2020 Cupra Formentor unveiled for lucky Europe

Cupra, the performance division of Spanish marque SEAT – a brand not seen in Australia for decades – has revealed its 2020 Formentor crossover coupe-style SUV. The Formentor marks the first exclusive model under the Cupra banner. As with the wider Seat and Cupra lines, it won't be offered in Australia. Available with a full-petrol or high performance plug-in hybrid powertrain, the Formentor looks to blend the practicality of an SUV with the performance Cupra is known for.

Cupra Tavascan concept revealed

The Cupra Tavascan concept has been revealed ahead of its world debut at this year’s Frankfurt motor show. It’s the latest concept based on the Volkswagen Group’s MEB platform, which will underpin a fleet of electric vehicles including the upcoming Volkswagen ID.3 hatchback. The Tavascan concept uses two electric motors – one each on the front and rear axles – that produce a combined output of 225kW, enough to make the crossover reach 100km/h in less than 6.5 seconds.

Cupra teases first all-electric model

Cupra is preparing to reveal the A-SUVe, a concept previewing its first pure-electric model, at the 2019 Frankfurt motor show. The sub-brand of Seat is promising the production A-SUVe will be the "first road Cupra to use a 100 per cent electric powertrain" when it launches. Although it's an SUV, the plug-in crossover will launch with a style-focused sloping roofline. The teaser doesn't give much away, but the car's profile clearly shares plenty with the BMW X4 or Mercedes GLC Coupe.

Cupra: Seat sub-brand launches hot Ateca, Leon TCR

Seat has officially launched the Cupra sub-brand, announcing its arrival with hotted-up take on the Ateca. As you'd expect of a fast, semi-compact Volkswagen Group product, power comes from a 221kW 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine. Cupra says special tuning has made it sound better than in some other iterations, while a new Otto Particulate Filter System helps it meet ever-tightening European emissions standards.
