Cupra Formentor and Leon Estate ranges expanded with new derivatives

It gives the sporty marque its widest choice of options yet

Cupra is expanding its range once again, with further new derivatives of its Formentor SUV and Leon Estate being introduced. 

This year is proving a big one for the Spanish firm since it split from Seat, launching the Formentor as its first bespoke model, and with the arrival of sportier versions of the Leon. 

And joining existing petrol engines in the Cupra Formentor is a new e-Hybrid PHEV model, which is available from £35,770. This combines a 1.4-litre petrol engine with an electric motor and 12.8kWh battery for a combined 201bhp and 330Nm of torque, enabling a 0-60mph time of 7.6 seconds.

Cupra also claims this model can travel for 37 miles on electricity when fully charged, allowing for up to 235.4mpg, and CO2 emissions of 27g/km – the latter giving the model a benefit-in-kind of 11 per cent for company car drivers. 

Also joining the Formentor range is a pair of new 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol engines, with power outputs of 187bhp and 242bhp available. Both come with four-wheel-drive, with prices starting from £32,000 and £34,155 respectively.

Cupra is also expanding the range of the Leon Estate, which sees a 306bhp 2.0-litre petrol engine being introduced, which comes with all-wheel-drive too. The model can go from 0-60mph in just 4.7 seconds and hit a top speed limited to 155mph. Prices for this sporty estate model start from £38,475.

Both new versions are on sale now and can be configured online or at Cupra’s dedicated 58 dealers.
