Does A SEAT Leon Cupra Stand A Chance In A Drag Race With A BMW M235i?

The SEAT Leon Cupra is that better-looking VW Golf R with so much power that it could almost make a purist forget about its FWD-ness. But is it good enough to go up against a BMW M235i in a drag race?


The SEAT will again rub enthusiasts the wrong way with its DSG against the manual-equipped BMW that EVO brings along for the race.

There isn't as much ridiculousness from the wheels as you might expect with 280-something horsepower in a front-drive hatch. But imagine what would happen if you gave the SEAT all-wheel drive and oh wait, that's basically what's at your VW dealership.


In any case, enjoy the sounds.

So, with that logic, if the drag race was in reverse would the Seat win?
