2020 Cupra Formentor
|A four cylinder with four tailpipes is a show-off, or?|
We start this time with the pictures of the luggage compartment, because through the windscreen at the very back you can see the 22-metre-high lighthouse on the cliffs of Cap Formentor, the end of the peninsula with the
same name in Mallorca. On the next pictures you will see even more of the peninsula itself.
It is the first autonomous model of the new manufacturer. Of course, it is also based on the MQB group construction kit. It would most likely be comparable with the

Copper brown is the cupra colour. It appears again and again in the signet on the front, rear and inside of the steering wheel, on the decorative seams and air vents and, for more than 2,500 € extra, on rims and 18-inch
Brembo brakes. For 1,300 € there is an openable panoramic roof with protective roller blind available. Very nice but not quite cheap at over 2,000 €: Petrol Blue Matt and Magnetic Grey Matt.
