What is it?



This is it, this is the first all CUPRA model produced by SEAT’s sub-brand. A cross between a traditional hatchback and an SUV results in the CUV, or Crossover Utility Vehicle category. A category that is expected to continue grow over the coming years. CUPRA call this a Coupe Crossover.



We’ve driven it for the first time, and in the UK on a day visit to SEAT/CUPRA HQ alongside the new CUPRA Leon (review to follow). Due to COVID we’re behind the other reviewers in Spain and SEAT/CUPRA have kindly managed to get this left-hand drive model over to the UK for us to drive, for the moment the only production version Formentor in the country.
