Need help buying your next car? Click and my team and I will help you choose your ideal car at a fair price - from Mat Watson!
This is the Cupra Formentor!
It’s the first model to be released by SEAT’s performance division (at least, the first one not based on a standard SEAT!) and Mat’s got his hands on one for a truly in-depth review!
So the Formentor’s a small SUV, and if there’s one thing we’re not short of on our roads these days is small SUVs! So does the Formentor offer enough to stand out from the crowd?
Well when it comes to looks, it certainly does more than enough to stand out from the crowd! With roof spoiler and aggressive front grille, coupled with a sporty sloping roof line, we think it’s one of the best looking small SUVs around! As for performance, well the range-topping Formentor comes with a 2-litre turbo petrol under the bonnet to deliver 310hp!
So, will that be enough? You’ll have to keep watching to find out!

  • Matt I thought you said there was no split loading seats?!

  • Good car love mine but I wish they sort out the problems. Buyers beware!! The formentor has been plagued with infotainment software glitches and problems. The worst and most dangerous problem is the Adaptive cruise control that thinks it a left and drive car, with many owner reporting this dangerous problem.😡😡.

  • I just had a test drive with this one. What a great car. I had a hard time driving back to the dealer. My only thing, I simply do not drive so much lately (we all know why), so is it smart to take a lease when you already have a paid car and so no monthly fees? If I needed to drive on daily basis, I would by it.

  • I saw this car a few days ago for the first time in my life. I see it everyday I go to work. I thought this has to be some kind of sport crossover with such agressive look, plus pretty rare because of another country licence plates. Had no idea this is Volkswagen.
