The entry-level Cupra Formentor looks surprisingly good

What a surprise!

For strategic reasons, the primary aim of entry-level trims is to display an attractive price to the customer. In reality, these models generally have an unattractive presentation to encourage customers to opt for the higher versions that are more expensive and more profitable for manufacturers.

Extremely rarely, this problem does not affect the new model we have chosen today. The Formentor, a sporty SUV from the very young Cupra brand, has a surprisingly successful look for an entry-level model, without exploding its price, which is still reasonable.

First of all, the exterior looks very good with full LED headlights and a radiator grille identical to those of the top-of-the-range versions. On the other hand, we are also surprised by the nicely designed 18-inch wheels. The rear also has the same taillights as the high-end versions. Only the diffuser differs by being smaller with two fake exhaust pipes.

The interior does not disappoint at all and features very attractive leather/fabric seats. Copper inserts are in, as are the large touch screen and the digital instrument cluster. The Formentor offers three-zone automatic climate control, adaptive cruise control with Stop&Go up to 130 mph (210 kph) and keyless go.

Finally, it's only under the bonnet that the basic Cupra Formentor is reasonable. It has a 1.5-litre four-cylinder petrol producing 150 PS and 250 Nm of torque. It is mated to a six-speed manual transmission. The entry-level Cupra Formentor is priced at €31,490 (£27,910/$38,269) in Germany.

  • I’m not surprised this shape of car is popular. It eliminates the disadvantages of the standard hatchback. It gives you a more commanding seating feel, better accommodation and more refinement, whilst still being relatively economical and practical around town Add to that the ability to make a longer trip much more comfortable and it’s clear why this crossover segment is popular, so what better place for Cupra to attract some serious showroom appeal And it’s an attractive package; it looks good in and out, and the basic package is a pretty good family car. Cool name too.

  • Hate to say it, but that is quite a good looking crossover, remove the silly trim around the wheel wells and then lower it a bit, could be a very convincing hatchback...
