The new coupe-shaped crossover Cupra Formentor was the first model of the brand, separated from the Spanish company Seat a year ago. While the manufacturer is ready to present a pre-production version of the novelty – it is for her that they will arrange a test drive on the picturesque roads of Majorca.

Seat sent a pre-production version of its new Formentor cross-coupe to Majorca – here this SUV is waiting for the first photo session on real roads. With a choice of a place for the first “road” debut of the novelty, everything is unequivocal: at the northern tip of the island there is one of the most popular tourist destination with a natural landmark – Formentor Cape, after which the new Cupra crossover was named. Sales of new items, as previously reported, should start next year.

The Cupra Formentor gets the same architecture as the Seat Ateca crossover, but the dimensions of these two models are different – the Formentor is wider and lower.

Technical characteristics of the car are kept in the strictest confidence, but autoexperts will not be surprised if they see a hybrid under the hood of the crossover, whose total power will be 245 horsepower. On one charge, an electric motor that is part of such a power plant can travel up to 50 kilometers.

The exterior of the new product looks dynamic and stylish. The front of the crossover brings back memories of the new Seat Leon, although there are some very original solutions. This, for example, new bumpers and a hexagonal grille with a spectacular pattern. Athletic vyshtampovki, daring optics on LEDs, a catchy rear diffuser – all this gives the car a share of sportiness. The color scheme is dominated by dark blue with bronze and aluminum.
