The Cupra Formentor bears a heavy burden on its muscular frame. The first model to be developed exclusively by Cupra, this is a coupé SUV crossover that attempts to blend performance with SUV traits. To complicate matters further, here in plug-in hybrid form (PHEV), it’s arguably also got to be clean and light on fuel use. It’s a tall order and we couldn’t wait to test it out, so here are our first impressions of the Cupra Formentor PHEV (2021-).
