The New CUPRA Formentor is a high-performance coupe crossover that captures the spirit of the CUPRA DNA with sophistication, innovation and a dynamic driving experience. The CUPRA Formentor combines the benefits of a performance car with the qualities of an SUV.
With captivating design and high-performance powertrains, including a plug-in hybrid, the CUPRA Formentor will be a big step for CUPRA. It will clearly show the potential of the brand,” said CUPRA CEO Wayne Griffiths.
The CUPRA Formentor is an appealing car in terms of performance, technology and aesthetics, based on the beauty of its proportions, the strength of its line and the refinement of its details. The two-tone body is reminiscent of a robust all-terrain vehicle, but the CUPRA Formentor’s design uses the aesthetic technique to lighten the vehicle’s silhouette. Unlike a traditional SUV, the vehicle merges all-terrain attributes with the compact and sporty aesthetics of a hatchback, in coupe crossover form. The dimensions of the car allow Formentor to meet the needs of today’s customers. The CUPRA Formentor is 4,450mm long and 1,839mm wide. Its height of 1,511mm provides excellent headroom for all the passengers while the wheelbase of 2,680mm offers significant legroom for rear occupants and a boot capacity of 450 litres.
The dynamic proportions of Formentor is represented by the visual emphasis placed towards the rear of the vehicle which is further accentuated by the length of the bonnet. This seamless design continues at the rear with the integration a coast-to-coast light that creates a visual width to the vehicle. The sporty aesthetic is completed with standard 19-inch alloy wheels – available in Copper finish – which house 18-inch performance Brembo brakes.
CUPRA Formentor benefits from a wide colour selection which has been chosen to complement the design: there are four soft metallic paints (Urban Silver, Midnight Black, Magnetic Tech and Candy White); three special paints (Graphene Grey, Dark Camouflage and Desire Red) as well as two matte paint options (Petrol Blue Matte and Magnetic Tech Matte).
The CUPRA Formentor’s exterior design is perfectly matched by its high-quality interior that provides a sense of modernity and sportiness that would be expected of a CUPRA model.
As drivers enter Formentor, the CUPRA logo is projected on to the floor via the puddle lamp. Once inside, they will be immersed by high-quality materials, with brushed dark aluminium and copper accents making the cabin feel modern and contemporary.The bucket seats which are available in both Petrol Blue and Black leather, are mounted low in the cabin to maximise space, allow a more ergonomic seating position, and give a sense of the dynamic performance before a wheel has turned.The new design of the dashboard stands out with a 12-inch touchscreen that provides the functionality and connectivity to all passengers and reduces button count.
The driver benefits from a fully-customisable digital binnacle (Digital Cockpit) as well as a flat-bottomed steering wheel that houses the engine start and CUPRA driving mode buttons, as well as gearbox shift paddles. The CUPRA Formentor will integrate the most advanced infotainment and connectivity solutions, bringing customers’ digital lives with them into the vehicle and offering a more intuitive experience behind the wheel.The 12-inch infotainment system, which reduces the number of hard buttons to a minimum, integrates both voice and gesture control. The touchscreen is a portal to the Full Link system which is compatible with both Apple CarPlay (wireless) and Android Auto (wired). Passengers can plug their phone into the vehicle via the four USB-C connection points or connect using Bluetooth to access their eco-system of apps.
The CUPRA Formentor will be available with two high-performance powertrains ready to provide a unique driving experience that matches the sporty design.The ultimate expression of CUPRA’s performance promise will be the 2.0-litre TSI turbocharged petrol engine with 4Drive (4WD) technology. The pulse-raising engine provides peak power output of 310PS (228kW) and 400Nm of torque with an emotive sound that adds to the allure of the vehicle. The 4Drive system constantly monitors numerous sources – steering angle, wheel speed and yaw of the vehicle – to deliver power to the correct wheel at the precise time, giving a sense of confidence behind the wheel in any driving scenario. The CUPRA Formentor is also the next step in the brand’s electrification offensive, with 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, which allows the CUPRA Formentor to deliver eco-conscious performance. The e-Hybrid delivers a total peak power of 245PS (180kW) of peak power and 400Nm of torque with an electric range of 50km (31 miles).
