Where is the CUPRA ?
NewsI have to wonder why we have had to wait so long for the CUPRA to arrive.

Surely we should have had it six months ago, it seems VW are intent on ensuring that the CUPRA does not take sales away from its upcoming GTI-R models or S3 both of which are pretty much the same thing with the S3 have a bit more go for a lot more money (188Kw for R336K). I have to feel that delaying this is going to cost them in sales overall.

And no matter how we feel about SEAT as a brand it still needs to offer something special to grow the brand. Many buyers out there looking for something special and yet reliable is going to look at alternatives to the GTI-R. Thatís what I was looking for when I bought my SEAT I simply did not want to trade my golf4 for a golf5 and thus went to look at the LEON ( ending up with a TDI CUPRA is a different story)

VW set a trend with their performance models and have a superb motor in the 2.0FSI and 2.0TFSI. However they donít exploit their advantage and I donít understand this. Are they trying to create exclusivity by limiting the numbers that their cars are available in. As we have seen in the past GTIís were being sold for R50K above book simply because they had one. And now with the CUPRA they seem to be holding back till the GTI-R gets its big debut and then the CUPRA can follow the main act even if itís been ready for months.

Well here is the main concern I have with this.
Reading todayís news 24 and looking at the Mazda3 MPS they have piped VW to the post by launching a 191KW pocket rocket. This is surely going to be very attractive as an alternative to many in the market for something lively. Letís face it the Mazda3 and LEON could be twins separated at birth in the looks department. With an advanced driving course thrown in that could easily be a deciding factor for many.

It all boils down to the CUPRA with its hot 177KW Motor being down 14Kw on a car that costs 10K less and comes not only with the performance brakes as standard but also with a advanced driving course.

Itís seems VW got caught napping due to internal red tape.
