What Car? says...
The Cupra Born is an electric car that takes its name from the El Born district of Barcelona, but is arguably more closely linked to Wolfsburg.
That’s because under the metal, the Born is essentially identical to the VW ID 3. Like the ID 3, it's a five-door, five-seat electric hatchback, and is available with two different battery sizes promising impressive pure-electric ranges.
Born buyers can choose from two battery sizes, with the smallest delivering a 233-mile range (in official Government tests) and the largest 343 miles. These figures are within a few miles of equivalent versions of the VW ID 3.
The 58kWh version of the Born strikes the best balance between price and capability. We’d go for V1 trim, which comes with plenty of kit and keeps the price palatable.
The Born’s boot has an official capacity of 385 litres, which is in line with the sort of space you get in petrol and diesel family hatchbacks. That’s reflected in its real-world carrying capacity: we managed to fit in six carry-on suitcases into the boot of both the Born and the conventionally powered Cupra Leon.
