Formentor stays close to the study
The crossover stays low
Although the Formentor is a crossover, the dimensions remain quite sporty. Since the Formentor should be moved in everyday life, the trunk volume also plays a role. Here Cupra specifies a volume of at least 450 liters with the rear seat bench upright. If you fold it down, it will be 1475 liters. The Dimensions at a glance:
● length: 4450 mm
● width: 1839 mm
● height: 1511 mm
● wheelbase: 2679 mm
● Trunk: 450 l / 1475 l
● Trailer load: 1500 kg / 80 kg drawbar load

Great driving dynamics, but a tendency to understeer
The chairs don’t offer a lot of lateral support, but they are very comfortable. However, the Cupra displeases its sitting position too high. Yes, we know: this is an SUV, that’s how it should be. But we also know that this does not have to be the case with a sports SUV. And the sporty Brembo system (2262 euros surcharge) unfortunately does not attract attention. After three fast laps, the Italian stoppers gave smoke signals despite the cooling lap. The embossed Audi logo on the wheel hub proves that the brake is also part of the corporate shelf. One or two Audi test cars also had their thermal problems when decelerating.
On the fast lap, the Cupra also shows us one unsightly tendency to understeer. This is due to the idea of safety, because it is easier to control, but it is less fun than a rear that is easy to steer. Finally: Of course, such a Formentor VZ will rarely be found on the racetrack. But what applies here also applies on the country road.
Formentor available in nine colors
Even in the base, the Formentor is by no means poorly equipped. For sporty cornering behavior Dampers adjustable via DCC and a Progressive steering to care. In addition to classic navigation, infotainment also offers the option of wirelessly connecting telephones via Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. In addition to touch, infotainment can also be controlled using voice and gestures. Buyers have ample freedom of choice when it comes to the color design of the Formentor. Nine paint jobs are available for the crossover, including two matt colors.
