    So I'm being told the Leon CUPRA 2019 290 Lux is stopping production, I was told the last of them are tickling through now but that's it for production.

    Yes I did do a search, didn't see anything?

    Is this just someone trying to lease me a non-Lux car to get the deal? Or given the new Leon CUPRA revised model is next year possibly?? Is this true???

    I was told by my local dealer that they are stopping temporarily and it will return with a slightly different spec. One of the changes is removal of Leather Seats and replacement with Alcantara Bucket Seats.

    I’m borderline ordering a cupra and trying to decide between the standard one and the lux. This has just thrown another spanner right in the works lol

    Dealer did say he didn’t know of the date this might occur. Another spanner over availability

    I’m trying to decide if the lux is worth the extra to be honest. Do the 19 cars all come with digital clocks now do you know?

    The new 2020 model was released Monday,lucky for me as I changed from a xellence lux to a cupra and could not order the old Lux as the new one came out.I waited a week and now have it on order :).

    Only difference is small
    Increase in price and lux gets the bucket seats in Alacantra over sports seats in alacantra

    Same colours as far as I’m aware as I asked having seen a navy like colour in brochure but was not available to order or it was the grey which looks a bit blue at times :0

    Just ordered a Leon Cupra 290 Lux DSG. I say just, the process started on the 12th.

    It was an EZ designation so I had no option over seats and have got the micro-suede buckets. I didn't go for the ACC pack (though brochure says it's standard on Lux) and I didn't go for the sunroof. Apart from colours they were the only options offered.

    It's a factory order but a lease and the company didn't know that certain colours had been dropped so I had originally tried to order Mystery Blue.

    Choices were:

    (Metallic)
    Midnight Black
    Magnetic Grey
    Urban Silver
    Nevada White

    (or non-metallic)
    Emocion Red

    I've now gone for Magnetic Grey.

    Finance signed yesterday and I've received confirmation the supplying dealer has accepted the order. I was told on the 12th that it is 12-16 a week wait as there are none in UK stock, out I've a feeling this might be optimistic. Time will tell!

    ACC is NOT standard on the 290 Lux.

    However you benefit from heated Bucket Seats

    Do you have your car?

    The Brochure has been known to be wrong (as May I be) but I’m lead to believe ACC is not standard.

    I’m happy to be proven wrong.

    Hi, is there anything different on the 2020 model. The one I had delivered on 1st March this year got stolen after 8 weeks. I've now ordered a new one last week and it says new 2020 model. Just wondered if there was anything new with it coming to end of model before the new version comes out next year, cheers

    Cheers, sorry I've not ordered the LUX. Just wondered if anything was different to the MY19. Will have to wait and see
