The sports sub-brand Cupra, owned by the Spanish brand Seat, received its first stand-alone model. It was the Formentor crossover, named after a cape on the island of Mallorca.
The production version of CuprFormentor differs from last year's prototype by a simplified diffuser in the rear bumper and a modified filling of the LED lights. In terms of dimensions, the model is comparable to the Volkswagen Tiguan, with which it shares the modular MQB platform.
- The interior and technical part of the Formentor echoes the CuprLeon family, which debuted in February. The most powerful version of the crossover is equipped with a two-liter petrol "turbo four" with a capacity of 310 hp. (400 Nm), a seven-speed "robot" with two clutches and four-wheel drive.
- CuprFormentor will also be offered in a hybrid version with a 1.4-liter petrol turbo engine, a 115-horsepower electric motor integrated into a six-speed "robot" with two clutches, and a 13 kWh battery that provides a 50-kilometer range on electric only. The total output is 245 hp. and 400 Nm of torque. The dynamic characteristics of the model will be revealed later.
CuprFormentor will begin shipping in Europe in the fourth quarter of 2020.
