Car of the Year Awards 2023: 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...
Cupra Formentor 1.5 TSI 150 V1
While many coupé SUVs are just about looking suave, the Cupra Formentor sets out to prove that they can do so much more. Sure, it has a stylish design, but it also strikes a good balance between sportiness and practicality. It offers space for five adults in its smart-looking interior, plus a big boot, while also being fun to drive.
With our favourite 1.5 TSI 150 petrol engine, the Formentor has plenty of pace and will put a smile on your face on a twisty road. That tall SUV stance means it’s not as enjoyable to drive as the BMW 4 Series Coupé, but the balance between body control and comfort is about right for a sporty SUV.
Better still, entry-level V1 trim comes with everything you need, including a 12.0in infotainment touchscreen, sat-nav, rear parking sensors, three-zone climate control and adaptive cruise control.
