The Spanish brand Cupra introduced the Formentor serial crossover with a 310-horsepower engine and all-wheel drive

The Spanish brand Cupra, which was previously a division of Seat, introduced its first fully independent model. She became a sports crossover Formentor with a 310-horsepower engine.

The production car turned out to be similar to the prototype of the same name, shown last year at the Geneva Motor Show. The length of the crossover, built on the MQB modular platform, was 4450 mm, width – 1511 mm, and height – 2680 mm. The size of the wheelbase is 2680 millimeters.

The crossover will be available with both a standard engine and a hybrid powerplant. The latter was created on the basis of a 1.4-liter turbo engine with a capacity of 150 hp, which works together with a 115-horsepower electric motor. The engine is powered by 13 kWh batteries that allow you to drive up to 50 kilometers without recharging.

As for the version with the classic internal combustion engine, we are talking about a two-liter “turbo four” developing 310 hp and 400 Nm of torque, which works together with a robotic gearbox and all-wheel drive. The new generation Leon Sportswagjn station wagon is also equipped with the same engine.

Cupra Formentor will be available with a 12-inch touchscreen multimedia display, a smart LED interior lighting system, a fully digital dashboard, and a number of electronic assistants, including adaptive cruise control and blind spot monitoring system.
