The brand new CUPRA Formentor has been revealed, and is the first model developed exclusively for the CUPRA brand.
The Formentor is named after the wild cape off the
The CUPRA Formentor benefits from a wide colour palette chosen to compliment the design. Four soft metallic paints Urban Silver, Midnight Black, Magnetic Tech and Candy White; three special paints, Graphene Grey, Dark Camoflage and Desire Red; as well as two matte paint options, Petrol Blue Matte and Magnetic Tech Matte.
Unlike traditional SUV’s, this vehicle merges all-terrain attributes yet holds compact and sporty attributes of a hatchback.
Its height (1,511mm) provides excellent headroom for all the passengers onboard, and the wheelbase of 2,680mm offers a significant amount of legroom for those sitting in the rear of the car.
Dynamic proportions are represented by the visual emphasis placed towards the rear of the Formentor, which are further accentuated by the length of the bonnet. Coast-to-coast lighting covers the rear of the car which helps to create a visual width to the vehicle.
19” alloy wheels guide this premium model along the road, and are home to 18” performance Bembro brakes. These wheels are available in a copper finish which really adds to the sporty aesthetic of the CUPRA Formentor.
As you enter the Formentor, the CUPRA logo is projected onto the floor via the puddle lamp. Once inside, occupants will be submersed in high-quality materials, with brushed dark aluminium and copper accents to bring a modern and contemporary feel to the cabin.
Bucket seats, available in both Petrol Blue and Black leather, are mounted low into the cabin to maximise space as much as possible. These seats provide a more ergonomic seating position, and give a sense of the dynamic performance that lies ahead before a wheel has turned.
The centrepiece of the dashboard is home to a 12” touchscreen which provides full functionality and connectivity to all occupants and reduces button count to ensure an uncluttered interior. The driver benefits from a fully-customisable digital cockpit as well as a flat-bottomed steering wheel that houses engine start and CUPRA driving mode buttons, as well as gearbox shift paddles.
The 12” infotainment system integrates both voice and gesture control, keeping your focus on the road ahead. The touchscreen is a portal to the FullLink system, compatible with both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, as well as an option to plug-in your phone via the four USB-C connection points. Bluetooth is also accessible.
Two high-performance powertrains are available on this new model, ready to provide a unique driving experience that matches the sporty interior and exterior.
The ultimate expression of CUPRA’s performance promise is the 2.0 litre TSI turbocharged petrol engine with 4Drive (4WD) technology. Peak power output of 310PS (228kW) and 400Nm of torque with an emotive sound adds to the allure of the vehicle.
Formentor is the next step towards the CUPRA’s electrification plans, providing a high-performance plug-in hybrid available from launch. The 1.4 litre TSI 150PS (110kW) petrol engine is paired to a 115PS (85kW) electric motor, powered by a 13kWh lithium-ion battery pack. This allows the CUPRA Formentor to deliver eco-conscious performance at all times on the road, and delivers a peak power output of 245PS (180kW) and 400Nm of torque with an electric range of 50km (31 miles).
Both engine options hold a seven-speed DSG (direct shift gearbox) dual-clutch transmission. The shift-by-wire technology is designed so that a gear selector is no longer mechanically connected to the gearbox, instead giving electronic signals to indicate a shift. The CUPRA Formentor has your back at all times.
