The CUPRA Formentor is named after cape Formentor on the Spanish island of Mallorca, one of the most beautiful and wild areas in the Balearics, and it’s those attributes that lend themselves to the high-performance crossover’s character and personality.
The CUPRA Formentor will be available with a wide range of seven powertrains, including two high-performance plug-in hybrid version.
At the top of the range and available from the launch, is a 310PS petrol unit that offers the ultimate expression of the CUPRA brand’s DNA, with an emotional sound that adds to the allure of the vehicle.
The CUPRA Formentor also looks to the future, revving up the shift to electrification by integrating two high-performance plug-in hybrid technology too, harnessing the power of combustion and electricity with an output of 245PS or 204PS. Offering the performance CUPRA customers expect, but more in tune with a world focused on minimising its environmental impact.
And with an advanced, tuneable chassis, progressive steering and DSG transmission technology, no matter which powertrain customers chose, the core elements of dynamism, emotionality and performance are evident.
The advanced technologies are shrouded by an exterior design that combines the benefits of a hatchback with the qualities of an SUV; bringing together the all-terrain attributes of a SUV and the compactness and sportiness of a hatchback in a coupé form-factor.
The CUPRA Formentor sits closer to the ground highlighting its sportiness, with emphasis placed towards the rear of the vehicle while at the same time accentuating the length of the bonnet, underscoring its dynamic proportions.
Inside the CUPRA Formentor’s cabin provides a sense of modernity and sportiness with a unique take on the feel of the CUPRA brand.
From the moment the door is opened, and the CUPRA logo is projected onto the ground, to the CUPRA steering wheel and the leather sports bucket seats, occupants are cocooned in a high-end interior that wraps around the driver and their passengers.
And it’s from the inside that the digital possibilities become apparent.
