The Cupra Formentor is slightly more expensive and a bit less practical than the Seat Ateca it's based on. In exchange, it offers sharp coupé SUV looks and a smarter interior. It'll still seat four tall adults and has a decent boot, so it's not impractical, it handles well and, if you stick with our favourite 1.5 TSI V1 version, it's hardly expensive and yet very well equipped.
The trimSee full equipment
VZ1 is based on the V1 trim but it's what you get when you pick one of the more powerful engines. Over the V1 trim, it brings 19in alloy wheels, a rear-view camera, front parking sensors, adaptive dampers, a powered tailgate with gesture control, a blind spot monitoring system and sports front seats.

Despite producing 242bhp, this plug-in hybrid feels brisk rather than thrillingly quick (0-62mph takes 7.8sec). However, it has the potential to save you a lot of money in fuel if you do mostly short journeys and are able to keep the battery charged, because officially it can travel for up to 34 miles on battery power alone (on our real-world test route we covered 25 miles on a single charge before the petrol engine kicked in). The maximum charging rate is 3.7kW so it takes 3.5 hours to charge from 0-100%.
