Review

Having driven the most powerful version, we can say that the Formentor offers the firepower and handling prowess to keep pace with its sports SUV rivals, and also offers decent practicality and a nicer interior for the money. In fact, it looks like a strong challenger for class honours and with cheaper models to follow, including a plug-in hybrid, there’s the potential to be a Formentor for everyone.

Details of this trim level have yet to be confirmed

It wakes up at 2000rpm and then romps away to its 6500rpm red line. If you use the launch control system to maximise the car’s four-wheel-drive traction, Cupra says it’ll ping you from rest to 62mph in 4.9sec – give or take, the same as the BMW X2 M35i and Volkswagen T-Roc R.
