Overview of the Cupra Formentor


Underneath the bonnet of the contract hire Cupra Formentor is a 2.0-litre petrol engine producing 306bhp. The power sees this stylish SUV sprint from 0 to 62 mph in less than five seconds.

There's also a Formentor plug-in hybrid model with a 1.4-litre petrol engine, and an all-electric model is planned. The fuel consumption is around 33mpg for the petrol-powered model, while the plug-in hybrid should return around 188mpg and the ability to deliver 30 miles of battery-powered range.


Behind the wheel, the Cupra Formentor car lease is a fun to drive SUV. The all-wheel drive system delivers plenty of grip, while the suspension reduces body roll. Around town, the Formentor is a nimble car to drive and this is a smooth motorway cruiser.

It's also a practical family choice; the interior has been well-designed with good use of premium materials but there are some hard-wearing plastics for tough use.

As is the Cupra style, there is a lot of copper detailing around the dashboard and steering wheel, and for the leather upholstery. The boot is a practical 420 litres, and there's plenty of space in the rear seats for tall passengers.

The petrol engine is a potent performer but the plug-in hybrid Formentor is also a worthy contender for those wanting a fast and sleek family SUV. This is also a sound choice for business users with a low Benefit-in-Kind (BiK) rate.

There are several driving modes to choose from with the Cupra mode delivering great fun: the response is sharper, the steering becomes sportier and the engine noise is also tweaked.

A 12-inch touchscreen dominates the dashboard to help give a minimalist look. There are not many buttons to speak of with the touchscreen being intuitive and meeting most needs. The Formentor car lease also has a digital cockpit, ambient lighting, a powered tailgate and parking assistance with a reversing camera proving useful.

While the safety is still to be tested by Euro NCAP, the SUV uses a lot of parts from the VW group and is likely to be awarded the full five stars. Safety features include pedestrian detection and automatic emergency braking.

Essentially, as a car lease choice, the Cupra Formentor offers strong engines, great interior styling and fun behind the wheel. This is a quality SUV offering and is a contract hire choice to consider.


Why not have a look at the Formentor on the official Cupra company website? Or why not look at some of these similar car lease deals from First Vehicle Leasing: the Audi Q3 and the Volvo XC40.
