CUPRA Formentor

Exterior design

Martorell, 06 October 2020

The CUPRA Formentor production car remains true to the concept presented in Geneva Motorshow 2019. Now and then, the CUPRA Formentor is full of character, sculpted to emphasise its varied attributes, mixing sophistication and exuding emotion.

The dynamic proportions of the CUPRA Formentor are heightened by the visual emphasis placed towards the rear of the vehicle which accentuates the length of the bonnet.

The appearance of these proportions was a purposeful move by the design team to give the CUPRA Formentor an even greater feeling of performance and style. And the side profile of the high-performance crossover coupe alludes to the power found under the bonnet and the overall dynamism of the vehicle.

The body tone is reminiscent of a robust all-terrain vehicle, but the CUPRA Formentor uses this design technique to lighten the vehicle’s silhouette, giving it a more svelte appearance, one that reflects the performance it delivers. This attribute is continued thanks to its compact and sporty aesthetics, closer to that of a hatchback, but in a coupe crossover, and its merging of all-terrain attributes expected from a traditional SUV.

The front of the CUPRA Formentor is strong and determined, but elegant and refined with the large front grille home to the famous CUPRA copper badge and book marked by the full LED front headlights that use the signature design. Fog lamps sit separately below.

Below the headlights are two air intakes that not only emphasise the vehicle’s face but also direct air through the vehicle and help not only air flow but also performance, cooling the brakes when driving becomes more adventurous.

Over the bonnet, sculpted lines draw emphasis both down to the CUPRA badge on the grille, but also help the eye sweep backwards towards the A-pillar and beyond.

The elegant yet strong design continues at the rear with the integration of rear dynamic blinkers as well as a rear coast-to-coast light with a welcome ceremony that creates a visual width to the vehicle and gives not only a now signature look, but also helps the vehicle standout. “Formentor” name is also mentioned in the rear light. Those approaching from behind quickly understand the CUPRA Formentor is a performance vehicle, helped too by the quad exhaust system (CUPRA Formentor VZ 2.0 TSI 310PS).

The bold design is enhanced by the vehicles’ specific bumper, rear spoiler, rear diffuser and exclusive 19” alloy wheels that frame its 18” copper Brembo brakes.

The CUPRA Formentor benefits from a wide colour palette chosen to complement the design, including exclusive matt paint options (Petrol Blue Matt and Magnetic Tech Matt) that bring an additional visual elegance and personality to the vehicle. The colour palette is complemented by four soft metallic paints (Urban Silver, Midnight Black, Magnetic Tech and Candy White) and three special paints (Graphene Grey, Dark Camouflage and Desire Red).

Thanks to its dimensions, the CUPRA Formentor is ready to meet the needs of today’s customers. At 4,450mm long and 1,839mm wide and with a height of 1,511mm it provides excellent headroom for all the passengers while the wheelbase of 2,680mm offers significant legroom for rear occupants and a boot capacity of up to 450 litres (420l for the 4Drive version and 345l for plug-in hybrid versions) – making it a practical option too.
