CUPRA Tavascan

Interior Design

Berlin/Martorell, 21 April 2023

The sculptured exterior lines of the CUPRA Tavascan are brought inside the car. A space that mixes material and technological concepts to create a cabin that provides the perfect balance between driver orientation and passenger comfort.

A central spine: The core feature in providing a truly unconventional design is the central spine, a structural central piece that supports the entire interior and helps define the character of all the floating elements.

The interior’s spine unites the console body with the dashboard of the CUPRA Tavascan; a sculptural, structural, architectural feature that provides the feeling of lightness.

Seated for the experience: It’s a feeling expanded as you sit in the driver’s seat behind the CUPRA steering wheel, the first touch points with the all-electric SUV coupe.

The CUPRA Tavascan will be equipped with sporty bucket seats as standard. Later on, CUP Bucket seats will also be available with the new model. The sculptural seating architecture uses a light structure that provides a new concept in seat design without reducing support. The elegance of the seats is enhanced by the choice of colours, Soul Black, Dark Night, or Enceladus Grey Metallic, this last, exclusively designed for the top choice, the CUP bucket seats.

The seats add texture to the interior with a choice of sustainable materials; Textile – with up to 90% recycled polyester – or Microfibre – with up to 50% recycled Microfibre. While 3D parametric mesh enriches the look and feel, while at the same time enhancing the lightweight feeling of the interior.

Digital and tactile design meet: The CUPRA Tavascan uses the perfect combination of the latest technology and groundbreaking style. Its floating 15” central infotainment screen - the largest so far in a CUPRA model - sits as a focus of the CUPRA Tavascan’s digital approach, augmented towards the driver. The CUPRA Tavascan also integrates a newly designed and developed Human Machine Interface (HMI), making the infotainment system even more optimised and intuitive. Slimmer central air vents allow space for it to sit naturally and is aided by the digital cockpit behind the steering wheel.

Lighting plays a significant part in creating the CUPRA Tavascan’s interior mood. LED technology is used throughout the cabin – including front and rear door panels - to add emotional ambient light to emphasise the floating elements of the interior such as the sleek dashboard and the sculptural centre console, without forgetting the functionality and the communication with the occupants.

From the simplicity of the reading lights to the ambient light carefully placed in the cup holders, backlit trim elements such as the door panels – front and rear - and along the sill plate, the illumination is part of the all-electric SUV coupe’s character, creating subtle theatre from inside.

Decorative copper accent elements bring the CUPRA feel to the interior, while the mix of Soul Black with a choice of Deep Plum or Dark Ice Metal colours for the door moulding, central spine and other areas add contrast.

Space, both in the front and rear is optimised to offer perfect comfort, while the smart storage options mean there is space for all of life’s necessities. And the everyday functionality extends to the boot – the electric tailgate can be opened via virtual pedal -, giving 540 litres of room.
