CUPRA have already revealed the Formentor will be available with 7 engine options at a recent media event as well as revealing they are hoping to bring a more powerful version out at some point.
We had assumed this would simply be an ABT mapped version of the existing 2.0 TFSI engine, but if you listen carefully to this video you can hear something a bit more beastly is under the bonnet.
If this makes it into production will it be a special edition, will it be the CUPRA Formentor R?
Check out the exhaust setup on the white car which is the (presumably 400HP test mule)
We’ll be publishing the full pricing of the new CUPRA Formentor range at 10am on the 20th October. You might be pleasantly surprised.
For now, let us know what you think about this engine potentially coming to the Formentor in the comments below.
