Cupra Formentor at the heart of Audi – Companies

Cupra Formentor at the heart of Audi – Companies


Cupra is the sister brand of Seat, which wants to be more chic and sporty. But more expensive, too. So more profit for the parent company, the Volkswagen group, which is therefore looking carefully at this new brand. To the point of giving the Formentor SUV the gift of an Audi engine.

And not just any engine: the 2.5 turbo from the Audi RS 3/RS Q3, the latest five-cylinder unit on the market! A very special heart, whose unusual rhythms produce a special sound. But, the leadership of the group requires, the engine here has changed a little, showing 390 hp against 400 for the Audi. This loss of a few livestock is not felt in the wheel, where nothing is missing, neither under the feet nor in the ears. This devil of a mill sings its joy through a valve-controlled exhaust and thrusting hard into the red zone, set at 7,000 rpm.

The dual-clutch DSG gearbox and seven gears keep the pace smooth and the rider through all four wheels, with the added bonus of mode. drifting which favors the outside rear wheel during cornering to allow fewer free figures on slippery surfaces. But it is above all for its pure efficiency that we appreciate this VZ5. It holds the bends very quickly and without splitting, regardless of the level of surface moisture.

And this turbulent SUV has few competitors: in fact we point to the Audi RS Q3, its blood brother, or the Mercedes-AMG GLA S 45 (421 hp), or even the more expensive Porsche Macan V6 S (381 hp) or GTS (441 hp). This Formentor has nothing to envy, except that he has a common surname. And he has for him the argument of exclusivity since its total production will be limited to 7,000 units. It also doesn’t offer the gift and looks at the price of its Audi cousin, and the brand image is however much better established. In the heart of Audi, nothing is impossible, it seems to say Cupra, who already believes in it …
