The young Spanish brand has announced the premiere of its first own model is a serial embodiment of the concept from Formentor. For new items confirmed a hybrid setup, will the “traditional” version.
From SEAT Cupra sports brand separated in 2018, his first-born was the crossover Ateca – just upgraded SUV’s eponymous parent company. Soon the market will come the second model, but it is an analog of the “Seat”: buyers will be offered a revised hatch and wagon Leon of new generation. The first “stand alone” machine Cupra is the SUV Formentor with kupeobrazny silhouette in concept it showed last year, the production version will debut at the Geneva motor show, which opens next week. Before the premiere of commodity mark cross has published its teaser.
Judging by the picture, conveyor Formentor kept the design from the prototype, we also show previously published spy photos of test samples. At the core of the SUV, obviously, is based on the platform MQB. The dimensions of the concept has not been named, are not disclosed until the size and the serial SUV. Foreign media believe that the Formentor bigger Cupra Ateca. The length of the latter model are equal 4376 mm, wheelbase is 2631 mm.
The prototype was a hybrid rechargeable, this version was confirmed for the commodity Cupra Formentor, but as yet no details. It is assumed that the serial crossover is the same platform as SEAT Leon/Leon Cupra, Volkswagen Golf and Skoda Octavia: it includes petrol “turboservice” 1.4 TSI built in to the DSG six-speed transmission an electric motor and a battery capacity of 13 kWh. At the same Formentor is likely to get a top of the 245-strong version (Leon Cupra eHybrid have only this option, whereas the rest of the family, including the Seat Leon, there is still a 204-strong option).
“Traditional” Cupra Formentor is also sure to be, but as expected, only with a petrol engine 2.0 TSI (Cupra Leon on it produces 245, 300 or 310 HP) – diesel he will not get (have a Leon Cupra motor on “heavy” fuel as well, in contrast to the SEAT Leon). Plus trade SUVs need to get an electronically adaptive dampers and four-wheel drive.
The European market Formentor Cupra will be released before the end of this year. Then in the range of the young brand will probably be an electric SUV, created on motives of concept Tavascan.
