CUPRA Formentor, the first and only vehicle developed exclusively by the brand, now with a five-cylinder heart.
The world premiere is on February 22 and coincides with CUPRA’s 3rd anniversary, as an independent brand. CUPRA was never afraid to redefine segments, introduce new ideas and challenge the status quo.
The CUPRA Formentor is a vehicle with various attributes of an SUV. It has a sporty essence of a hatchback, in the form of a coupe. Its design fits perfectly with customers’ current needs, standing out for its range’s strength and characteristics. The new model is designed to push CUPRA to exceed limits as its third-anniversary approaches.
The CUPRA Formentor VZ5 will take advantage of the five-cylinder engine’s power, giving it more remarkable performance, improving the already dynamic and stimulating travel experience, and propelling it to the maximum expression combustion performance, especially for car enthusiasts. The model represents the ultimate transfer of technology between the world of racing and road cars.
The CUPRA Formentor embodies the brand’s essence and a five-cylinder engine to the family – along with seven other powerful engines, including a PHEV performance. It will define it as the actual model for car lovers, something that the CUPRA Tribe is dedicated to delivering and that will allow us to reach new customers,” said Wayne Griffiths, president of CUPRA and SEAT.
With its performance pedigree, we speculate most people will be involved in Formentor’s underpinnings. Two powertrain options are possible, starting with a 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder gasoline mill explaining 306 horsepower (228 kilowatts). A plug-in hybrid model utilises a 1.4-litre turbocharged gas engine with 148 hp (110 kW) than a single 114 hp (85 kW) electric motor.
Combined, the plug-in hybrid offers 241 hp (180 kW) and can progress 31 miles on electric-only strength. Regardless of the mill, the Formentor distributes power to an all-wheel-drive system through a seven-speed DCT.
So, you have to save the date and get ready to hear more about CUPRA Formentor VZ5, the ultimate CUPRA expression, with a beating heart powered by five cylinders. On February 22, CUPRA’s anniversary date, the brand will reveal this unique and limited edition model to the CUPRA Tribe and other great ads.
