Wheels on fire – orange is the new silver for SEAT Leon Cupra


Somebody has set my wheels on fire. No, seriously, the Orange Line Pack fitted on our Cupra ST this week are crazy bright. As are the orange door mirrors, orange tailgate lettering and orange front grille surround.

Protestants and fans of orange will love this but I wonder if this fad will pass? Will the orange bits one day be the equivalent of a yellow Mercedes SLK, or a pink Fiat 500.

For now, it’s the one very obvious ‘styling’ issue I have with this very special Leon ST. It is otherwise a very attractive estate car, prettier than the VW Golf estate and very purposeful.

Thank goodness I’m not still living in Northern Ireland. We’re coming up to July 12 and the controversial commemorations of William of Orange. This particular SEAT would turn heads for all the wrong reasons…
