The Cupra Leon was introduced in New Zealand in July 2021. The ANCAP safety rating for the Cupra Leon is based on testing of the SEAT Leon conducted in 2020. ANCAP was provided with technical information and additional test data to show that the test results of the SEAT Leon are also applicable to the Cupra Leon. This ANCAP safety rating applies to all Cupra Leon variants.
Dual frontal, side chest, side head, and a driver knee airbag are standard. A centre airbag which provides added protection to front seat occupants in side impact crashes is also standard on all variants.
Autonomous emergency braking (Car to Car, Vulnerable Road User and Junction Assist) as well as a lane support system with lane keep assist (LKA), lane departure warning (LDW) and emergency lane keeping (ELK), are standard.
