Why Lease a Cupra Born?

Cupra Born Interior

Regardless of the chosen trim, the Cupra Born offers two very notable features.

Firstly, there is a digital pod located behind the steering wheel, equipped with a small yet clear 5.3-inch display that presents crucial information such as speed and remaining range.

Secondly, on the side, you'll find a rotary-style gear selector resembling the one previously seen in the now-discontinued BMW i3.

The seating position concerning the steering wheel and pedals are highly favourable, providing a relaxed sensation, while the well-designed seats offer a comfortable experience.

Cupra Born Exterior

The front design of the Cupra Born presents a notably sharper appearance compared to the ID3. It incorporates eye-catching copper-coloured badges and trim inserts, adding an extra touch of visual appeal. The wheels come in sizes ranging from 18 to 20 inches, while at the rear, a sleek LED light bar stretches across the tailgate, enhancing the car's overall stylish aesthetic

Driving and Comfort

The Cupra Born offers two battery options: 58kWh and 77kWh. Regardless of the chosen battery size, both versions come with a single electric motor that powers the rear wheels. Tests have shown that the 58kWh variant achieved a commendable 0-60mph acceleration in just 7.0 seconds.

For those interested, the Cupra Born offers an optional e-Boost feature that allows for even faster acceleration. By opting for this upgrade, you can enjoy a temporary increase in power, resulting in an official 0-62mph time of 6.6 seconds, a noticeable improvement from the standard configuration

Regarding comfort, the Cupra Born offers a commendable level of comfort, effectively cushioning the impact of uneven surfaces and road bumps/pot-holes.
