Don’t worry, we are with you. In Diariomotor, in general, we are not lovers of SUVs. Perhaps we are too much petrolheads, but we see in SUVs less dynamic and efficient vehicles than their traditional counterparts, as well as more expensive. Nevertheless, SUVs are the best-selling cars in Spain and Europe, and we are not the only ones who make the purchase decision in the family. If an SUV is going to enter your home, you should know that for 32,700 euros you can take it home the perfect SUV for those who hate SUVs.
I am talking about the CUPRA Formentor. It is an SUV produced in Spain on the MQB platform of the Volkswagen Group. A vehicle without a counterpart in SEAT, and of course, with a much more striking appearance than the veteran SEAT Ateca. Compared to this SUV with a more traditional profile, the CUPRA Formentor hardly loses load capacity or interior habitability, and in return, it presents a much more technological cabin, the same exciting dynamics and a wider range of engines in which there are also various plug-in hybrids.
The interior quality of the CUPRA Formentor is at a high level. It is a vehicle that aspires to be considered premium.
We consider it to be one of the most recommended purchases in the segment if you value driving dynamics. not only have one of the most agile behaviors in the segment, if not that its driving position is slightly higher than that of a conventional tourism. It is a horse carriage between the world that you did not want to leave and the world that you have to live. The access version mounts a 1.5 TSI petrol engine and 150 hp, associated with a six-speed manual gearbox. It homologates an average consumption of the most reasonable, of a correct 6.4 l/100 km.
In return, it does the 0 to 100 km/h in less than 9 seconds and exceeds 200 km/h. As standard, it has extensive equipment that includes digital instrumentation, a infotainment system with 10-inch screen (compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto), three-zone climate control, adaptive cruise control, parking sensors or 18-inch wheels. This version is currently for sale for 32,700 eurosa price on sale that has barely increased by 300 euros since last April.
One drawback: this version does not have hybridization and therefore does not have an ECO label from the DGT.
The price includes discounts and commercial contributions of the brand, but the CUPRA website does not detail whether vehicle financing is necessary. Be that as it may, it should be discussed in person at a brand award. In short, a 150 hp CUPRA Formentor 1.5 TSI for 32,700 euros is a purchase to be taken into account.
