CUPRA has unveiled the Formentor, the first model developed from the ground up by the brand.
The high-performance crossover combines the specific DNA of the brand and is designed and engineered for the future, offering an iconic model that mixes sophistication, innovation and an intuitive and dynamic driving experience.
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.
CUPRA Formentor is powered by a 2.0 l TSI Turbocharged petrol unit with a total output of 310PS (228kW) and 400Nm of torque. This engine will be linked to the 4Drive technology that constantly tracks the vehicle and driver inputs to deliver power to the correct wheel at the precise time it needs it. Optional hybrid power plant is a 1.4-litre TSI 150PS (110kW) petrol engine, combined with the 115 PS (85kW) electric motor with 13kWh lithium-ion battery pack with a total output of 245PS (180kW) of peak power and 400Nm of torque and with and electric only range of around 50km.
Both powertrain combinations benefit from a DSG dual-clutch transmission, that helps make gear changes sharper and smoother. The shift-by-wire technology is designed so that the gear selector is not connected to the gearbox mechanically, instead using electronic signals to make shifts.
Formentor features 12” infotainment system combines the Full Link system compatible with both Apple CarPlay (wireless) and Android Auto. Safety features include Predictive Adaptive Cruise Control, Emergency Assist, Travel Assist, Side and Exit Assist.
