Car of the Year Awards 2022: Best coupé SUV

A good coupé isn’t just about style. The trick if it’s to be among the class leaders is that it must feel on point whether you’re enjoying a great road or enduring a terrible commute...

Best coupé SUV

Cupra Formentor 1.5 TSI 150 V1

Car of the Year 2022 - MotorEasy

Not everyone with sporty sensibilities can avoid journeys that demand four doors, adult-friendly back seats and a big boot. That’s where the combination of style, performance and practicality that coupé SUVs offer comes in – and the Cupra Formentor is our favourite.

In entry-level 1.5 TSI 150 petrol form, it delivers a better combination of pace and handling than the Toyota C-HR, for example, while treating your passengers to a more comfortable ride than the BMW X2. Boot space beats that of the C-HR too, and you can fold down the rear seats in a 60/40 split or slide long objects through the ski hatch while carrying passengers.

The cheapest V1 trim is impressively well kitted out, and automatic emergency braking is included in the safety kit list. Finally, the Formentor gives you a lower, sportier driving position than many SUVs to match the swooping roofline.
