CUPRA Formentor is the first model that has been developed exclusively for the CUPRA brand. It makes its debut with a high-performance plug-in hybrid CUV. It is 4.45 metres long by 1.84 metres wide and 1.51 metres high. This high-performance coupe crossover boasts sophistication, innovation and a dynamic driving experience.
“The Formentor is the first model designed exclusively for CUPRA; it is the next big step in extending the CUPRA portfolio and marks a new phase in the development of the brand and is a door opener to a new customer market”, said Antonino Labate, Director of Strategy, Business Development and Operations at CUPRA.
The front end is clearly defined by the angular LED headlights, to which additional round lights are added just below. The new model has a robust bumper with air intakes that define the vehicles sporty character. When looking at the rear end, the lights are once again a prominent feature. The coast-to-coast light that connects the tail lights stands out to reveal its strong stance.
Lighting is one of the highlights of the new model, and not only on the outside, as new functions have been implemented on the inside as well, such as welcome and safety lights that will alert the driver in certain circumstances. In the rear exterior design, the addition of an integrated diffuser with four exhaust pipes emphasises this sportiness.
At ground level the 19” alloy wheels with copper details and 18” Brembo brakes with matching copper finish come as standard. “It’s incredibly agile for a car of its size. A lot of work has been done on programming all the vehicle’s electronics, including the driving aids, with a result that enhances the sportiness which was always the aim in the first place”, explains Jordi Gené, CUPRA’s test development driver.
