This is the Cupra Formentor!
It’s the first model to be released by SEAT’s performance division (at least, the first one not based on a standard SEAT!) and Mat’s got his hands on one for a truly in-depth review!
So the Formentor’s a small SUV, and if there’s one thing we’re not short of on our roads these days is small SUVs! So does the Formentor offer enough to stand out from the crowd?
Well when it comes to looks, it certainly does more than enough to stand out from the crowd! With roof spoiler and aggressive front grille, coupled with a sporty sloping roof line, we think it’s one of the best looking small SUVs around! As for performance, well the range-topping Formentor comes with a 2-litre turbo petrol under the bonnet to deliver 310hp!
So, will that be enough? You’ll have to keep watching to find out!

  • I just had a test drive with this one. What a great car. I had a hard time driving back to the dealer. My only thing, I simply do not drive so much lately (we all know why), so is it smart to take a lease when you already have a paid car and so no monthly fees? If I needed to drive on daily basis, I would by it.
