The modelRead full Cupra Formentor review
The 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 well priced and well equipped.

This range-topping trim is available only with the fastest 2.0 TSI 310 engine and adds fancier 19in wheels and bigger Brembo brakes.

The flagship Formentor engine has 306bhp and feels properly rapid when it comes on song from 2000rpm. Indeed, if you use launch control to maximise this model’s four-wheel-drive traction, it will ping you from rest to 62mph in 4.9sec – about the same time, give or take, as the BMW X2 M35i and Volkswagen T-Roc R.
