12.000,0:13:16.480
which is very close to this car and that

0:13:14.399,0:13:18.959
car comes with a six-speed manual

0:13:16.480,0:13:19.839
so it provides like the similar kind of

0:13:18.959,0:13:21.839
performance

0:13:19.839,0:13:23.760
with a manual transmission at a cheaper

0:13:21.839,0:13:26.240
price whereas the mcgann rs

0:13:23.760,0:13:28.560
is a bit more expensive but it’s also in

0:13:26.240,0:13:31.600
my opinion a bit more

0:13:28.560,0:13:32.720
exotic it’s a bit more

0:13:31.600,0:13:34.720
there’s a lot of character with them

0:13:32.720,0:13:35.680
again rs okay if you are comparing these

0:13:34.720,0:13:38.000
cars i think it

0:13:35.680,0:13:39.120
just boils down to what you really want

0:13:38.000,0:13:40.480
because the prices are very close to

0:13:39.120,0:13:41.920
each other the performance also quite

0:13:40.480,0:13:43.040
close to each other so yeah guys that’s

0:13:41.920,0:13:44.399
about it for this review hope you

0:13:43.040,0:13:47.279
enjoyed it and i’ll see you guys in the

0:13:44.399,0:13:47.279
next video

SEAT Leon Cupra vs Megane RS Video Transcript

0:00:00.080,0:00:04.319
okay guys so in this video i’m going to

0:00:01.520,0:00:07.200
be comparing the renault Megane rs 280

0:00:04.319,0:00:08.480
and this car the seat leon cupra which

0:00:07.200,0:00:10.320
is the one i’m in right now

0:00:08.480,0:00:12.320
okay so exterior wise i think it goes to

0:00:10.320,0:00:14.559
the renault because

0:00:12.320,0:00:17.199
it just has more road presence um if you

0:00:14.559,0:00:18.960
look at the tonic orange

0:00:17.199,0:00:21.199
or the sirius yellow i think they call

0:00:18.960,0:00:23.519
it on the renault again rs

0:00:21.199,0:00:24.720
it just really stands out it has a lot

0:00:23.519,0:00:26.800
of road presence

0:00:24.720,0:00:28.560
in terms of looks both cars are good

0:00:26.800,0:00:30.640
looking it’s just that

0:00:28.560,0:00:32.800
this car compared if you put this car in

0:00:30.640,0:00:33.760
the random again in like tonic orange

0:00:32.800,0:00:36.079
side by side

0:00:33.760,0:00:38.079
this car will look kind of dull because

0:00:36.079,0:00:39.360
that car is just so bright and just

0:00:38.079,0:00:42.559
captures your attention

0:00:39.360,0:00:44.160
if like you are driving past there’s a

0:00:42.559,0:00:46.640
good chance that people will turn their

0:00:44.160,0:00:49.600
heads to look at you when you are in the

0:00:46.640,0:00:51.199
reno again in tonic orange and that’s

0:00:49.600,0:00:53.120
exactly what happened when

0:00:51.199,0:00:54.320
i drove the car the owner okay so for

0:00:53.120,0:00:57.199
yeah road presence

0:00:54.320,0:00:58.719
uh definitely goes to the renault again

0:00:57.199,0:01:00.239
but you have to choose like

0:00:58.719,0:01:02.000
either the tonic orange or the serious

0:01:00.239,0:01:03.840
yellow by the way those colors

0:01:02.000,0:01:04.879
are optional extras you do have to pay

0:01:03.840,0:01:07.119
for them i think it’s about three

0:01:04.879,0:01:09.920
thousand dollars extra for those two

0:01:07.119,0:01:12.159
uh colors next we go into the interior i

0:01:09.920,0:01:14.400
think it goes to them again as well

0:01:12.159,0:01:16.080
uh reason i say that is because both

0:01:14.400,0:01:17.759
cars okay the interior it’s not like

0:01:16.080,0:01:19.600
luxurious or anything but

0:01:17.759,0:01:21.759
when you step into them again right you

0:01:19.600,0:01:23.439
just it just makes you feel good it

0:01:21.759,0:01:24.960
makes you feel special because they use

0:01:23.439,0:01:26.640
a lot of different materials and

0:01:24.960,0:01:28.320
for example right in them again the

0:01:26.640,0:01:29.439
steering wheel is made of like metal

0:01:28.320,0:01:31.439
plastic

0:01:29.439,0:01:32.880
leather and alcantara and they use

0:01:31.439,0:01:34.400
alcantara in other parts of the car as

0:01:32.880,0:01:36.400
well for example in the seats

0:01:34.400,0:01:38.560
and you get carbon fiber looking trims

0:01:36.400,0:01:40.000
throughout the again rs interior

0:01:38.560,0:01:42.000
and you know together all the red

0:01:40.000,0:01:42.479
stitching everywhere it just makes you

0:01:42.000,0:01:44.640
feel

0:01:42.479,0:01:47.520
special it makes you feel like you are

0:01:44.640,0:01:48.720
in something exotic this car’s interior

0:01:47.520,0:01:50.960
is not bad as well

0:01:48.720,0:01:53.119
just that i mean there’s no competition

0:01:50.960,0:01:55.040
between the interior of this car and the

0:01:53.119,0:01:57.360
interior of them again rs you know it’s

0:01:55.040,0:01:59.920
just a very big difference and

0:01:57.360,0:02:00.880
i prefer the interior of them again rs

0:01:59.920,0:02:02.880
no questions there

0:02:00.880,0:02:04.399
features wise i think both cars are

0:02:02.880,0:02:06.000
quite similar in terms of

0:02:04.399,0:02:08.080
the amount of features they offer you

0:02:06.000,0:02:10.959
get like android auto

0:02:08.080,0:02:12.319
apple carplay uh you get your reverse

0:02:10.959,0:02:14.560
cameras stuff like that

0:02:12.319,0:02:16.560
i think features wise yeah it’s i think

0:02:14.560,0:02:19.280
it’s a tie between both cars

0:02:16.560,0:02:19.760
driving fun and performance which is the

0:02:19.280,0:02:21.280
main

0:02:19.760,0:02:23.840
priority when you’re looking at these

0:02:21.280,0:02:26.080
cars

0:02:23.840,0:02:27.440
it’s also very difficult to choose

0:02:26.080,0:02:30.480
between them because both

0:02:27.440,0:02:32.959
offer a lot of performance a lot of fun

0:02:30.480,0:02:35.680
but i think overall it takes more skill

0:02:32.959,0:02:37.760
to drive the renault as compared to this

0:02:35.680,0:02:40.080
because for example the renault right

0:02:37.760,0:02:41.360
you get that twitch that talk steer kind

0:02:40.080,0:02:43.519
of twitch you have to be

0:02:41.360,0:02:45.519
in a way mentally prepared for that also

0:02:43.519,0:02:46.879
the mcgann right can’t just floor it and

0:02:45.519,0:02:48.879
expect it to pull

0:02:46.879,0:02:51.519
you have to always be in the right gear

0:02:48.879,0:02:53.760
for for you to be able to drive the car

0:02:51.519,0:02:55.680
efficiently and extract the most

0:02:53.760,0:02:57.120
performance out of it so i guess the

0:02:55.680,0:02:59.440
mcgann makes you

0:02:57.120,0:03:00.159
a more skilled driver you know this car

0:02:59.440,0:03:02.480
is

0:03:00.159,0:03:04.640
much easier to drive as compared to the

0:03:02.480,0:03:07.120
again because it’s just so

0:03:04.640,0:03:07.680
it’s just so easy put it into cupra mode

0:03:07.120,0:03:09.440
and

0:03:07.680,0:03:11.040
in whatever gear you are in the car will

0:03:09.440,0:03:13.040
still pull it’s just very easy for

0:03:11.040,0:03:14.560
anyone to jump in and drive fast but in

0:03:13.040,0:03:15.200
them again it’s a bit harder another

0:03:14.560,0:03:17.040
thing also

0:03:15.200,0:03:19.440
the magen doesn’t have adaptive

0:03:17.040,0:03:19.840
suspension unlike this car so this is a

0:03:19.440,0:03:21.360
car

0:03:19.840,0:03:23.280
that you can share with your family

0:03:21.360,0:03:23.680
members anybody in your family can drive

0:03:23.280,0:03:25.840
it

0:03:23.680,0:03:27.360
and for example if you have someone who

0:03:25.840,0:03:29.760
wants to go fast all the time

0:03:27.360,0:03:31.519
they can do that in this car if you like

0:03:29.760,0:03:34.560
your mom or something is driving

0:03:31.519,0:03:36.640
she can get a comfortable and civilized

0:03:34.560,0:03:38.640
so in a way it’s more versatile it’s

0:03:36.640,0:03:41.519
more flexible that can it can cater

0:03:38.640,0:03:42.239
to everyone’s needs them again i think

0:03:41.519,0:03:43.519
it’s

0:03:42.239,0:03:46.000
slightly stiffer than this car it

0:03:43.519,0:03:48.159
doesn’t have adaptive suspension so it’s

0:03:46.000,0:03:50.080
stiff like all the time and that’s not

0:03:48.159,0:03:51.760
exactly a car that you can

0:03:50.080,0:03:53.360
you know share with your family members

0:03:51.760,0:03:55.599
because it’s just

0:03:53.360,0:03:57.680
a performance machine and you know it’s

0:03:55.599,0:04:00.959
not as versatile as this

0:03:57.680,0:04:02.799
pricing wise the seya leon cupra wins

0:04:00.959,0:04:03.439
because it’s just cheaper than them

0:04:02.799,0:04:05.200
again

0:04:03.439,0:04:06.879
but not by much i think the difference

0:04:05.200,0:04:10.239
is only about five thousand dollars

0:04:06.879,0:04:11.360
so this car is about 161k the mcgann is

0:04:10.239,0:04:12.840
166k

0:04:11.360,0:04:15.840
and in terms of warranty and support

0:04:12.840,0:04:15.840
wise

0:04:16.799,0:04:21.040
so i mean when you buy the car you can

0:04:18.239,0:04:23.040
probably go for like a better warranty

0:04:21.040,0:04:24.320
package or something so overall which

0:04:23.040,0:04:27.360
car would i choose

0:04:24.320,0:04:29.040
it’s not so easy to choose between

0:04:27.360,0:04:30.400
these two cars they have their strengths

0:04:29.040,0:04:33.040
and weaknesses um

0:04:30.400,0:04:33.759
i think in terms of the exotic kind of

0:04:33.040,0:04:36.320
factor

0:04:33.759,0:04:37.440
the mcgann wins in terms of daily

0:04:36.320,0:04:40.000
drivability

0:04:37.440,0:04:42.000
and comfort this car wins so it’s not so

0:04:40.000,0:04:43.840
easy to choose but i’ll put it this way

0:04:42.000,0:04:45.440
if let’s say i can only have one car

0:04:43.840,0:04:47.360
right i gonna have one car i would

0:04:45.440,0:04:50.000
probably go for this one because

0:04:47.360,0:04:51.520
like i said it’s a bit more flexible

0:04:50.000,0:04:52.800
anybody can drive it

0:04:51.520,0:04:54.720
and they can get the experience that

0:04:52.800,0:04:57.040
they want but if i can have multiple

0:04:54.720,0:04:59.759
cars right i would go for them again

0:04:57.040,0:05:00.880
because it’s just more exotic it has

0:04:59.759,0:05:04.320
more character

0:05:00.880,0:05:06.320
and yeah it’s really like meant for you

0:05:04.320,0:05:08.160
to have fun with that’s the entire

0:05:06.320,0:05:09.280
purpose of them again and it suits that

0:05:08.160,0:05:10.800
purpose really well

0:05:09.280,0:05:13.039
i don’t know what’s the score right now

0:05:10.800,0:05:15.520
between these two cars but yeah that’s

0:05:13.039,0:05:16.560
my take on these two cars and thank you

0:05:15.520,0:05:20.960
so much for watching

0:05:16.560,0:05:20.960
and i’ll see you guys in the next video
