The first original CUPRA model is already in our country. The CUPRA Formentor It is the first vehicle developed exclusively for the sports firm, without a version with SEAT emblems. It comes with an athletic silhouette in an SUV format, with the brand’s own flavor of exclusivity and high performance. Here we tell you its characteristics and price in Mexico.
Although the Formentor was born as CUPRA, SEAT’s DNA is undeniable, especially in the main design features. We found many similar elements to the Leon, such as the shape of the headlights and the LED lighting across the width of the rear. Of course, the CUPRA hallmark is reflected in contrasting copper-colored details, large air intakes and a colorful diffuser.
We could say that the Formentor is the SUV version of the CUPRA León, as the Ateca was at the time with the León CUPRA. Proof of this is the minimalist interior design, to which the Spanish firm considerably reduced the number of buttons to concentrate its controls on the infotainment system.
The CUPRA Formentor has a digital instrument cluster as well as a 12 “center screen with the new interface of the brand, with voice controls that are activated when you say “hello, hello” and wireless compatibility with Apple CarPlay and (by cable) with Android Auto.
In order to Mexico, the rest of equipment includes panoramic roof, smart key, three-zone automatic climate control, ambient lighting, six-speaker Beats sound system, wireless phone charger, 10 airbags and multiple driver assistance. Arrives in our country with a safe exit assistant (warns if an object is approaching when opening the doors), blind spot monitor and cross traffic alert.
From its wide range of engines available in Europe, Mexico receives the most powerful option: a four-cylinder turbo engine and 2.0 liters, which develops 310 hp y 295 lb-pie. Power is distributed to all four wheels via an all-wheel drive system and a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. CUPRA speaks of a 0 to 100 km / h in 4.9 seconds and a top speed of 250 km / h.
The CUPRA Formentor is now available in Mexico, with a price of 855,900 pesos for its only version – it includes 4 years of maintenance. Matte paintings have an additional cost of 40,000 pesos. Like CUPRA Ateca, Formentor practically plays alone within its category; there is no other high-performance SUV outside the premium universe with similar characteristics.
