- Formentor is inaugural winner of new category at Carbuyer of the Year Awards
The CUPRA Formentor has been crowned the hottest SUV on the market at the Carbuyer Car of the Year Awards 2022.
The Best Hot SUV category is new to this year’s awards and saw the top performance SUVs pitted against each other. The Formentor’s spacious and comfortable interior, combined with its speed and agility, led it to victory over some tough competition.
To determine the winner of the category, each car was put through a series of tests focusing on several vehicle aspects, including practicality, comfort, and technology, to determine which car is worthy of the title.
Commenting on the win, Richard Ingram, Editor of Carbuyer.co.uk, said:
"The first winner of a new category for 2022, the CUPRA Formentor is our Best Hot SUV.
It’s a fantastic all-rounder, with good looks, punchy engines, and – most importantly in this area of the market – an engaging drive. In spite of some compelling competition, the CUPRA comes out on top.”
The CUPRA Formentor is available with one of seven different powertrains, ranging from the 1.5 TSI EVO 150PS, through to the 2.0 TSI 4Drive DSG-auto 310PS. It is also available as a 1.4 e-HYBRID (either 204PS or 245PS) that comes with a 6-speed automatic gearbox.
Across all powertrains and trim levels, the Formentor marries performance with comfort, not least due to Nappa leather bucket seats (V2, VZ2 and VZ3 trim), a 12-inch infotainment system and a fully digital cockpit.
