‘Not a Seat. Not now, not ever. The Formentor will only ever be badged as a CUPRA, SEAT’s sporty and electrified off-shoot marque. So, if you thought all CUPRAs were just rebadged SEATs, this hunkered-coupe-SUV just trampled all over your argument.’
‘Inside, there are bespoke CUPRA elements, with the bronzed highlights and that Transformer-like logo meaning you won’t mistake it for anything else.’
‘The first was the CUPRA Ateca, which is still on sale, by the way, and a damn fine car. But it doesn’t look that special next to a regular SEAT Ateca. That's where the Formentor comes in: it's muscular, chiselled and exciting.’
‘There’s an awful lot to like about the CUPRA Formentor. As a bespoke performance SUV it looks fantastic, and it will delight most owners with the way it drives – it’s fast, fun and secure – while offering a decent dose of practicality, too.’
‘The Formentor looks sportier, in keeping with the CUPRA brand. It sits slightly lower than normal, with an aggressive front bumper, a wider track, chunkier wheel arches, a large rear wing and a sloping roofline.'
